Welcome to the Great Maine BBQ Challenge, as proclaimed by our governor as a State Championship and
a KCBS and NEBS sanctioned BBQ competition in the state of Maine in 2017. 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’s all within a very short drive.
The Great Maine BBQ Challenge will be a three‐day, pet friendly event. Friday the excitement begins
with set up and preparation. Saturday will hold a NEBS competition followed by a KCBS
sanctioned contest on Sunday.
A big hit with the teams last year, now the event is a shorter drive for most of New England, and features a 20k prize pool, one of the largest in the region. (3K NEBS, 17K KCBS)
Competitors: this event will count towards 2017 NEBS Classic and Ken Dakai TOY points.
