Kansas City, MO – October 2008
The Royal Invitational is simply the most powerful lineup of BBQ teams in the country. 106 teams, all of which have won at least one state championship and many that have won more than 5. The coolest thing about our 5th Royal Invitational was the fact that we know a lot more teams now. So, like most other contests we do, the Royal is very much a reunion of good friends. Our team was clicking all weekend, and we turned in some really solid entries. The judges gave out some nice scores, and Dizzy Pig ended up with their first top ten overall finish at the Invitational. The team was excited with a 7th overall call and a 2nd place pork ribbon. Twas a big day for Dizzy. Congrats to Joey Mac’s Smoke Stack on an incredible victory, and to all those who walked.
