A Smokin' Good Time

Tasty, Tangy Barbecue  Ice Cold Beer   Fresh Roasted Green Chilies   Live Music

And plenty of food and entertainment for the whole family!

July 31 & August 1, 2015

There's no place better to spend a day on earth than the San Luis Valley in the summer. Come join us for the San Luis Valley Beat the Heat BBQ, a sanctioned Kansas City Barbecue Society and Rocky Mountain Barbecue Association State Championship event. We'll have BBQ for eatin', cold beer to wet your whistle, and roasters going so you can stock up on fresh Green Chilies. Live music runs all day Saturday and there will be food booths, kid's games and family entertainment. 

Like any good BBQ competition, cookers will compete for prizes in chicken, pork, ribs, and brisket, along with dessert and Anything But categories, all judged by certified Kansas City BBQ Society judges.  Vote for your favorite cooker with the People's Choice category, and even kids can get in on the action with the Kids-Q cook-off.
