"Every chance that we can get to get out here and have people have a good time, get people decent food — good food — it's fantastic," said Danny Robert. "That's what we like doing. We like getting together, throwing stuff on the smoker, making delicious food and letting people experience that. It's a great time."

Proceeds from the festival go to the Madison Rotary Club.
