Jack Daniel's 18th World Championship Invitational BBQ, Lynchburg, Tennessee

"When the trees start turning autumn hues and there's a slight chill to the Hollow, you know the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue can't be far off! This year's event, slated for Saturday, October 28, will mark the 18th time the Distillery has hosted this festive cook-off, showcasing award-winning teams from across the United States and abroad. Armed with original recipes and secret ingredients, these teams vie for top honors in what's become acclaimed as the most prestigious barbecue competition in the world!

In addition to watching these culinary masters concocting and serving up the yummiest barbecue you've ever tasted, there will also be plenty of other activities to see and do throughout the day. Highlights include the Country Dog contest, Ladies Rolling Pin Toss, and Butt Bowling. There is also a special tent for members of the Tennessee Squire Association where you can unwind in the company of other Squires and meet some of the local Lynchburg personalities you've heard from over the years."

Suzi and I took a trip to Lynchburg with her sister Barbie, and Barbie's daughter Lauryn ("Chuck").
