If you haven't gathered this already, the way to my gushy heart is through a perfectly prepared platter of something incredibly delicious and decadent. So, last Saturday, when asked to act as a judge in a local barbecue throwdown at French Quarter Bistro, how could I deny such a request!?

Local chefs, Mark Van Horn of FQB and Mike Tavenner of LePan Catering, battled out once, earlier this year, over the best crafted concoction of jambalaya. This time around, the meat smoking kings tested three courses of classic picnic staples, vying to be crowned the local king of the best barbecue.

To read the full report, speed over to Phoenixville Dish where I detail all six dishes that easily made this competition a success.
