Welcome to West Bottoms Events, LLC! Originally founded based on the love of a hobby of kicking back and enjoying good friends and firing up the grill with some great barbecue, West Bottoms Events was brought into fruition. West Bottoms Events was organized in collaboration with three long-time BBQ competitors and organizers—Jay McClintick, Phil Morrow and Carl McBee, along with other event planners with the common goal of bringing a competitive BBQ contest back to the West Bottoms of Kansas City. After all, it is the home of real Midwestern barbecue. 

With special events like the Fourth of July weekend Grillin’ and Chillin’ in Chillicothe, Missouri, the Annual Cameron, Missouri, Elks BBQ contest, and the North Kansas City BBQ contest on Snake Saturday, we bring years of event planning and organizing experience such as barbecue contests with the ultimate goal of assisting area non-for-profit charities with their fundraising goals. 

Join us for the inaugural West Bottoms Barbecue Contest on September 28-29, 2019!
