    That is a super sweet set up right there!! Assuming you roll the eggs out to cook? Are those lights or vents on the side of the trailer?

    +1 on how the eggs stay tied in for travel

    Looks like you are securing the Eggs with zip tie's from the nest to anchors in the floor. Is that correct?

    No concern about them being top heavy?

    Where is the comp. in Brentwood, I don't live too far from there & might pop in.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Very sweet rig. Love how the eggs are docked and look like they are ready to pounce. Good luck with the comp season.

    Do you stay in CA, or does your team travel regionally or nationally?

    We compete in the California BBQ Association's points race each year with 135 other teams.   We used to travel to 18-20 a year, now we only do 8-10.   To compete heavy for the state crown you need to do about 15 a year at least.    Hard to get away that much anymore it seems.   It is fun, and I have a good team and that makes it easier on everyone.   We'd like to make it back to the American Royal and Jack Daniels World Championships again, we did both in 2010.
