Each episode is shot from a different location around the country. DESTINATION AMERICA is part of Discovery Communications which includes TLC, Animal Planet, Discovery, ID and others.
In its third year, SMOKIN’ on the Summit BBQ is a fundraiser presented by Saint Luke's East Hospital and the Downtown Lee’s Summit Rotary Club and is held in conjunction with the Downtown Days Festival. It is KCBS sanctioned and a Missouri State Championship event. DESTINATION AMERICA's executives selected the SMOKIN’ on the Summit BBQ from other similar competitions nationwide.
When ask about being selected by DESTINATION AMERICA's BBQ Pitmasters, Lee's Summit Downtown Rotary Club President Cheryl Julo replied, "When you consider the success of our event in the first two years, the crowds that are drawn to the festival environment of Downtown Days and the charming, picturesque atmosphere of beautiful downtown Lee's Summit, our event was absolutely the best choice. This will be a great addition to the event and an added bonus to Downtown Days. We love to show off Lee's Summit!"
Up to 80 barbecue teams will compete for a $10,000 purse and the right to be the 2013 Grand Champion of one of the Midwest's premiere BBQ competitions.
