Newport Pig Pickin’ Contest This Weekend!

I almost forgot to post this announcement, so sorry for the late notice.  Barbecue festival season kicks off in NC today in Newport, aka “The Town with Old Fashioned Courtesy.”  See the event website and this press release for details on the event, which takes place today and tomorrow.  The barbecue competition is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society and claims to be “USA’s Largest Whole Hog B-B-Q Pig Cookin,” whatever that means.  I can’t attend but would love a report so drop me a line and some photos if you make it to Newport.
