Default Music City BBQ Festival

Just wondering if any of ya'll know anything about the 'Q festival this weekend in Nashville.

I know there's a contest, and the public is invited to sample from and meet the competitors after the contest. Also, Lee Roy Parnell is opening for Delbert McClinton, so there's gonna be some of that good ole homemade stew of countryfied soulful blues.

Me and the Mrs. is gonna be taking a little time on the town, staying in a condo over there somewhere, and I've got a gig Friday night, but after that we're open, so we'll definately check out the festival. If you're anywhere to being within a decent drive, I'd come on down. Folks say it's a hoot and the weather's gonna be great! I've never been able to go, so this year'll be my first.

Lived here for about 15 yrs now, and both my wife and I grew up on the Mississippi gulf coast.

We just had the Wilson County fair, the state's most awarding winning fair, and I'd give it an award if they'd move it to October like the ones in MS. It was HOT last week! Thankfully, the weather is supposed to be fantastic this weekend for the BBQ festival.

Oh yeah, there's still some whittlin' goin' on, but the place has grown at an ungodly rate. You wouldn't believe the traffic, and Mt. Juliet is even worse. I believe they were listed as the fastest growing city in the country, maybe a yr or two ago. Nashville is steadily encroaching east.

I'll be there with my feed bag on. I didn't know there was a back yard division. Maybe next year.

Anyone compete in this contest before? I'm starting to sign up for some contests down South for late summer and it seems like a good one.

Talk about an old thread. I competed in this one two years ago as you can tell by my posts:) I haven't returned since and have no plans to ever attend this one again. Let's say I did not have a good experience.

dmp

EDIT: If you're looking for something in this part of the country in that time frame, I would recommend The Cookeville Cooke Off. It was Tony Stone's competition and is run very, very well. We'll be back.

EDIT #2: For Clint, last year BBQ TV was in Cookeville last year. That might sway your vote:)

Thanks! I'm trying to find whatever decent KCBS contests I can for after the move to Memphis.
