HavaBBQ 2011 Results!

  The HavaBBQ weekend in Lake Havasu was quite different from the weekends I remember as a youth growing up in that small southwestern town. The normal temps of mid seventies was replaced by 40s and 50s! The bright sun which shines so clearly most of the time was hidden behind rolling clouds which were letting loose with some rather chilly rain.
  Of course this did not dampen the spirits of the fine folks cooking chili & running their BBQs. These are a hearty group of people who love to fix up fine grub, no matter what the weather throws at them. For me it was not too bad either, back home in New York it was snowing so I was having a great weekend.
  Friday night for the chili competition the crowd was a bit thin, but the chili being served up was top notch and very tasty.
  Saturday for the BBQ competition the skies were even darker than the day before but in true Havasu spirit the crowd was quite large and everyone was bundled against the cold breezes. The wafting aroma of smoked meats was fantastic, promising good eats to all in attendance. Just as the folks running the BBQs were gearing up to serve up samples of brisket, chicken, ribs and pulled pork, the skies opened up and a cold rain started to fall. This did cause an exodus of some of the less prepared, but also did leave for me and all who braved the short lived onslaught more than our share of Great Q!
  All in all this is a very well run event and a well attended one. I will certainly be back next year, who knows, Tango Spice may even do a little cooking!
  Here are the top three finishers in this event.
