2012 Kentucky State BBQ Festival 


My good friends in Danville, KY are hosting the 2nd Annual Kentucky State BBQ Festival in a couple of weeks.  Last year, we pitched in helped Pegleg Porkers serve their Memphis style pork shoulder sandwiches to an incredible turnout. 

The BBQ at this event is top shelf from some of the most notable pitmasters in the business.  You can sample the work of Carey Bringle & the Pegleg Porkers,  Moe Cason & Ponderosa BBQ, Melissa Cookson & Yazoo Delta Q, Shelly Hunt & Desperado BBQ, and Craig Kimmel with Firehouse BBQ.  It's definitely worth the trip to taste competition quality BBQ.

While we won't be able to make it this year, you should plan to atttend.  It's a great time.  

Here is the schedule of events for this year's event.
