Grazefest in Montgomery AL -- Sept. 11-12 2004

The SFA is serving as curator of pitmasters for Pasture to the Pit, an exposition and barbecue feed to be held September 11 - 12 at Garrett Coliseum in Montgomery. Take a look at www.eatingfresh.com for details. On that Sunday, five Deep South pitmasters -- including Van Sykes of Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q (Bessemer, AL) Chris Lilly of Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q (Decatur, AL) and Leatha Jackson of Leatha's Bar-B-Que Inn (Hattiesburg, MS) -- will smoke heirloom varieties of pasture-raised pork. Lucky eaters will judge whether the resulting barbecue is better.
