Eric “Bubba” Burkhart 1 On 1 Competition Training Raffle

American Royal Grand Champion Eric Burkhart has been gracious enough to donate his time and knowledge to help raise money for The St. Louis BBQ Society’s Team Of The Year.


The individual who wins this raffle will have the chance of a lifetime to work side by side with an American Royal Grand Champion at a live competition. You will be able to see every process, recipe, technique, and timeline that Eric uses in a true competition atmosphere. There are teams all over the country getting calls and winning trophies from taking Eric’s class but be the first to learn as his right-hand man.


The St. Louis BBQ Society will be selling tickets online and at SLBS events till May 30 and we will draw a winner on Facebook live on May 31 at 5:30pm CST.
