This weekend (tomorrow) we'll be competing in our first local competiton! This is a non-fanctioned FBA cook off and should be fun. They are having a people's choice brisket as well. If your in and around the area stop in and see us. Entry is free!

 

I"ll post pictures live if there is time and more after :) Wish us luck!

Well we (@jtstitzel and I) had a good time and won 1st place in brisket!  The competition was interesting, they had some fairly early turn in times and didn't let us start smoking till Midnight...so we had less then 12 hours to smoke our butts and briskets. Unfortunately our pork didn't turn out to tender because of time and a crucial mistake on my park off putting it in the big smoker in the cold spot, sleep deprivation at its finest haha!

 

But we tried some new methods and i'm happy with the results. I'm still waiting for the over all scores. But here are some pictures, and more on the way. This is the first 1st place call we've gotten!

 

Got the smoker in place...parked on a hill which i later learned was a bad idea (all the pan juices went to one side and didnt cook even)

 

The competition

 

Waiting till midnight so fried up some wangs!

 

Also fried up some Biscuits, JT's idea and they were delicious 

 

Finally! Smokers going

 

 

Morning rolls around and ribs and everything else on the smoker

 

 

 

Smoked some of the brisket trimmings! mmmmm beef candy

 

 

JT did some test runs with different combinations of sauce and brine on extra chicken thighs

 

Ribs came out pretty darn good...liking my new rub recipe

 

First place call on brisket! nice metal etched award also
