A brand new KCBS contest has emerged this year on the bbq circuit. It is titled the Throwdown in The Vineyards and is held at the Ironstone Vineyards in Murphy's California. It was a beautiful day for a bbq contest. The weather was is the high 70's to make a perfect setting for a four meat contest consisting of chicken, ribs, pork and my favorite brisket. The Ironstone winery is a beautiful venue and had something for everyone today.
The local football team had parking lot duties to make sure festival attendees did not deposited their vehicles in the beautiful vineyards. Twenty professional teams showed up for battle today. Several teams also vended bbq to feed the hungry participants. A cornhole tournament was held to attract even more bbq hungry players.
Ironstone winery was the perfect host for today's event. The winery had tastings and pouredglassed of their award winning wines. The grounds were beautiful with a small lake. The competitors were spread out with plenty of room.
Congratulations to the Team Mudville bbq for winning the Grand Championship today. This was another beautiful weekend for bbq I had to finish the day with a hand dipped with chocolate and almond ice cream bar. We cannot wait till next weekend when we can do it all over again.
