June 26, 2015 | Dave and I have been Ambassadors for a few BBQ contests in our time, and we decided this year to return to a closer-contest than the one downtown. Our friends would be there, AND the teams actually need some assistance (which is great when you are donating your time)! The weather was perfect, and our great friends were there this year so we had a lot of fun. We had a whole new group of teams, but I think we made a great connection with several of them. Here’s hoping it works out again next year! Oh, and Rod was so completely awesome, and saved us a bag of his GRAND CHAMPION burnt ends. E gave them a shot, and loved them. They are seriously one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life!
