‘Bout That Pork!
Fire & Feast is right around the corner, and this competition is shaping up to be fantastic! To help y’all get as excited as we are, here is a look back at some of our greatest hits…
Our attitude-laden t-shirts have already reached near legendary status in the 5 short years since we started this contest. Let’s take a look back at that ‘tude, starting with our second festival in 2012 (because we learned a LOT from the first one…which need not be mentioned here LOL)!!
Our 2012 shirts set the stage for every year since. We hear folks are still talking about this one, and looking for more. All of our shirts, however, are limited editions. Once they’re gone… you’ll be crying over your beer if you missed out.
The 2013 Fire & Feast T-shirt-that-almost-wasn’t! We’ve been told that our volunteers are so awesome that we make putting a contest of this size on look effortless (which it ain’t, let me just tell ya). But every now and again our behind-the-scenes plans get blown away. Thankfully, our charcoal-gray 2013 shirts made it through the storm, and into history.
We usually have a ton of ideas that would make great shirts. The biggest struggle every year is choosing THE t-shirt idea to go with. The 2014 T-shirts definitely laid the groundwork for our shirts this year. The song lyric, the the pig (because PORK duh!)… all led us to….
…You KNOW we’re #allaboutthatpork … And, while we know our teams love the sport of BBQ, and love visiting Yazoo every year, and ‘do it because we love it’ – we know you, too, are very excited about those 21,325 “strips of BACON” (so to speak) that we’ll be handing out to our winners come Saturday, Sept. 12th.
With this competition being just around the corner, we had to say that we can’t wait to see our “old” friends again, and to welcome the new teams we have this year (who will be “old” friends come next year!). Have a great Labor Day weekend, and check back here in the next day or two for a look at all of our trophies – which are AWESOME (if we do say so ourselves…but we know you’ll say it, too)!
