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.
