Sunday's edition of the Washington Post has an article about the Jack Daniel's bbq cook-off featuring Myron Mixon of Jack's Old South.
It's a longish article written by Steve Hendrix, but very entertaining. Whether you're a seasoned competitor or new to the sport, I think the article presents bbq as a serious sport.
I've never eaten any of Myron's bbq at his restaurants, but I've cooked against him Florida Barbeque Association competitions in Sebring and Minneola, FL among others and at the Lakeland Pig Fest and admire his ability to win bbq contests. He's got a definite knack for what bbq judges are looking for.
Check out the article and let me know what you think.
