Cattlemen's Smokin' Hot BBQ
San Juan PR Results / Feb. 22-23
Holy BBQ Batman! The Cattlemen's 7th Annual Smokin' Hot BBQ held at the Convention Center in San Juan Puerto Rico Feb. 22 & 23 was a huge success. The contest was loaded with great cookers and the scores were very tight, just a few thousandths of a point difference in many categories. On Saturday in the ancillary contests there were two ties in Burgers and Wings of Fame for 3rd place. Every score a perfect mirror of the other teams head to head all the way through so they all received third place honors and awards and that's how tight this contest was both days.
Everybody knows that every day is a great day to BBQ in the Caribbean, and February is the best month of the year. Temperatures hang around the mid to low 80's and we maintain a good steady breeze from the east. The days of the contest the skis were a clear and blue, with exception of a quick passing shower Saturday morning.
This year the event shifted from the back parking lot to the main entrance green park areas and included1000 feet of sidewalks along the canal and large amounts of green areas and shady palms where families spread out with blankets and lawn chairs for two days of some good eating of BBQ and grand entertainment to record breaking crowds of Grilling & BBQ fans from PR, the Caribbean and the USA. The whole vibe was excellent. It rang of food, fun, and family everywhere.
