We competed in Gettysburg this weekend. A member of our team contacted a local food bank/pantry about donating our leftovers. They gladly said yes. The cool part was that we asked the teams around us if they would also like to donate, and they did. We sent them off with 4 coolers full of meat. Pretty awesome for our fellow teams to step up. I know a lot of you guys are sick of BBQ by the end of a comp, why not send it off to others that need it (plus you can use it as a tax write off)?

That was a nice thing to do.

Wonder if this could become a standard practice at these competitions?

That was very nice of you to put that together. It was very therapeutic for me to chop up my poor scoring pork for a good cause :grin:

Happy to donate and thanks for asking and leading the effort. BTW, Pat is not joking above...I stood a safe distance while he chopped away! ;-)

We were going to donate a rack of ribs, but it was in the middle of the people's-choice (giving away the pork and brisket) and we were SLAMMED. I didn't even know they had been through until after. :oops:

With a 177 I'd imagine that there wasn't any leftover brisket:razz:

didn't know that they were doing that. we gave everything away for people's choice except the choice pieces we saved for friends that arrived later. We would have gladly given for charity

Good to see you guys again. Hopefully we'll cook together again soon. You should come to Deale Sept 1-2.

Very nice gesture guys!
We started doing that for vending and catering whenever possible.

nevermind the tax deduction, good things happen to good people!
