This could get very interesting and funny at the same time. Like most of us do (some not), like to have a cocktail or two/three/four while competing. Do you have your own ? or witnessed something that was either really funny, horrifying, or something that pissed you off ? :becky::loco::mad2:
are there pictures of the incidents ?:icon_blush:

For instance a man jumping onto a moving golf cart to attack the event organizer in a drunkin protest.... or at least 7 teams hootin' it up at midnight in a local bar (ummm, gotta get to those smokers soon)... Or the reverand delivering a sermon calling to the bbq gods.

so whats your story ?

We decided to let, unknown to us at the time, Tim McMaster, pit bitch for us. Scary to look at, at first with those Elvis sideburns and goatee...was hoping he wouldn't kill us in our sleep.
Anyway, we have dinner of bratwursts, sauerkraut, pita, garlic hummus, jack Daniels and beer. At some point someone mentioned that there was a strip club not far up the road. After, a fair amount of arm twisting we decided to go. The Flyers were in the playoffs and and other patrons of the bar were buying us shots of jaegarmeister and tequila. So I look over at tim, as he is watching the hockey game, and ever so nonchalant he looks into his empty beer glass and vomits right in there, not spilling a drop. He does not get up, or run to restroom, just sits there. I nudge my brother, who is on the other side of me and he looks at me like "what?" I head nod towards tim and again he says what?! I told him " just wait for it" and sure enough he fills that beer glass with vomit.
He finally gets up goes to the bathroom, empties the glass and hands it to bartender...wow really?
We asked him if we should get taxi back to comp ...he says no he is fine and is the most sober one in bar as he just got rid of all the alcohol in his system

In early 2010, there was a food blogger in AZ that was calling out AZ's competition BBQ teams for cooking subpar food at a previous competition. He insisted that he could cook much better than a vast majority of teams. Obviously, the local teams took offense to this and invited him out to the next competition to compete, a 55-team KCBS event in Scottsdale. He took up the offer (free entry fee) and signed up.

He and a buddy rolled in with a powder blue ECB bullet to cook on. They were about the most bare-bones team we had ever seen....cooker, cooler, two chairs. It turns out that they were brining/marinading (don't now what the hell they were really doing to be honest) all 4 meats at the same time in the same liquid.

As the night wore on and the drinks started flowing, teams would trickle by to say hi, offer advice and give the foodie a hard time for talking so much smack. Eventually, teams began to "offer advice" on chicken. The biggest question that was asked was: "Have you guys got your chicken on yet? Might want to get that started." Of course, they had been drinking as well and it was shortly after midnight.

You guessed it, they started their chicken right around 1-2am, thinking they were getting some solid advice from the otherwise helpful teams. DAL in chicken and a 52 out of 55 overall. In all fairness, the foodie dude did later compose a blog post showing a newfound respect for competition BBQ.

Later we found out that they failed to properly remove all of the coals from the ECB and it started a fire in his trunk on the drive home.

... witnessed something that was either really funny, horrifying, or something that pissed you off ? :becky::loco::mad2:

starting chicken at 1 am is classic...

I personally dont like to start my smokers to early, thats not me. So i was indulging a little, decided to take a quick power nap (with timer) before starting my smoker & cooking through the night. To be awaken by a large shadowlike figure shaking my canopy.. yellin "your smoker is ice cold...I mean ice cold" .. kind of funny, figuring i hadnt started it yet. I yelled out "Are you kidding me, it must of went out?" dont know what made me say that..the power nap, or the beer ???

Is this true? If so, many questions are answered but many more come to mind. What promotion? Was/is he a Babyface or a Heel? And yes I have outed myself as a wrestling fan. OK not so much now, but I enjoyed it a lot over the years, particularly when I was a kid down in Texas and Fritz Von Erich was king.

I'm sure everyone's heard the story of Myron falling into the creek at the Jack.

A couple of years ago at Que & Cruz there was a first time team that got "caught up in the moment" They were partying and hitting the bottle pretty hard Friday night. Both the event director and I were camping out not far from their site. The music had been going all night and about 3 it suddenly got louder to the point it woke me up. Enough was enough, I got up to go over and say something. When I got to their site there was the girl on the team stark naked and dancing on top of by the picnic table :clap: with all the guys standing around hooting and hollering. At that point the event director got there and shut them down. I'm not even sure they were awake for turn ins.

I am sure injected with Kentucky bourbon, rubbed in a little dirt,
marinated in night sweats...looks like he's been on the smoker a little while...I think its done ?

We've got a lot. But the best one that comes to mind was at Madison IN Riberfest last year. I think we ended up with 8 of us there.
I got up at my normal 3:30 am and noticed I had a text from one of the other guys that said if your hear a pissed off bear coming out of the woods don't worry it's just Phil....we owned him!!
Now so ya know Phil is 6' 5" probably 280. He passed out in the wrong place n time. They taped him to his gravity chair and carried him in a woods about 50 yds behind or cook site. They also got ahold of his phone and email most of his family that he was ready to come out of the closet. They also emailed a few of his wifes friends and said that he and his wife had been exploring the idea of becoming swingers and wanted to know if they were interested.
Needless to say were still laughing on that one.

Ok, it’s raining/sprinkling in Belleview so Dallas takes the zero gravity chair and places it directly in the center of the easy-up and crashes for the night. After he is good and passed out … I mean sleeping; we move the canopy so that his feet are exposed to the rain.
He wakes up with cold wet feet and asks if any of us have an extra pair of shoes. “Why?” We ask. He starts telling us he had too much to drink last night because he remembered lying down under the canopy thinking he would stay dry. BUT when he woke up his feet were hanging out from under the canopy. “My shoes are soaked!”
The joke lasted a year before someone told him we moved the canopy.
