Competition Updates

Can’t believe it’s been since February that we have posted how we are doing at the Competitions.  We started out at Pensacola, Fl we ended up 6th overall with a 6 pork and a 5th brisket.  We went and hung out at the Wild Bunch Butt Burners residence in Atmore, AL in between a few contests.  We headed over to Mobile, AL with we were 14th overall with a 4th place pork.  We headed back to Atmore and hung out for another week while waiting to head over to Tupelo, MS.  This is a unique event because all the troopers and volunteers wear Elvis glasses and you are given a police escort to your spot.  Pretty cool.  We didn’t do well here at all.  We finished 13th with no top ten calls.  We left Tupelo and headed to Hammond, LA where we parked behind the City Glass Shop for the week while waiting to move over to our spot for the weekend on Thursday morning.  We enjoyed visiting with Eric and Georgette at their home on Monday night along with Swiggin’ Pig, Wild Bunch Butt Burners, and David Roper.  The meal was excellent and we really enjoyed getting to visit more with everyone.  On Tuesday night we all headed to Alack Culinary Equipment and Sales where John and Kathy of Wild Bunch, along with Barry of Swiggin’ Pig did a class on Brisket and pork.  Wednesday night we all headed back over to Alack and Mike did a class on chicken, and Mike Richter did a class on Ribs.  The room was packed both nights, and we all had a lot of fun.  Alack really has everything you need to do backyard bbq along with professional BBQ.  Be sure and check it out if you are ever in the area.  We didn’t do great this year at Hammond but we did end up 11th overall with an 8th place brisket.  We headed home.
