The 23rd annual Colorado BBQ Challenge began Thursday, June 16 with a Fela Kuti tribute by The Motet and Euforquestra. On Friday, vendors opened their booths for a full day of barbecue goodness. This Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned event attracts more than 70 teams from across the country to compete for top honors as the best barbecuers in the Rocky Mountains. The Challenge includes pig races, a 6K Bacon Burner run, live music and a whole lot of barbecue. The event continues today with live music all day, and the BBQ Awards Ceremony at 4 p.m. at the BlueStar Kitchen Stage on 2nd Avenue and Main Street.
