DESIGNATING FOOTHILLS BBQ JAMBOREE AND ITS BBQ COOKOFF CONTEST IN SPARTANBURG COUNTY AS "THE KANSAS CITY BARBEQUE SOCIETY (KCBS) STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA CHAMPIONSHIP BARBEQUE".
Whereas, the Foothills BBQ Jamboree Cookoff Contest is given Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) sanctioning by the board of directors of the KCBS; this prestigious recognition elevates the County of Spartanburg's Foothills BBQ Jamboree into a select group of only fifty contests held throughout the United States; and
Whereas, each year cooking teams must earn points in order to compete at the American Royale World Championship held in Kansas City, Missouri, meaning that Foothills BBQ Jamboree annually hosts a large number of teams from many other states and that Spartanburg County is the showcase for this event; and
Whereas, Foothills BBQ Jamboree attracts thousands of people, has gained national and even international attention for years, and provides excellent publicity for Spartanburg County and the Palmetto State; and
Whereas, in addition to the BBQ Cookoff Contest, the family-oriented festival of Foothills BBQ Jamboree in Spartanburg County offers arts and crafts, a variety of music and entertainment, interactive and educational children's activities, and great family fun for all ages; and
Whereas, designation as a State Championship event permits the grand champion of the BBQ Cookoff Contest at Foothills BBQ Jamboree to receive automatically an invitation to the American Royale World Championship at Kansas City and to the Jack Daniels National Invitational Barbeque Competition at Lynchburg, Tennessee. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, designates Foothills BBQ Jamboree and its BBQ Cookoff Contest in Spartanburg County as "The Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) State of South Carolina Championship Barbeque".
