If you wanted barbecue, the Kern County Fairgrounds was the place to be Saturday for Bakersfield's Biggest Baddest BBQ.

Twenty-five local teams were slated to show off their cooking skills in the the Kansas City Barbecue Society-sanctioned event.

Proceeds from the competition benefit JJ's Legacy, an organ and tissue donation advocacy organization.

Californian photographer Felix Adamo shares these images from the day.
