The Great American Barbecue Contest boasts a theme of: FOOD, FUN AND PHILANTHROPY.   Since our beginning in 2005 – we have donated to approximately 40 charities in the local and regional area of Kansas City. We strongly support this kind of giving and continue to give with many meals cooked for the charitable organizations as well as cash donations over $180,000 and thousands of pounds of food to hungry families.   We are proud of our ability to give and want to continue for many more years.
