    It was the insecticide flavor in my ribs that won it for me!  [​IMG]
     
  5. Man, looks like everyone was having such a great time.

    I was sitting here all weekend just waiting for some pics and reports.

    Very happy everything turned out and glad you all had a nice weekend to do it all on.

    Hopefully in the future, if our area has one then the Misses and I will be able to attend.

    Great Job everyone!!

    JJ, I didn't take any pictures of the ribs or the seafood gumbo. So you know "No pics didn't happen". The gumbo recipe i got from eman, and the ribs are the same way I have been doing them for some time. BB's 3-1.5-.5, with your foiling sauce, and cranking the temp up in the WSM for the last 1/2 hour.

    AND NOW... "THE REST OF THE STORY"

    I did a head count during the Sat. nite dinner and came up with 37 people, 9 of those were the judges and campground faculty. So that means we had 28 SMF members and their guests, THATS AWESOME for the first time. I'm so glad I had the chance to put names with faces, make new freinds, and learn a few things as well.

    I don't know what happened (could of been alcohol, naaaaaaa) but I didn't get any pics of the ribs either. I did manage one pic of mine coming off the smoker

    Here's the judges showing their professionalism during the ribs and special dish compitition

    Man, that lookee like fun; wonder if there are enough people to have one in North Ohio next summer? I live in a charming little Town with lots of Camping and Fishing right here, within 2 miles of town.

    My FIL is the Mayor and I'm sure I can get a park to use, if not the Camp ground is at the edge of town.

    Would love to meet some of you guys....;}-

    Hey ya'll

    Just joined the Forum. First, I would like to thank Keith (JckDanls 07) for introducing me to this forum, and welcoming me to join him and Charlotte to the 1st South Florida Gathering. What an excellent time I had meeting a lot of great people like Doug, Al & Judy, Turnip, Craig, Ron, and James just to name a few. I would like to thank all of you for letting me join in the Rib Competition. It was an awesome time. Looking forward to being a member of this Forum.
