The 2016 Barn Burner BBQ competition and festival is at Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry in Yarrow March 20

Chilliwack BBQ lovers heading to Yarrow Sunday

Second annual Barn Burner BBQ runs at The Farm Store at Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry March 20, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The smell of slow-cooked beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken and ribs will be wafting over Yarrow this Sunday as the second annual Barn Burner BBQ competition arrives.

The free-to-attend, family-friendly barbecue event is fun for guests, but is also the first event of the competition barbecue season officially sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society.

The competition pit masters will battle in four main categories: beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken, and ribs.

The winning team with the highest total points in all four categories will take home their share of $5,000 in prize money along with the Barn Burner BBQ Grand Championship trophy and bragging rights.

The teams also compete in a “Black Box” cook off, and Iron Chef-style competition that gives the chefs a chance to show off their more creative side.

Chef Dez is back as emcee, while meat lovers can enjoy live bands, a climbing wall, face painting and free samples of delicious barbecue.

• The event is co-presented by Johnston’s Pork and Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry (FVSP) and is at the Farm Store in Yarrow, 4540 Simmons Rd., March 20, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
