We finished 27th out of 28 teams overall. Was hoping to finish about mid-pack but then again, the caliber of teams was incredible.
Chicken 26th...turned in legs, most use thighs...although ours were super tasty and moist, skin was crisp and delicious.
Ribs 24th...our best event and got compliments from other teams saying they should have scored much higher.
Pork 26th...tasty and a hit in peoples choice...gotta work on a sauce for that one though.
Brisket 28th...gotta get the temp up for a more tender brisket, it was flavorful, just gotta get a more tender cook on it.
Oh, we got a 7th place for best booth too. Even got to walk and get a ribbon for that. Next year, watch out...I'm looking for 1st place on that one.
Timm and I are thankful for all the support from our families. Scott, Christy and Chris drove up after work on Friday to participate and made it just in time for the midnight appetizer party. Apparently, they were hungry...but you gotta try everything right. My parents, brother and his son came to support up in our adventure into the BBQ world as well. Thanks to all of them.
We stuck around on Sunday to see the backyard bbq...was hoping for more competitors on that one. We should have cooked for peoples choice that day...lots of folks looking to eat some 'que. We also took a ride on the train that day before the kids headed for home. It was Christy's first train ride, the boys obviously loved it as well. Timm and I stuck around for 5 more days enjoying the area.
