Pinto Bean & BBQ Cook-Off for Kleberg County Centennial
KLEBERG COUNTY (Kiii News) -
Kleberg County is celebrating its 100-year anniversary this weekend, and a big part of that celebration is a Pinto Bean and Barbecue Cook-Off.
"Do you guys smell that as you're getting closer?" said Lt. Commander Rudy Madrid of the U.S. Navy. "You can smell victory, and we haven't even started cooking yet."
There are between 40-45 teams taking part in the contest, which will be held on the grounds of the J.K. Northway Expo Center Grounds. Pinto beans, fajitas, chicken, ribs, brisket -- the teams are all competing for bragging rights on whose is the best.
The event is free and open to the public, and there will also be live music.
