What an incredible result at the Safeway National Capital BBQ Battle this weekend in Washington DC. Our friends Pork Barrel BBQ took the Perdue Chicken Championship, the Kingsford Points Chase, and the Grand Championship. I hope I didn’t miss anything! Degüello BBQ didn’t compete in DC this year for cost and scheduling considerations, the guys were kind enough to let me hang out at their site and it was really neat to see the weekend unfold.
As hard as we’ve worked to make it to the top of the mountain, I know that Heath and Brett have worked just as hard and it has really paid off. And of all places to get their first of what will surely be many Grand Championships, this was undoubtedly the best.
Although our own quest continues, I can truly say that this felt just as good as if we’d taken it all ourselves. Oh and about the Jack, I’ll do my best to get the time off to be your dishwasher. For now, that’s my ticket!
