A BBQ competition?! If it isn’t something that’s come up on your radar, you’d be forgiven for assuming that it must be a bit of a laugh, a Sunday football type of Masterchef.
Although in the average build up to a comp, there is certainly a health dose of beer, revelry and silliness, don’t be fooled. No matter how chilled you are and how much of a great community you may be competing within (which it really, really is), if you are waking up in the non-existent twilight hours to check the temperature of your smoker and your meat, meat that you are cooking low and slow for up to 20hours, you’ve gotta bet that there’s a serious competition to be won.
So what’s involved in a Bbq competition?
