All fired up for Roots ‘n Blues ‘n BBQ

My column in tonight’s Columbia Tribune concerns my (probably ill-advised) entry in the barbeque contest at the Roots ‘n Blues ‘n BBQ Festival. And as luck would have it, SeriousEats.com just put up a mega-post on barbeque contests and festivals around the country.

(Note: I’m glad to not be a judge this year. Two years ago – the last time the RNBNBF organizers scheduled the event the same weekend as American Royal – the entries sucked pretty hard. My thinking then was that the best teams might be lured to Kansas City, but perhaps overall mediocrity is Jackwagon’s window of opportunity.)

  1. Jackwagon is like the STL Cardinals in 2006. Just because the “best” teams didn’t show up at the World Series doesn’t mean we still didn’t win it. A win is a win. Or in our case, not finishing last is still not finishing last, regardless of the competition.

  2. Ladies and gentlemen, my Jackwagon partner, deploying the kind of twisted logic and half-baked metaphors that will lead us to victory/shame.
