Saturday was the perfect day
for a barbecue competition. The skies were a bit cloudy and the
temperatures a wee bit cool. It made for the perfect day to walk the
streets of Lincoln, absorb the wonderful smells of smoked meats on a
grill, and indulge in several samples.
The second annual Honest Abe's Barbeque Cook-off wrapped up around 3

who sampled dishes of chicken, spare ribs, fresh pork side and
Boston butt. Awards were given for second, first and grand champion
overall, plus there was a people's choice award.
