Congrats, 3 men and a butt!! - Page 2

post #21 of 50
Its probably a good thing that we were the farthest team away from the bigger grouping of teams, but closest to the bathrooms!icon_smile.gif Best part was everyone had to walk by us to go to the bathrooms.So we got alot of visitors, which was alot of fun. The visitors drank most of our beverages, I swear!wink.gif

The smokin scottsmen had a great spot set up around the "rollin retreat", man thats a sweet Motor home. Walt and Teresa were always available for comment or help, and very good hosts with a great breakfast on sat morning along with a "Q salute" and morning prayer! The camp next to them was occupied by Smokeaters BBQ, another great group of guys and very freindly. Every team was unique in some way, mostly their cookers, but their support vehichles,layout of camp, or timetables for food was all pretty interesting to me. I did alot of wondering.
The only thing that I absolutely hated about this event was......................................THE WIND!!!icon_frown.gif Man it was frustrating, and often times dangerous.We were out in the open, as far as the layout of teams went, and didn't have any big buildings near us for a wind break. Poor Mark thought the wind was gonna tear his canopy right off the trailer. At one time during the wee hours of the morning, one of the other teams portable canopy did take a short flip into another trailer, but alert compeditors grabbed it and got it safely taken down. The wind played havok with alot of us wood burners,but I know every team suffered because of it. I wonder how many judges had sand in their food confused.gif .
I will say that I am very happy with my Lang 60. The wind was challenging, but she purred right through the weekend without a problem. She held temps at 225 for 80 % of the time with winds well over 40 mph at times. The wind did ruin our chicken on the WSM program though. We couldn't get it to keep temps where we wanted, and the SnP suffered from it to, and had to resort to switching alot of stuff to the lang. It suprises me that the ribs took any ribbon, cuz we had started them in the SnP, but gave up on it with 2 hrs to go before turn in, they went into the lang, and began the rehabilitation cook!icon_idea.gif . Maybe we started a new trend Rich! really low and slow for a couple hrs, then low and faster, then an hr of chaos!biggrin.gif

Thanks Girl! Yep, I got the bug, gonna order me an RV tomorrow!eek.gif

Just kidding. Thanks for the Kudos, and really we appreciate your help and kindness. You guys really took the show, and that brisket of yours,OMG.
The bisquits and gravy and Ford's beef tenderloins for breakfast was just what I needed after an all nighter in gale force winds. You and your team are the BOMB! I like your smoker too! Sure were some nice rigs there.
Good luck at Wamac.I'm sure you guys will do fine!

I tried to post on the BBQ Breth site. I have already registered, but could only PM Mike to thank him.

post #38 of 50
Outstanding! Great job by all of you! So is it true that comp ribs place better when they aren't, "fall off the bone" tender? Looks like those have some "tug" left in them and they look mighty tasty!!!

Looks like you all had a really good time, in spite of the doggone wind. CongratsPDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

Well I thought it just came off the Lang as a snack... but it wasn't done yet...;{)
post #40 of 50
Just a bit of "tug"- let's put it this way...if ya bit into the meat and let go with your hand and shook your head...it'd come apart.
