Coming to an end

     Well this year has certainly has had its ups and downs as far as contest results goes. Apparently the BBQ gods didn't quite understand what I meant when I said that one of our goals was to be consistent. Well, we achieved that goal, and we were constantly mediocre all year long. We did have a few bright spots along the way, and we definitely learned a few lessons also. Overall we still had a blast, seeing old friends and meeting new friends, isn't that what it is all about anyway.
     We just got back from the Harvard Fall Festival. This contest was one of our high points of the season. We ended up finishing 4th overall in grilling with a 4th in sausage, 4th in dessert, and 5th in shrimp. We also finished 16th out of 44 in BBQ, with a 14th in pork and a 13th in brisket. But the real highlight of the weekend was the overall win in BBQ by our friends from Mighty Swine Dining, They took 1st in Chicken, Ribs, Pork, and 12th in Brisket, what an amazing accomplishment!!!!! Congrats guys on a job well done!!!!!!! Also, congrats goes to IQUE who took 2nd in BBQ and Lakeside who took 3rd in BBQ,  ISS for the overall win in grilling, and all the rest of the teams who got called to the stage.
