TV show to cover Blue Ridge BBQ Festival

TRYON — The Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival will host the cast and crew of the TV show BBQ Pitmasters during the festival at Harmon Field in Tryon June 14-15.

Festival founder Jim Tabb, whose daughter Lee Ann Whippen has frequently appeared on the show, was instrumental in getting "Pitmasters" to come to Tryon. "I've wanted this for a long time," Tabb said. "The show has a great following, and it will bring even more national attention to our area."

The Blue Ridge BBQ & Music Festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Chairman Chuck Britton said, "What a fitting way to add to the fun and excitement of this special birthday year."
