A Buck a Bone


This is a shot taken at a Barbecue Cook Off Competition. There were quite a few participants - all cooking up their prize winning entries. This shot shows a booth with lots of different sauces. I requested beef brisket "Hotter than Hell" and thought I was going to need to call the Fire Department, to put the fire out on my tongue. It was good - and it was HOT! Tickets were sold for $1 each, and for "A Buck a Bone" (one ticket) generous portions were served. Some even offered free grub. As I walked amid this small encampment of modern day travel trailers, smokers, campfires, and barbecue aroma - I couldn't help envisioning the scene as it would of possibly looked 100 years ago, with covered wagons, campfires, horses, and cowboys. I guess it was the moon, and stars of the night sky that set the stage for a little nostalgia.
