With only hours left to vote, Cumberland's Gotta Q BBQ, which has been leading the national voting for the past two weeks, has been pushed back into second place by a mere 235 votes as voting for the Best BBQ Food Truck in the U.S. enters its final hours. 

The Mendon Road eatery has placed high in the top ten in recent years and has set it sights on the top position this year.  They were well on their way to being number one until a late surge by CockADoodleMoo in Raleigh, N.C. pushed that firm past the local entry.

Local citizens are urged to make their one vote now to bring Gotta Q back into the lead before the polls close tonight at midnight.  Links to the voting are on the Gotta Q Face Book page, and below.
