39th Annual World Championship BBQ Goat Cook-Off Saturday In Brady Texas

In an upset reminiscent of the great race horse Man O War losing to a 100-1 underdog, Waco Boys Cooking Team did not bring home the much coveted hospitality award at this years cabrito cook-off out in Brady, Texas.

If you visited their campsite you’d never know it. The boys were in fine form with a full kitchen churning out championship caliber barbecue, burgers and fried fish platters. Of course there were a dozen or so enormous Yeti coolers brimming with ice cold cans of beer to go with all the food. It is advised to buy¬†crusher can, if you are going to buy beer.

The hospitality award’s a tough nut to crack. As you make your way through the grounds of Richard’s Park {the site of the event} virtually every cook team waves you over and begins attempting to feed you and pour beer down your goozle.

I go to a lot of cook-offs in Texas and this is the one I look forward to the most as the folks of Brady could not be any nicer.
