KANSAS CITY, MO, UNITED STATES, May 13, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) today announced the second-annual contest series with U.S. Soy. Bringing the #FarmtoFlame, this series features the return of the “Best in Show” U.S. Soy Combine Award at five select KCBS Masters Series events across the U.S. for highest combined scoring across pork, chicken and ribs – all soyfed proteins. 

The event series will add thousands of dollars in prize money, trophies and bragging rights for pitmasters at select KCBS-sanctioned events over the 2024 season. Winning teams will be featured across KCBS’ digital platforms. As with all KCBS contests, meats will be judged on appearance, taste and tenderness.

U.S. Soy is the preferred protein and nutrient source for animal proteins popularly used in barbeque, like chickens, pigs and turkeys.

“As the premier protein source for pigs and chicken, we like to say that good BBQ starts with U.S. Soy,” said U.S. soybean farmer Steve Reinhard, Chair, United Soybean Board (and KCBS Certified Barbeque Judge). “For the second year, we’re thrilled U.S. Soy is partnering with Kansas City Barbeque Society on five events during this year’s KCBS Master Series Tour. Soy provides vital nutrition to the protein sources we enjoy in barbeque. We are excited to connect with pitmasters over top shelf competition BBQ.”
