    And I ain't gonna tell! [​IMG] I'll let the Smokin Scottsmen explain. Had a great time, as did all. It was a great pleasure meeting Tonto, Bud, Cheech, Wateryeyes, and BBQ Bubba. Cheech and Wateryeyes have the pics (forgot the pic taking machine). They will post them. Everyone is hoping to attend the comp at Silver Lake in Sept. And for the SMF Michigan members who couldn't attend today, hope to meet ya at Silver Lake.

    Gang, I'm glad with all the "ribbing" and "dragging through the dirt" that the Smokin Scotsmen team did so well. That's awesome.

    I hear there were a few stories though... can't wait to hear all about em.

    CONGRATULATIONS to the Smokin Scotsmen Team... Next time FIRST PLACE! You guys ROCK!

    Keep Smokin

    After a couple of challenging and nerve wracking days, I know one thing for sure: comps are humbling exeriences.

    But it was also a great couple of days. Wonderful BBQ folks always offering to help the rookie team. Better yet, visits from SMF folks: Cheech brought great home made sausage and Watery Eyes and CrewDog were there with their better halves.

    I am so very proud of the Smokin' Scotsmen team: BBQ Bubba (aka Steve), Dave the pit master Larkin, and Tonto (aka General Patton!).

    The Reusults:

    44 teams
    10th place chicken
    8th place ribs
    15th place pork
    15th place brisket

    6th overall

    And the best part: I didn't drop a stinkin' thing!!
