KCBS Sanctioned BBQ Festival

We have added some of our own Wine Country twists to the KCBS competition – the “Winery Big Beef Challenge”.   See who is King of the Grill as winery and vineyard chefs go fork to fork competing for the coveted People’s Choice award for the best barbecue tri-tip and the wines that best complement.

The “Bold Bean Challenge” has teams lighting their fires and showing off their skills on the grill preparing the perfect side dish to accompany great barbecue.

Wine Country Big Q is sure to satisfy anyone’s appetite for great barbecue, world class wine and beer, live entertainment with some fired up friendly competition. Come enjoy this entertaining bbq festival.
