Well the Four Q BBQ Team will be participating at the Beachfront Barbecue Cookoff at Imperial Beach, CA this coming weekend. Are there any brethren that will be competing or attending?

Looking back, this is the location of the first BBQ contest I ever attended. It is also where I first met some brethren in person. MrsMista and I drove down to support Bigmofo300lbs, Mook and Hornbri.

Memories...

I am cooking brisket, Professor Salt is cooking ribs and Sylvie is cooking Pork. Since BBQJunkie can't make it, we will be sharing duties on the chicken. Sylvie is prepping the chicken and we will be using her sauce. I will be in charge of the seasoning. Professor Salt will handle the cooking.

Those were jalapeno cheese sausages. My teammate got hold of them somewhere in Orange County.

Our next contest isn't until next April. How the hell do you people survive the winter without competing?

Mista, heck I beat the heck outta the gasser and the Cookshack in the dead of winter here in Michigan. Ive done some big amounts of butts, like several cases for my dearest of friends for parties. Dont do that no more cause Im up for like 3 to 4 days in my polebarn. I have a powervent in the roof for the smoke but its so difficult to keep things at the proper temperature. Therefore the gasser for steaks and the CS for other things like ribs and butts.
