The fourth annual barbecue-a-palooza that is the Blues, Views & BBQ festival is almost here. Sept. 23, 24 and 25, hungry fans of down home style barbecue will converge on Westport's Levitt Pavilion for the venues final, delicious hurrah of the season.
Its hard to imagine so much authentic barbecue can exist on the east coast, but when this outdoor space is converted into one big, down-and-dirty barbecue pit, even Dorothy would feel like she was back in Kansas City.
Whats on the menu? For starters, the Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned Cookin for a Cause. This local backyard charity cook-off is for pros and amateurs alike, and features four categories: chicken, ribs, chefs choice and dessert. The festival will offer winners prizes in every category, but if you plan to sample these chefs wares, you really cant lose. The money raised by the contest will be donated to the Westport Womans Club Food Closet, an emergency food distribution program.
And if you still havent got your fill, you can enter the pie or rib eating contests.
