|Boats, Bands & BBQ - Pueblo, CO - June 11|
We had beautiful weather this year for the Boats, Bands & BBQ competition in Pueblo, CO. It was in the low 80s during the day and in the 50s at night. This was our 3rd year competing at one of our favorite contests. The setting is beautiful, on the revitalized Riverwalk along the Arkansas River in downtown Pueblo. The public really turns out for this event to enjoy the food, entertainment and Colorado sunshine.
We finished 16th in chicken, 7th in ribs, 2nd in pork, 19th in brisket and 6th overall out of 47 teams competing this year. Our 6th overall was the same as our finish last year. Congratulations go out to 4 Legs Up for Reserve Champion and Colorado's own Burnin' Bob's Butts and Bones for taking Grand Champion. The tradition in Pueblo is for the Grand Champion to take a swim in the Arkansas River and this year was no exception as Bob took the plunge.
