A BBQ Christmas in June
I was told our category would start at 1 p.m. and to arrive at about ten till one. I got there at noon.
Remember Christmas time when you were a kid? Around September the JC Penney and Sears catalogs would arrive and you would make your Christmas list. The months of anticipation would build until Christmas morning. Then a mad dash is made to the Christmas tree, presents would be ripped open and then -- its all over. I had this same experience last weekend.
I was asked to be a judge at Jefferson's Kim Lake Memorial State Championship BBQ Cook Off. The Cook Off benefit's the local Boys and Girls Club and I was asked to judge the rib category. I love BBQ and I especially love ribs! For weeks I looked forward to this event. I was told our category would start at 1 p.m. and to arrive at about ten till one; I got there at noon.
Finally the chicken category finished up and we were placed at our tables. After a brief explanation from the Head Judge, here came the ribs. Box after box came flying by; smell it, take a bite, score it, clean the palate and here comes another. It was great fun but before I knew it we were finished, just like Christmas. So, not wanting the moment to end, I walked over to the next booth and bought a plate of BBQ!
