It’s never too soon to mark your calendars for an epic Santa Maria Style Barbecue feast, so make a note of the second annual Wild West BBQ Bash coming to Preisker Park in Santa Maria on June 26, 2010 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Hosted by the Family Care Network as a benefit for foster and high-needs children and families on the Central Coast, the Wild West BBQ Bash features dozens of expert barbecue teams from Santa Maria and across California competing for the Wild West BBQ Crown.

The teams will compete in six categories: chicken, beef brisket, pork ribs, pork shoulder, “People’s Choice,” and of course, Santa Maria Style tri-tip. The event is sanctioned by the International Barbecue Cookers Association.

Admission to the event is free, and barbecue sampling tickets can be purchased for $2. The family-friendly festivities will include live music, cultural displays and children’s games.

The Wild West BBQ Bash was launched in 2009 to rave reviews. Last year’s competition included seasoned competitors such as Brian Stein of Susie Q’s Brand and Harry Soo of Slap Yo Daddy BBQ featured on TLC’s hit show “Pit Masters” along with local rookies such as Jim Leuthold of Central Coast Smokers and Ron Fleenor of R&R Catering in Santa Maria.
