Trailer loaded in.
Lang 84 gets dropped Monday night.
Tuesday AM the scaffold goes up.
Tuesday PM we load in the bar/kegerator/backwoods/etc
Wednesday AM we load in bar supplies, food supplies, and begin decorating.

Thanks to budweiser for the 20 case donation to keep the team properly lubricated during load-in and setup. 1.3 cases per team member should do the trick :)

So, the g/f has said she really wants to see this "Ms. Hoggie" contest ... it looks like I may be able to make it to the Brethren Mixer after all

Plus, I promised her that we could go to the Zoo on Saturday, so she could spend as much time with the Penguins as possible

We built the floor segments in advance and moved them out there. We had to do some improv because our spot isn't level and build up the front to make it level with everything else.

Trailer and Porto pots placed as well as ice machine and Lang smoker. Scaffold going up tomm am. Gotta say that Matt w direct scaffold has been f'n awesome to deal with this far. Very very cool guy who goes above and beyond.

Carpeting, bar furniture and backwoods go in tomorrow as well. Food and bar supplies going in wed morning. Neil from McClure's BBQ arrived today and we hit Gus'... He's a chicken snob but was impressed. He's been unimpressed with interstate, Corky's, or commissary que, but like central.

So ready for wed afternoon to start setting everything up and decorating.... Oh, and having a few drinks and enjoying quality NOLA cuisine.

Wiped out. Had Q'n from here as our first judge. He came by later and it was great to chat with him. He gave us straight 10's in all but overall where he was torn but had to award his 10 to another team... Giving us a 9.9. Close but no cigar. Finished mid 20s in ribs which was a bit disappointing but a 3rd in Beef (after a 2nd in seafood last year) was nice.

Booth was insane thurs/fri.... Band was amazing. Will post many more pics and video tonight. Now, however, I will be floating in the pool with a beer. Load out complete

I was part of Team On Asswinement. Kingsford and the National Pork Board brought in an editor from Better Homes and Garden, Saveur, Men's Health, Huffington Post and Me.

We met for the first time on Thursday morning. Other than me there was no low and slow BBQ experience. A couple gas grillers. We spent Thursday learning from Chris Lillie about rubs and sauces along with detailed instruction on how he cooks his competition ribs. It was an amazing day.

Thursday night we were giving every spice and herb under the sun to come up with our own rub and sauce. It was quite an interesting experience.

Friday we practice cooked our ribs on an amazing pit from Pitmaker out of Houston, Texas. After our ribs were done we were mock judged by Chris Lillie, Amy Mills, Brad Orrison and Tuffy Stone. Had a great dinner with them all.

Friday night we fine tuned our recipes based on the feedback from our judges. Got to hang out with the gang from Big Bob Gibson BBQ and Riblicious.

Saturday we cooked our ribs, went through the judging process and finished 83rd. Considering we started from scratch with five guys who only met Thursday morning I'm thrilled with the results.

We didn't get a call but still got to experience the thrill of it when we got to go on stage with Chris Lilly for his 5th place in shoulder.

Ate at Rendevous too.

Got to spend some time with Tuffy's team and Johnny Trigg in the hotel lobby Saturday night.

All and all an incredibly amazing weekend. Mi am so fortunate to have been given this opportunity.

Just got home - unloaded and ready for work... :(

Had a great time overall - was kept busy by the Norwegians as always, but lot of fun as always!!

Our team took a 3rd in Exotic (Lamb), the Green Grillers Award (best recycling team) and my personal favorite - 8th in Shoulder!!! What an honor - I was the main guy for the shoulders and I never thought I'd see the day where I would walk the stage for a top 10 in one of the main categories. It was a great team effort and what a RUSH!!!

Congrats to Too Sauced to Pork on their 2nd place in sauce!! Well done!!

And as always, congrats to all the brethren that walked and represented!!!

See you guys soon!!

Too Sauced To Pork had a great contest! We enjoyed meeting everyone. I am exhausted. Finished breakdown at about 5 PM last night. We unloaded flooring into my backyard just before the rain. Everyone is so tired we are going to take Monday off to recuperate. Tuesday we will clean everything including the Stumps. We will have to stack all the flooring in a place to be stored until needed again. I don't want the neighbors complaining too much. Bribing them with BBQ helps a lot. Every year at load out you say why did I volunteer to do this. About a week later its how can we improve the MIM experience next year.

Had a BLAST this past week/weekend. We all wanted to thank Too Sauced To Pork again for having the Brethren Mixer. That food was DELICIOUS!!!!!

