For this year’s BBQ Cook Off, I was invited into 3 tents. This post is about 2 of those tents. The Lonestar Cowboy Cookers tent is covered in another post.
As you can see from this sign, there are a lot of cooking teams.
The area for all of these tents is very large. The maps are high quality and easy to read.
One tent had an alligator on display.
Here is the sign for one of the tents I was in.
As I was walking around, I came across these flags.
As a Pirate, I wanted to get their pics.
A pic of the Scoundrels Cooking Team.
With their chicken.
They had some cool things in their tent.
They had a self service food line.
Little touches added to the theme.
One eye, one hand, one leg… is that a really good Pirate or a really bad one?
The Pirate pennant rope was a good touch.
I didn’t stay until the food was served or the band started playing, but I’m sure they had a great time the rest of the night.
The Porta-Potties looked great.
A fun tent to be in.
Don’t ask this man about the Captain Morgan. He won’t tell you, lol.
The bad weather was not good for an outdoor concert.
The bands still played and even drew a crowd.
People kept coming in all hours of the day and night.
As I was walking around, I came across the Desperados’ tent.
It was easy to recognize another Pirate hang out.
They were cooking some sausage.
This gentleman was making some burgers.
I met Guy and Shelly and everyone was happy to pose for a pic.
This tent also had some great details.
I think they told me that they came in 2nd one year in the theme contest.
They had several decorative elements.
The dog is a nice touch.
This tent had a wooden facade which was nice on a cold, wet Winter day at the cook off. Being inside was nice.
A very nice sign.
As a former Ring Buoy Champion, and Pirate… I approve of this usage.
Very cool tapestry.
Always nice to show appreciation.
This would have been a fun Photo Op. Maybe next year.
The skeletons in the cage hung in the air is another great element.
Fun people in a fun tent.
Although I didn’t try the food, it all looked really good.
Gotta have beans with BBQ.
This booth was self service also. I would have loaded up on these.
Next year, my goal is to taste more of the food to be able to offer a review.
The brisket looked delicious.
The guests in this tent enjoyed a great meal, very cool, Pirate-themed ambiance and good company.
Next year, I hope to cover these 2 booths again. I intend to stay later in the evening and capture what happens after dark.
Once again, one of my favorite pics was taken as I was leaving the event.
Fun girls. I used this image as the Feature Image for the BBQ Cook Off gallery.
