    Well we (@jtstitzel  and I) had a good time and won 1st place in brisket!  The competition was interesting, they had some fairly early turn in times and didn't let us start smoking till Midnight...so we had less then 12 hours to smoke our butts and briskets. Unfortunately our pork didn't turn out to tender because of time and a crucial mistake on my park off putting it in the big smoker in the cold spot, sleep deprivation at its finest haha!

    But we tried some new methods and i'm happy with the results. I'm still waiting for the over all scores. But here are some pictures, and more on the way. This is the first 1st place call we've gotten!

    Got the smoker in place...parked on a hill which i later learned was a bad idea (all the pan juices went to one side and didnt cook even)

    The competition

    Waiting till midnight so fried up some wangs!

    Also fried up some Biscuits, JT's idea and they were delicious 

    Finally! Smokers going

    Morning rolls around and ribs and everything else on the smoker

    Smoked some of the brisket trimmings! mmmmm beef candy

    JT did some test runs with different combinations of sauce and brine on extra chicken thighs

    Ribs came out pretty darn good...liking my new rub recipe

    First place call on brisket! nice metal etched award also

    Here are pictures of our turn in boxes


    Pork wasn't tender enough so the box is not pretty
