I was thinkin the same Joe!
ahh, just kidding, Congrats to some really good rib cooks. I tried my best to beat them, but they was too much for the rest of us.
I didn't get to try Bubbas ribs, but I did get a couple of rich's, they were awesome fore sure, and did get to taste at least 3-4 other teams ribs, I think it must have been tough for the judges, they seemed to take a long time to come to their decision for just 12 teams.
Had a blast, was a great event, very nice Oct day, and the public seemed to be enjoying the event. The fact that we couldn't sell, or give away ribs was the main discussion of the day with about 90% of the folks who storpped in to visit. The smell was awesome, as we were almost straight downwind from the whole Harvest festival gathering.What a nice little town, and great place for the event. The city did a pretty good job with the BBQ comp, I'm sure some of the folks are gonna complain to the city council about the lack of available ribs for tasting.Lotsa familiar faces competing.Always a great time with these folks. Everyone helping others and having alot of fun kidding around with each other.
Just getting home here at 3 pm sunday from the weekend away , had a blast in bridgeport last night. I rewarmed all the leftover ribs on the Lang, and we had a dozen or so guests join us at our friends house, then off to a Haunted forest after adult beverages( way fun and a lil spooky for the girls), then off to a local watering hole,Drakes Bar in bridgeport, till early morning, then off to sleep,I was ready for a rest by 2 am for sure.
I hope to do it again next year, I'll be tryin harder through the winter to get a good rib program together.
