After The BBQ Competition, Into Garbage?
The other night there was a show on cable about a BBQ competition for serious people. I was surprised to learn there are some people whose day job is to travel to these competitions to win the prize money.
Typically, contestants smoked a whole pig, chicken thighs, some sort of pulled pork (shoulder or butt), and occasionally a brisket. The judges only get a small box of the best part of each meal.
Since each contestant is left with a lot of food, what happens to all the leftovers? Is it given or sold to the general public that may show up? I'm thinking most of it, due to volume, ends up in the dumpster.
Thanks for any insight.
