As the locomotives blew through our small town of Summit, MS, grills were creating a smoky haze along Railroad Ave.
Sixteen teams had been up most of the night socializing, marinating their meats with secret sauces, and preparing their grills to cook the one meat that would win them a number one in category, or all four meats to have a chance at the Grand Champion.
All that for a plaque, some cash, and most important, bragging rights.
Some of the fancy hardware to be found along the tracks.
While all those wonderful ribs, brisket, chicken, and pork butt was cooking away, there was a car show lined up along main street.
A lot of familiar names from the past. What guy didn’t want one of these back in the 60’s?
Or one like this later on in life?
Remember eating off something like this?
Back to the BBQ. The judging started at 11:30, and we finished around 2:30. After all the judging was completed and the results compiled, the Grand Prize winner were these guys from Georgia.
And remember all those fancy grills in the photos above? This is the winner of the pork category. First place bragging rights and a check; all done with a $40.00 water smoker from Walmart.
You just have to love it……
