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.

There are only 7 competitors competing for fame and glory in our North Vs. South contest. There are five from Pennsylvania and two from Jersey, all listed here. Basically this is an organizer’s award for the best overall best score of the teams that aren’t in the immediate panhandle area (so if you are a MD/VA/WVA team you are in the Best of the Panhandle Contest.)
North vs South gives teams who came from further away a chance to win something and a nice little thank you for their efforts. In this case, it’s $50 cash and a gift basket that includes goodies from Big Fat Daddy’s . Just a little something something to say thanks for coming all this way!
Will a Jersey team take the cake representing the North? Or will the Pennsylvanians step up and reclaim the South? We know, calling Pennsylvania a southern state is kind of cheesy, but hey, we had to make it work. Good luck to all of you!
The Checkered Flag 500 Competition BBQ Team is our newest addition to the Hogging Up festival and we’d like to give a big HOGGING UP WELCOME to Mark & Sharon Gibbs out of Fawn Grove, Pennsylvania.
