Welcome to the 2016 KCFoodGuys.com KC BBQ Bracket. It’s our pleasure to host this event pitting Kansas City’s beloved BBQ favorites against each other to find the ultimate KC BBQ Champion. Like last year we will run two BBQ brackets. In the first bracket winners are selected by the KCFoodGuys.com crew and hand selected mystery diners. We started our judging back in February and are tasting our way through the bracket. In the second bracket, known as the People’s Choice bracket, winners are selected by the voting public. The contestant with the most votes in each matchup will advance to the next round and their votes will reset back to zero. Website visitors will be allowed to vote once per round and will receive coupons from participating restaurants for doing so. If you are a BBQ restaurant that hasn’t submitted your coupon yet and want to participate please contact us. Here are the voting time frames and deadlines for each round.

|Round 2||32 to 16||Voting runs from March 16th thru March 19th 10pm|

Last year KCFoodGuys.com selected Q39 as their inaugural KC BBQ Bracket Champion while the People’s Choice bracket winner was Joe’s Kansas City. We’ll see if both Q39 & Joe’s are able to defend their titles in 2016 as both are returning as #1 seeds. This years KCFoodGuys.com KC BBQ Bracket Champion will be announced on April 5th for both brackets. Below are the first round matchups. Round 1 selections for the People’s Choice bracket need to be submitted by March 15th at 10pm.
