right????[p]We took 13th in Madison over the weekend ... 55 teams. BBQuau and Bad Byron were there. Tanked in brisket and it cost me a top ten overall. maybe it was the smoking judge (BBQ forum reference)someone make me feel better about our finish.... last year we were 17th and the year before that we were 24th.[p]My daugther finished 1st in kids Q for her first contest ... cooked a chicken roll up with sun dried tomatoes, basil and motzerella cheese...she was the big money winner for the family ...500 savings bond. I think I might have hooked her on a bad habit... as a side note she is trying to be a vegitarian ...LOL she never tasted her entry.[p]ps ..i'm in Ft.Lauderdale for the next 2nights ... any place I should try to get to for dinner???[p]thanks

    Ever been to Mai Kai, smoked signals? It is a trip in itself, but they have some great food. It's expensive and touristy but the meat is cooked to perfection over wood in Mongolian ovens. This would be a perfect time of year to go. Growing up we went there for special occasions. My pre-prom dinner was there. 15th & 40th birthdays, too. I hear it's all been redone after being wrecked by hurricanes.... At least go for a big, fancy cocktail!

    smoked signals,
    Next thing you know your little girl will go after Molly Shark's Iron Chef Award. Not a bad role model...

    Thank you,

    smoked signals,
    So that was your daughter who won? Awesome![p]I'd say 13th place is very impressive, particularly for a person who only competes once a year. There were 54 teams competing, and many of them are some of the best around: Quau, Shigs in Pit, Ulcer Acres, Hoosier Hogs, Moonswiners, Pig Pak ... just to name a few! Heck, I wish I came in 13th. We were two spots behind you. At least my wife redeemed us with her second place dessert finish![p]I felt pretty good about our showing. 10th place in sauce was nice to get, since we did it from scratch. 12th in pork, so we almost were in the money on that one. But otherwise, my results were pretty average.[p]It was nice meeting you there. See you at Eggtoberfest![p]Mike
