This past Saturday I competed in a backyard BBQ competition at the swinetastic BBQ festival in Frederick , Md.
There was over 70 pro teams and 25 amature teams
As an amature we had to cook any kind of pork ribs so we did spare ribs trimmed up to st Louis style and well we did pretty good we finished 15th out of 25 teams I was just hoping not to be last

Congrats on the first cook. As a newbie, beware of the bbq addiction. You could end up like me. I competed in one amateur rib competition earlier this year, took first. Said that was kind of fun. Next thing you know, for the remainder of this year, I'm signed for 3 backyard competitions, 2 professional, helping out at a Sam's Club event, and assisting with two more professional competitions. Trust me, they need a support group for this addiction. I AM HOOKED!!!

Wait a second...this support group is the Brethren. And you guys keep me coming back for more. THANK YOU.

We competed in that also... we were over on the passenger side of the crane. What a great day! Nice weather, and a great time overall! It was our second comp.

Not for a while. We want to get a few amature competitions under the belt and I haven't really smoked anything but ribs so I need to try brisket, shoulder/butts and so on
