The Queen Mary West Coast BBQ Classic is back in Long Beach for its 6th straight year. More than 50 top pitmasters from across the country will gather to compete in this California-State-Certified, Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS)-Sanctioned BBQ Championship for an $11,500 prize purse and the title of West Coast BBQ Pitmaster Grand Champion!

In addition to the Chicken, Pork, Pork Ribs, and Brisket categories, Bacon and Dessert are two new categories that the pitmasters can compete in.
