Frederick, MD – June 15, 2013
Chris Carter puts on a GREAT contest up in Frederick! The Swinetastic BBQ event is held at the Great Frederick Fairgrounds in Frederick, Maryland. A few thousand people attend this contest, and there is a ton of stuff for the public to do while visiting. After some rain early Thursday, the weekend was absolutely stunning from a weather perspective! Cool dry air and comfortable days and nights made for an awesome cooking experience. Dizzy Pig was our basic core team with Brian, Nicole and Chris, but with the addition of a new energetic fellow named Neil. This guy rolled up his sleeves and helped out in so many ways. When all was said and done, Dizzy Pig ended up a respectable 12th overall of 63 teams including exciting calls to the stage in both Ribs and Brisket!!! What happened on Chicken?? No idea. Congratulations to Mike Faye and Aporkalypse Now on taking home the Grand Championship, and to Checkered Flag 500 on Reserve.
