Feast on finger-licking barbecue in Cleveland
Children and adults compete at Hillbilly Hog BBQ Throwdown
Mackenzie McCarty of Warminster, Pa., competed in last year’s Hillbilly Hog BBQ Throwdown in Cleveland. She is seen with her Cabbage Patch Kid, which is wearing a Halloween costume. Along with professional grill masters, children may test their culinary skills in their own contest this Saturday.
Eleven-year-old Mackenzie McCarty of Warminster, Pa., returns to BabyLand General Hospital in the North Georgia Mountains to compete in the Kids Q at the Hillbilly Hog BBQ Throwdown and Fall Leaf Festival, a Kansas City Barbeque Society-sanctioned event. At age 9, the competitive student and first-time BabyLand visitor wanted to win one of the Kids Q Prizes, a BabyLand Exclusive Cabbage Patch Kid in a chef’s hat and apron. Her dad, Ryan, has been the “guinea pig” for the different barbecue recipes for two years.
