In March 2019, 50-plus competition teams will fill Stagecoach Park with award-winning barbecue in the inaugural Qlathe BBQ Championship presented by The Kansas City BBQ Store.

"March is a great kickoff for us because we start to get the winter blues when we aren’t cooking. So [Qlathe] being the first competition of the year and the kickoff to the Midwest barbecue circuit is perfect.”

— Kim Collier, Kansas City Barbecue Society.
