This is the future of barbecue: the line-up of awesome competitors at our third-ever Townsend Spice Kids’ Que at Praise the Lard Murphysboro Barbecue Cook-off.
Filled with gifts from our sponsors. We’re particularly grateful to Thermoworks, who provided a Thermopop for each child. I saw several parents coveting these.
Chris Pritchard fills each grill with hot coals from our burn barrel.
This year the competitors cooked chicken breasts, generously donated by Jack’s Meat Market in Murphysboro.
Brother/sister team work. John Voss and Madison Voss.
