    Sorry for the delay in reporting in.....we didn't get back until late last night. Had to take Tonto to the emergency clinic on the way back. She had Siatic nerve pain in her knee and leg to the point she could barely walk plus, due to the incredible heat, an imbalance in her electrolites and potassium levels. 121 degress in the sun and 111 in the shade is enough to do things like that!!!

    60 teams and half that you all have probably heard of. Like Gypsy said, heavy hitters with real expensive and exotic rigs. None the less, the rookie "flying" nee Smokin' Scotsmen were consistent and came in 36 (Just one spot below Dr. BBQ, Ray Lampe).

    We got to meet Gypsy, his lovely wife and the cutest little 10 week old Amy. Thanks for chancing the incredible heat.

    More details later...................

    Thanks, you all.

    Tonto has been taking her meds and feels better. She is also completly
    out of the heat here in good old west Michigan.

    Looking forward to the next comp in Silver Lake Michigan. We get key team member Steve, aka, Bubba BBQ back. We got some ideas on the ribs and brisket. Life is a journey..............

    Wow, that's alot of heat... plus all the heat generated by the smoker(s), it had to be like bloody hell! Glad to hear you're on the mend Tonto. Just make sure you stay cool and hydrated.
