View Full Version : Good luck charms?

04-24-2012, 10:25 AM
A little bored this morning so I decided to see if anybody out there have any good luck charms? Do you have a favorite shirt/hat you wear while cooking? I'm a little strange and grow a little amish beard for the cooks. Did it on a whim last year as a joke and when I had it, we got calls so I was afraid of not having it for comps...lol.:crazy: I am planning on doing it again this year...as long as the wife lets me grow it that is.

I do but I can't mention it for fear of canceling it out :rolleyes:

Lone Star beer shirt and a bracelet that my daughter asked me to wear before our first contest, she's 2 1/2.

I like to rub my wife's knockers as often as possible during competitions for good luck.

I think Michael Scott sums it up pretty well, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5r-TG8cCeE.

I too am a little stitious! I drink plenty of brown liquor for good luck!

You better ask Hance first (and his wife) :-P

We always have a fresh bag of Peanut M&M's for each comp, and we always play the Stones' "Start Me Up" on the iPod whenever we start the fires.
BTW - Don't try it....it doesn't work.

I had a lucky chair, I thought.
Judges disagreed :oops:
Oh Well.

I guess I gotta rely on skill, so I am out of luck :wink:

We always have a couple bags of Twizzlers on hand for munching on during the cook.

We always sit left of the stage for awards. Doesn't always work, of course. I planned on using the hickory nut I got at the Jack as a good luck charm but as luck would have it, I lost it...

Maybe you didn't have enough, but you had some. I distinctly remember carrying a case of that stuff on my shoulders as I walked a mile back from Kroger. You're just lucky I needed some garnish:)

Sure hope its a lightning rod!

Come to think of it my good luck charms don't really bring much luck, at least not good.

We have a small statue of Saint Adrian - the patron saint of "butchers, arms dealers and prison guards" that travels with us to contests to act as our good luck charm.

For the awards I like to change to a clean White version of our team's grey shirts... It's an intimidation factor... "I can cook BBQ all day and keep a white shirt clean..." Yeah i know it's stupid

I always eat at the same Mexican restaurant before a contest. I am not so sure it works but it's a great excuse to go. At the site, we used to have a small toy hanging from our banner that was from a friends baby who moved back to Canada. It blew off and was lost at the ACM contest. We tanked hard that day.

The Donkey Punch Crew takes a shot of Soco when every meat is put on. However, we normally skip out on the shot for chicken Saturday morning.

The worse the storm it seems the better we do. That pic I posted was from our first comp about the time awards were supposed to be happening. They sent every one off to safety but the Tornado went 20 miles north and took out Habormasters tree and threw it across the harbor.

This is Bob, aka Bobby Q. We rub his nose for good luck after every turn in...it didnt work too well for us this past weekend.

I have a stuffed animal pink pig that I wouldn't say was good luck but I haven't done a comp without it hanging somewhere on site.

My new and fresh bottle of Gold Bond powder. Monkey Butt powder works very very well too!

I carry a bucket of beer to the awards show with 7 bud lights iced down.
