97 teams battled it out at the Dana Point State BBQ Championship

2014 Dana Point State BBQ Championship brought 97 teams to the breezy and sunny Dana Point, CA. This was a KCBS  (Kansas City BBQ Society) sanctioned event and the largest BBQ competition on the west coast. Teams from California, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, and Arizona competed for a share of $30,000 in prize money.

This event is so large that it took up three fields in Sea Terrace Park. Field A housed BBQ Teams and a tent to purchase BBQ Tasting Tickets. Field B housed BBQ Teams, a tent to purchase BBQ Tasting Tickets, Beverage Area, Judging Area, and Public Tasting Area. Field C housed BBQ Teams, a tent to purchase BBQ Tasting Tickets, Beverage Area, Entertainment, Food Court, Public Tasting Area, and Vendor Area.

Here’s a sampling of teams that you might encounter at the next KCBS event:

SmokyDoky Barbecue, from Torrance, CA, served up brisket for the public tasting. The brisket was Texas style with a meaty flavor and tender. The peppery sauce was pretty good for Texas style. Rating: 3.5/5
  • KCBS Brisket Category – placed 71 out of 97 (Score 156.5028)
  • KCBS Overall – placed 86 out of 97 (Score 621.5768)
