2017's event is now in the books!

Wow!  What a great Weekend!  Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful, and I cannot express how thankful I am for my Local and BBQ community!   Yesterday, Chad and I hosted a BBQ competition that raised money for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children.  This year’s donation will be going to the Springfield, MA hospital for the orthopedic division.  They are in dire need of wheelchairs for children and our donation will directly impact the lives of many children to become mobile.   It is with the team entries, donations, auction bids, that we are able to donate $6865.00.  Just amazing!

We had 16 teams this year that put out fantastic food (said the judges).  This year’s teams were, Smokin’ Hoggz, Smokin Aces, Hokie Pokie Q, Q-Shanty, Poor House BBQ, Paddy McQ’s, Burning Sensation, Cider Boys, Nuggets Nibblets, Baystate BBQ Company, Tubby’s BBQ, Hammah Down BBQ, Totally T-Bone, Pop’s Chow Haul, School of Hard Knox, and Smokin’ Good Times ME!  Thank you for enduring the cold breeze and cooking your hearts out!  I want to congratulate all the winners!
