Happy Post-4th Weekend!
I hope everyone had a safe, relaxing and happy holiday! Besides trying to stay cool and dodging the rain I somehow managed not to cook for the holiday. As much as I did want to sit around the smoker all day I’ll never complain when someone offers to host me and have homemade kielbasa on the grill.
BBQ TEAMS NEEDED!
Are you a seasoned vet or backyard hero? The 4th annual Grill Your Ace Off is looking for pro and backyard barbecue teams to compete the last weekend of August! This was one of the first events Teaspoon and I attended last summer and we had a blast (check out the vid here). If you would like more information email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll connect you with the organizers.
Franklin Blues & Barbecue Festival
Spent Father’s Day at the Franklin Blues & Barbecue Festival. Absolutely beautiful day to listen to sweet music and eat good BBQ. 100% FREE fest also which they told me is the only free fest outside of Chicago! You can check out the excitement on Yinz Love BBQ Facebook or the Instagram story. I need to bring a hungry crew to more of these events to have a family-style feast or hope to find a “sampler” ticket so I can try everyone out.
Pork & Beans
If you’re following Yinz Love BBQ on Instagram you’ll see that I finally made it down to Pork & Beans on Thursday night. Did it live up to the hype you’ve read about? Check out the IG feed for a sneak preview and full review coming next week you don’t wanna miss.
Keep up with current BBQ festivals/competitions and plan ahead with the Western PA BBQ Events Page! This year I have added a Google Calendar for you to subscribe to.
