Competing in Bel Air this weekend. My teammate John got bitten by a Brown Recluse a few days back and appears to be out for the count. He normally cooks the brisket. As a result I'll be cooking my first comp brisket. His wife normally builds our boxes and she'll be out as well. Fun times ahead for me.

Good luck, hope his spider bite heals fast.

Best of luck, seems like the beginning to a story that ends with you getting some calls. Sometimes, when everything appears to be going wrong, good things happen.

Keith, we're not competing this weekend (I've got a catering for Mr. Bean's office party) and Dean is always chomping at the bit to compete, maybe he can help you...he's coming off a 3rd place brisket finish in Bluemont. If you want me to put you in touch with him, email me at brnwlr at aol dot com.

Best of luck and best wished for John to get over that brown recluse spider bite, them are nasty little SOBs and quite dangerous if not treated correctly and promptly.

I'd say a shot of tequila to calm his nerves... If you guys have any to spare...

Get em, Keith. It can be done, I do 80% of my comps solo.

Sure. I few racks of ribs, about 10 thighs, some pork, and a few slices of brisket ought to fill the bill:grin:
Thanks, if I need something I'll swing by.

So we got 2 calls (yeah, brisket was a train wreck though), but even better John is doing well. He even came to hang out for a few hours on Saturday. Thanks for all the get well wishes for him.
