On Sunday I went to the Fremont BBQ Extravaganza. It was a really hot day but not as hot as the day of the Food Truck Rodeo. We were going to dress my dog, Remy as a hot dog, but then we forgot. I think he was glad we forgot.

I really liked the smoking hot, not just because it was spicy, but because it had more smokey, BBQ flavor and the spiciness added to the flavor.

There was a long line for the BBQ sandwiches. But we finally got our sandwiches. Unfortunately they were all sold out of grilled corn. But they still had the meat and some salad. Hee hee…don’t tell my mom, but I didn’t eat any salad. There were four kinds of meat, but we only bought three kinds. We got pulled pork, BBQ chicken and brisket. The fourth kind of meat was pastrami. I wish we also got the pastrami.

I liked them all. I can’t decide which one was the best. And they were probably the best BBQ I’ve ever had in my life. No offense to anyone….even better than my mom’s BBQ ribs (no offense mom).

My dog Remy really liked the pulled pork too. Pulled pork is his favorite. All because of our family friend, Kit Wah who bribed Remy with pulled pork at Lake Shasta, last year, in order to teach him to swim.

There were many teams there, competing for the BBQ competition. I got to try a few different samples. One time I got a chicken sample and when I was down to the last bite, I drenched the entire piece in hot sauce and popped it in my mouth. It tasted amazing.20130602_142022-00120130602_144301-001

There was also a bagel toss competition from Seattle Bagel Bakery. You had to toss the bagels onto a ring. It was very difficult. I almost made it on the last try. But we got sample bagels and they were really delicious and loaded with flavor. I got blueberry and my brother got a pizza flavor. I am still dreaming about those bagels now! Even Remy who doesn’t usually like any carbs, loved the bagels.

There was an amazing brass band called Tuba Luba. With some of the most amazing music I have ever heard. It was really upbeat and they sounded great. They are playing again at the Fremont Fair on June 23rd. I want to go to listen to them again.
