Anybody Going To KCBS Comp in Cleveland Tn ? (results are in)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
July 25-26.. I'll be there in the amateur division... just going to have fun.. don't have a clue how to make up the turn in box... so nothing is expected... that way there will be no disappointment... hope to somebody from SMF there....

here's the info... http://foothillscountryfair.webs.com/



Results are in !!!!!! TEAM NAME - "Sloppy'z Good BBQ"

I had a blast doing my first REAL competition... learned a few things.. seen a few things... tried a few things... entered almost everything (except dessert) ... Didn't finish last in anything ...

Ended up 18th (overall) out of 21 teams (Amateurs,Backyard).... Sausage was my best category (consisting of Pro's and Backyarder's together, 23rd out of 40 entries) ... Sponsor , "Wampler's" , donated sausage to anybody wanting to enter a dish (using their product)... I was thinking it was gonna be LINK sausage... so pork shotz was on my to do list for both, sausage and dessert categories, imagine my surprise when they handed me ground sausage.... only 4 hrs until turn in... hhhmmmmm ... now what do I make with it...


A Breakfast Fatty





Thinking I should have layered the slice's so the first thing seen when turn-in box is opened is



Here's the result's page... Amateurs are towards the bottom of the page...

The Set Up...







Also had a cabinet style propane turned into charcoal smoker there too (no pics)...

the Mini and the Keg hummed right along where I set them... the cabinet had me chasing temps all day....

a few more pics...

this was looking down the hill towards the arena's where all action took place



this was looking up the hill.. it's a place for therapeutic therapy ... they have disabled vets and handicapped kids come in and use horses for therapy... it was really pretty cool




I was going to take the same pictures after everybody got there but my battery died in my camera and I forgot to take charger ...

Nice venue for an event!

 

Good thinking on the Sausage Fatty, looks amazing! Cheese and potato in there? And yea i would have arranged the pieces with all that goodness facing up to show off the layers of flavor and that nice smoke ring, plus you had the space in the box.

 

How'd you like the added pressure of Garnish? I hated that compared to the FBA comps i've done.

 

 

They didnt say anything about using a propane smoker?

 

So have you got the Competition Bug now? We'll be at FineSwine in OCT and Pigfest in JAN

Thanks Guys....

Doug.. yes it was a breakfast fatty (potatoes,onions,garlic,eggs, and cheese)... as far as garnish goes... it sucks trying to keep it straight while piling stuff on it... plus I didn't buy enough and had to ration it (to thin) ... It 's an old propane converted to charcoal smoker... last time we were up there (2 years ago) I tore the gas parts out of his smoker and made it into charcoal only smoker... it worked great then but has been used hard since then and I had to chase temps on it all day long

as far as the comp bug goes... it was fun (and expensive)... Oct. is a lil too close to the Gathering... Jan. might could be doable... where is that one at ??
