Rollin on the American Rivers Sales Event


Our American River BBQ Challenge pits regional barbecue enthusiasts against our talented culinary teams throughout each voyage. The styles of American barbeque are varied and numerous, and voyagers on these special itineraries will get to taste a little piece of America, with the winner to be determined by guests. Three barbeque masters – from New Madrid and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and Chester, Illinois – have been picked to participate in our festivities.   

The best of the best in the barbecue business create unique experiences in each port along the way. Guests will indulge in each authentic, local culinary craft, and then rate each participant – including the American Queen Steamboat Company culinary team. Take in the savory scents that enrich the air from these masters’ smokers – authentic Americana at its finest – and embark on a Mississippi River adventure through mid-America.
