Amazon' Blazin' Lebbanon Tenn - Page 2

post #21 of 36
just got home & man was it hot. got to meet bud & tonto, sampled their fine ribs & brisket. great people they are. lots of nice rigs & heavy hitters but i think our smf reps did well (if i was judging). when we left it was around 100f & they were still alive- here's proof.
here's a pic of a serious pig mobile.
now i gotta get the pit lit again( shut the fire down & went to cheer our smf'rs wheni found out wifey got the night off).. and try to talk her into a lang for x-mas...... PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Thank you for the pictures! I'm glad everyone stayed cool enough to not get sick. I look forward to the day when I can attend one of those events. Thank you for being there on behalf of all of us, too!

The Smokin' Scotsmen are finally back from the edges of hades......121 in the sun!

What an incredible competition. The setting is the Wilson county fairgrounds in Lebanon Tennessee (near Nashville). This fair is rated number one in the country virtually every year. The Amazon Blazin is over 10 years and going. 60 teams from Floriday to Texas to Minnesota to all over the South (oh, and also from good old Ada Michigan).


We didn't walk.......but we came in 36 out of 60 and are fairly proud of a consistent effort in our second outing. Darned ribs are still my downfall....guess they did not like the grassy sauce!

Good jobs Guys! We're proud of you! I read somewhere you guys competed against the best of the best there! Learning the tricks of the presentation trade are the thing I guess. Not just good smoking!

Congrats, you done goodPDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

hey bud- the ribs worked for me.. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif i was inspired. so i didsunday cook in 110 here- phew it's hot.
post #29 of 36
Yep, there were some heavy hitters there. Anyone who reads The Bullsheet recognizes some familiar teams.
I'd keep doing that rib salad thing, it's bound to catch on sooner or later. icon_mrgreen.gificon_cool.gifPDT_Armataz_01_18.gif
Cuts presentation prep time to nothing.

Debi, it's been a crazy summer. As we speak, we are half way to long Island to see our kids and grand baby. We wish we had more time to relax and communicate on line. Thanks to Gypsy and your beautiful family for coming out in the crazy heat - we enjoyed meeting you all. Bill, thanks for your encouragement.

Bubba and the Smokin' team will be in another comp in mid September. Winter will be a great time to get it all back together!

We miss you all too.

bud and tonto
