During the contests, Robert Shadle felt impressed watching his son prepare and grill the meat.

“That me and this kid can do together. As you saw, he did the majority of those two whole hogs yesterday. As you saw in the pictures I sent you, that is he and I, that’s no makeup no nothing to it,” Robert Shadle said.

Competition lasts all weekend

The competition continues all weekend. On Sunday evening, Sept. 19, competitors will find out the results in an open contest awards ceremony.
