FREEPORT — A hot, steamy day did not prevent 62 teams from hunching over hot pits for the barbecue cookoff at the 73rd Fishin' Fiesta at Freeport Municipal Park.

There were sweet smells all around park Saturday for the IBCA-sanctioned event with fajitas, chicken, ribs and brisket on the category list.
