So, time to break out the killer 'slaw recipe and the rest of your PDQ BBQ Contest Creations.

If you still need some inspiration, check out some our all-time favorite BBQ side dishes:
- Mediterranean Summer Salad
- Basic Island Coleslaw
- Grilled Peaches

And let us not forget the music and dancing robots!

The Amish are the penultimate DIY-ers. Teach one of them how to install Linux on their plows and they'll have my undying respect.

They are crafty, I've seen an Amish combine with metal wheels, actually two rims, one is smaller and connected to the axle, and the other is bigger and is attached by springs connected from the smaller rim to the bigger rim. Amish Suspension.
