Gorgeous weekend--a bit chilly in the 70's but we all survived :redface:
Great to see all the SE teams, and some "Heavy Hitters" from up North, enjoying the brisk Fl Weather .
The crowds were totally amazing-- barely room to walk--vendors were exhausted and sold out by mid afternoon on Sat with mega-tons of ribs and stuff sold! I know Jimmy (Smokin' Cracker) and Mike (WoodHouse) were just looking for a place to crash :grin:
The BackYard and Kid's Que were bigger than many sanctioned events.
A team (sorry about not remembering the name) in Backyard scored 180 on Brisket! And the "thrown out low score" was.....9-9-9 :grin: Fantastic job by them and a rarity! They have a "perfect 180" pin to go with their GC and 1st in Brisket awards. Too kewl!!!
I had the pleasure of eating/judging a lot of "very good" BBQ, some "excellent" BBQ, and some "WTF" BBQ, but very little of the WTF variety for once :lol: The quality was mostly good or better and a real pleasure to judge.
Spent time with Brother JohnMc***. Great individual with a nice family. He will be cooking with us in 2 weeks at Winter Haven. I think he is almost ready to go to "the Dark Side" of BBQ :lol:

This is one to put on the calendar if you are in the area.

Great report, Tim! Sounds like a lot of fun. But 70's was chilly? Oh man! Congrats to the Brethren teams! And especially to Ray for finishing so high in that TOUGH field of teams. There's some great names on that list!

Thanks Jeff. Lakeland is one of the top couple contests anywhere, bar none. The city is totally supportive and it will only get better.
On top of everything else, it's run by The Junior League, which is comprised of all hot women.
