Covington, VA – June 29, 2013
Even though there was a closer contest the same weekend in Winchester, VA, Dizzy Pig decided to venture back out to the beautiful Allegheny Mountains in Covington, VA. Memories of last year’s storm (the one that knocked out much of the Mid Atlantic region and taught many people the meaning of “Derecho”) were still clear in our brains as we pulled in this year. Instead of 105 degree temperatures, we were greeted with comfortable air and temps in the low 80s!! Set up right in front of the old Covington Bank, and adjacent to the jail, Dizzy Pig cooked up all four categories without a hitch. It wasn’t our most exciting food ever, but we managed to squeak out two calls….this week in Pork and Brisket. HOORAY for a rare, but well deserved call in Pork!! Congratulations to Redneck Scientific on Grand, and Chix, Swine and Bovine and Pickin’ Porkers on damn near tying for 2nd overall.
