Don't Bring Your Guns to Town: Jack Daniels BBQ Invitational

I'll have some comments on the Paul Kirk BBQ class that we held this past weekend in a few days-- but that dang thing has been ruling this blog too long.

So....this weekend is Jack Daniel's 18th Annual Invitational Barbecue. Along with the American Royal and Memphis in May, this is about the top of the competition barbecue mountain. Only teams that have won a qualifying state championship with 25 or more teams or a contest with 50 or more teams are entered into the blind drawing for the "Jack"-- so not all of them will get there. The competition to get there is fierce, and once you are there, you know that you're up against it.

Good luck to all the teams out there competing. I hope the weather cooperates. I'll probably be reading about it on my friend Steve's blog, The BBQ Odyssey which is about as close as you can get to the competition without actually being in the smoke. Good luck, Steve!

Thanks, Steve-- hope you come home with some jugs-- the whiskey kind that they give you at the Jack...oh, nevermind.

Mona! Long time no blog (shame on me). I think the voting is still going until December. Thanks for your help on that....whatever happened to our get-together?
