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!

The Kim Lake Memorial State Championship BBQ is held annually on the first weekend in June. We hope you will join us next year in Historic Jefferson Texas.

RMC

Really great environment! Very welcoming, very little drama and weekends are off the chain, with all the events, fundraisers, entertainment and extras that RMC does. I really enjoy, the fact that the club is non-smoking inside, but offers an outdoor smoking and party area with a full service bar. Yes even the patio accepts credit cards, for those of my friends who have asked. I would highly recommend that if you are 21 and over and want to have an awesome time... Go check them out. The staff and Owners are amazing!
