Meat + Poultry - Juin 2021 Annual Barbecue Report

The barbecue world appears to be blazing again after competition events this past year were put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Competitive teams are starting to pack up trunks, trailers and campers and trekking across the country again to compete for the top prizes in the pits. The world’s largest annual barbecue competition, the American Royal World Series of Barbecue, was forced to cancel in 2020 due to the pandemic. But organizers have shared the good news with pitmasters around the country that this year’s event will go on as planned from Sept. 16 to 19 at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

“It’s the one time during the year where all of the competitors, from the elites to the amateurs, get together in one space to fire up hundreds of smokers – and have a great

time in the process,” said Glen Alan Phillips, president and chief executive officer of the American Royal.

This will be the 41st year of the weeklong event, which brings together pitmasters of all skill levels and backgrounds to compete in the “open” contest category while qualifying teams are able to participate in the “invitational.”

“As a non-profit focused on agriculture education and advocacy, this is our highest-profile event and biggest fundraiser,” Phillips said. “We can’t wait to fill the Kansas Speedway with an international community of barbecue enthusiasts.”
