WW Blacktopping Presents the 8th Annual “Kiwanis Mankato CookOut”! We are pleased to welcome the top Pitmasters from around the country to our event this year as well as many returning amateurs from the area. This event is a focus on our Community, its Residents, and Non-Profit Organizations from the Greater Mankato Area. All proceeds from this event go to local charities to benefit all the residents of the Greater Mankato Area. Since our first year we have raised in total over $32,000.00, we are honored to be part of an ADA accessible park, Wing Over White Oaks Park. This event is a Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) BBQ competition that showcases Pro competitors alongside Local Backyard Pitmasters.

Whats going on: For only $10 you will get samples of the most mouth watering BBQ Pork,Ribs, or Chicken that your lips have ever came in contact with. Many great businesses and organizations will get involved with this years event. We would like to thank Busters Bar and Grill, WW Blacktopping, Compart Family Farms, Sams Club, Walmart, Community Bank, Pepsi of Mankato, North America Branding, and Kibble Equipment. This event wouldn't be able to take place without our sponsors or the great partnership we have with Kiwanis for their continued support in our efforts to make Mankato a better place.
