Friday afternoon [Sept. 2] it was obvious to anyone passing by the City Park that the first annual “Smokin’ in the Park” bar-be-que event was off to a great beginning.  By mid-afternoon Saturday, the beef, pork, chicken and beans had been seasoned, smoked and judged bringing the event to a very successful end.  Terry Roberts of Justiceburg won Grand Champion and received an awesome plaque plus $500.  Clay Ham of Gail won Reserve Grand Champion which also included a large plaque plus $250.  Rounding out the top five winners were Bobby Ragland, Mark Opachan and Taylor Fox.
