Those words are exactly what smacked across our lips when reading about the inaugural Arizona Barbecue Festival. The two-day shindig kicks off with a V.I.P. event that gets foodies an up-close and personal gander at thirteen local chefs such as Beau MacMillan, Eddie Matney, and Tracy Dempsey throwing down some serious cue. The fest continues Saturday, April 10, where you can pony up a ten spot and eat your ass off as well as participate in grilling seminars, whiskey tastings, and a Texas Hold Em poker tournament.
