This past Saturday, I was able to do two of my personal favorite things. I ate great BBQ and was able to help a very worthy cause. The Jefferson Unit of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Pines held their annual Kim Lake Memorial Cook-Off this past weekend (6/10 -6/11 2011). 29 teams competed in 4 categories: beans, brisket, ribs, and chicken. This event is recognized as a State Championship BBQ for the State of Texas and is sanctioned by the Lone Star Barbecue Society.
You should have smelled downtown Jefferson on Saturday. Mmmm…barbecue. The whole Historic Riverfront District smelled like smoked brisket. Tom was one of the judges for the ribs and told me that ALL of the ribs were amazing. He had a really tough job in deciding which ones he liked the best and with $3500 in prizes, you know this was some world class BBQ that he was tasting.
If you are interested in competing in next year’s event, call the Jefferson Unit at 903-935-2030
