Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — Let me tell you, Shreveport and Caddo Parish fire fighters and law enforcement can barbecue. That said, it's only fitting that there be a competition to see who out of all of them is the best at barbecue.
That's where the Heroes Barbecue comes in. 7 years ago, the North Shreveport Business Alliance decided to hold the event, which raised money for the Shreveport Police Department, Caddo Sheriff's Office, Shreveport Fire Department, and Caddo Fire Districts.
Of course, every team was sure they were going to win, from Hot Pursuit, to Kicking Ash, not to mention all the others.
According to Shreveport Police Department's Lt. Hans Hopkins, smoke is his secret, comparing it to George Forman fighting Muhammad Ali. Others said time and patience.
All of the barbecue was delicious, so it's hard to argue with their secrets, even though they're not so secret anymore.
