    Well doing my first competition for my sister's church.

    They are having a people's choice award, cooking chicken and ribs. The church will supply the meat and the cookers (55 gallon barrels cut in half then one half made into a lid)

    Does any one have any suggestions for how to make the right stuff for a peoples choice competition?

    You're already doing it Cheech. You just gotta show up and do your thing buster. Take your favorite rub and you're off to a winning start.

    Cheech, brine the chicken and smoke it all. Load the charcoal on one end and meat on the other end. Take your probe and ET-73 (I'm sure you have one) to check temps.

    'nough said.... [​IMG] Good Luck!

    yes it does sound a bit like grilling but like it has been mention i will place the meat on onside and the heat on the other

    some of the guys competing are nervous because my brother in law is bringing in a ringer I just wish I knew who this ringer is

    Ok so I found out it was not a "real competition".

    They told me after the contest was half started that they will be judging on presentation (Like having a nice place setting for the judges to sample the food) Prior to the contest they said that it would not be on presentation [​IMG]

    The first and second place team boiled their ribs!
    I refuse to boil my ribs.

    But it was a good time and my ribs and chicken tasted great. I found a person that has made ribs before and that helped a ton. (He knew what he was doing)

    We had 15 racks of ribs and around 50 pieces of chicken and enough room to cook 4 ribs and 6 chickens.

    I hope to have pictures later.

    Cheech,

    Sounds like you had a good time and am very proud that you stuck to the NBR credo (no boiled ribs).

    See you at Silver Lake.

    It was a festival type of get together as an outreach event.

    They had remote controlled airplanes, square dancing, a clown, bounce things for the kids, popcorn, cotton candy, a band, etc

    It was fun but with out rules that are stuck to it was a bit disappointing.
