Coming Soon to a Barbecue Pit Near You…

Right about now, some of us are taking the covers off of our backyard grills and smokers in preparation for a spring and summer full of steaks, burgers, dogs, and ribs. The Kansas City Barbecue Society is getting pretty busy too, and I thought it’d be a good idea to let you know what events they’ve got lined up for April 2012. You can see a more complete listing for the year here.
