Mother Nature smiled on the Pros & Joes Grilldown event this Saturday. She held back on the thunder and downpour of rain until after this barbeque meat extravaganza. The skies were overcast but that did not dissuade 1,300 hungry and thirsty Redding residents from attending. This was a contest that pitted professional cookers versus the backyard grilling enthusiasts. Boy was there enthusiasm among the ranks of cookers.
The crowd was treated to many different grilled and smoked food items. The hungry public traveled booth to booth sampling foods from whole cooked Hog to jalapeno poppers. Once they have had there fill, they voted on the ’Peoples Choice award.’ Ribs, chicken and tri-tip was the meat prepared for the judges. Our judging duty was very difficult to pick out the best out of so many tasty entries.
“The Billys” band provided music to create a festive atmosphere.There was a lot of full and happy people. The results were tallied and the winners were declared.

This is a fun local event. Ms. Goofy’s sister Shastina judged for the second time.and now has the BBQ bug. I am sure she will become a certified KCBS judge in the near future. Speaking of certifiable, My Bro-In-Law John is considering letting me drive his Harley around the Shasta Dam. Today might be the day.
