Whistlestop Needs Some BBQ Savvy Kids!

Do you have a little cook in your kitchen? Does your daughter or son dream of becoming a Barbecue Master? Teams are forming now for the Kids Q competition at the 18th Annual WhistleStop Weekend at the Historic Huntsville Depot on May 4, 2019. Find out how your young chef can be on a team for FREE below!

While WhistleStop offers a wide variety of activities, it’s the barbeque competition that is the cornerstone. One part of that is the Kids Q competition which pits teams made up of three kids (8-14 years of age) plus one adult against each other. The Kids Q teams cook chicken thighs and are judged by the same rules and standards as all KCBS competitors.
