BBQ competitions are a lot of fun and a chance to hang out with some great friends. We just returned from Pickin in the Panhandle the West Virginia State Championship. It was a really great event set in a beautiful spot in the mountains of West Virginia at the Lazy A Campground. There were 53 teams competing, including some of the best teams like Tuffy Stone’s Cool Smoke, Mike Richter’s Chix, Swine and Bovine, 3 Eyz BBQ, DC Firefighters, Dj Richards of Pig N’ Paradise (coolest tiki smoker you’ve ever seen), Dizzy Pig, and too many more to name! Pork Barrel BBQ had a great event, finishing 4th Place Chicken Category, 5th Place Pork Category, 10th Place Brisket Category, and 33rd Place Rib Category – winning 5th Place Overall! We wanted to give a huge thanks to our meat sponsor’s Bill, Brian and Aaron Fuchs from Wagshals for providing us such amazing product!
