Come to the Iowa BBQ Expo held at the Paul R. Knapp Animal Learning Center at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines.

This event will focus on various aspects of the world of BBQ with multiple BBQ vendors with items such as knives, grills, smokers, rubs, sauces, bbq accessories and much, much more!

Being in the State of Iowa, we have access to some of the best meats in the U.S. and it would only be natural to have an event to showcase items that will help the general public achieve BBQ greatness right in their own backyard.

The event is planned for Friday, March 17th from 6pm to 8pm and Saturday, March 18th from 9am to 6pm at the Paul R. Knapp center so please mark your calendars to attend.
