Hello, a quick word to let you know results of the BBQ sauce contest and links to the sites when we get them
Last October, we were in a MAN UP BBQ sauce contest called Gettin’ Sauced out of Austin Texas. 3 of our 6 submissions placed, 2 of them in the first place in their categories. http://manuptexasbbq.blogspot.com/2016/10/gettin-sauced-bottled-contest-winners.html Here is the link to their site. While this one did not earn a ribbon or cash award, it was great to know that Texas likes our sauces.
Next Up is the American Royal BBQ Sauce Contest The judging was May 7th and the results should be posted my May 12th. http://www.americanroyal.com/bbq/may-events/sauce-contest/ This one comes with ribbons, cash prize and if by chance one of our sauces are named best on the planet, we may get a trip to their Labor Day event in Kansas City Mo.
