Mother Nature shined on the first day of the ‘Blues Brews & BBQ’ event in
Brentwood . There was a slight breeze to keep the competitors on their watch to produce award winning barbeque. Today Scott & Pam Hares of the “Too Ashamed to Name” competition barbeque team took the walk to the platform and claimed the ‘Grand Champion”. The combined scores from the four meat categories; chicken, pork ribs, pork and brisket propelled them to the top. Ms. Goofy and I were privileged to help score these meaty entries. We can both attest that this was some of the best barbeque that we have ever had. California
Children are an important factor of this barbeque equation proven by this home made booth sign. The young artist is a future barbeque competitor. This event has something for everybody. A car show with vintage and custom showings lined the side of the venue. Crafts booths with a farmer selling cherries were ripe for your shopping pleasure. These booths were surrounded by some of
Brentwood’s finest boutique and chain stores. You could shop to you drop.
There was plenty to eat today. There was a ‘People Choice’ category for the public to sample the competitor’s offerings. If that did not float your boat there was everything from hot dogs to pizza and ice cream. We are waiting for the KCBS to add a pizza category to the competition. This pizza rig was standing by just in case.. I will not mention the Microbrewery that was a block away. Of course plenty of ice cold
Sierra Nevada beer was available for consumption.
One of the best things about this competition is we get to repeat it again today. Yes, if you missed the festivities yesterday there is still time to eat, shop, listen to Blues and enjoy a barbeque day in
Brentwood. Hope to see you there.
