I heart Fat Guys!

Well Two Fat Guys to be specific!

We went to a bbq contest in BayCity this weekend. I think the technical term is Pig Gig. The drive was nice and the bbq delicious!

We tried two pull pork sandwiches from two different vendors and the two fat guys from Ohio was really good! Loved the flavor of the smoked pork and you added your sauce on the side, we chose the sweet and spicy sauce mixed with some hot! YUMMY!!!

The Touch of Smoke team from MI had great sauces but the pork wasn't as smoky as the Fat Guys. We really liked the apple and cherry sauces and were surprised that the maple was fantastic too! We didn't care too much (as in not at all) for the jerk sauce they had. Funny I preferred the bun from Two Fat Guys and John liked the onion roll Touch of Smoke uses.

We had a blast several years ago when we went to a BBQ / Hot Air Balloon festival in London with some friends. (Hi Liz!) We have been to several Balloon festivals since but this was the first bbq one we've been able to make. So glad that the drive was a bit shorter (only 1 1/2 hours) and no border crossing traffic or backups.

The car ride was interesting. Every other song on the radio was Eminem. Luckily we like him so we just sang along.

I still need to post about our fantabulous vacation to the Upper Peninsula. 10 days and 1400 + pics. Feels like we never left and yet so fresh all at the same time. why is that???

Until next time...
