Holy Smoke BBQLiberty, MO

BBQ Contest

Overall Reserve Grand Champions

Burnt Finger BBQ competed in the 6th annual Holy Smoke BBQ Contest hosted by the St. James Catholic Church in Liberty, MO.  It has been a number of years since we’ve been able to attend this contest, so it was nice to make a return visit.

Friday evening we hosted a pot-luck dinner for the teams attending the event.  In honor of the Olympics, we encouraged folks to pick a country to represent.  We went with Germany and contributed beer brat pigs in a blanket.  The buffet also saw representation from Mexico, China, Italy, and the good ole USA.  It was a fantastic evening that was capped off with ice cold Cabo Wabo margaritas for everyone!

Contest wise, we were very happy with our food this weekend, and the judges agreed.  We received calls in all 4 categories, including 1st place honors in ribs.  That all added up to overall Reserve Grand Champions of the event!
