First Competition is in the books...
« on: May 19, 2017, 04:11:26 AM »
So this year I wanted to try some BBQ comps so I started last fall practicing my butt off, online forms, and classes to some how get that edge to not bomb it. Well this Saturday was my first comp at a local brewery with actual teams there, its about an 1 hour from my house so I rounded up everything that I thought I might need (which basically looked like i was moving) and a couple of buddies that always are down to do stuff and we hit the road. I will say I was feeling pretty confident, I've worked on each protein several times since last November. I felt like I got my time line down, rubs right sauces where I wanted them. But today was the true test to what I've been working towards not what i think but the judges. I will say to any of you that have competed before hats off, there is so much more to it then when practice cooking at home. But after the dust settled we ended up with a 1st in Ribs,1st in Chicken 1st in Pork and 2nd in Anything goes... And the 2017 Spring Fling Meat Thing Grand Champion. and to be honest I was totally blown away I told my buddies if i happen to get turn in times right I would be happy. But if we got a call in anything id be blown away! Anyways here is some pics of my adventure...

Lets just say I have acquired a few Kettles.  Big and small.   Vintage and New...  Some say I have a problem.  I find the Kettle, buy the Kettle, USE the Kettle...No problem...
