It’s been about three years since our last BBQ competition, but this weekend Four Q rides again at the Dana Point State BBQ Competition. We are only two now, Professor Salt and myself BBQ Junkie. Of the original four who started our BBQ team in 2005 Neil “Big Mista” has gone on too much success as a BBQ entrepreneur and Sylvie now competes on her own as Lady of Q. Big Mista occasionally enters competitions, but you are more likely to find him at a local farmer’s market and Lady of Q will be at the competition this weekend….
Once again Wildomar will host The Ultimate BBQ Showdown East vs. West II this Saturday March 19th. Four Q, me included, will be there as well as 55 other teams. It’s the first of many KCBS BBQ competitions in SoCal this year. I’ll take plenty of photos and let you know how we do. If you are in the neighborhood or at the competition stop by the Four Q BBQ team booth and say hello… or you can just follow my tweets.
If you have ever wondered what real BBQ tastes like and want to support a great cause while tasting some, come by the Orange County Fairgrounds this Saturday.

The 2nd Annual Que’n for Kids BBQ competition is happening this Saturday May 9 at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. This is a very fun event for both attendees and competitors… and you can feel good about it, as the proceeds go towards Kristie’s Foundation which benefits terminally ill children. There will be live music, kids entertainment along with an “awesome kid zone and car show.
Four-Q BBQ team (minus me) will be there representing as last year’s People’s Choice Champions. I have no doubt that they will make me proud once again. If you happen to go, give them a try and cast your vote accordingly. You may also want to say hi to any of the other 33 BBQ teams that will be there competing. If you go, please leave a comment and let me know how it went.
