Trailhound Smokers does well at USA BBQ Challenge

What a great weekend it was for us...a long weekend...but a great one for sure.  Some of the best teams in America were there competing for their share of $125,000.  I even got to meet Myron Mixon of Jack's Old South from Georgia.
Here is a rare shot with both of us in the picture, thanks Kim for taking a some photos for us.
We're wrapping ribs.
Timm prepping chicken.  Some award winning chicken but we didn't know it at the time.
Chris and Timm at the pit.
Timm had a great time at this of his most relaxed ever.  We want to thank all the friends, family, and co-workers that came out to show their support for us.  In return, many of them feasted on chicken, ribs, pork and brisket. 
Crowds were big for awards.  Congrats to McFrankenboo BBQ for winning 1st place in chicken.  WOW...that is so awesome!!!  
We were very pleased with our product for turn-ins.  We were astounded and shocked when we heard our name called to get a check...we took 6th place in chicken and 9th in brisket!!! Holy Moly!!!  This event had cream of the crop teams from all over and little ol' Trailhound Smokers picked up two top ten awards.  Who da thunk it.  I wish I had video of Timm's face...priceless. 
Again, thanks for all the support.  We would especially lke to thank Shawn from Advance Pro for sponsoring our meat for the event.  He is one totally awesome guy!!! 
You can see more pictures of the event at the promoters link.  There are some great shots of team sites with their pits and more.
