Nothing says America quite like smoking a pork butt and flying Old Glory.

“The sport of professional barbecue is extremely American and family oriented,” said pitmaster Jeff Petkevicius.

So you can imagine Jeff’s extreme displeasure when organizers of an Alabama barbecue competition ordered him—along with other competitors—to take down the American flags hanging from their barbecue trailers.

It happened Feb. 27 at the Sam’s Club National BBQ Competition in Daphne, Alabama, sponsored by the Kansas City Barbecue Society. 

Jeff is the founder of “Give it to God” competition barbecue—a professional barbecue team that smokes meat and shares the love of Jesus. Both are noble missions.

Last Friday Jeff rolled into town with his barbecue trailer and promptly hoisted Old Glory. Not too long after, one of the organizers of the event told Jeff to take down the flag.

  1. What have we as a nation come too when it is NOT POLITICALLY CORRECT to fly an AMERICAN flag??? Seriously, what is this saying about our country, one we are to be proud of but not one we can freely express our love for… This ticks me off on so many levels! Grrrrr….
