Mr. Freak joined the rockstar Whole Hog team from Steamboat BBQ last week for 6 action-packed days at the World Championship BBQ Cooking Contest at Memphis in May.
Over those days this die-hard team pitmastered by Steamboat's John Bovinette moved tons of equipment, built a BBQ palace beside the river, threw a fully catered corporate event, competed in 5 ancillary contests and prepared two gorgeous hogs for the main event, where we finished 12th overall in a field stacked with many of the famous cooks you've all seen on TV.
This photo essay captures some of the notable moments...
