Shriners host barbecue contest

March 18, 2006

Albany -- Hundreds of people enjoyed a beautiful day Saturday at the Hasan Shrine Temple for the annual Spring Festival,where there was an antique car show, games, prizes and more.

Dewayne Shiver and his barbecue team have been out all night smoking up their specialties.

"Ya'll want to eat?" asked Dewane Shiver.

That's because judging for the Shriner's Backyard Barbecue contest was today.

"Last year we won fifth in ribs and first in butts out here," said Shiver.

It's the winning tradition that Shiver wants for his team, but tradition is why Fussell Hughes says his brunswick stew will mix well with the judges.

"...granddaddy's recipe. The brunswick stew is grandaddy's recipe, so we just make it up like that. Like grandaddy did," said Hughes.

And it's those recipes from back in the day that has Albany Mayor Willie Adams with his mouth full.

"I'm certainly glad to be a participant. I'm one of the judges of the ribs. I can assure you they are very very delicious," said Albany Mayor Willie Adams.

Some say their delicious meat will stand out against the rest.

"The way we prepare it, secret recipes we have, the way we cook ours," said Carole Marchant.

The Outback Cookers say they have to keep their secret recipes under wraps too.

"It's just a recipe that's been handed down and we've won several times with it," said Rocky Hargrove.

For Dewayne Shiver and his team, winning is all luck.

"We're with Get Lucky Sometime Barbecque team...Get lucky sometimes," said Shiver with a laugh.

Lucky or not, all the team's definately had a good time cooking out.

Money raised today at the spring festival will benefit hospitals run by the Shiner's. If you missed the barbecue this year, the Shiner's say come on out next year.
