‘Pack up the wagons’; we are heading to Lake Havasu Arizona for our first KCBS competition bbq event of the season. We will dust off our judge’s badges and prepare our appetite for some of the best bbq in Arizona. This “2nd Annual HAVA BBQ London Bridge Style event” will be a state championship. Lake Havasu is home to the famous ‘London Bridge”. I have no idea what ‘London Bridge Style’ bbq is, but we are excited to find out. The event will be held February 25-26. Scheduled for Friday is a chili-cook-off. We will be observing and tasting chili with the festive crowd. ‘Chuck E. Bumps and the Crocodiles’ will be entertaining us with their music. Saturday will be the main bbq competition. The public will have the opportunity to purchase samples of bbq and vote for the ‘Peoples Choice’ award.
One very important note to this competition will be the first time our friend Donna Fong will be competing. Her team “Butcher’s Daughter BBQ” will be the first Asian Women competition bbq team. We wish her the best of luck.
If I can find a little break in the rain, some burnt ends will be prepared to warm up our bbq palette. I leave you with “FIRE”
