Holy Smoke! Michigan is Barbecuing!

It was only a few years ago that if you competed on the Kansas City Barbecue Society's competitive circuit, and you were from Michigan, you had to the leave the state.  There was the Grand Rapids tournament, and that was it.  

But that was then, and this is now.  

With the addition of the Michigan State Barbecue Championship in Jackson, MI, we now have eight competitions, all sanctioned by the KCBS.  

Team Grilladelic is hoping to compete in at least three events this year.  Maybe more.  

If you have any interest in putting a team together, or hanging out at an event to learn more, let me know.  More than happy to help spread the insanity!
