BBQ contest at The Swedish Gymnastics Club
Posted by on August 3, 2013, 7:55 pm CST
When we got invited to a legit barbecue contest by our Chumpcar brother Andrew Johnson of The Holy Rollers we had to take up the challenge. We packed up the minivan and took The Carbeque along for a bit of show and tell. Everyone seemed to have their own technique; some were a bit unconventional to our more traditional regional styles (I guess we used up all our unconventional when we built a SAAB 900 that cooks BBQ). One competitor marinated his ribs in Dr. Pepper and did the majority of the cooking in the oven inside the club, another used a Hawaiian style pig roaster that put the charcoal on the top. Weird.
At some points we felt a little out of place bringing a SAAB to a party like this...
And then Simon of Team Failcar showed up, and there were two out of place SAABs!
Hours later...meat came off and it was time to eat!
Some judging happened, and we came in third place. Andrew won again with his butter/brown sugar/memphis sauce combo making him the man to beat next year. Everyone gained 15lbs. What a strange gymnastics club this is.
