"During breaks, the students hobnobbed with the competition barbecuers who prepared the meat for the class: Phil Rizzardi, who competes for Barbecue Brethren, a Long Island team, and Nancee Gell of Norwalk, Conn., whose team, representing Purple Turtle Catering, won top prize at Grillin' on the Bay in Brooklyn in March. It was the first competition in New York City sanctioned by the New England Barbecue Society, which follows Kansas City Barbecue Society rules.
Mr. Rizzardi said later that he was a little dubious about the class. A grease fire did in the ribs, he said, but that did not keep many students from awarding top marks. No experience beyond the class is required for certification.

"It kind of concerns me!" Mr. Rizzardi said. "These are our future judges of America."

The ribs, overcooked and charred, didn't go unnoticed by a few competitors who were among the student body, hoping to glean what judges are looking for."



I didn't get a mention, but at least Grillin' on the Bay did.

Maybe a grease fire is the secret. Feedback from the party I catered Sunday after salvaging the baby backs and briskets from my grease fire in the 'dera were very positive. My customer told me I should expect more business as a result of his party!
