Yay Dan and crew!

Brian, just remember that any given day can yield different results. that is particularly true in BBQ...perhaps a good deal more so than any other competitive endeavor.

Congrats Capt. Dan!!!! I seem to hear that alot, the better you feel about your product the worse you do.

Most of you probably don't know Barb and I as Hickory Grove BBQ Team. This was our first comp and we are extremely proud of our results.

Brian and Mark have given us great advice and we could not have done this without thier help. Thanks again guys!

Everyone gets a bad comp. It's just a matter of time Brian.
Don't give up. It will come to you and Mark. Having fun is more important than the trophies and ribbons. The friends you make and keep while competing, now thats the real prize my friend. Ask Geoff how he feels about his chicken this last comp. 3 weeks before, just .004 off of perfect score, this comp 17th place. The night before I left, I through together a new pork rub ( deffinate bozo no-no).
We already had a pork rub that we had been using, but wasn't scoring well with it. The boys tasted it, gave me the thumbs up,I rubbed both butts and 3 of the 4 racks of ribs with it, and "suprize"! 1st place in pork and 5th in ribs with it.

Now if I can just remember what I used to make it.:smack:

so it just goes to show, on any given day, you can win big or suck hind teat!

Good luck at Sparta!:msn-wink:

Thanks for the words of wisdom, Dan!

Jerry, I'm so sorry I forgot to mention you and Barb and a very respectable 10 place finish for your first comp.
Way To Go!
Where did you end up with the Pork and Apple category?
I don't know how you didn't take 1st with that awesome Apple Dumpling on the smoker....

:roflmaoha0: Yea that is what we thought.

Now we are having lot of disappointment that I did not get to taste the winning dish. That must have been just one awsome desert. I messed up and should have asked for a taste. I hope the winner will send me a picture and recipe.

Congradulations to her!
