Scott watches alot of the Travel Channel. He loves it, and since he's been watching he has seen these B-B-Q Cook Off's that they have in different places and he loves B-B-Q, so he has always wanted to go to one. Well, lo and behold they had one in our town. It was a Kansas City Barbeque Society sanctioned event! I know your impressed. Well even more impressive is that this event just happened to be scheduled for Scott' s Birthday weekend. Happy Birthday Scott. AND when Chad was down. Yeah, Chad! So this is how it works...

First you come in...


Then you walk around for a while looking at all the cool stuff they have around. The big tricked out grills, the tractors, and the old fashioned stuff (not pictured)...


Then you get in line to come inside this...the "Lick Your Lips" Sampling Tent. This is where the magic happens...


This guy, and other guys, and some women, too. Dish up there best B-B-Q in little cups and set it out for you to sample...



Then you smell it, taste it, savor it, think about the texture, the smokiness, if it's rubbed, sauced, basted, if they used hickory chips, oak chips, charcoal, propane, and the like...

Then you say, "Chad, I don't know about this one," or...

"Umm...Chad, now that's some good B-B-Q"... Then you drop your five tickets into the jars of the 5 best B-B-Q's and your done...



And if little tasty cups of B-B-Q aren't enough for you, then you stop by this award winning booth for a whole sandwich. Which according to Scott and Chad was awful. Chad posed the theory that they stopped at the trophy shop and bought their own trophies...

And for desert there are funnel cakes and carmel apples and such, and you've had yourself one heck of a time, had a good lunch, and can strike one of your "Travel Channel To Do's" off your list.
P.S. We never did find out who won. For me it was "the first one", for Chad and Scott it was "that one in the middle."
