TippyCanoe BBQ Crew will be competing in the Great Pork BarbeQlossal at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines. It will be just my family this weekend and we are really looking forward to it. We have heard nothing but good things about this event!
The Qlossal is different than all of the other competitions we will compete in this year. The event is sponsored by the National Pork Board and is a pork only contest that follows the same KCBS rules. The biggest change is the categories themselves. They are pork, pork ribs, pork loin, and whole hog (the whole hog category does not count towards to overall results). We don't have the capacity to cook a whole hog so we will only be doing the first three. With our results in chicken and brisket the past couple of weeks I'm a little sad to see them left out, but it will be fun to try something different.
With 59 of the best teams in the country coming to town it will be challenge to place in this one!
