Verner Sisters Win Barbecue Contest
Susan Moon of Hollow Rock and Jamie Summers of McKenzie won grand champion in the Smokin’ Downtown BBQ Cook-Off on October 20 and 21 in Bolivar.
The lone all-female team, named Verner’s Barnyard BBQ, also won second in ribs and pork and fourth in chicken as they competed in a field of 16 teams.
Fourteen years ago, Jim Verner, their dad, started competing at the Bruceton in May. Two years ago, Jim turned the team over to his daughters. The girls use techniques taught to them by their father. Young Anna Summers attended and Jamie hopes her daughter will carry on the tradition.
