Boydton’s Big Bad BBQ Battle has been cancelled this year. 

According to a social media post on the event’s Facebook page, the event that is usually held in August of each year, did not have enough volunteers and only four teams had registered to compete. 

The post went on to explain that the “event requires a lot of time and money to pull it off… the decision was whether to move ahead and spend a large amount or to cancel and cut our losses now.” 

The event coordinators decided it would be best to cancel this year’s event before spending time and money on the event without an adequate amount of teams and volunteers to make it a success. 

Boydton’s Big Bad BBQ Battle was sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society and this year’s competition would have marked the third event since the sanction by KCBS.
