I found this in the Joplin Globe, page 3A, Wednesday, June 10, 2009. The '09 Braggin' Rights Barbecue Cook-off will be held Saturday at the Fireplace Shoppe, 2120 E. Seventh St. in Joplin. Food will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The second annual event, which is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, will feature smoked chicken and ribs and with all the fixings. The cook-off will take place on a parking lot next to the shop. A minimum donation of $5 is requested. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.
