Blue Ridge BBQ Festival

Blue Ridge BBQ Festival... It's this weekend in Tryon, NC. Anybody gonna be there? (besides me?)

I'll be cooking with Jack Waiboer and the "Common Interest" team. Big GQ will also be there rounding out the team (and making a monkey of himself).

If you're there stop by and say hi.

Good luck! This will be the first time in several years that I haven't gone to Tryon (as a spectator only).

Good Luck!

My wife and I are planning to check out the competition and festival events on Saturday. It will be the first time I've ever attended a BBQ competition.

Panther, stop by the Common Interest site and tell I sent you.
They'll either hook you up with some grub or they may beat
you senseless, but the grub is worth the risk.

Thanks Morgan,
Hopefully, the former rather than the latter. Of course, it wouldn't take much to put a hurtin' on my aging, scrawny butt. I'll check them out and root for them to have a great showing.

You know they'll be there... Just bought a new pair. Now I've got a pair with holes and a pair without holes (when it's more formal). LOL

We got 5th in ribs... (I think everything else was low 20s)
Our 'Anything Butt' was either 6th or 8th.
I think everyone from the forum that was there got a call for something!!!

I think we came in 22nd overall (don't remember exactly, but I'll update this later) out of just under 100 teams.

I'll add some pics later.

Since Double D is modest, I will say it: 3RD OVERALL!!! Nice job Dennis
Also the other half of Swamp Willy's was 5TH overall, Good job Willy T.
Congrats to Finney and everyone else.
