Welcome to the 6th Annual Death's Door Barbeque competition!

Who doesn’t like barbeque? Come to beautiful Washington Island on Friday and Saturday, August 25th & 26th, 2017 for the 6th annual Death’s Door Bar-B-Q (DDBBQ) at the Washington Island Airport. The first five events had visitors raving about the food quality and the friendliness and beauty of Washington Island.

Presented by the Washington Island Ferry Line and the Washington Island Chamber of Commerce, DDBBQ is a KCBS-Sanctioned Competition with 100% certified judges and $8,000 in prize money.

Death’s Door Bar-B-Q opens to the public at the Washington Island Airport on Saturday, August 26th, 2017 at 10 am, with free admission, arts & crafts, kids’ activities, live music, food vendors, and of course – Barbequed Chicken, Pork, Pork Ribs, and Beef Brisket as sold by the DDBBQ competitors.

The event organizers are honored to report that DDBBQ has been chosen as a participant in the Kansas City Barbeque Society charity initiative 100KCBS, whose goal is to donate 100,000 barbecue meals to food pantries across the country during the 2017 competition season.

We are thrilled to be involved and look forward to working with KCBS, local food pantries and our terrific teams to donate some great meals this summer.
