The second annual BBQâ€™n at the Autry Barbecue Championship and Festival is right around the corner, April 14 2007. It will be held at the Autry National Center in Griffith Park (4700 Western Heritage Way).It is a very special competition to the Four-Q BBQ Team and myself because it was our inauguration into the world of BBQ competition. There were a couple of local BBQ events that were canceled last year and itâ€™s nice to see that this one is coming back.
There will be cooking demonstrations, food booths, entertainment, arts and crafts (for the kids), and a whole bunch of other stuff. There is one difference from last year aside from our team having a year of experience under our belts; they are charging an admission fee ($9 adults, $7 students and senior 62+, $3 children 3-12, free for children under 2, and free parking). If you are planning on attending, come early to see the competitors get their entries readyâ€¦ itâ€™s just like on TV. I will update this post if more information becomes available.
