It all started back in 2005. Cabela's in Hamburg, Pa advertised a BBQ contest in the local paper to come out and show you were made of real BBQ material. At the same time, thad a friend who said he would do the cutting and welding if they wanted to build a whole hog cooker that they had been talking about. As they looked into this sanctioning body, the Kansas City Barbeque Society, I became more interested in cooking this contest. The hog cooker morphed into a trailer mounted reverse flow, similar to a Meadow Creek or a Lang. They had been bbq'ing for a number of years in the backyard and thought they could stand beside the big boys, or at least give them a run for their money. Enter the Contest!! After that they were hooked. In the beginning, they had 4 to 6 people taking shifts tending the fire all night long.
After ringing in the bells with a perfect 180 in chicken, Christmas City BBQ went on to place 2nd Chef's Choice and 3rd Sausage.
Christmas City brought home the gold at the Pit in the Park Das Awkscht Fest in Macungie, PA. They claimed 1st place Pork, 1st Chef's choice and 1st in Dessert! Golly Gee they are on a roll!
Christmas City BBQ brought home two honorable mentions in Brisket and Ribs, and a fourth place in chefs choice at the New Holland Summer Fest.
