Great contest!! Weather was OK,typical southern summer weekend(a few showers fri. night and hot and muggy. Sat.wasn't too bad).Had us moved to a new area of the park.A little crowded but overall a good layout.
81 teams made for some tough competition.Good, strong finish for us(6th overall) :D .Still having trouble finishing good in all four catergories.Two strong finishes(chicken and ribs) and two middle of the road finishes(pork and brisket).Chicken(4th) and ribs(3rd) were perfect. New recipe on chicken really hit the spot.Ribs were the same recipe thats been working for a while.Pork..... :?(47th) what can I say, still haven't found what there looking for.We thought it had good flavor and texture.So we'll keep at it. Brisket(40th) I let it dry out. Didn't get good smoke penetration and had a bland pot roast taste.All things we can fix. :wink:.
