Thanks! We have really been duking it out all year...who knew that win the Rookie of the Year race in CA would mean you would need to be in the top 5 in the state? And there are 4 rookie teams in the top 10! Really exciting stuff, and I am honored to be a part of it! Hopefully it shows that we like to have some fun, cheer on our friends and be in the hunt with everyone else!

Congratulations to Big Poppa and Left Coast! What a pretty show this was, on grass near the ocean -- I had forgotten how WET it gets at the beach, durrrr! The city went all out to make cooks feel welcome, I look forward to coming to this contest again next year.

Great job Big Poppas on another GC. Also have to congratulate The Rub Co. sponsored team LEFT COAST Q for their 3rd RGC of the year. You guys are knocking HARD on that GC door!!!

This was our first time competing at a Arlie Bragg competition and I think he set a new bar for CA competitions. Beautiful grass park set between the St. Regis and Ritz Carlton which overlooks the canyon and ocean. Seafood buffet w/ free beer on Friday night. We had a great time at this one taking 4th overall against a really tough field.

A huge thank you to our sponsors KOSMOS Q and T&H Meats for the top notch products!!! Also need to thank Woodhouse BBQ for the waffles and chocolates. They were incredible!

Its nice to go to a comp on grass...with power and the right amount of power ready....super clean and staying that way....ice when you need it.....trash picked up

I didnt even get to the seafood buffet but Arlie and Dana Point were just spot on.
