The California Classic Barbecue Competition 2003
May 2 &3 2003, Antioch
CA

The First Annual California Classic was a wonderful success with a 180 in the anything "Goes Event". WE had teams from all over the State of California come in for the $1500 in Cash prizes and trophies. It was wet but the teams were determined to not let the rain beat them. Friday most of the teams were cooking by around 6pm with a few more coming in later that night and two even started at 6 am Saturday. We had several first time competitors as well as some veterans of the Q. The host of the venue was the Contra Costa County Fairgrounds and they provided a wonderful area with grass and trees and plenty of rain. The event was sponsored by Smokehouse woods.com, Lazzari Charcoal and Jeffbbq.com. Big Os Too Hot for U was a husband and wife team Alan and Mary Odor and this being there second KCBS event. Mary turned in a pineapple upside down cake that was to die for folks. It would have won the county fair, state fair and then some. The judges loved it so much they gave her a 180 for the cake.  BBQn Fools was a solo team this event with Grant Ford cooking on his Weber Smokey Mountain Cookers and taking the Grand Champion spot. He earned it by placing a 1st in Chicken, 4th in Pork Ribs, 1st in Pork, and 5th in Brisket. Out of this World BBQ took Reserve Grand Champion and coming all the way from Imperial Beach 487 miles each way. We also had the Pork Assassins, Big Moose, BBQ Pit, Rocket Men, Meatheads, Max Q, Monterey Cooking with Talnfat, The Bayou Boys, Rics Righteous Ribs, Five Alarm BBQ and LWNNA cooking this event.

It has been several years since a KCBS sanctioned event in Northern California and the teams were ready and so were the judges. We had 14 KCBS Certified Judges and 4 non certified judges but with bbq judging experience. Two great KCBS rep were running the contest, Frank Boyer and Jim Mehl.

It was wet, some wind on Friday, the grass got a little soggy on Saturday but by the first turn in time the sun was out and the clouds were going away. It never got cold but it was a record amount of rain for May in that area. We had one team opt for cooking in the large pavilion, they were the only ones dry.

Special thanks to Smokehouse woods for supplying each team with wood and also Lazzari Charcoal for there support with 30lb bags of mesquite for each team. Jeff Jones of jeffbbq.com was the event promoter and wants to thank each and every team, judge, Rep, and the KCBS office staff and board for making this all happen and be a huge success. Without all of you it would not have been such great fun.

I am looking forward to the next Nor-Cal Event, keep watching the calendars on CBBQA.com and Jeffbba.com for more information

Thanks
