The Fresno County Historical Society was excited to host our premiere barbeque competition to be held on September 24, 2022, The Great Kearney BBQ Smoke Out, a KCBS Sanctioned Master Series event.

The full day of mouth-watering BBQ along with side dishes and desserts all showcased the bounty of the Valley. We had more than 45 competitors from around the country and many from right here in Fresno County who competed for a prize purse of $8,000 awarded over four categories and Grand Champion.

Guests had the chance to see professionals and amateurs at work on the grill, feast on BBQ and all the fixings while watching live music and enjoying a stroll through our "Fields of Fresno - A Century in the Soil" outdoor agriculture exhibition; all presented in the lush, shade of historic Kearney Park.
