Well.... we are cooking 20 butts for a benefit on Saturday. A young lady that went to church with us passed away suddenly leaving newborn twins and a husband behind. The benefit is for the twins. The next Saturday is the Wilson Co Fair in Lebanon, TN. We may give that one a whirl. Overall it's about spending time with my boys and that's a good thing no matter what I'm doing.

I didn't think that I would ever compete either. The backyard comps don't necessarily go by kcbs rules. This one was sponsored by a local restaurant and the judges were the kitchen staff who work at the restaurant. In my opinion they judged it with the criteria that they would use in the restaurant. In other words, what tastes good and how's the appearance of the food.

It's a fun day that I would do again. My two sons are taking orders during the week and cooking whole butts on Friday nights for Saturday delivery which made this excellent exposure for their business.
