Handmade Bars Built in Less than 8 Hours at the World’s Largest BBQ Competition

Last weekend, the world’s largest BBQ competition took place in Kansas City, Mo. as more than 600 chefs and 100,000+ attendees descended on the American Royal World Series of BBQ.

George Dickel Tennessee Whisky hosted their Raising the Bar competition at the event to celebrate the beauty behind the hand crafted hard work that goes into this mecca of meat.  The rules were simple – six teams of three craftsmen had eight hours to build a badass bar from scratch.  They could weld, saw and hammer to their heart’s delight, but they couldn’t leave the set and at day’s end, the bar had to be capable of pouring a shot of George Dickel.

The results are below!
