Well wish me luck my first rib contest is tomorrow. I dropped the smoker off tonight and plan on arriving in the morning at 4:30a.m. The judging is at 12:00. Now the bad news- Forecast thunderstorms all AM. Could be interesting, they are having it rain or shine. I will try to post some pics later and let you know how things went.
If you're into competitions, a shelter would be a good idea. Maybe a portable car shelter with walls. You just have to make some holes for the smoke to exit, possibly some flexible ducts.

And break a leg.
Good luck tomorrow Schultzy, dont do what i did and forget to take pics of your turn-in box
What kinda ribs ya cookin? Just try to have fun and you'll do great, please keep us posted
Well its 3:30 am maybe I'm a little excited but I can't sleep so Im up and making sure I didn't forget anything. Well the forecasters weren't wrong and its raining right now. I hope to have a little window to put my 10'x10' E-Z up tent up. At least we will be able to prepare things in the dry. Hope to have some good news later. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
