It was a beautiful day for a Beerfest & BBQ Championship in Lodi California. Lodi is known for stoplights and wine but today we were here to judge and cook some bbq. Ms.Goofy actually joined a cooking team to help out her sister on her quest to become a Master Judge. One must cook with a competition bbq team to qualify for the Master Judge title. Peggy and her sister cooked with "RBQ Barbecue" Team run by Rick Brandini.
The bbq competition was held outside of the actual beerfest but several teams vended so festival attendees could sample and purchase great bbq. The judges were sequestered in an air conditioned building which is always nice for our pampered judges lot. It was a beautiful day with the thermometer hovering in the high 70s. This is a popular event and usually sells out.
