Pork in the Park 2011

Pork in the Park:
Salisbury MD – 7th Annual KCBS Competition

The biggest KCBS sanctioned event east of the Mississippi, Pork in the Park, takes place in Salisbury, MD next weekend – April 16-18, 2010

This year Pork in the Park is bigger than ever with 137 teams competing!
That… is… huge!

Last year, more than 90 competitors from ten states vied for trophies, bragging rights and $18,000 in prizes, making the Pork in the Park Barbeque Festival in Salisbury Maryland one of the nation’s ten largest barbeque festivals sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society. In 2009, we were crowned the Largest KCBS Festival East of the Mississippi!

We’re really excited to be able to attend all three days – and we’ll be there to get some pics, some BBQ sauce and hot sauce stories.
Also, we’re hoping to interview some teams and vendors for soundbites and stories for our HotSauceWeekly podcast!

A Few Teams of Note:

Last year’s Grand Champion, Hawg Eyes BBQ, will be returning to defend their title.

We know a few of the teams personally, some from online contacts, and others that we definitely want to meet.

Todd’s Dirt will also be there as a vendor. Todd’s got some awesome products.
Of course there will be tons of food vendors – rides for the kids, and live entertainment all weekend.

  1. I might be able to come out one of the 3 days. We are having a Garden Show on Saturday in Leesburg, VA where I live, and we have the Chile Man going, and I need to talk with him. Maybe a video, who knows.

  2. Can’t attend, but would like to go some day. Hot Sauce is not just a food additive, but a way of life.

  3. Brian and Marilyn it was great hanging with you guys this week-end. From a guy used to supermarket hot sauce I can learn a lot from you guys.

  4. Brian,
    I’ll see you in Salisbury. Also, I want to let you know that i’m making another batch of my BBQ Sauce soon and will deliver you some. Would you like ribs with the sauce?
