The rain held off for the 4th annual steak and BBQ cook-off Saturday July 15th, at Juniors Meat Market, in French Settlement. Fifteen cooks fired up their BBQ pits and smokers before the sun rise early that morning. The three categories that were cooked, were spaced out 30 minutes apart, for turn in. Chicken had to be turned in at noon, followed by ribs and steak. The Kinler Brothers band played music all day and mc’ed the event. New this year was the potato salad contest and it was a big hit. The event gets bigger and better every year. The winners are as follows.
