Did I Mention the Bacon? Great Southern Tailgate Cookoff 2013

2013 08 Culinary BBQ Cookoff 04 Amelia

This past weekend, we once again had the pleasure of being the official photographer of the Great Southern Tailgate Cookoff.  We spent Friday evening and Saturday at the event – enjoying the amazing aroma of the manifold wood smoke and the masterfully crafted meats of the competitors.  Add to the cookoff some top-shelf bands, a fun-filled kids zone, and the great sponsors and vendors, and you’ve got yourself quite the weekend!  New this year was a bacon competition – which ranged from breakfast-style preparations, to bacon desserts such as doughnuts, brownies and chocolate-dipped bacon (below).

All in all, the weekend was an amazing precursor to the great American tradition of tailgating and football!  As always, feel free to download any or all of the images for use as desktop wallpaper!  Enjoy!

Gettin’ Our Pig On – Great Southern Tailgate Cookoff: Day 2

Saturday, we began to feel some effects of Isaac – but not the rain you would expect – rather it was a wonderful breeze off the ocean that made what would have been a pretty hot day downright comfortable.  And that’s pretty rare for an August afternoon!  Saturday was when most of the judging took place, as well as the awards and some great concerts including the world-famous Little River Band. Here are several of our favorite photos from the day – as always, downloadable as HD desktop wallpaper.  Enjoy!
