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.)
