Lexington, NC was the site for the finale for BBQ Pitmasters Season 3. This episode brought the winners from the previous 5 episodes together in the self-proclaimed BBQ Capital of the US to determine who would be the winner of the $50,000 prize as well as a spot in the Kingsford Invitational.
This weekend was an off weekend for me, so I decided to go and check out the 2012 BBQ Capital Cook-Off in Lexington, NC. This contest is about an hour from where I live. This contest featured 50 teams from all over the country (and the world, but I’ll get to that later).
It all started in early 2010. A couple of friends and I heard of a charity BBQ cook-off going on in Charlotte, and we decided to enter. We entered 2 of the 4 categories and ended up taking 2nd place in both categories. The competition bug bit me.
Today I had the opportunity to meet up with some really great people today at Lexington BBQ #1 in Lexington, NC. I will talk about that in a different blog post.
