The Montana Pitmaster Classic is a community event that will benefit the Gallatin Valley YMCA. This
event is a KCBS (KANSAS CITY BBQ SOCIETY) sanctioned competition happening at Kenyon Noble Lumber & Hardware
of Bozeman. Professional and amateur contestants from the Northwest and Canada come to compete for the Montana
State Championship of BBQ in the categories of chicken, pork ribs, pork and brisket. The overall highest scorer in all
categories will become the Grand Master of the tournament and state champion, making them eligible for the Kansas
City Royal (one of the biggest barbecue competitions in the world). The Montana Pitmaster Classic is a 2-day, nonprofit
event created to increase awareness of the competitive world of barbecue.
Join us at 1pm on Saturday the 28th to check out the biggest names in BBQ such as Weber, Traeger and Big Green
Egg. Their professional grill masters will be on hand to showcase their grills, reveal new product, give live demos, host
educational classes, and teach new and innovative ways to produce great barbecue. After the competition, sample
what the teams turned in and see what real competition barbecue tastes like. Stick around until 4:30pm to see who
will be crowned the Montana Pitmaster Champion!
