The comp was a HUGE success! With over 450 competitors, these comps just keep on growing. Kyle and Joey grilled up over 350 patties, 100 hot dogs and we had snacks galore. Thanks to everyone who came out - we even raised $100 for the Access Fund from the Dyno for Dollars comp! For photos from the comp, please visit the album on our Facebook Page.
