BBQ Throwdown in D'Iberville

Hundreds turned out in D'Iberville for the 4th annual BBQ Throwdown. The sanctioned event drew competitors from around the south and the competition was fierce.

"Their all friends, but they all want to win," said Andy Hollerman with the International BBQ cooking association.

There were two categories in this particular event, Pro and Backyard. The pros take it very seriously.

"Sure I want to win the trophy. These people pick up points throughout the year in an effort to win the coveted national team championship at the end of the year," said Terry Welch, publisher of BBQ World Magazine.

Judges sampled chicken, ribs and brisket. Smoke filled the air and the sweet aroma of BBQ was a big hit with the people who came to enjoy the event.
