A Traditional Sanctioned Contest requires the teams to cook 4 meats- Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork Butt, & Beef Brisket to be judged.

Friday night will be the celebration of Wyandotte’s WBA 3rd Friday - Mayor Joe Peterson’s BBQ Rib Throwdown from 5pm to 10pm by New City Hall in Downtown Wyandotte. This annual competition allows for the local residents and restaurants to compete in the BBQ festivities as well. WBA 3rd Friday will have food and live entertainment for the public to enjoy.

Most KCBS teams will arrive Friday morning on May, 20th as teams begin to set up their camp and get checked in. Also, most KCBS teams will light their smokers Friday evening to start their pork butt & brisket. The teams will take shifts throughout the night tending to the smoker. On Saturday morning, May 21st, the chicken and pork ribs will be started. This is the official start of KCBS sanctioned event, WBA Pork in the Park. The event will run from 10am to 6pm. WBA Pork in the Park is organized by the Wyandotte Business Association, the same organization that coordinates the Downtown Wyandotte’s WBA 3rd Friday events.

The festivities will be held at Wyandotte City Hall located at Biddle Ave & Eureka Road address is 3200 Biddle Ave Wyandotte MI 48192.

The KCBS sanctioned event will conclude with an award ceremony with a chance for the KCBS teams to win a purse worth $8,000.
