There will be at least 42 teams competing for their slice of $10,000 in prizes. The cooking will be judged by professionally trained judges. The competition is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society.
The barbecue masters will have stiff competition from kid cooks. The KidsQue Challenge returns this year. Children 6 to 17 years old can compete in a grilling challenge. The first place winners in two age groups will walk away with $200.
There will also be a fun zone for kids, a car show and live entertainment. The Boulder City Police Department will face off with the Boulder City Fire Department in a rib-eating competition. The police department won last year. So, people can expect to see a fight for the top prize by the firefighters.
