Blue Ridge Southern Barbecue Festival






What do you do on a 93 degree Saturday in Fletcher. We drive 50 miles to Tryon, North Carolina where it's 97 degrees, to the Barbecue Championship. Now these are some serious porkers here. They had Cajun music and enough swine to fill a freight car. The heat helped to maximize the beer sales, and for the teetotalers there was alcohol-free bingo. Bo wasn't allowed to go, which was good because he would have been paw-up in the heat. It was great barbecue, great music the usual craft fair, and yes Tom they did have face painting.

Looks like a lot of fun. My only question: did you get your BBQ with the routine tomato-based sauce, or the traditional North Carolina mustard-based sauce?

Dear Connoisseur: It was the tomato based sauce. Carol has a recipe for the mustard based sauce to make "pull-pork". I didn't see any entries from Orange County at the competition.
