OUTRAGEOUS: Alabama BBQ Contest Officials Tell Pitmasters to Remove U.S. Flags

What could be more American than southern BBQ, the U.S. flag, and competition? Well, in Alabama, BBQ contest officials are now outrageously demanding that contestants remove all American flags from their grilling stands in a Daphne, AL BBQing contest!

How is it that these contest officials imagine they can tell participants they aren’t allowed to fly the U.S. flag??

Here is what happened

It happened Feb. 27th at the Sam’s Club National BBQ Competition in Daphne, Ala., sponsored by the Kansas City Barbecue Society.

Jeff is the founder of “Give it to God” competition barbecue — a professional barbecue team that smokes meat and shares the love of Jesus. Both are noble missions.

Last Friday Jeff rolled into town with his barbecue trailer and promptly hoisted Old Glory. Not too long after, one of the organizers of the event told Jeff to take down the flag.

“There were six or eight of us that had flags flying,” he told me. “He went to each camp and told them to take the flag down and everybody did.”

This is outrageous! Who do these people think they are?
