What? Another Nice Weather Event in Kings Mountain? YES PLEASE!
Maybe there is a correlation between having good weather in Kings Mountain for the annual Firehouse BBQ Cookoff and Smoke This having success. For years, one thing was a guaranteed to happen during the weekend of the Firehouse Cookoff, rain. Torrential, blowing, driving rain. Rain in such quantities that firetrucks would get stuck while pulling campers and trailers out. Rainstorms that required tow trucks to pull out stuck firetrucks who were hooked to stranded rvs and custom built bbq trailers. Serious rain events. It never failed. However, last year was different. The weather was pristine, chamber of commerce weather, as folks commonly say. The result? A second place finish by Smoke This in an event that had been hard on the team in the past. This past weekend was another post card weather weekend. Maybe that weather is to thank for a good result. Smoke This was able to capture 3rd overall behind the strength of a 4th place chicken, 7th place pork and 1st place brisket! Congrats to The Smokehouse Mafia on the Grand Championship and Midnight Burn on your Reserve Grand.
The next event for Smoke This will be on May 4-5 in Kannapolis, NC for the Jiggy with the Piggy event. The guys will be returning after having to miss last year due to a scheduling conflict. This will kick off a busy month of May that will include two trips to Georgia sandwiched around a private event in Concord, NC
