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.
