About a month ago, I saw a poster on the side of a building advertising Meatstock. Instantly my interest was peaked. BBQ, beers, and music definitely was definitely something I wanted to be a part of. Even better is the fact that one of the ladies I work with is part of a competitive bbq team with her husband so I had to go and show my support for her.
We were treated to a butchering competition where the competitors had to break down and present a side of lamb and pig in 30 minutes (this was the sweatiest part of the day no doubt), tons of sauces and rubs for sale, online butcher shops, food trucks, and even a vegan protest. I didn’t get to see any protesters though so I’m kinda bummed about that.
All in all it was a cool experience and it was made even better when we found out that Stacey and her team, The Meat Fingers, won the grand championship for their bbq which included a trip to the international competition in Kansas, US.
She was kind enough to bring in the leftover bbq the next day to work so I can confirm their bbq is pretty damn good. I had the meat sweats for days after all that brisket and pulled pork.
