MASON CITY, Iowa – There’s more to the Up in Smoke BBQ Bash this year than just competition BBQ.

For the first time at the event, cooks are participating in the 100,000 Meals Mission.

It’s an effort put fourth by the Kansas City Barbeque Society, with the goal of providing 100,000 meals to the hungry.

KCBS paid for pork butts that were supplied from Walmart in Mason City. Each team will cook the pork, and will then donate them to the Community Kitchen in Mason City.

Stewart Anderson with team Frankenque is cooking one of the pork butts. He says his team wanted to give back to their community, and this was a fun,, and easy way to do so.
