HLSR World Championship BBQ Cookoff (25 pics)
It was a heck of a busy weekend for the Rut team and we started it all off at the HLSR World Championship BBQ Cookoff in Houston, TX. Our buddy Ryan Wade invited us out to taste some of the smokey goodness that won his team, the Bulldog Mountain Cookin Crew, 1st place in 2016. We took full advantage of his invite and loaded up on some of the best brisket, sausage and baked beans that we’ve ever had (seriously, we’ve been trying to crack the bean recipe for 3 days now). This year the Bulldog Mountain Cookin Crew took 5th overall out of 250+ teams. They placed 13th in brisket, 14th in ribs and 23rd in chicken (INSANE to beat out so MANY teams)! We had an amazing time filling our faces, throwin back the cocktails and taking in all the madness that is the Houston Rodeo. Here’s a look at some of Friday night’s sights.
