So i did a practice run this past weekend w/ 1 of my buddies... did 3 racks of BBs 2-2-1 style & finished them wet w/ 3 types of homemade BBQ Sauces... We narrowed it down to a KC style sauce

 

We also did a whole chicken and some different styles of veggies for the other 2 categories... we have the chicken down and are going to tweak our vegetarian dish a bit... I haven't had much to look forward to lately so i am pretty excited to be participating in my first competition... I hope to at least place in the amateur division... will deff be taking pics that day for a qview and will let you know how we do... wish us luck!

Hi Steve,

 

My team was at the rib cook off yesterday and I tried to find you to say hello to a fellow SMF person!   It got so hectic/busy I wasn't able to make the rounds to every table though.  Which team were you?

Hey man, that's Awesome! We were Team GSD.... It was a blast for our first comp! Sorry it has taken me so long to respond, just been crazy busy at work and that's when i get most of my SMF time... I have pics i have been meaning to upload... i am going to try and upload them on Monday or Tuesday of next week depending on how busy we are... We didn't win, but the experience was enough to motivate me for next year... We got a ton of compliments so that at least felt good... It was all in all a really fun day... Perhaps we will run into each other at next years comp... or beforehand...

That sounds like a blast.  And it might be corny, but compliments do go a long way.

We all had a great time... and to make the day better a local brewer was there to keep our energy high... I think it is worth doing a comp... its just something different and fun... its also not bad in the weeks approaching doing some "practice runs" LOL (any excuse to smoke right?)
