KCBS Competition Season in the Carolinas

The KCBS competition season in the Carolinas officially kicked off on April 20th in Kings Mountain, NC with the Kings Mountain Firehouse BBQ Cook-Off.  Nestled on the grounds of the walking track at the Kings Mountain Fire Museum approximately 35 minutes west of Charlotte, this event regularly draws some of the best teams in the region.  This year was no exception, as 2012 reigning KCBS Team of the Year 3 Eyz BBQ made the trip down from Maryland to compete for a portion of the $10,400 prize money along with 54 additional teams, including regional juggernauts such as Two Old Men and a Grill and Checkered Pig.

Grilled Tri-Tip Roast with Red Wine and Blues Hog Reduction

Sometimes the idea just hits you, and you can’t help but act on it!  I’ve been trying to expand my cooking repertoire beyond the basic grilling and backyard smoking.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that at all, but it’s nice to have some variety.  I picked out three ingredients from items that I had at home – Blues Hog Original BBQ sauce, a tri-tip roast, and a bottle of red wine.  Okay, I went and purchased the red wine because I didn’t want to use the better red wine that was at home… but it was the thought that counts!  For the tri-tip roast, I used Black Bart’s Brisket Rub from Tasty Licks BBQ Supply (read my review of the rub on BBQ Sauce Reviews).
