For any of my BBQ Team friends who are competing this weekend…. Good luck if you’re competing and hope you have the Tri-State on your calendar for April 13-14, 2012!
Good luck at the National BBQ Championship in Waycross, Ga.
And also in our home state of Alabama, in Livingston is the Sucarnochee BBQ & Blues Cook-off. It is sanctioned by the KCBS.
Finally, the BIG DEAL for many in Georgia is also this weekend, the Big PIg Jig. Now in its 30th year, this is a huge festival sanctioned by the Memphis BBQ Network. A little history on their home page states, “Often imitated but not yet duplicated, BIG PIG JIG® remains the southeast’s largest and Georgia’s oldest OFFICIAL barbecue cooking contest. BIG PIG JIG® was born in Vienna, Georgia when a group of self-professed gourmets made wagers on who among them could cook the most succulent pig!”
