Wow….and I mean WOW! What can I say?
For those that missed yesterday’s 1st annual Backyard BBQ Cook-Off, you missed a FANTASTIC time. Held on the beautiful grounds of Scheuermann Vineyard + Winery, people from all over came to sample delicious barbecued ribs, cold wine and beer, explore and chat with unique local artisans and listen to some very lively performances from local musicians.
The brainchild of Neil & Martha Kudrinko, the Backyard BBQ Cook-Off was a chance to bring together six willing competitors to challenge each other in barbecue areas of expertise such as best ribs, chicken and sauces. It was also an opportunity to bring the community together to celebrate all that is great in Westport in the summertime. Even though the temperature reached in excess of 40 degrees with the humidity, everywhere I looked there were people smiling, laughing and having a great time. Clearly the heat wasn’t going to damper anyones spirit.
A big congratulations to Scott & Luke, as well as the Kudrinko teams for winning the awards (see photos below of the teams holding their trophies). Also a very heartfelt thank you to all that were involved in making the BBQ a huge success. Looking forward to next years event already!