We came Friday and walked around taking pictures and cone licking. As we got there MIL is slowing down. We made the full trip around the whole location, and she was all but giving out. I decided to take one for the team and say "if we need to go we can." To that the ladies said ok ... once we get on the trolley my g/f says "can we run over to the mall for a minute?" Her mom before it gets completely out of her mouth ... "SURE!!!!!" ... my Memphis In May gets cut short, so I can walk around a mall with the same exact stores as our local mall.

HOWEVER, I do get the promise "if you'll go we can come back for the results." Great, I'm in then. So all day Saturday I'm looking forward to making it back down to the river front. Then we eat and decide that's probably when it'll start back up ... oh wait ... we should go ahead and pack so we won't have to tomorrow ... figures

Either way, had a GREAT time, and already recruited a buddy to team with me for the Bikes, Blues, and BBQ competition I was telling a lot of you about. I'm going to find a way to hook up a TV at our site, so I won't miss the football game that day ... but IT'S ON!!!!!

Slab Yo Momma ... we walked by a few times, and saw you doing the voting thing, but it was tough for me "hang out" while MIL sat there acting like the world was coming to an end any second

Exotic - 13th
Beef - 20th
Seafood - 38th
Hotwings - 49th
Chicken - 64th
Mustard Sauce - 42nd

4 top twankys aint bad!!!

Matt, did you do the tie math? There were several score ties in the catagories, but they don't list numbers twice on the sheet...therefore you may be lower in places than you listed.

So, Team On Asswinement finished 83rd out of 120 teams in the rib category. Normally, that would not be all that great. But considering I was teamed with four magazine editors, who knew nothing really about BBQ, and we had to make a rib and sauce on Thursday I think we did pretty good.

I know I would not have wanted to finish 84 to 120 if I were the other teams.

I'm with Beef n the Chicken from Memphis, TN.

Wife and I got a call last week for 2nd place Seafood at MIM. We were 1st in Seafood at MIM back in 2009 so it was fun to get on stage again. Wife and I also did our team's Beef and Mustard sauce entries but neither or those did very well at all. Last two years my mustard sauce was top 20 but this year it was near the bottom, same recipe. Whatcha going to do right?

Props to the Slab yo Mama team who I see posting here. Always seem like a good team from this outside observer. I registered on this board last year but look forward to poking around here some more this time around. Happy Q to everybody.

Cack, the note you left on the Silky's check kills me! That's soooo true! My wife is a professional singer and sings on Beale a good bit so I'm pretty familiar with the woman you're speaking of. I have NO IDEA how she has a weekly gig there or anywhere. . Amazing!

Dude, I'm telling you that lady was HORRIBLE!!!!! We walked in and this guy was singing so we thought it was open mic or something. He was actually really good. Then she goes "I'm going to do this song for his buddy he requested." and she killed it (in a bad way). Then the next song she did she got to the end and said "what's wrong with all of you" ... I wanted to scream out "WE'RE TRYING NOT TO LISTEN TO YOU." That had to be the WORST professional "singer" I've ever heard in my life.

Tomato Sauce - 2nd
Matt, did you do the tie math? There were several score ties in the catagories, but they don't list numbers twice on the sheet...therefore you may be lower in places than you listed.


Ha! I thought they scored it like PGA Golf.... if there are 3 ties for 2nd then the next guy is 5th place.

I went off the official results (I think?) sheets which ignore ties:
Example: 14th in Wings (http://memphisinmay.org/assets/1680/wings.pdf) or would that make us 12th with two ties?

I'm with Beef n the Chicken from Memphis, TN.

Props to the Slab yo Mama team who I see posting here. Always seem like a good team from this outside observer. I registered on this board last year but look forward to poking around here some more this time around. Happy Q to everybody.

Thanks for the kind words. We do what we can!

Next year should be pretty insane. The head of one of the two scaffolding companies has joined our team and will be using our booth as their showcase. Discussions already going on about some pretty interesting setups. Doesn't hurt that the guy has major pull within the park too with regards to location, resources, etc.

Food wise we've got a few other things in mind that should improve our finishes. Pitmaster for Porkstars (5th ribs this year, 7th in 2011) is a good buddy of mine and they cook on Backwoods Competitors as well. He's coming over a few times this summer will be open-book-ing their process and we're going to experiment with some different stuff. Should be good times. :thumb:

I think I might cook in a few more comps this/next year... typically we only do MIM annually.
