Once again the Great American Barbecue was a great weekend to spend cooking outdoors. This year the organizers bumped the date up to be the week before the long Memorial Day holiday weekend. This gave the competition teams the chance to still compete in this great contest, and also be able to spend some valuable family time over the long weekend. Burnt Finger BBQ came out of the weekend with calls in 4 of 8 categories we entered, and two local Kansas City teams walked away with Grand Championships in each of KCBS contests.

Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend? Why not head down to Kansas City for one of the greatest barbecue competitions/festivals known to man. May 21st and 22nd will be host to the 6th annual Great American Barbecue Festival at the Wyandotte County Park at Beautiful Capital Federal Park (or Sandstone Amphitheater for those familiar with the KC area). There will be plenty of activities on site to enterain the family, including a carnival, a dedicated Kidz Zone, food/equipment vendors, live music, fireworks, and even a book signing by yours truly!!!
It’s taken a full week, but now that we’re fully recovered from The Great American Barbecue it’s time to get blogging again. The festival was a landmark weekend for us, as we announced the upcoming release of our fully cooked, pre-smoked, heat and eat Bacon Explosion. This means that the hungry vistors of our site will no longer need any type of barbecue expertise to enjoy the authentic smokey flavor that our recipe calls for. The entire weekend was deemed our official “product launch party”, and we treated festival goers to over 3,000 samples from our first production run.
On Memorial Day weekend, hundreds of the world’s top competition barbecue teams will converge on Sandstone Amphitheater outside of Kansas City for one of the largest barbecue celebrations the country has to offer, the Great American Barbecue Festival. With an expected crowd of 50,000 people, the organizers are estimating over 70,000 pounds meat and 60,000 gallons of beer will be consumed over the course of the three day weekend. To top things off, they’ve also invited the BBQ Addicts to give an official culinary demonstration on how make a perfect Bacon Explosion…plus we’ll be unveiling our latest project, and it has nothing to do with our upcoming book!
