Hub City BBQ Heats Up

The air downtown is filled with the sweet smell of barbecue. Judging for the 7th annual Hub City Bar-B-Q took place Thursday afternoon.  

Ninety teams competed in this years competition. There can be up to five people on each team, and the teams spent all day cooking. There are three competition categories- brisket, ribs, and other meat.

NewsChannel 11's Pete Christy had the hardest job of the day - he was a judge.  "Oh, it's just torture. It's really tough to open up my mouth and put in some succulent ribs and brisket. It's very, very tough. It's tougher than covering football on Friday nights, and that's tough," said Christy laughing. 

The event lasts from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.  Tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for students, and children five and under eat for free.
