Photos from the American Royal 32nd Annual BBQ Invitational and Open Competition as I experienced it.
Note, this was a truly great experience which I wish I had taken more photos. There were many folks I met from my FB friends, and other internet forum sites who I can say are truly amazing people.
This competiton included 140 teams representing the best of the best in an invitational competiton and a total of 480 plus teams in the open competiton. I judged both competitions and must say I tasted some Real Good Meat and some very creative desserts, vegetables, beans and potato entrees.
