This is my first BBQ food festival. Sure, I have attended other themed food festivals and the now scarce "Taste of (name your town) in the past. But our travels to Boston for a wedding opened up an opportunity to visit the Phantom BBQ Beach Party (http://bbq.phantomgourmet.com/SD/home.aspx).
We hit four of the seven champs and sampled their ribs or pulled pork. The weather was great, cloudy and even a light sprinkle. Why is this great? Well it kept the temperatures low so we didn't bake on the parking lot. No tents were available!
But the chow was tasty.
I was kind of partial to the Two Fat Guys "Q".
