Big Fat Daddy’s would like to sponsor Hogging Up again, and has found what appears to be a good location for a future KCBS BBQ Festival & Competition closer to home base near York, Pennsylvania. This undisclosed location will power big rigs and have a covered building for the judges. We are currently discussing possibilities with the property owner who has ongoing construction and improvements to the site. It is unforseen when all these improvements will be completed and if we can book a date for 2016 but we are working on it. Things have been busy for Big Fat Daddy’s during 2015 doing the Factory Tour Stop for the County of York–the Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. These barbecue tours raise money for Bell Socialization Services, a local shelter in York Pennsylvania. So far we’ve had visitors from 12 different states who have enjoyed their visit. This came after we’d been inducted into the Southern Food and Beverage Museum and on top of that filmed on the second season of Food Network’s Carnival Eats show for our Colossal Got Beef? ® Crabcake.

Although the HoggingUp wordpress site is still going here, the HoggingUp.com URL is being redirected. So what’s up with that?
Festival Cancellation 2015
Hogging Up BBQ & Music Festival was officially put on hold for 2015 due to other commitments by Big Fat Daddy’s as per previous announcements, namely a stint with the Convention and Visitors Bureau of York County, Pennsylvania for public tours. We’ve gotten a lot of vendor inquiries so we’re posting it again.
Outlook for 2016 : Will there be a Hogging Up?
The usual date and location for 2016 looks bleak since festivals have moved around. Big Fat Daddy’s was using their (bye week aka vacation week) to host the festival, as they are booked solid into fairs and vending the remainder of the year with contacts already into May 2016 so hosting on other weeks is an issue. If this festival is held for 2016 year, it would have to be another date and possible location / venue change closer to the Big Fat Daddy’s home base. What will happen to Hogging Up remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more info.
Looking for BBQ Festivals to Attend in June? We suggest checking out:
West Virginia: Almost Heaven BBQ Festival Buckhannon – 3rd week of June
Virginia: Covington ‘s BBQ Festival 3rd week of June
DC Safeway BBQ Battle – end of June
And guess what? It’s Not BBQ! It’s Crab Dip since Wayne is from Baltimore his famous crab dip recipe made the Carnival Eats show. Filmed in May, it’s airing now.
We get asked a lot, just how many recycled trophies did it take to make enough for the barbecue festival? A whole lot! If you figure we gave trophies out for top ten in each category, plus specialty trophies and MVP’s, we made about 50 trophies out of over 300 old ones. This is simple, we break them down by disassembling and rebuild into bigger and better ones. We refurbish old parts and donate the toppers we donate to RetroChalet on Etsy (crafters use the toppers for wine stoppers.)
So if you consider for every 300 old trophies, we can make 50 new ones that’s keeping a lot of trophies out of the landfill! Thanks to donations from MD, DC, VA and PA who include schools and colleges, and we thank them!

The Assembly of God Church of Clear Brook announced they will have fun things for kids to do “free or donation only” including Facepainting, Sac Races, Frisbee Toss, Bubble Wands, and more old time fun things to keep the kids occupied.
Saturday Free Activities include Home Depot will be coming out Saturday to have a “free” Kid’s Workshop! This is courtesy of Home Depot 2350 Legge Blvd, 540-723-0619
Paid activities include the Blue Angels Plane (photo prices tbd) and Mini Train ride for a few bucks.. Adults can have fun riding a mechanical bull for a small fee, if they date.
As a reminder, our partner the Marriott is running a special deal for Judges , patrons and guests at this year’s Hogging UP Event, however you must book by June 1st to get this wonderful discount rate.

For Immediate Release
Hogging Up BBQ & Music Festival Returns to Virginia
Interactive BBQ Tour, Sample Tent , and Low Cost Kids Area Aims to Please
May 16, 2014
Clear Brook, VA – The Frederick County Fairgrounds again hosts the 2nd Annual Hogging Up BBQ & Music Festival June 27-29th 2014. The event features a Kansas City Barbeque Society cookoff and help three non-profits including the Winchester/Frederick/Clarke SPCA, Clear Brook Assembly of God’s Youth Mission and the Winchester Exchange Club. Big Fat Daddy’s Organizer Wayne Schafer promises this year’s festival will be bigger and better. Schafer says, “We’ve worked really hard on making changes that the public will like. Our BBQ event will be more interactive this year.”
Friday night promises a two stop barbecue tour. Schafer indicates, “The BBQ tour is where these Professional teams will be giving lectures giving away free tips and tricks that the home barbecue guru can use. This is really interesting as the public gets to interact and ask questions. They normally don’t do this kind of thing, and I’d like to thank the teams for supporting our cause.” Featured artist is country performing artist Michael Palmer.
Saturday’s most anticipated change is the People’s Choice Sample Tasting Tent, from 11am-2pm (or when samples run out.) Schafer says, “We worked hard with the health department and the teams to make this work. Teams will be cooking pork and numbered samples sold to the public who will judge and cast their numeric vote into the It Works Official Voting Booth”. The day’s events include performers Cosette Gobat, Burnt Orange Band and Rule-G in addition to a three stop barbecue tour including the return of TLC’s Pitmasters TV Show Season 2 Stars 3 Eyz BBQ . During the day dozens of professional BBQ teams will compete for fame, glory, some as far away as Ohio. Prizes will be given to the public throughout the day at the Vacation Village / Massanutten tent, and one lucky couple will win dinner with Professional Team Hog-It-Up BBQ on Saturday night.
Sunday’s events include a Backyard BBQ Contest for Adults (15 and up) and Kids (8-14) which Schafer says “It’s a great idea for family bonding time bring your meat and grill and come out!” Entry is $20 per adult team entry and $10 per child team, with adults present to light fire and oversee activities. Performing artists Brian Buchanan and Gary Smallwood will be taking the stage in addition to Evel Speed Motor Sick’l Shop of Inwood hosting a Bike & Car Show. Additionally, there is a Certified BBQ Judge class being taught by the KCBS on Sunday on the fairgrounds. All registration information can be found on the website.
All three days promise tasty food, merchandise vendors and a kids zone. Schafer says, “Most of the kids activities are run by the church and will be donation based. Home Depot will bring their free Kid’s Workshop out on Saturday.” Some cost based rides for kids include a mini train, and a fee for pictures inside the Blue Angels Phantom F4 cockpit (it was grounded last year) and an adult mechanical bull ride. Admission to the event is $5 on Friday (4pm-9pm), $8 on Saturday (10am-9:30pm) and only $1 Sunday (11am-5pm). Kids under 12 are always free. The SPCA encourages donates cans of cat food, dog food, and kitty litter at the gate as well. For the samples, tasting tickets may be purchased Friday or Saturday while supplies last at the gate. Hatfield, CF Sauer, Carlyle & Anderson, and Marriott Courtyard Winchester are some of the businesses helping the event survive in addition to being named a 2014 Good Sam Event destination. Schafer indicates they are no major money sponsors, and they are in need. Organizers are currently planning a Hogging Up West Virginia to be held in Great Cacapon, WV in October 2014.
