    Injected Friday night, on the smoke today at 1330. It's a brisket only gag, but my first comp either way... Shoulder surgery be damned!, I'm pulling an all-nighter with a 15 lb'er.

    Wish me luck fellas.. I'm launching the Pit 4 Brains BBQ Team as of Sunday High Noon at the comp...

    I have a good idea of what this is going to take from you as I just had shoulder surgery a week and a half ago. Look forward to hearing how everything goes, good luck !!!

     No, not really. It's a local gathering of AZBarbeque.com folks. I't's being hosted by a Valley Q joint and some other local sponsors. Kinda like a run-what-ya-brung event instead of the Winter Nationals NHRA drag race..
     I'll post up as much as possible..

    I'm native to Mesa and have been a weather bug since I was knee high. This is a tough place to forcast rain during the monsoon. The other night we got squat for rain and i watched it fall on my moms house in NE mesa for the whole evening. Ya never know where the flows are gonna be..

    yup... [​IMG]

    I don't care.. I've kept campfires alive on the rim when the slickers all got douched out. I have some blockage and a towell ready for any rain.. I'll explain later in a pm.
