Open to All Competitors - Vending Allowed

attention barbecue enthusiasts!

We Invite YOU to Rock-N-Q on the Planes Open BBQ Contest

A letter from Competition Director, Kent Romine

For over 20 years, I have chaired the Central Kansas BBQ contest and Kansas Winter Q contest for the Barton County Fair.  I watched it grow from an idea to bring in more people to our fair during the summer, to another part of our community events in the late winter months. The 2017 contest was my “RETIREMENT PARTY” from BBQ.

Well... My retirement lasted about 5 months. A group of enterprising individuals from GREAT BEND approached me to come out of retirement and spearhead the National BBQ Championship. MY dream has finally came true. BBQ and Music what a combination! What a PARTY!!! 

 

Welcome to Rock-N-Q on the Planes, this exciting two day Rock & Roll and BBQ Festival featuring amazing bands at the site of a WWII army air base and national historic dragstrip. Great music and food is our goal!

Rock-N-Q on the Planes Open Cook-Off will be held on October 19 & 20, 2019 here in Great Bend, Kansas following the Top 50 Head 2 Head National Championship Invitational. “Come early and Stay Late“ has always been our motto. We are allowing teams to come as early as Wednesday, October 16th. Come cook with the Top 50 teams in the nation and compete for BIG dollars. The total payout for Rock-N-Q on the Planes is $25,000 in addition to the $20,000 paid out for the National Championship!

The cooks' meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on October 19, 2019 at the Expo 1 Building located at the Great Bend Expo Complex, 2.5 miles west of Great Bend city limits. We will use the standard KCBS turn-in times on Sunday, September 20, 2019.

 

We are also allowing our BBQ teams to Vend to the public. We want to make this as easy as possible for our cooks, while allowing the public to experience True Competition BBQ. We will have a booth to convert MONEY into Tokens. We will pay the teams that vend 75%, and Destination GB & Barton County Fair 25% of money collected. 
 

WOW, GREAT BBQ & MUSIC, sounds like a GREAT PARTY! The address for the events listed is 455 W. Barton County Rd (or 995 G Avenue) depending on your GPS settings.

Destination GB and the City of Great Bend would like to extend a THANK YOU to all who participate in this cook-off. Please feel free to call me on my cell phone 620-793-2985 to discuss “Great BBQ.”

 

Sincerely

Kent J. Romine
