This holiday weekend we judged two bbq contests at Roaring Camp in Felton California. Saturday was a four meat KCBS sanctioned contest. Sunday was a two meat contest of ribs & chicken. Roaring Camp is a wonderful venue. It is a family fun narrow gauge railroad with a beautiful redwood forest setting. It is located adjacent to Henry Cowell State Park which showcases a growth of old growth coast Redwoods. All I can say; it is breathtaking
It is always great to connect with our bbq family. It seems that KCBS sanctioned contests have not rebounded with vigor since the pandemic. It was fantastic to be in our judges posture to sample & score chicken, ribs, pork and brisket on Saturday. It is just like riding a bike. We had some fantastic bbq.
We returned Sunday for round two. The prize money was big and the competition was fierce. A few of the pro teams stayed the extra day and the entries reflected their expertise. What a great way to spend the weekend.
