Barbecue chefs battle it out on the square

November 4, 2005

Douglas- This year 97 teams from across the country are heating up the competition at the 2005 National Barbecue Festival to see who can cook the best chicken, brisket, pork, and ribs.

Stephanie Wilson and her partner came in first in chicken last year. She says a combination of special spices, sauces, and a great grill make their meat the best.

"We just enjoy it. It's an art in an essence, and also the people. You meet so many different people around the country and people you just meet at festival such as this and they're like hey we saw you last year, and then you get to know then and the next thing you know they're bringing you pies," she says.

The Barbecue Festival will continue Saturday with an open competition, backyard grilling contest, and a kids-cue.
