Athens-based LawLers competing for BBQ sauce title

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Tourism Department's barbecue sauce championship will be decided Saturday in Birmingham.

The three media judges will sample sauces that won regional competitions. Contest coordinator Brian Jones says the sauces making it to the championship round are from LawLers in Athens, Costas in Birmingham, Phil's BBQ in Eufaula, and Viper in Fairhope. Jones said Southern travelers love barbecue, and they like to take bottles of sauce home with them when they visit Alabama.

The BBQ Sauce-Off Championship starts at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Pepper Place Market on Birmingham's Southside.
