HUBA’s First Ever BBQ Event

Hillsboro’s HUBA (Hillsboro Uptown Business Association) hosted their first annual barbecue contest this past Friday and Saturday. Sixteen teams showed up on Friday evening to fire up their smokers and begin the process of rendering pork shoulder into the smoked pork so many of us love.

I was among the six judges who decided whose talents and techniques produced the best pork and, as always, it was a blast. Getting to sample so many styles and offer your opinion is just a great way to spend a Saturday morning, even if the temperature was soaring towards a lethal high.

Since it was a “blind” judging I didn’t know the names of the eventual winners. But, following are a selection of photos I took and maybe you’ll recognize some people.

Do you judge pro? I’m KCBS and FBA certified (or certifiable), but my cardiologist told me I couldn’t judge any more a couple of years ago. I really miss it, maybe even enough to volunteer to judge a backyard event.
