Jeff Clark, owner of Sands Restaurant, displays his world record Pork Burger. Jeff was the driving force for the Silver Lake Sand Dunes BBQ Cook-off held each year on the second Saturday of September. The Annual event is sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society and draws thousands of visitors to the Silver Lake Sand Dunes. It is a fun time and provides another good reason to visit Oceana County in the fall.

Kansas City Barbeque Society

The Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) was founded in 1986. With over 10,000 members worldwide, it is the world’s largest organization of barbecue and grilling enthusiasts. KCBS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to "promoting barbecue as America's cuisine and having fun while doing so."

KCBS sanctions nearly 300 barbecue contests across the U.S. each year and offers assistance to civic and charitable organizations with producing these events. The KCBS has developed a set of rules and regulations that govern all official KCBS competitions.

KCBS offers educational programs, consultation services and civic organization presentations to help spread the gospel of barbecue. The mission of the Kansas City Barbeque Society is to celebrate, teach, preserve and promote barbecue as a culinary technique, sport and art form.
