Music and BBQ come to a crossroads at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville, CA. Your will be mesmerized by Pop, Blues, Rock, Old School, and R&B music as your olfactory senses are enticed by the aroma of the nation’s top pit master competing for a championship win sanctioned by the prestigious Kansas City Barbecue Society.
