This year’s Santa Anita Winners Circle BBQ Championship was huge. At least for California. With 103 teams battling it out for $X in prize money, it was the largest KCBS event in the state’s history.
Sometimes we get slow news weeks and I have to save up items just to give people a decent-sized post. This is not one of those weeks. From food competitions to seaweed beer and Doritos Roulette, there’s a lot to talk about.
My post-Vegas food coma (aka, the itis) finally ended so I’m back at the keyboard writing about motorcycles and food again. Woohoo! We’re starting the week off with Hot News and it’s all about reapers, roosters, and ribs.
It’s possible I could have had more fun at the 2013 World Food Championships—I just would’ve needed bail money to do so. Too much happened to tell you in one blog post so I’m opening up with this overview. If you want a visual guide, you can check out our photo album on our Facebook page. Seeing how the event invaded Downtown Sin City this November 7-10, let’s break down the festivities by their corresponding Seven Deadly Sins.
Happy Independence Day, everybody! This may be the busiest backyard barbecue day of the year, but there’s no reason the fun has to stop when the last fireworks have faded into the night sky.

The man is a machine, albeit one who still uses the same simple setup you see on television. Where the other 109 teams were all more elaborate than SYO (Slap Yo’ Daddy), he was the one walking away with the title. The guy’s got heart. He’s also really busy, which is why I was stoked when he agreed to answer my questions for this interview.
