Trucky1008 and I, Trucky9754 from Pork Patrol BBQ competed in "Up In Smoke On The Square" down in Lincoln, Illinois this weekend. We met a bunch of great teams and made some real good friends down there. I want to congratulate B&B BBQ & Catering for your Grand Champion and Gilly's BBq for Reserve. I also want to thank Chris Graue and his entire crew for putting on an excellent event. The people of Lincoln proved to be very polite individuals and we well be joining you guys again next year.
Pork Patrol BBQ got two walks yesterday in Chicken and Ribs so we were pretty excited about this. There were a bunch of great teams down there and I am sure this new event will only grow larger in the future.

Great to meet you on Friday evening, although, my memory of Friday is a little fuzzy......That's what I get for hanging out with Dennis Keck.......

Congratulations to all the Brethren that walked. Special kudos to Jeff for Grand and Gil for Resreve, outstanding job against a tough field.

Congrats also to Jim and Erin for their first place in both Chicken and Pork, Tim for first place in Ribs and Gil for first place in Brisket.

It was a well organized operation and a fun contest to judge. I enjoyed visiting with you all and look forward to the next time I see you, wherever that's going to be.
