2011 American Royal The 2011 World Series of Barbecue Open Contest September 30th - October 2nd
Nine hundred and ninety-eight teams are registered
for this year's 2011 American Royal. Known as the Talledega of BBQ,
this year's Royal is bigger than ever. Mike, Shelton & Kurt are
representing BBQ Island at this bar-be-que bonanza. We've been invited
to cook with Chris Marks and the Three Little Pigs BBQ team.
This team has won 8 American Royal Grand Championships, we will be
cooking with royalty. To stick with the NASCAR analogy, we will be
running with Earnhart this weekend. But we're not there as spectators,
nope. Chris Marks has delegated the cooking responsibilities, and the
BBQ Island boys were dealt the brisket card. Gulp...You got that right,
it's the Big Boy meat at the Big Boy show. Chris insists that he teaches
brisket the same way he cooks it at the Royal. Well, that's good,
because it's the only way we know how to cook Brisket.
Stay tuned for updates to the BBQ Chronicles, as the weekend proceeds. And please, wish us luck!
