Posted by Erni Walker Oct 20, 2014

This is what it looks like to smoke 12 racks of ribs, 2 pork butts, and cook a bunch of hot links, collard greens, mac n' cheese, and banana pudding for 33 people in less than 24 hours. Clean-up included.

Meat Weekend Winner

Well, we did it. We put a lot of people on a bus and we took them to BBQ. 8 restaurants in 2 days did not kill anyone, but it did manage to take down a few good soldiers for the rest of the evening.

Meat Weekend was a flurry of giant bus, brisket, ribs, shouting, pinatas, and FUN. Somewhere in the midst of the meat haze, attendees even managed to vote for their favorites. We're proud to announce the winner of the first-ever Meat Weekend Best of L.A. BBQ Award: Hambone's Bar & Grill!

Well, you're entitled to your opinion. In fact, we'd love for you to watch the trailer (which is but a scant 4 minutes) and tell us what you think! Want to see more? Want us to shut up and go away? Cool! Tell us with the click of a button and we'll either disappear or show up at your house with BBQ. It's all in your hands...
