It was a hot fun time to be had at the Ceres Bands Brews & BBQ Throwdown this weekend. Hot with temperatures in the 90's and sizzling with great championship BBQ. Ceres is a small town in the Stanislaus County. Ceres is named after the Roman goddess of agriculture. Today we celebrate BBQ with twenty one professional teams and eleven backyard teams battling for trophies and cash prizes. We were there with our official judges badges to sample and score fantastic barbeque.
The public was treated to bands, adult beverages and great food. They were able to purchase sampling tickets to partake in the championship bbq. Misting tents were provided to take a quick break from the heat. Fun was had by all.
Congratulations to Big Poppa Smokers for winning the Grand Championship in the professional division. Smokey Boys BBQ won first in Chicken and Smoky River Boys won first in Ribs for the backyard division. Thankyou to the Chamber of Commerce who did a top notch job to provide such a wonderful event.
