    Ride Em Bronco!  BBQ and Bulls in Currituck a BLAST  

    Instead of a hurricane, 25 teams descended onto the Outer Banks for Currituck Heritage Bulls and BBQ Contest in Currituck, NC.

    The sites were fantastic, with water and power at every site, and the organizers took care of dinner on Friday and breakfast on Saturday morning.

    The competition was fierce as well, with Checkered Flag 500 taking Grand Champion, followed by Buttman and Rubbin finishing as Reserve Grand Champion.

    But the greatest winner of the day was MABBQA..  MABA gained George DiMartz from Twisted Pair out of Raleigh, NC as a member!  George is a fantastic human, who showed up at 9:30 on Friday night to be the 25th team.  George was rewarded with his first ever 1st place in a category in pork.

    George also gave us this fantastic video from later in the evening at the Rodeo.  (He may have been tricked by the MABBQA President.)
