1st Annual YCCA BBQ Cook-Off

Precott Valley hosted it's 33rd Home and Garden Show May 13-15, along with the 1st Annual YCCA BBQ Cook-Off in conjuntion with it.  Tommy Duncan's Whiskey Ranch Pro BBQ Series hosted the event and they did a fabulous job.  We arrived Friday morning, meeting with Tommy to pick our location, and getting set up. 
KCBS inspectors came in to inspect meat, only then did we realize we forgot our chicken at home...fortunately there was a grocery store accross the street.  We got our meats prepped and back in the coolers and took time to relax and meet with BBQ friends and make some new ones. 
Scott and Christy came in mid afternoon to help with the event.  They jumped right in helping with what ever needed to be done, from prepping people's choice meat to making a run to pick up some things forgotten or needed.
People's Choice tasting samples started off a little slow but by 11:30 was in full swing.  Scott and Christy were in charge of this portion and did a great job.  We received rave reviews, with many folks saying they were to told to come to our booth for some of the best ribs and brisket at the event.  What a great feeling it is to hear such words from folks you don't even know.
Awards were held right on time and went quickly and smoothly.  We were very pleased with our results, receiving 6th in chicken, 11th in ribs (missed it by that much), 8th in pork, 9th in brisket with a 7th overall finish. 
It was a good time for all of us.  We got to see an old co-worker of Timm's, Jennifer and her family.  They live in Cottonwood now and love it.  We also spent time with Crystal's cousin and family, Karen and Dave.  We're thankful for the comfy bed Saturday night you guys. 
We look forward to this event again next year.  Here's a few more pictures for your viewing pleasure.
