This weekend was the 2nd annual Stand by Your Grill in Fulton, MS. 50 pro teams battled it out in a Corp of Engineers campground. I arrived a little later than I like and started to walk around to take pictures when I realized the place was deserted. Where were all of the cooks?

Ahhh...the cook team dinner!

I found it hard to get great pics of the teams since some of them were buried deep in the woods of the camp sites.

The camp sites were set up on 3 different loops. This shuttle made trips between them and the parking lot all day long.

There was a fleet of golf carts to assist with turn ins.

Ha! Her lip is still sticking out for not making the trip. Seems the social life of a 12 year old is getting in the way of things important!

Judging report

I got selected to table captain instead of judge this week. I like to TC because it allows me to see the scores of the judges...but the down side is I don't get to sample very much. I did introduce myself to the table of judges that I'm a cook too and that brought about some good discussion. One judge asked why we brine the chicken and another asked about keeping the meat hot in the box.

Chicken - Our table got 6 entries. 4 were thighs, 1 was drums, 1 was drums with thigh attached. All looked great in the box. The drum/thigh combo was a little cramped and I was thinking around a 7 for an appearance score but the judges were more generous than that. Since all of the boxes had only 6 pieces I didn't get a sample. The consensus was that all 6 entries were way above average.

Ribs - Again we got 6 entrees. 5 boxes were spares with just 6 bones and one box had 12 baby backs in it. All of the bones were on the small size and were arranged side by side verses last week when all of the boxes had stacked bones.

I don't understand why cooks don't put more than 6 ribs in a box when there is room. I'm not asking this just so that the TC or volunteers get a rib. A full just just looks better plus we had a judge drop his rib, which hit the ground, as he took it out of the box. Luckily for him it was the box of 12 baby backs so he got to select another.

Overall the ribs scored well but not great.

Pork - Only 5 entries. All had money muscle. 4 boxes had chunks too and one was MM plus pulled. Presentation was great on all boxes. Only 2 had more than 6 pieces of MM so I got to try them. One was good and one was awesome! The judges scores reflected that they really liked the one that I would have scored as a 9.

Brisket - Only 5 entries. All slices and 2 had burnt ends. I got to try 2 of the boxes but no BE's. I thought it was just "OK". Scored were just "middle of the road" for all of them.

Well that's it for this weekend. Next weekend I'll be competing at Kennesaw, GA so judges/cooks/or anyone else...if you are there stop on by and say "Hi".

I take some pics and then do a "cooks report" for the event.
