That means the new BBQ season is right around the corner and I am ready to get back on the road. Looks like the first contest will be in Blackshear Ga which is about two hours south of us here in Macon.The Pierce County Pig Pickin' BBQ Festival,Feb 10-11th 2012 loks like its going to be a blast. It has the biggest payout for Grand in GBA History-Yeah I am looking at the application-. they are having Friday night ancillary events of Wild Game,Chicken and Peoples choice- we will probably do chicken and not the other two and we will not be vending this event. We are real excited about seeing all the cook teams it seems like it has been a long time since Gordon ( our last cook).
