The Gettysburg BBQ Skirmish, Gettysburg, PA - July 13-14, 2012


The battle lines were drawn. The soldiers were ready to fire... their smokers, that is. The first annual Gettysburg Barbecue Cook Off took place this past weekend in Gettysburg, PA.

The Judges' Tent
The weather was just about perfect. There was a little bit of rain early on, but things cleared up early morning and the temperature was mild, especially in the shade.






I was a table captain. My table also had two Master Certified Barbecue Judges. It was a lot of fun to discuss barbecue with those two.







I also had at my table a certified judge that was judging his first competition. We all gave him some pointers and he did a great job.







For the third straight competition, 3EYZ was again grand champion! Way to go Dan Hixon and team! Indeed!












My wife and I also took some time after the competition to tour the Gettysburg battlefields. Wow, what a great day!
