I went. It was pretty fun. There was a decent turnout as far as spectators goes. I ended up having to leave early because my babysitter baled on me. I ate so much pulled pork and ribs judging the people's choice group that I felt like throwing up! I met Lee Ann Whippen. She was there for her restaurant, Chicago Q and they were competing in the people's choice. Her Q was good but definitely not the best!
I FINALLY ESCAPED THE PIT THAT IS ILLINOIS!!!!
