New to the forum, my first pnwba comp this Sunday.

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by nofnque, Sep 13, 2013.

  1. Hi everyone,

    So I'm still fairly new to this and decided to try my hand in my first Southern style BBQ competition. I'm competing this weekend in the BBQ on the bypass in Langley, BC. It is a PNWBA event.

    I run a weber smoky mountain 18in, and a Kingsford barrel smoker that I have modified.

    Any tips for the competition would be appreciated.
  2. Congrats on competing! Wish you all the best and I'm sure you will get some great feedback here. Are you doing an NC vinegar based sauce, mustard style, or a tomato based sauce. Would love to know [​IMG], that would help us tweak your smoking to your specific needs. Best of luck!! D

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
