A ground-breaking event comes to Sisters Saturday. Brews, Views and Bar-B-Ques is a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned barbeque event. What that means is, the very prestigious KCBS will be providing judges and organizers to conduct the competition, and everyone can see the pit masters at work. "They can talk to them. Of course I don't guarantee that they will give their secrets away. But you can talk to them. Ask them some questions. You know, everyone likes to talk about their bar-be-cue. So, you can learn a lot and you can taste some bar-be-cue." Jeri Buckmann with the Sisters Chamber of Commerce says the event begins on Saturday with the pits being fired up and the meat getting on the smoke or heat, and judging is Sunday. Roy Slick, owner of Slick’s Barbeques in Bend and Sisters says he’s very excited to have the competition in his backyard. He’s well known among the barbeque circuit, and last year drove over 6000 miles sampling “que” from all over the nation. He’s also the President elect of the National Barbeque Association. The Sister’s event also features other food booths, music and a beer garden. It will be across the street from the Les Schwab in Sisters and it's free to attend.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
