1st Place in Hot Wings 2008.
Its the Heath Dept that are sticklers. Memphis Health Department has some wacky rules. Teams would have to buy permits, have 3 compartment sinks with hot water, have dedicated kicthens and serving areas…the list goes on and on. The system has worked for 36 years, it will probably never change as it is a contest and not a BBQ Festival. It has always been set up more for the teams and not for the public, though I can tell you a hundred ways to get yourself into a bbq booth.
Moved from Memphis to Buffalo 2 years ago, and yes, I have grabbed some items from them, great people and great products! Funny you should mention it, a bunch of us foodies here in Buffalo were gathered around a couple pigheads today (one roasted the other smoked) eating and looking at that catalog…
