Check and check. The ninth annual Pork in the Park National BBQ Cookoff serves up a weekend (April 20-22) of barbecue cookoff competitions, live music and special events at Winterplace Park (6737 Blue Ribbon Road, Salisbury, Md.), about 120 miles southeast of D.C.
'Cue competitors at the event will vie for a portion of the $20,000 cash prize and of course bragging rights to being the best darn barbecue cooks in the region. (And the $20,000. Did we mention that?)
