Our 2nd Backyard BBQ Competition was a success! Thank you to everyone who came out to "meat us" at our place for a day celebrating our local meat producers, friendly competition, and an afternoon of community. Check back in early 2022 for details on our 3rd annual event!
A special thank you to our sponsors below for their support of this event. It would not have been possible without you!

We kept it simple in 2021: ribs reigned supreme (pork or beef, chef's choice). While it was a difficult decision for our judges, ultimately 3 winners took home BBQ bragging rights for a year:
- First Place ($500): Hooch BBQ
- Second Place ($300): Smoke Showing
- Third Place ($200): Smoke Eaters BBQ
