It was a beautiful fall weekend in
Florence, CO for the first annual Kick in the Butt BBQ competition. You
never really know what to expect when attending a first year contest,
but this event couldn't have run more smoothly. Cindy Cox and her team
did an excellent job putting the event together. It ran more smoothly
than many events we have been to that have been around for years. The
musical entertainment lineup was also excellent providing a great
musical background for the weekend.
27 teams showed up to prove that
their barbecue is the best in the west. It was a good showing for a
first year event, especially since Jack Daniel's was the following
weekend and several of the teams in Florence were making the trip. The
Smoke Ring placed 4th in Beef Brisket and came in 11th overall.
Burnin' Bob's Butts n Bones took top honors as Grand Champion. Parrothead Smokers took Reserve.
