BBQ & Braids? You Better Believe It!

When you think of barbecue, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Baby back ribs? Smoked brisket? Braids? If you said braids, you're not alone. Because that was our first thought too. I mean, what pairs better with pulled pork and sunshine than a classy braid (like a rope or milkmaid braid)? Absolutely nothing!

That's why we invaded Sea Terrace Park in early October for the Dana Point State BBQ Championships, the largest barbecue competition on the west coast, to offer our skilled hair braiding services!

Relive This 4th Annual BBQ Event

The Dana Point State BBQ Championships is an annual competition sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, which is a big, big deal in the world of BBQ. Accordingly, the event draws over 100 top teams from several states throughout the western U.S. This prestige also draws significant media coverage (from the Orange County Register), as well as blogger recaps (from Slap Yo' Daddy BBQ, one of the competing teams).
