SALISBURY - Fifty-five teams from seven states will go brisket to brisket this weekend at the second annual Biker, Blues & BBQ Rally at Tilley Harley-Davidson.
A Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned cookoff, the three-day event offers food, music, motorcycles and family fun for free.
Organizers anticipate the rally will become one of the largest Kansas City Barbecue Society events in the southeastern United States.
N.C. Gov. Bev Perdue has proclaimed the event a state championship.
Entertainment and events will include:
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 1942 Harley-Davidson WLA WWII Recon Scout display
6 to 11 p.m. Pre-Event Party
9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Recon Scout display
