Judged the inaugural Pigs & Pedals bbq contest in Asheboro NC yesterday. The weather was overcast and misty. A really cool day for the first of August. A nice turn out (32 teams) for a first year contest. Looks like the organizers did a very good job of putting this contest together.
A big shout out and congratulations to our friend Tommy of Checkered Pig for taking Grand!
Last weekend we made a trip to Bowling Green KY to a cooking class. We had a great trip! The hotel was very nice and at a great price.
We attended cooking class in the holler at the Warren County Pork Choppers July class. Great bunch of folks! Ran into our old friends Phillip & Kathy Brazier and met some new ones.
Top notch folks there in the holler, served us 2 great meals. Stir fry of chicken and beef on Friday night and a big breakfast of eggs, deep fried bacon, sausage, hashbrown casserole, biscuits and gravy.
The class was great, and we picked up some tips, so it is practice time now. See if we can do it Chopper style! The new classroom building will make it even more awesome.
Hope everyone has a wonder 4th!. We cooked up about 165 lbs of bbq this year. Along with the standard fare of beans and slaw!
Judged at Lincolnton again this year. Mostly young teams competing this year, not very many we were familiar with. Also had an opportunity to judge a portion of the backyard teams competing this year. It was definitely an interesting experience.
It was a hot one on Friday! A very large crowd came out on Friday night to hear the Avett Brothers. Maybe all that practicing on ribs over the winter is paying off. We placed 5th in ribs and finished 8th overall out of 65. It was 65 of a very tough field.
Another good year at the Jiggy with the Piggy contest in Kannapolis. New location on the grounds of the Research Park, which were outstanding. As you can see in the picture, we had some mean looking thunder clouds roll through on Friday. 80 teams competing this year. We placed 3rd in Ribs and finished 10th overall.
