“We want the community to come out and enjoy some great bar-b-q and have a great time,” said Scott Golman, Lifetime Executive Committee member.
New to the Montgomery County Fair cook-off, but not new to bar-b-q competitions, Lang “Bull” Chapman and his Wild Willis Kookers took fifth place in brisket, ribs, and chicken out of 122 teams. Cooking for the K-Star (99.7 FM) radio station’s spot, Chapman summed up the experience.
“Everybody was very welcoming as they all know everybody who should be there,” said Chapman. “Getting the calls that I got brought a lot of respect from me, for everybody else.” Attendees with hearty appetites came out in volume to the cook-off competition and were the big winners, having the opportunity to sample the best bar-b-q and fixins in the county.
