Broad Street Brewing Co. held a Spring Fling Meat Thing on Saturday, May 14. Nine teams competed, from Reinbeck, Grundy Center, Holland, Waterloo, Jesup and Waverly.

Six community members served as judges: Sue Trunck, Erik Skovgard, Mark Thesing, Jerry Smith, Matt Sealman and Bob Watermiller.

Teams arrived around 5 a.m. and spent the day smoking meat for four categories of judging (chicken, pork, pork ribs and "anything goes").

Judging began at 4 p.m. and each entry was evaluated on taste, texture and appearance. Winners were awarded in each category and a Grand Champion was named.

Spectators were treated to free samples by the participants. Glenda Billerbeck from Indulge served a hot dog bar and pulled pork sandwiches throughout the day.

Broad Street Brewing Co. was pleased with the turn out and plans to have the Spring Fling Meat Thing become an annual event.
