First Ever Ray Price Butt Pickin’ Contest a Huge Success!

Kris Weiss | Raleigh, NC

When people in the south hear that there’s a Butt Pickin’ Contest they know that it can only mean one thing; there’s going to be a large crowd for a Boston Butt Cook-Off. Ray Price Harley-Davidson dared to switch things up with this event. Having hosted Whole Hog BBQ, Brunswick Stew and Buffalo Wing competitions for about a decade, they wanted to change things up a bit. With the help of their friend Jerry Hart a.k.a Ole Timer, President of the BBQ Brothers, owner of Ole Time Barbecue and the biggest advocate and fundraiser for The Ride for Kids, they went “off menu” with this cook-off and had one of the largest participants of cookers and attendance in dealership history. With 13 teams, cooking eight Boston Butts each, there was plenty to go around for the large crowd that paid $5 a piece to sample and eat all they wanted. The entire donation, totaling over $3000, went directly to the Ride for Kids/Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. And add $500 to that total thanks to the winning team, The Enforcers, for donating their First Place winnings back to the charity. Jerry Hart was nearly speechless as he thanked them and everyone for their generosity. Second Place and $250 went to Backdraft BBQ, Third Place and $100 went to Pirates B-Arrgh-B-Que and the always coveted Peoples Choice Award went to Buff’s BBQ.

The rest of the day included great music from Krystal Blade, fantastic ice cream from Masterpiece Ice Cream Company, a Private Owner Bike Sale, and a Parts Swap Meet. The Rex Bloodmobile was on site and collected 37 lifesaving units of Blood. And everyone who wore green got to spin the Nitro Prize Wheel for great prizes!

The weather was one of the most helpful ingredients for such a successful day as Jean Price referred to in her remarks to the crowd from the stage. She said, “If Ray were here, he would have been so happy.” Jean’s husband and the dealership’s namesake, Ray Price, passed away peacefully in his sleep on December 16th, 2015. His legacy lives on as the folks at Ray Price Harley-Davidson have lots of major events scheduled throughout the year.
