Just got back from our first Competition of the year. What a great time!! We got there around 11:30 Friday, it was drizzling a little, and after about an hour or it stopped and cleared up. After all the talk of the weather being crappy the whole weekend, it turned out great, no rain until Sunday afternoon.I have to also give out a big congratulations to Mike from Lakeside Smokers for getting Grand Champion this past weekend. Mike and his wife Kris are great people and are very deserving of this. Along with getting Grand champion, they also earn an invite to the prestigious Jack Daniel's World BBQ championships this year at the end of October. Again congratulations Mike and Kris.
I must say I am very happy with how well we did this past weekend, out of a field of 37 teams we finished 9th overall, 19th in chicken, 15th in ribs, 13th in pork, and 8th in brisket.
The next Competition is in two weeks out in Lake Placid NY. I am very exited about this one, seeing as that I have never been there before. The contest is being held inside the Olympic Speedskating oval.
