Salisbury, Maryland – April 2005
The Dizzy Pig Team made the trek out to the Eastern shore of Maryland for the Second Annual Pork in the Park BBQ Competition in Salisbury Maryland for their first competition of the year. The contest was very well run, the local people extremely friendly, and the weather (though far from perfect) was much better than forecasted! The team had high hopes of getting some good practice in to start off the year, but had no idea what was in store. Just a few days before the contest, the organizers finally received their Governors proclamation to designate Pork in the Park as a State Championship. And the Dizzy Pig team’s two first place trophies, a ninth in pork, and an 18th in brisket were just enough to squeak out the 629.714 points needed to secure their second-ever Grand Championship! Now it looks like a Royal invitation is on the way, and once again we are honored to be in the hunt for a draw to the Jack Daniels World Championships.
