This morning I received an e-mail from John Bertoldi, president of UP Hog Wild . For the uninitiated, UP stands for Upper Peninsula. (It's a Michigan thing.)
The popularity of bbq contests in Michigan is growing and the UP contest is in its' fourth year.
The UP Hog Wild event is sanctioned by KCBS and is being held in Kingsford Michigan. They will have music, a car show, a big class reunion, and more. Check out http://www.uphogwild.com/ for all the details and a list of teams registered for 2008. They are looking for a few good bbq vendors for the event.
