I am now a member of the Crapshoot BBQ cooking team out of Houston, Texas. I never gave any thought at all about comp cooking as I have a backyard cooker. The Crapshoot team has been Craig "Texana" Sharry the owner of Texas Pepper Jelly and his Partner Doug Dennin "BBQ Doug". Well Doug is retiring to the Phillipines next year. I mentioned to Texana that I'd love to be part of the team after Doug retires and he basically said "Great, lets start at the humble Rodeo BBQ in two weeks". :shock: :-D So here I go. I'm really looking forward to it. :-D

Thanks all, I think it will be a blast.

Jorge, Crapshoot won't be at the HLSR, but I plan to go lend a hand behind the scenes with the Texas BBQ Rub crew at some point. Probably Saturday but I'll let you know what day I'm going. We can wander the grounds with some cold beer and keep all the cowgirls safe from harm. :rolleyes:
