This past weekend, the American Royal World Series of BBQ kicked off in Kansas City, Missouri, where more than 600 chefs and 100,000+ attendees descended to the largest BBQ competition on the planet. During the event, George Dickel Tennessee Whisky hosted the "Raising the Bar" competition which challenged six teams of three to design the best handmade bar in eight hours or less. Everyone knows that whisky and BBQ goes hand-in-hand, and so did the teams of craftsmen eager to step to this year's challenge.
