There are many elements to the Salt City BBQ Festival.  Whether you are a BBQ restaurant or vendor, a BBQ team, a backyard grilling extraordinaire  or a business that would like help us raise funds for homeless veterans you can find the information here.  If after reading this information you have more questions please feel free to call or write.

The Salt City BBQ Festival is also a food drive to feed the homeless in our area.   The Salt City BBQ Festival is part of the Kansas City BBQ Society mission to feed 250,000 people. The festival will be collecting non-perishable food items that will be donated to the Salvation Army for their Syracuse area shelters.  The BBQ portion of the donation is pork butts cooked by the professionals competing in our competition.  This cooked BBQ will go to the Salvation Army and Clear Path for Veterans, a local veterans service agency. Non-perishable food donations will be collected at the Phoenix Philosophies booth.
