Competitive barbecue teams from around Australia will assemble and set up for an American-style cook-off where they’ll battle it out in Western Australia’s first barbecue contest officially sanctioned by the KCBS.

The competition will see competitive barbecue teams cook chicken, pork ribs, pork shoulder and beef brisket in the American low and slow style, judged to strict KCBS guidelines that include taste, tenderness and appearance.

There's over $15,000 in cash and prizes to be won! Thanks to our generous sponsors and prize donors, the Yak Ales Perth Barbecue Festival has a fantastic range of cash and prizes on offer for teams competing in the KCBS-sanctioned cook-off. Check out the full listing of cash and prizes here.

The Grand Champion of the Yak Ales Perth Barbecue Festival Cook-Off will be invited to represent Australia at internationally renowned contests in the United States such as the American Royal World Series Barbecue Invitational, and go into the draw for the prestigious KCBS-run Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational BarbecueUp for the challenge?
