Technically, not a full blown comp, but a local rib challenge

Anybody else heading down to check this out today? I see at least one Brethren is competing. http://www.windycityribclassic.com/ . And I think a number of others will be in attendance as well.

Ribs only, (edit, looks like maybe chickens also) wood/charcoal only doesn't look like pellets or temp control devices are allowed. Looks like a decent way to spend a day. Might have had to do it ourselves if health had permitted :sad:. Maybe next year.

I think we'll head down in a few hours and see what's doin'

So....congrats to brethren BillM for 1st place chicken, and 3rd place sauce! We had a great time, but had to leave before the awards. Anybody have the full award list?

For a first time, rib only event, this looked like a (largely) well run show. There were some snafus with who the judges were, what turn in windows were exactly, and when the awards were, but all in all, a beautiful setting, right off the lake. Had health been better, I think this would have been a fun one to do, but I'm glad we were able to get down there and see some freinds we haven't seen most of the summer!

Hopefully we can do it next year if they do a repeat!

It was a ribs, chicken, and sauce comp which overall wasn't bad for a first year. Brethren Bogyo's Mojo took 1st place in sauce, BillM of Heads Red took second (sorry for the Spoiler Dan :wink:) and a very exciting 1st in Chicken. Congrats Bill.

Special thanks to Dan (Cmohr74) for helping me out at this cook..a good percentage of that chicken win was due to his exceptional chicken butchering skills (since we were handed for whole chickens to cook along with 5 slabs of ribs) and last minute glaze idea...
It was a fun contest although venue was a bit tight and not too accomodating for larger vehicles ..but couldnt beat the excellent view of the lake
