    A very long weekend indeed. It was all worth it in the end. We had an awesome time, laughed a lot, made some new friends and then topped it off with a great finish. I still can't believe it!

    A shadetree competition is generally ribs and chicken only. We cooked thighs and spares at Whistlestop. Heath has pics of the ribs on the XL that I don't mind sharing. The sauce is a homemade concoction we make at home. As for plated, or boxed pics.....well that is like kissing and telling :P

    Congrats fellow AlaEgger. I'm sure the event helped get some folks mind off the storm damage, even just for a moment. Take care, Randy

    It was a nice time. Whistlestop had a People's Choice category and the money raised from it was donated to disaster relief locally. They also had teams cook extra meat and it was delivered to some of the locations serving food. Overall 500 lbs of meat and $10,000 dollars were donated.

    I was shocked when I got the score sheets. Those are few and far between.
