Kosher BBQ competition is a hit among Jews—and some Muslims, too
by Martin Rosenberg
If there's anything that can bring the Jews of Tennessee together, it would be barbecue.
This past weekend, the 23rd annual Kosher BBQ Contest and Festival drew thousands of Jews from Tennessee and around the country.
It attracted a group of Muslims, too. Turns out they're not bad at cooking kosher brisket: The Memphis Islamic Center's team, the "Halal Smokers," won a third-place award for their brisket entry.
The commingling of Jews and Muslims among tables heaped with baked beans, hamburgers and ribs provided a counterpoint to anti-Muslim protests in Murfreesboro, Tenn., and death threats aimed recently at mosques elsewhere in this state.
