Holy Smoke BBQ Showdown - Cañon City, CO - June 4 Print

4 Legs Up Grand Champion

This was our first year attending the Holy Smoke BBQ Showdon in Cañon City, CO but I don't think it will be our last. Held at the Holy Cross Abbey and winery, this has to be one of the most cooker friendly events in the country. Each team is assigned a personal "monk" who makes sure that you have everything you need. The site is on grass in the center of an athletic track field which is a welcome relief from the usual asphalt parking lot or street. The competition was fierce with a lot of good teams participating.

We finished 4th in chicken, 14th in ribs, 12th in pork, 7th in brisket and 5th overall out of 28 teams. Congratulations to Johnny & Trish Trigg of Smokin' Triggers for winning Reserve Champion and Kelly Wertz & 4 Legs Up for his 3rd weekend in a row to take Grand Champion.
