As millions of amateur grill masters fire up the coals (or gas) this weekend, we thought we’d give you a brief calendar on where you can catch the pros doing the same thing. Between the KCBS and the ICS, barbecue and chili competitions, there’ll be plenty of hot, spicy grub to check out as the nation celebrates another year of independence from British rule (at least until the next royal wedding). For more information, visit www.kcbs.us/index.php or www.chilicookoff.com.
