LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. - When you think of barbecue, Kansas City often comes to mind. But this weekend, Lee's Summit was in the spotlight.
The cast and crew from the "BBQ Pitmasters" reality series spent the weekend at the third annual "Smokin' on the Summit," where three pre-selected teams were judged on two meats for an upcoming episode.
Barbecue connoisseurs, like Ron Rogers, were excited to see the judges.
"It's exciting to see them here, to see the back side story of it and everything that's going on," Rogers said.
Rogers has been barbecuing professionally for less than a year. He was thrilled to learn that his team, Fifty Shades of Que, was right across from the crews.
The Lee's Summit episode of "BBQ Pitmasters" is scheduled to air the weekend before Labor Day.
