I am entering my first competition. It is the South Sound BBQ Festival here in Washington State. I will be cooking Brisket, BabyBacks, Chicken thighs, Seafood and the open category (smoked meatloaf). I will be using my MES40 and propane Smoker Vault. I will be posting pictures throughout the event so keep an eye out for one stressed out smoker and the guy using it ;)
My 1st Competition starts tomorrow

As many of you know, today was my first ever BBQ Competition. I would like to start off with a BIG thank you, to my lovely wife for telling me that I should enter this and pushing me when I wasnt sure about entering.Today with her help and support, I am glad to announce that I placed in 4 of the 5 categories.in Chicken I came in 3rd place. In Brisket I came in 3rd place. In BabyBack Ribs I came in 1st place and in Seafood I came in 1st place. Because of this I am now the 2015 BackYard Joe GRAND CHAMPION. I have many pictures that I will put up here, but for tonight its a shower and bed.
This is my brisket entry. I love the smoke ring😏 I got in my electric smoker. That was very simple and I'm sure I will use it again. I will also raise the brisket higher so it doesn't look like it's sinking next time too.
