If you are a vegetarian or a vegetore this is not the blog post for you because it is about, and for, the other team; the Carnivores.*
We will be posting about the 2nd Annual Arizona BBQ Festival where over 20 teams stoked their coals and smoked brisket, chicken, pork, tri-tip,and you name it, for 12-18 hours with delicious results. We were lucky enough, in the Tom Sawyer sense of the word lucky, to be invited by Susie Timm of Girl Meats Fork to help her, and her teammates at Loot n Booty (second in Brisket last year), man their booth.
We got video of it too.
It was a lot of fun to watch the competition from “floor seats” behind the tent flap and sort of participate. The only drawback was that at times it felt like being thirsty on the ocean, lots of water, but none to drink, as we served, but did not eat the sumptious BBQ. It was for charity and friendship so we endured.
Feast your eyes on the smokers, the contestants and the product below.

* We joked about the Pulled Squash Competition for next year, but I don’t think there will be many takers at the KC BBQ Society.
