Went to a local cook off sponsored by http://www.chautauquawinery.com/.
No pros were allowed so K-Dog (Raptor) sent in the talented and well trained back up team.
His lovely wife Lorie Ann and the Cheese-Dog..(our own Cheesy)
Tight rules...nothing done offsite...brines or rubs etc.
We went with the family and I shot the bull with the Dogs and the family toured the place and drank some free wine.
The local fire dept was BBQing food to sell.
Mrs K-Dog and her kin getting the chicken ready to turn in.
Cheese-dog and his lovely GF...
Cheese-Dogs chicken and ribs.
K-Dog keeping the crew moving and doing a quality check.
We didn't hang around long enough to see or try the ribs or hear the judging.
K-Dog just called and told me the scores!!
Lori Ann got first place chicken,second place ribs and runner up to Grand Champion!!!!
Cheese-Dog got first ribs,fourth chicken and Grand Champion!!!!!
There were at least 20 teams there so this is a major accomplishment and I am very proud of my neighbors.
Not only that..they also happen to be part of the SMF family.
Have a great day!!
