    Everyone needs to understand that Rubstock is a nationally sanctioned professional barbecue contest. From what I know it is the only one in Northern California. That includes San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, Berkley, Sacramento all of Marin and Sonoma Counties, Roseville and Granite Bay. Little old Cameron Park has an event none of these areas have so we need to support it. Come out and enjoy. Let's support Ed from Sierra Smokehouse.
