Pork in the Park 2011, the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) sanctioned Maryland State Championship
Held in Salisbury, Maryland on April 15 – 17, 2011, it is the second largest KCBS sanctioned event in the country, and the largest on the East Coast. This year it was a success despite the weather.
Here’s how we spent our day there:
We arrived on Saturday April 16th on a windy, blustery, and very busy day in the competition area. Teams were running to get the pork turn-in done on time.
For the first time in our 4 years attending, we were able to get into the judges tent for a few pictures. It was amazingly quiet. We got in just as they were beginning to judge the pork entries – the next-to-last turn in, to be followed by the brisket.
