It is hard to believe how quickly time flies when you’re having fun. 2011 marks the third season the Pork Barrel BBQ Competition BBQ Team will be competiting in Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS), Memphis in May (MIM) and Memphis Barbecue Network (MBN) sanctioned events on the national competition BBQ circuit. We’ll be cooking at some of the most prestigious contests in the country, hitting some first year contests and contests we’ve never cooked at and returning to the site of our first professional contest, the Safeway National Capital Barbecue Battle in 2011.
We are proud to announce that Wagshal’s will once again be the official meat sponsor of the Pork Barrel BBQ Competition BBQ Team in 2011!!! A big thanks to Bill, Aaron, and Brian for all their support and for providing the highest quality meats in the nation!! Whether you’re a competition BBQ team or a backyard grillmaster check out Wagshal’s for all your meat supplies and don’t forget to try their Iberico Pork (you won’t regret it)!!!!!
Here is the list of contests we plan to attend in 2011 (more may be added as the year goes on). If you are near any of these contests stop by and say hi!!! Hope to see you all along the BBQ Trail in 2011!!!!
