A little back yard competition over 10 years ago has evolved into an event. Thirteen teams armed with seasoning, pork, ribs, chicken and imagination competed for ribbons and bragging rights that will last for through the next year.
There is no publicity, yet for the 10th year crowds knew to find their way to Peterson Park in Wolcott CT on the 3rd Saturday of September and wander up the tents picking at the offerings of the contestants.
Pork and chicken was being deep fried, marinated in secret sauces, smoked, grilled then cut up into pieces for all to eat.
While the sampling was being offered, the main dishes were being prepared to be formally presented to the judges.
Specially seasoned chicken being cut for presentation and placed out for tasting by attendees.
Through the day this was a repetitive scene.
While walking down the rows, you could be offered, pulled pork, pork laced macaroni and cheese; deep fried chicken tenders; deep fried Oreos; boneless ribs; corn chowder, deep fried corn on the cob and it kept going.
The proceeds from this event were being donated to needy families in Wolcott CT, in exchange for permitted the use of the field.
It was a full afternoon and needless to say, there was little desire for dinner at the end of the day.
