I wonder if the team member are starting to get a little butterflied in the stomach yet abt their first comp....

It will be here and gone before they know it. I suppose they have been a little busy with the new smoker and getting the bugs worked out to worry about us and keeping us up to date.... Oh well, one day they will remember us..... icon_sad.gificon_sad.gificon_sad.gif

I know you are busy with all that is going on... but I just had to throw a jab your way while I could.

I am sure you are getting a little antsy for the upcoming get together as well as the comp., but you will be fine. Just remember, go have fun, go and meet everyone, and just get your feet wet. You will be fine.

Go show them how the newbies do it..... PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Glad you made it home safe and sound Bubba. Bet were all gonna sleep good tonight!!!!PDT_Armataz_01_22.gif

Funny how different camera's show different colors. For instance here is a pic of the chicken I took with my camera and it doesn't look quite as dark as it does with yours....All in all I agree with you, learned a few things with the timing and I think we can solve the "skin issue".....will dream on it tonightbiggrin.gif Also definitley need to buy more greens.
