Well Eric--you jumped right in with the Big Boys at Kings Mountain!
Nothing wrong with those numbers for a first event, for sure!
The brisket will come to you with practice.

Stop into Cattle Call and introduce yourself to the Brethren.
Glad to have you here.

See you there! 14 teams have signed up looking for that magic 15 or above. Can't wait to meet all the new teams this year and have that same kinda blast.

These BBQ contests are like a narcotic. One contest and you are hooked. I am also a BBQ Contest Junkie and love every minute of it. I can tell that you do too.

I have to say that's gutsy going to your first comp and never having done a brisket... and then not coming in last (next to last isn't last!). Good luck on your next one!
