Had to post because it's kinda a big deal for us....but this weekend, in Covington, VA, high in the mountains, Dizzy Pig will be competing in its 100th pro contest.  Every contest has been cooked exclusively on EGGs, and we'll have 6 of them smoking this weekend in this state championship.

Thanks to BGE and Eggers everywhere for the support of our team over the past 10 years! It continues to be a wild ride.
Cheers, and happy cookin!

    I made your Salmon with Raging River rub and Butter/Maple glaze this weekend.  Our guest said it was the best salmon she's ever eaten, BY FAR.  

    Cook that, and you''re a shoe in.  

    Good luck !

    Thanks a bunch yall. Howdy Doody, Glad the salmon worked out for you. Wish we could cook salmon for the "Pork" category ;)   Our pork has not been scoring well lately. But I don't think it would go over to well with the judges when they expect chicken, ribs, pork and brisket.

    Hi54putty, we were just in NC at the end of April in Edenton. We'll be back there next year. 
    Thanks again...and cheers

    Nature Boy I just can't imagine your pork not scoring well.  Dizzy Dust has become our primary rib rub and I had two different family members say this was the best they had ever had.  Of course, my family members are not professional Q judges :D

    Duganboy. Much appreciate the kind words. Professional BBQ judges are over-rated, BTW. ;)

    Our pork not scoring terribly luckily..but It's getting really tough out there. Much more serious competitors coming on every year. Taking classes. The teams these days take this stuff seriously. You really need to blow the judges mind to score well. We were scoring high with pork a couple years ago, now it seems to be ribs. Weird how it happens.

    Good luck Chris. I have jerk marinated wings with a dusting of Raging River on the egg now. Enjoy the beauty of the Alleghany's this weekend.


    Johnson, Navin R... Sounds like a typical bastard.

    Idea: Sell big Dizzy Dust gift packages/assortments at Sam's/Costco.  Good or bad idea?

    I hear nothing but good things on the flavors and ingredients in DP.

    Hokie, thanks man. Spent easily 200 nights in the Alleghenys in a tent. Love, love love that high plateau (for the East ;) Never been to Covington, but looking forward to it. Forecast is 102 here in Fairfax, and 97 up on the plateau. Dang....hope it's not humid!

    Z, I think I'll opt out on the Costco deal, but we are working hard to get the stuff out there.

    NB - Since the pork's not scoring well maybe slip some of the Salmon in there just to see if they notice! It probably ought to be a category anyway.

    That would be nice, but at least you can go to Ace in Walnut Creek.. thatks closest for me and approx 30 mins away

    We are having a hard time getting your product here in Canada. I am in the Montreal area and would love to buy packages at Costco or another distributor.

    Congrats on the 100th competition and good luck.
