While all my motorcycle industry peeps are gearing up for Daytona Bike Week to shake off the winter, I head out to Albuquerque the weekend before to hit the National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show at Sandia Resort. The sting of new hot sauce is the perfect jolt to kick me out of winter hibernation and into gear for spring. And this year I didn’t end up taking a break on the casino floor after going overboard on an empty stomach. Woohoo! That only happened once but even I have to admit it was pretty funny.
The 2019 show kicked off on Friday, March 1st with industry hours before opening up to the general public in the afternoon. Attendance ran pretty high throughout the weekend, with the general public not only sampling vendor products in our own bazaar of the bizarre but also enjoying demos and samples by DISC-IT all throughout the show. Here’s a highlight reel of some of what went down over the weekend.
I’m of course looking forward to next year’s show, as I always do. You can keep updated on our plans for it here.
