Nothing beats a barbecue on a hot August weekend, except for maybe 20 to 30 barbecues on a hot August weekend. That's what Kim Stearns and Greg Prado are planning this summer on Aug. 23 and 24. They are organizing a professionally sanctioned barbecue competition called "Smoke on the Water at McEuen Park." Prado, a board member of the Pacific Northwest Barbecue Association, said so far the prize pool is $5,000 spread across 26 prize categories. "We may get more money than that," Prado said on Tuesday. "If we can get more sponsors behind this we could get it up to $10,000"/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
