Just got back from Pork and Hops in Grand Junction Colorado.
It was a very well run event and the staff did an excellent job in putting the event on for everyone.
I did not do well in any of the normal meat catagories and am pretty sure I won't ever. So I had a good time since I was really just go around meeting people and finding out what they were doing and then back to tending my cooker and getting the stuff ready to turn in on time.
Got everything in on time.
In the add on category Anything Butt I did the salmon again. Ended up second in the winner take all event. Missed first by 1.3 points. Had one judge that did not like fish... have lots of judges with 9 9 9 which was nice to see. But another team had more nines. It was good to see nice scores on the salmon.
They also had a desert category. Did fifth place in that with my weber kettle whiskey cake.
It was a good time as usual and a lot of fun to meet people I have not seen since HavaBarBQ.
I took some pictures, I will post them on the thread later.
