On Friday night, barbecue took over North Dallas for a special event.
It’s the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 Big D BBQ Battle, which is essentially three events in one. First, participating North Texas businesses prepared their brisket, ribs and beans overnight. Then, the food was judged by public officials and celebrities, including radio personality Gina Miller and weatherman Kevin Roth, the next morning. Trophies were awarded later that day. Then finally, the teams served the public their food in a fun environment that includes live music by Hudson Moore. Local beer was provided by Four Corners Brewing Co. to help wash down all the delicious brisket, ribs and beans.
The night seemed to be a success, even with the weather. At about 6:45 p.m. Friday, the Big D BBQ Battle was shut down because of impending thunderstorms and other bad weather.
@NDCC too much weather… Perfect amount of BBQ.

Even with the bad weather, awards were still given out. For beans, first place went to Asher Media. For Ribs, first place went to Luna Data Solutions, and for brisket, first place went to Neil Richards Group. The Grand Champion for highest cumulative scores in all barbecue categories went to Baker Brothers Plumbing.
Congratulations to everyone!
