Held in Minonk, IL the I-39 Smokin' BBQ and Car Show is a fun filled weekend featuring a KCBS sanctioned BBQ smoke off, Backyard BBQ,  live music, great food, and sweet rides thanks to volunteers from local businesses and the community.

Our Mission

I-39 Smokin’ BBQ Car Show’s mission is to bring together a diverse group of individuals for great food, fun, and fellowship in an All American town in Central Illinois with a small town atmosphere and lots of hospitality. By bringing a KCBS event to Minonk, IL it will offer an opportunity for our town and other surrounding communities to grow and thrive. Our organization will use the money raised by this event help create future events for our communities to come together with a focus on community, family, and creativity.

THE KANSAS CITY BARBEQUE SOCIETY (KCBS), a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and enjoying barbeque, is the world's largest organization of barbeque and grilling enthusiasts with over 20,000 members worldwide.


KCBS sanctions over 500 barbeque contests world wide. From volunteering to actual event production, our members also offer assistance to civic and charitable organizations who organize events.
