Post Event/Smokin' Times Write-up

Every year SaveMart’s Blues, Brews, and BBQ in Modesto, CA is the equivalent to the home opener for Northern California competitive BBQ. This year was no different, with several new teams joining the many established names in our sport for this one of a kind event. For those that have never been to this event there are a number of different elements to keep attendees entertained throughout the day. Along side this State BBQ Championship there are featured Blues performers, refreshing brews, and a wonderful Fun Zone. And if that isn’t enough there is also the Modesto Relays - a full track meet with 66 years of history in Modesto, right alongside the BBQ row. All of this is coordinated by by SaveMart's Special Events Marketing guru, Don Bean.

SaveMart’s special events team led by Sharon Blakely always does a top notch job making sure the teams, judges and supporters are fully taken care of and that all the details that are required of these events go smoothly and on time! 38 teams assembled mostly from Northern California with some hailing from as far away as Arizona and Texas to compete in this 4^th year of this event. The teams had their work cut out for them when the wind picked up in the middle of the night and didn’t let up well past turn in time. Several teams suffered damaged equipment when the gusts really picked up. Others faced a near impossible task of maintaining cooker temperature as they had never attempted a rehearse cook in the wind, many others had to fight with their turn in boxes and had to do everything they could to keep from fumbling their entries. Teams Out of this World BBQ as well as The Pit Stop and QN4U served up BBQ for public consumption with proceeds benefiting the SaveMart Cares programs.

When it came time for the awards it was a nice surprise to see several rookie teams make the walk as well as a number of the established teams. Asleep at the Grill repeated their RGC and QN4U took GC.
