RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) – The grills were fired up in Ridgeland Saturday for Hamstock 2010.
The barbeque and music festival was held in Ridgeland's Jackson Street District.
It offered ten hours of cooked pork, live bands and family fun.
Fourteen teams competed, putting their top secret recipes to the test.
The MBN sanctioned barbeque cook off for pros and amateurs offers more than $4,000.00 in cash prizes.
One team, the Red Hot Smokers, is from Olive Branch.
"We all compete. Everybody cooks a hog shoulder or rib. Today we just did shoulders and ribs and your goal is to get to finals. So we made finals in shoulders today, and then we made finals in ribs today. We had a good day," said Wayne Booth of the Red Hot Smokers.
The event was free and all proceeds benefit Adams Project Incorporated.
Eight year old Adam Malone of Ridgeland suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and efforts are underway to build an all access playground at Ridgeland's park.
