Tryon, North Carolina – June 2006
Well, we finally did it and made it down to one of the oldest contests out there. The Blue Ridge BBQ Festival. “Tryon” as it’s called by fellow Qers. Gorgeous scenery. Lots of golf carts. Loads and loads of great BBQ teams. The layout and “feel” of the contest reminded us of The Jack, and our results did too! We’ve not done well at the Jack, and we sure had our hands full down here. We were lucky to even be in the top half here, but we had a fantastic time. And make that 3 out of 4 times we have had uncomfortable weather. It sure didn’t rain, but dang was it hot. Congrats to Pit Dog BBQ and Charles and B.S. Pitmeisters on there Grand and Reserve Grand awards, and to our new friends Firehouse BBQ for a strong 3rd overall finish.
