Chilebrown at home

Monday, June 23, 2014


The Racing Honda went through several racing slicks on our bbq journey this weekend. We traveled north to Redding California for the first competition of a four part series. This series is called the 'North State Barbeque Championship'. It is a three meat competition consisting of; chicken, ribs, and tri-tip. They will be held at three different casinos and a fairgrounds. Today's competition was held at the 'Win-River Casino'. We were excited to attend this first competition. It is always great to meet and greet old and new friends in the bbq community. The weather hovered in the low nineties to create a warm, balmy environment. Hydration was the key to enjoyment today.. We would like to share a couple of photos with you.

The event was held in the R.V. parking lot area. In the beautiful landscaped grounds was this public bbq. This was one heavy duty smoker. Thirty six teams were spread out over these spacious grounds. There was a beer tent that was cooled by portable misters. It was a challenge to sit in this balmy sauna of liquid libations.

A chili and salsa competition was held. I found a habanero salsa that made this chilehead sweat. Was it the habaneros or the weather? Ms. Goofy put on her new certified chili judge badge and braved the competitors offerings. I was too busy trying to stay hydrated this afternoon.

It was a great day. Our weekend are booked up for the rest of the summer. What a great way to start the summer.

Big Dude, A very warm day. This is one fun event.

Zoomie, We actually do not have an event the 4th of July weekend. I can guarantee we will be barbequing though.
