The World Series of Barbecue

By Linda Tancs

All hail the king of barbecue:  Kansas City, Missouri’s American Royal is the largest barbecue contest in the world.  Beginning tomorrow through 2 October, this four-day annual food festival in Kansas City’s historic Stockyards District is part of the competitive circuit where nearly 500 teams compete in four meat categories.  Of course, what’s a barbecue without the sauce; the competition includes a Sauce Contest for the moniker Sauce Best Sauce on the Planet.  Open to products available commercially, this year the sauces will be judged plain and on unseasoned pulled pork.  The American Royal, a nonprofit organization now in its 112th
year, raises funds for youth and education.  Proceeds from this year’s beverage sales will benefit the American Royal Education and Scholarship Fund.
