Where the Secret Ingredients are Blow-By and Ptomaine

There are only two rules in this BBQ competition: The heat’s gotta come from a car engine, and try not to poison the judges. (Anyone can enter: any dish, any style, any engine. Put it on the Judges’ Table by 6pm, and it’s in. Still confused? Yak at us here.)
