The Border War BBQ is scheduled for October 27-28, 2017.  Several teams have expressed concern that our event will be the same weekend as the American Royal.  We scheduled our event to be the 4th weekend in October, to be held the same weekend as the Jack Daniel’s World Championships, as it has been for years.  Should the Jack change their weekend to accommodate the American Roay, we will request KCBS to move our event to the same weekend as the Jack.


Registration for the event is done online and will begin this summer.  If you participated in our event over the last several years, you will be sent an email notifying you when the online registration is open.  If you have not previously competed at our event or your contact information has changed from 2016, please send your email and contact information to

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in October!
