Brad's Beat: Jack Daniel's World Championship Barbecue Competition
By Brad Douglas
CARTHAGE, MO.--- A Carthage couple will be competing against other countries for the best tasting BBQ. Chad and Nicole Backerman have been invited to compete in the Jack Daniel's World Championship Barbecue. It will be held in Tennessee on October 26th. The Backerman's are on the road most weekends taking part in BBQ competitions, and they've taken home dozens of trophies in the past six years. They say there is a trick to making a good BBQ sauce.
"You gotta blend your flavors. You can't have any one flavor stand out too much, like too much sweet, too much heat, too much salt. Gotta be a nice blend," said Chad Backerman, Caveman Cuisine.
This will be the Backerman's second trip to the Jack Daniel's competition. They placed ninth and they hope to get the top spot this year.
