Scottsboro, AL BBQ Cook Off


Ran down to fish Guntersville today and got a call from my good friend JP Parsons. He asked if I was coming to the Scottsboro BBQ cook off on the square, and since I was already hungry I almost ran there.

Now when he said BBQ cook off I was thinking a few local dudes going at it. Well it was closer to 20+ contestants, a food and craft fair of about 78 booths, and a beer garden. I do love gardens so away I went.


The food was out of this world and really reasonable. After I grabbed some BBQ I went to the beer garden with JP and tested the Oktoberfest brew they had, and since I have been to Oktoberfest a couple times, it passed the test.


After that we went by the Lil’ Donut Factory for desert and boy those donuts came straight from heaven above. Last stop was a tour through the Scottsboro Tackle Company. Talk about a well stocked tackle store! If they don’t have it you darn sure do not “need it”.



Lastly I had to find a restroom, and porta potties at these events have been known to be rather… Interesting for lack of a better term. They had trailers from an outfit called “A Woman’s Touch” , and folks these were as clean as a hospital. Kind of a nice surprise at an outdoor event in the south.

The fishing well that’s for another story!
