EdGashEnlandBBQA belated shout out to Ed Gash from Swindon, England! Ed has stopped by Town Topic each of the past three years while he’s here to compete in the American Royal BBQ. He and his team finished 7th in the brisket category in 2013, and 3rd in the chicken category in 2012 – an incredibly difficult feat considering that thousands compete in the competition. BBQ is gaining popularity in England thanks to people like Ed. Can’t wait to see you next fall, Ed! Check out his team at
