The Anchor City Cook Off ocurrs in beautiful downtown Centralia, Missouri. Check back to dates and mark your calendars for the Anchor City Cook Off! Enjoy great food from vendors and a great fall day.

This year we will have many returning teams and individuals all trying to win this KCBS Sanctioned State Championship BBQ Contest. If eating great barbecue and enjoying homemade desserts is more to your liking then we invite you to spend a great fall afternoon in Missouri smelling great barbecue, enjoying many different types and of course, having a piece of homemade pie to top off the day.

Contests include:

  • KCBS Sanctioned BBQ Contest
  • Backyard BBQ Contest
  • Kids-Que BBQ Contest
  • One Bite Wonder
  • and more!

This is a favorite regional event here in central Missouri and it's worth the drive from anywhere in the state.

Come join us and bring an appetite!
