Our second competition of the season is in the books. We had a great time in Enid this weekend. We met some new friends. There was a lot of great teams at this one. Out of 75 teams we finished 38th overall. There were only 42 points separating us from first. In the meat categories we placed 34th in chicken, 48th in ribs, 37th in pork, 34th in brisket. We entered the desert category and finished 15th out of 21 teams.
We competed at the Firelake BBQ Cook off in Shawnee, Oklahoma this weekend. Man a lot of great competition teams. 52 teams total. We didn’t do as well as we would have liked to. We placed 49th chicken, 25th ribs, 45th pork, 45th brisket. We’ll just take it and get ready for Enid. We had a great time. The facilities there were top notch. Concrete rv pad, showers, clean indoor bathrooms, dinner, breakfast, made us feel special. Thanks Jason and your staff for putting on one heck of a contest. Thanks to my sister and brother-in-law for help and support.
Our BBQ season will start later this month. We are looking forward to competing, seeing some of our friends, and making some new ones. We feel we have made some changes during the off season that should benefit us well. Good luck to all our BBQ friends this season.
We competed at the 2014 Harper County Bullseye BBQ Cook-off this past weekend. We had a great time and met some new friends. We are really looking forward to seeing them again next year. We did pretty good. We placed 9th overall out of 30 teams. We placed 19th in pork, 18th in brisket, 9th in chicken, and 5th in ribs. What a way to end our season. I want to personally thank everyone who supported us over the past year. We can’t wait until next year.
On October 4th we competed in the Wellington Homecoming and Fall Festival BBQ Cook-off. This is our hometown contest. We weren’t sure how we would do, but we were ready. It got pretty cold early Saturday morning, down to about 39 degrees. The weather was wonderful throughout the day. There was a pretty decent crowd before turn in. It was different this time because we are so used to putting the garnish in the boxes, but didn’t have to in this one. We placed 3rd in chicken, 3rd in brisket, 1st in pork, and 1st in ribs. After all of that we won Grand Champion. Even though it was a small event, winning our first Grand Champion in our hometown….priceless. I would like to thank the Bank of Commerce for their support and the Wellington Chamber of Commerce for doing such a great job of putting this event together.
