‘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”
Oh, goodie! I can't wait to hear all about it! And, remind me, where is the restaurant in Marin that offers burnt ends? I'm in the mood.
Zoomie, You will have to ask the 'Mad' one that lives in Marin. That was her claim.
Zoomie, it's Roadside BBQ in Northgate. I don't think they're called "burnt ends" there but you can figure it out from the menu.
Chilebrown, you are a madcap mad genius! Make sure you have your passport when you go to Arizona, because they will kill illegals. Also, don't try getting a liver transplant there; they'll just let you die. But the BBQ might be good.
Cookiecrumb, Hmmmmmm? Burnt ends that are not called burnt ends?
Maybe, I should fly my freak flag when I am in Arizona.
Chilebrown, just wear a 'Keep Austin Weird' t-shirt and they'll greet you like family ;-)
Zia, I would not mind going back to Austin just to get the t-shirt.
No sheet? That sounds like GREAT fun! I'll bet they have great hot turkey sammiches in Arizona, I'll just bet. Bring me back a t-shirt, XL, I'll pay!
I hope it's warmer there ...
Doctor, No problemo! I wish you were going too!
