For some finger-lickin’, napkin-stickin’ fun, come to the Lake of the Ozarks Blues & BBQ festival June 1-3, 2012. Lake of the Ozarks’ own Burnt Ends BBQ will be hosting this inaugural event.

The total purse for winners of this BBQ cook-off is $10,000.
The KCBS has a long-standing history of promoting BBQ throughout the country. This non-profit organizes and produces special BBQ competitions to provide information on the latest grilling techniques, products and equipment as well as offering assistance to charities and civic organizations when they are trying to host fundraising and informational events.
