Annual BBQ Festival and Competition
October 2nd, 2010
My buddies Steve and Jeff took their Piglet Enemy BBQ team down to Laurens, SC to enter in the annual Squealin' on the Square BBQ Competition. Also joining them was my buddy Ron!

Even though it is only 35 minutes from my house, I have never been to Laurens, SC before. Joining me was my father-in-law Chris who found himself right at home in downtown Laurens.

There was a lot more than just BBQ going on at Squealing on the Square!
There was an Antique Car Show:
An Antique Tractor Show:
Some Live Entertainment:
The Antique Tractor Parade:
And the worlds largest Pinball Machine:
But now, lets return to the BBQ
There are (4) categories in the competition:
3. Pork Butt or Shoulder

Ribs contest submission
Jeff prepping the pulled pork butt
The Brisket contest submission
Chris and I filled our tummies sampling some of the leftovers. My favorites were the ribs and the pulled pork butt! Since I wanted to get home in time for the 3:30 VT Hokie game, we left before finding out the results.
It was a beautiful day! Chris really enjoyed himself and got some good ideas for the home-make smoker that he is working on. And the day got even better as my Hokies got the victory with a come from behind 41-30 win!
