The Jack! The freaking Jack! The Holy Grail of BBQ!
Brad and Caroline of the Pistol Packin Piggies were kind enough to invite me, so of course I was going...this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We drove my truck 20 hours in each direction and cooked up a storm. Luckily, this was the 25th Anniversary of the Jack, and they brought all the previous winners back for a special Winners Circle event. I was able to meet so many famous BBQ names, it was such a thrill.
We were gone for 10 days. My wife is the best for allowing me to take off like that. :-)
