But JNN isn't satisfied with just serving their own brand of 'cue; they've activated Commissioner Gordon's Pig Signal to call together the all-stars of the Fatback Collective Competitive BBQ Team to help serve the masses. The team members include nationally noted pitmasters like Rodney Scott, Sam Jones and our own Pat Martin, as well as James Beard Award-winning chefs like John Currence and many other fabulous chefs like Raleigh's Ashley Christensen. Normally this team comes together to cook at competitions or charity events, but Bonnaroo 2013 will actually offer an opportunity to purchase their wares, as each chef prepares his or her specialty. Expect whole-hog from Messrs. Scott and Jones and brisket from Pat Martin. Other members of the Collective will prepare side dishes, desserts and other main dishes for purchase, with proceeds from all food sales going to the charities of the individual chef/members of the group.
To celebrate the inclusion of Jim 'N Nick's and the Fatback Collective, the team is giving away several pairs of full passes to Bonnaroo, and as locals, Nashvillians have extra chances to win. First of all, there is a national JNN contest you can enter at their national Facebook site by sharing photos of your favorite Jim 'N Nick's moment or memory. The contest runs until May 31, so you still have time to make a new memory to photograph if you don't already have one on Instagram.
But here's the cool part, since there are three JNN locations in the Middle Tennessee area, and we Nashvillagers are considered the most likely to actually be able to use these passes on short notice, Jim 'N Nick's is also giving away another set of tickets at the Nashville-area stores' collective Facebook page here.
And in even better news for your odds to win, keep an eye on this space and we might just have another chance for you to win tickets to Bonnaroo. There's no better place than Bites for all your Bonnaroo food news, so stay tuned.
