Welcome to the Great Maine BBQ Challenge
“Be it known to all we, the members of the senate and the House of Representatives join in recognizing The Great Maine Barbeque Challenge at Bass Park in Bangor Maine, an annual event Sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society and Northeast Barbecue Society, as the official State Barbeque Championship of the State of Maine. The competition will be held at Bass Park in Bangor, Maine, surrounded by the picturesque Penobscot River with beautiful walking paths and easy access to downtown Bangor. The unique spirit of the Greater Bangor Region is evident in its charming, shops, delicious dining and world-class performing arts. The opportunity to indulge in culture and nature will beckon you at every turn and it is all within a very short drive.
This event gets bigger and better every year. The new location in the center of the harness racing track at the Hollywood Raceway and Casino was a popular location in 2017. For the third year in a row the prize pool is increasing. The 2018 event features a combined $25,000 prize pool (5k NEBS, 20k KCBS), one of the largest in the region.
Competitors: this event will count towards the 2018 NEBS Classic and Ken Dakai TOY points.
