Hanging Out at Houston Firefest

Where there's smoke, there's firemen barbecuing up a mess of briskets, sausage and chicken. The Houston Firefest event was this past Saturday, October 25. Thanks to a friend of mine, I got to go hang out the night before as the different crews fired up their smokers to prepare for the Saturday competitions.

I got to chow down with the Red Knights Team, who got second place in the brisket competition the next day. Lucky me. Here are some photos of the event.
