Smokin' 4th BBQ Shootout - Durango, CO - July 4th Print

We had a wonderful 4th of July at the 5th annual Smokin' 4th BBQ Shootout in Durango, CO. 29 teams gathered on the historic downtown Main Avenue to shoot it out for the best barbecue. Main Avenue was closed to traffic for the event. There were two stages providing live music as the crowds danced in the street into the night. The event was capped off with a spectacular fireworks display launched form the top of one of the mountains overlooking the town.

The Smoke Ring team took First Place in beans and ribs. Rhythm n Que from Albuquerque, NM was the Grand Champion and Burnin' Bob's Butts and Bones took Reserve.

We would like to thank Mark Simon and the Durango Kiwanis Club for organizing a great event and KCBS reps Merl and Carol for doing another fine job repping the contest.
