A couple of weekend ago, craving warmer temp’s and a little family visit, we drove down to London, Kentucky to meet up with my mom and stepdad for a barbecue competition. (Hilariously named “Grills Gone Wild.) Back when we lived in Tennessee we’d join in on these pretty frequently, but it’s been a long while since we’ve been able to participate. Unfortunately it rained most of the weekend, which meant cold and mud, but we still took our jobs as “runners” (the people who turn in the meats to the judges) very seriously. And it felt amazing to be with the fam again, if only for a few days.
