The wife and I went to our first q comp up near Buffalo today and had a great time. Being a noob, I wanted to taste what q is supposed to taste like. Had some chicken, brisket, pulled pork, ribs, spinach and feta fatty's, Moinks, all excellent. To top it off they had 2 beer tents, one with blues playing and one with rock playing, both sounded great with a full belly. We walked around the cook area, shot the chit with some brethren, sorry it took me slow long to figure out what I was missing, you folks are awesome. :-D

Your post sums it all up. You can tell when people post here without ever having a brethren experience. You just don't get it until you get it.

Yeah yer hooked! Before long you will be competing and chasing them GC's.
Comps are a lot of fun. I would get into judging. We have done so much better since we started judging comps also rather than trying to cook them all.

That is how I got hooked, minus the brethren experience. I didn't know about the bbq-brethren until after I started getting into cooking. Next comp I do, I need to make sure that I take some time to go and introduce myself to some of the great folks who show up. Nice to put some faces to the names... :D

Glad you had a great time at the WNY BBQ & Music Festival (aka Boston Hills BBQ Festival). It's a great comp and festival.

Would have liked to have met you Budman1. Next time stop in and say Hi!

Thanks! I actually met the team that earned reserve champ, priorvile, turns out they live less than 2 miles from me, from the small town of Bennington,NY. very cool.:thumb: (now all I have to do is weasel my way in to help them out at a few comps) I see tonawanda and springwater still on the list, I hope to hit those as well.
My brother lives up towards you, blvd & sheridan, he bought a smoker last year, we try to out do each other at family get togethers, so, yeah, I see a new team in the future.
