The Queen Mary welcomes back the West Coast BBQ Classic for an afternoon of finger lickin’ food for the whole family on Saturday, May 10 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The West Coast BBQ Classic is where barbeque experts and amateurs convene for a showdown full of flavor featuring the best in smoking, grilling and all around BBQ.
BBQ styles from around the country sizzle over open flames, drawing on regional flavors from Tennessee, Kansas City, Texas and more. The competition is an official California-State-Certified, KCBS-Sanctioned, BBQ championship, and offers tasting portions from registered pitmasters for $2 apiece. Competition categories include chicken, ribs, pork, and brisket and will be critiqued by judges for a stake in over $10,000 cash prizes and the title of “West Coast BBQ Pitmaster Champion.”
General admission tickets for the West Coast BBQ Classic are $10 online or $15 at the door for adults, and $5 for children ages 4-11. Children 3 and under gain entry for free. Event parking is $12.
