Tomorrow Chris and I will be hitting the road for Fort Worth, TX to compete in a unique BBQ contest being held at the Texas Motor Speedway.
This weekend the first contest in the Prilosec OTC BBQ Shootout Series will take place during race weekend in Texas. Saturday the speedway will play host to the O'Reilly 300 Nationwide Series race and on Sunday, the Sprint Cup Samsung 500.
We'll cook in a small, invitation only event that will feature just a dozen or so teams. Our slot in the contest actually comes courtesy of Rod Gray's Pellet Envy team. Rod will be schooling future BBQ champions in his "Old School vs. High Tech" competion BBQ course this weekend in Shannon, IL, so he offered his spot in this event to us. We'll cook under the Pellet Envy banner for this event and Rod will continue to compete in the remaining series stops through out the rest of the summer.
We are really looking forward to competing in this event. I will try to make some updates as the weekend progresses (if I can find a wi-fi connection at the track). In the mean time, here is the website for the series: http://www.bbqshootoutseries.com/
Note: rumor has it that the awards for the contest will be featured on the Speed channel's pre-race show, Sunday morning at 10:30.
