Kids Q Preview

Posted: Updated:

 It's a battle for the tastiest chicken at the first annual "Kids Q" at the MontanaFair BBQ.

Children ages 6 to 16 will prep, season, and cook the chicken on their own attempting to beat each other out for bragging rights, and some prizes. Each team will be firing up chicken thighs for a first prize of $100 plus a trophy. Judges will award prizes from 1st to 10th place in the contest using scoring rules from the Kansas City BBQ Society. Eight-year-old Kids Q Contestant Wyatt Hamilton describes his method of barbecuing.

"At the top of fifteen or seventeen minutes, take a little bit of butter and then I just drizzle it over the top of the chicken," says Hamilton.

Check in and set up begins at 9:30 Wednesday at the MontanaFair Service Gate by the Rimrock Auto Arena Exhibit Hall on the lower level. Each team turns in seven chicken thighs at the official turn in at 1:30.
