Ol boys with ties to Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas landed in Meridian, Texas at the National Barbecue Championships a few weeks back.

We ate like country kings during the competition and Coon-Billy Cookers was right at the top of the heap for brisket and hospitality.

Competing on the Texas barbecue circuit since 2003 the boys in the cook team have managed prestigious victories at events in places like Groves and Vidor which is how they secured an invitation to Meridian's big-deal affair.
