Westmont's Red, White and BBQ festival returns this weekend
WESTMONT – Professional chefs, amateur grillers and thousands of meat enthusiasts will fill Westmont’s Ty Warner Park for the seventh annual Red, White and BBQ festival, which kicks off Friday.
The cookoff – which extends through Sunday – is run by the Westmont Lions Club and sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, the largest organization of its kind in the country. The event has grown in popularity every year and now is touted as the largest BBQ competition in Illinois and the third-largest in the Midwest.
Red, White and BBQ will be the scene of an upcoming Destination America “BBQ Pitmasters” episode. The show’s hosts will film a semifinal “pitmaster” competition all weekend, bringing several challengers from throughout the United States. It airs on The Discovery Channel.
