One of the contestants said he was happy that there was finally a competition like this in Madison.

“Every chance that we can go out here and people have a good time, give people decent food, good food, that’s fantastic,” said Danny Robert. “That’s what we love to do. We love to get together, throw smoker stuff, cook delicious food and let people experience it. It’s a good time.”
