Albany-  A Fourth of July celebration wouldn't be a party in south Georgia without BBQ.  Chopped BBQ and BBQ Chicken were both on the menu at the J. L. Litman's eighth annual Eastside Community Cookout.

The chefs worked for two days to prepare enough meat to feed a thousand or more. The secret to their BBQ is to smoke it slowly. 

"Smoking it, see what it does, when you put it on there and the heat will be under there and the smoke will come up off the coals and that will season it good," said Willie Mathis, BBQ Chef. 

Along with the BBQ, hamburgers, hot dogs and watermelon filled everyone's stomach.
