This weekend is the AZBBQA yearly event known as Hoof & Foot. It is basically a 'chicken and ribs and anything but' informal contest organized by the local association.

Some folks camp out over Friday night, however we just show up before dawn Saturday and have plenty of time to get things going. It is cold in the desert in January.

Point of this post was:

to publicly thank the host and organizers of this 'event'
to produce some good karma for my team (can we improve on our lucky 2nd place ribs from last year?)
and to say that I will miss Mr. Smoker and his new spice twins.

Don't think I have heard whether he will be there or not. I know he is planning for Rio Rancho NM in March like we are.

SBD's would have bene better than what we turned in.

Did not have our A game. Not sure there is a letter to describe our game, come to think of it.

I think 4 teams ended up showing up to cook. Like 18 last year. 2nds and 3rds aren't so great with 4 groups participating.

G$...

You should have come over to the other side where we were set up... I didnt even see you guys over there! We did a lame-a$$ job of advertising and promoting the contest, so that is why the turnout was lame.

Here's the 2nd place ribs.... They were some of the best I have ever made but not good enough! Ken Hunting (One Smoke Over The Line), formerly Gourmet Grills, a Traeger dealer, won Grand Champion. Getting beat by Ken is nothing to be ashamed of.... he can cook and has been doing this a long time.

Yeah Glen, we got there early in the am and did not want to make noise as we set up. Figured it would fill up like last year anyway. When Aaron said participation would be low and the area would not fill in, our fire was started and we couldn't very well move!

We made forays to the camp as time permitted.

Ribs look great. Ours were over done.
