I featured Martin's BBQ in Nolensville, TN a couple of weeks ago in an article about starting a bbq restaurant from the ground up. Today, Martin's BBQ has gained even more notoriety via an article in Nashville's biggest newspaper, The Tennessean.
Pat Martin has teamed up with Carey Bringle of Peg Leg Porkers to compete in Memphis in May later this month.
Martin and Bringle have been doing practice cooks every night this week to prepare for the contest and with a budget of $16,000, they can afford to. Funding for the team comes from sponsors and from team members who pay $325 for a spot on the team.
I've never competed in a Memphis in May (MIM) contest. I guess I always just assumed that they are priced beyond my bbq budget allowance. Now I know they are. I'll stick to KCBS and FBA.
