Winterhaven, Florida (FBA) 2/8 - 2/9

Anyone going?

I'll be there, if you come out, stop by and say hi. Unless it is right around turn in time, I'll be more than happy to sit, have a drink, and BS for a bit.....if after turn in, you are welcome to eat anything that hasn't gone to the judges.

I am easy to big motorhome, no fancy trailer, just a guy with a cooker and an EZ up.

Supposedly I will be right next to Jacks Old South (Myron Mixon - multi MIM champ).......if you found them.....then you find me.

Well, when it was all said and done I wound up 8th in ribs out of 44 teams. Middle of the pack on chicken and brisket. Now pork.........pork hurt me.......43 out of 44. I guess it is back the to the drawing board on pork. My scores improved on the other 3 catogories so overall I feel like I am moving in the right direction.

Other than being sick all weekend, I had a good time. Most of my drinking was confined to a Nyquill bottle. PDT_Armataz_01_33.gif
