Downtown Jonesboro BBQ Festival

After a short one week break for my son’s second birthday, we’re off to cook at another KCBS contest.

Michael's 2nd Birthday

This time we’re traveling to Jonesboro, Arkansas to cook in the Downtown Jonesboro Bbq Festival.

This was a last minute decision for us. We were wanted to cook in Corinth MS this weekend, but unfortunately the contest filled up before we could get our entry turned in.

I learned a lesson when it comes to entering a KCBS contest…Always send in the entry application as soon as possible. I’m used to the MBN contest where they take teams right up until the day of the contest in most cases. We were lucky to get in the Jonesboro contest. It was full at 60 teams when I called, but they were kind enough to accept our application, and told us to come on out, they’re glad to have us.

I’m just happy we’re getting to cook.

At this point it’s pretty routine, I’m cooking almost every weekend back-to-back so I just move the cooking totes from the garage to the truck and then grab my overnight bag. I don’t even have to unpack!
