8/21/2012 Update- Looks like Fresno won’t get to try my nasty tri-tip this year. Taste Fresno announced the event has been canceled. Details here.
Original Post- So apparently James Collier of Taste Fresno is some kind of tri-tip expert. He posted a challenge on tastefresno.com to all Fresnans to compete in this years cook-off. We’ve known James as one of Fresno’s biggest foodies but have never seen him behind a grill, unless the words George Foreman were on it or he happened to be stealing some meat off of one. Kidding. Zing!
I don’t know about you but that’s enough to get my competitive juices flowing. I’m accepting the challenge and will be competing in the cook-off this year. If you spot me at the event (I’ll be the guy holding the trophy at the end), stop by and say hello. If you’re competing this year, which I encourage you to do, good luck. You’re going to need it!
