May 29-31, 2015, the quiet town of Norco, CA will be awakened by pitmasters firing up their barbeques and smokers for the Horse Town Brew N’ Que Festival. The aroma of smoked meats will be in the air for this KCBS-sanctioned competition with thousands of dollars in cash and prizes up for grabs, plus bragging rights as Grand Champion.

Along with BBQ, there will also be local craft brewers such as More Beer! and Sons of Liberty Aleworks providing tastes of their IPA, lagers, ales, and more. Music from local bands will provide the toe-tapping entertainment with the sounds of country, blues, pop, and R&B.

Fans of Destination America’s BBQ Pitmasters will get a chance to meet the ultimate BBQ judges, Myron Mixon and Moe Cason. Myron is the Winningest Man in BBQ with over 180 grand championships, 30 state championships, 8 Team of the Year awards, and 11 national championships. He is launching this next book, The BBQ Rules, which hit the stands this month. Moe Cason is a celebrity chef and competitor on the barbeque circuit. He is a multiple Grand and Reserve Champion and has won titles in 35 states. He has also received a perfect score of 180 in chicken, ribs, and pork shoulder. This marks Moe’s first California appearance in a KCBS-sanctioned event.
