Nothing says America quite like smoking a pork butt and flying Old Glory.
The sport of professional barbecue is extremely American and family oriented, said pitmaster Jeff Petkevicius.
So you can imagine Jeffs extreme displeasure when organizers of an Alabama barbecue competition ordered him along with other competitors to take down the American flags hanging from their barbecue trailers.

I agree. They should all be flying the Stars and Bars along with the Gadsden .
This is a misleading post. Reading the article, it ends with an Emily Latella moment.
A butt-kicking is in order. BTT
Tell them to go eff themselves.
This is crap. Event organizers were afraid somebody would have the Confederate Flag, so they pre-emptively told everyone with a flag to take it down because it violated a town ordinance (they told a falsehood). Liars, is all.
Read the article. Headline is misleading.
The event organizer misread a city ordinance and told them to take down all flags and signage.
Than they came back and said “oops.” It’s all ok.
None of it singled out the American flag.
Much ado about nothing.
Actually, after seeing what Obama and the courts and the libs have done to this country in the last six years, I’m thinking of swapping “Old Glory” for “Dont Tread On Me.”
I can’t remember the last time I had really good BarBQ.
I dunno if there is such a thing as Halal pork ribs, though.
No one from the city advised or asked anyone to take down flags of any type, Mayor Dane Haygood told me. We proudly and boldly display American flags and we encourage everyone in the community to do the same.
It turns out the order to remove the flags came from the tour director of the Kansas City Barbecue Society.
As a measure of precaution, we asked everyone to take down any kind of signs or any kind of flags that were being displayed, spokesman Mike McCloud told me. It turned out that some of those happened to be American flags.
Imagine that, people in America flying American flags. Who could have guessed?
Okay ... fly ISIS flags ... see how that flies ....
I really like Jim & Nicks Bar-B-Que. However, last year, the majority owner of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que formed a business partnership with Jim & Nicks. The majority owner was none other than billionaire George Soros. My goto BBQ on Friday night is the Full Moon for their southern BBQ and half-moon cookies.
” Event organizers were afraid somebody would have the Confederate Flag”
Bingo. And in Al and GA its not a frivolous fear. LOL!
The word NO leaps to mind....take down your flag.........NO, The worst they can do is kick you out and I’d have wanted to leave anyway.
LOL! You've really dated yourself!
Geez... what’s a greater risk these days, barbecuing pork or barbecuing in proximity of the US Flag?
There were six or eight of us that had flags flying, he told me. He went to each camp and told them to take the flag down and everybody did.
That’s our problem in a nutshell - they all complied. No one, not a single person, will stand up and say “F you, I REFUSE”.
We permit this assault on God, our flag, our country and ourselves - with never a whimper. We can blame Boehner and McConnell for caving in,; but they only represent us.
Would we do anything different?
