Memphis In May 2012–Fatback Photo Essay

A very special group of friends, chefs, writers, and pitmasters gathered, along with hundreds of other BBQ teams to compete in the 2012 Memphis in May BBQ competition.  The Fatback Collective returned for their second year in a row to set up “camp” (affectionately known as “Camp Fatback”) on the banks of the Mississippi River.  The team smoked (pork and lamb, that is), cooked, drank, and shared ideas with each other and guests over the entire weekend while attempting to present the judges with the best tasting barbecue sourced from a sustainable farm in an honest way.  The team accomplished that and much more as their relationships strengthened and their commitment to flavor and sustainable farming increased.

Thank you Fatback Collective for the good work and the great times!
