|The highlight for me...smoked turkey leg!|
A few of weeks ago (on Flag Day), I attended the Swinetastic BBQ Festival at the fairgrounds in Frederick, MD.
Aside from being underwhelmed with the shabby VIP tent, I did sample a couple of good eats (BBQ ribs and smoked turkey legs) from Big Fat Daddy's BBQ and Lovey's Homemade Ice Cream.
Lovey's Bacon Maple Ice Cream:
|Bacon Maple Ice Cream: Creamy with smoky bacon flavor with swirls of sweet maple syrup.|
There were also a few interesting names of BBQ competition winners from the region and great root beer by Wild Bill Old Fashioned Soda Pop Co....
Unfortunately, I always go wrong with crab dip dishes. These crab dip fries from Charley's were the worst. Overcompensating for flavorless crab dip, the extra Old Bay just made it a salty mess!
One interesting vendor was Thousand Oaks Barrel, Co. offering barrels for home aging.
