I have been invited to the Pig Jig this year. My partner in crime has a good friend that competes in this event and has asked us if we wanted to "help". It is a 9.5 hour drive from my hometown but don't think that will be an issue. We are planning on leaving at 3am Friday morning. We decided to drive after we looked at plane tickets. Wow, the prices have gone up in the last couple of years. I hear that they are competing in whole hog, which I have never cooked. Should be a great learning experience considering I have never competed nor even been to a BBQ competition. Getting pretty excited about it. If there is anyone on the forum that will be there let me know. Should be a great weekend. Aaron.
