BBQ-ing US style

The Australian Tongmaster Team, MLA, BBQ aficionados and Kevin

After the sun had long disappeared I pondered on how I ended up in a field in Lexington’s North Carolina passively smoking a beef brisket and drinking the local moonshine. RV’s with palatial proportions steamed into town for the BBQ-ing version of Woodstock at the Annual Capital BBQ Cook-off 28th-29th April 2012.  Heaving with 50 competing teams vying for the $15,900 prize money, many of the competitors were probably conceived at such an event, except for the Australian team. Next year’s event is sure to be as juicy as this beef brisket.

The juicy spoils of our team. Well done, guys!
