1st Competition this weekend

Did my first competition this weekend at the county fair. It was a bit intimidating seeing all these big bbq rigs, teams of 4 with their matching shirts. Of course the 2 big BBQ restaurants in the county were there too. I only had a large egg, a digiQ, lots of beer and my wife to help drink the beer. We cooked all four categories. Chicken, Ribs, Butt and Brisket. My goal for the weekend was I didn't want to finish last. SO this was shocking...............
Grand Champion
Awards and prizes: 1st in chicken, 1st in ribs, 4th in butt, 2nd brisket a $400 dollar check, 2 new tables, a 10x10 EZ-up canopy, 2 zero gravity lounge chairs. Damn I love my egg!


  • Wow! Those are pretty cool! I hope to cook like that one day B)
