I checked out BBQ on the Bow for the first time, earlier this aft. I am not sure what I expected but it didn't seem as interesting as I'd hoped. After an hour we were done. There was nothing more to see. We bought some sauces and checked out a few booths.
Having one caterer for the entire event with pork or beef brisket sandwich being the only food offered didn't work for us.
We'd hoped to talk to the competitors and pick up some tips, but they were either unapproachable or trying to sell something. No real 'bbq' tips offered here.
I have never been to a BBQ Competition so maybe this is how they are? I'd be interested in hearing what other experiences were, here or another city?
