We are getting ready for Stagecoach! The Four Q BBQ Team is currently preparing for what will probably be the biggest BBQ contest in California this year. The Stagecoach Country Music Festival is hosting 3 (that's right THREE) BBQ contests in one weekend. $30,000 in cash and prizes is up for grabs and we want a chunk of it.
Friday afternoon will be a wide open contest where the cooks will be preparing chili, salsa, wings and any BBQ item we choose.
Saturday will be a KCBS sanctioned event and will be for the bulk of the prizes. Everyone will prepare chicken, ribs, pork butt or shoulder and beef brisket.
Sunday is also a KCBS contest and we will prepare the same meats.
The trick is that this will also be a people's choice event. We will be serving samples to the crowd during the contest. So in addition to preparing out turn ins, we also have to prepare mass quatities to serve to the public.
This will be a long hard weekend but I think it will be a lot of fun. If you are going out to the Music Festival, please be sure to drop in!
