The hottest event in the industry


It's 9:30 at night and still something like 93 degrees here in the heartland. Or, as Carolyn Cole put it, "just throw the hog on the pavement and watch it so it doesn't burn" hot.

Official numbers aren't in yet, but if the rowdy crowd at tonight's famed hog roast (sorry, I stuck with the chicken) is any indication, there's a good turnout for this year's event. I did learn they'd probably given out about 800 bottles of water in 2 hours tonight.

A full slate of events for Tuesday, starting at 8 am (gulp) with the keynote speaker.
