I gotta tell you, load-out from Southaven Springfest was a long, tedious process, because we had some extra weight to carry out. That weight came in the form of a COOKING TROPHY for third place in seafood! We also got 12th in shoulder. No trophy for that, but it is said to be a stronger finish than our 9th in Atoka, based on the number of teams. Great job Frank. Erik, Clay, John D, and anyone else who helped.
We now have our sights set on the main event, BBQ Fest. I haven’t been told to take the PayPal widget off the website yet, so I assume we are still taking members if you know anyone who would like to join.
As soon as I get a picture of the trophy I will add it to this post. What a fantastic weekend!
Edit: And here is that trophy:
We are placing the team T-shirt order at the end of the day Friday, April 22. If you are a team member or plan to be a team member, please go here and give us your T-shirt size.
We are ordering extras but cannot guarantee a shirt in your size if you order after April 22.
Time to fire up the smoker once again! This weekend The Moody Ques will be in the BBQ competition at Southaven Springfest. The BBQ portion of this festival is Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23. It’s free to get in before noon both Friday and Saturday, and $10 after that. Kids 10 and under are free.
Directions can be found here. Take Snowden Lane south from Goodman Road. Snowden Lane is a block east of Getwell.
There will be live music both Friday and Saturday, with 38 Special performing Friday night, and Loverboy on Saturday.
The meat will be coming off the grill Saturday for judging, making Saturday afternoon a great time to come down and see how Frank and Erik are doing on their competition shoulder. It just gets better every time. After a ninth place in Atoka, we are gunning for an even higher finish in Southaven, our last regional competition before BBQ Fest. We hope to see you this weekend!
