Fat Angle BBQ 4th >>>>>1st Brisket

I couldn't be prouder of my former teammates. Loren (niece), Steve (Loren"s squeeze) and Scott (Steve's home boy). This is their first KCBS contest on their own and 4th out of 61 is some dam fine cooking.

Just got back... Excellent contest & very well run.

A ton of top notch teams...Came in 30th overall out of 66.. with just under a 602 total.

27th chicken
23 ribs,
49th pork (thought it was by far my best entry of the day go figure..)
Tied for 15th in brisket

Although only made the top half overall, I was extremely pleased with how all of my entries turned out and thought it was my best overall effort to date although the scores were to the contrary... The Spicewine worked extremely well.

SmokeInDaEye was an excellent teammate and made a great smoked crabcake that took 13th in Anything Butt. Sledneck was a big help too although he cooked with Nancee & Greg of the Purple Turtles.. Thank you to both....

We cooked next to Chis (Ique) who got a perfect 180 score on Anything Butt with a killer surf and turf combo dish but came in 24th overall (goes to show how tough a field this was !!!!! ) Great job anyway Chris.. and thanks for your help. We also cooked next to Ron (pigheaded) who took 7th in chicken and 3rd in Anything Butt. I think Steve (YankeeBBQ) took 5th overall under I Smell Smoke.. Got too see many other brethren not noted above as well(DJmarko who judged, Lunchlady, Nitrofly,)....


AND A SPECIAL THANKS TO POOBAH FOR CALLING ME REPEATEDLY ON MY CELL PHONE BETWEEN 1:20 and 1:30 during brisket turn ins !!!! :twisted: Seems his watch was a bit too fast and thought it was after 1:30 when he called..

Wow, what an experience. This was my first competition on my own and I had some good help. My son in law Mike, nephew Brian and his best friend Rob. What a learning experience! I was next to Vinny and two away from Chris. I met a lot of Brethren (Clint,Sledneck,Chris,Lunchlady,Nancy) and others I'm forgetting at this moment. I had a great time and I'm definitly hooked. I don't think I've ever been as tired as last night when I got home and unloaded the trailer. I want to thank Todd (Plowboy) for his rub and my first walk (7th in chicken). I came in 19th overall, 7 in chicken,46 ribs,18 pork,30 brisket, 3 chefs choice and 29 Perdue Chicken. I will remember this experience forever. The event was run well and the organizers couldn't have been nicer.

This was a great contest. Nothing beats cooking and hanging out with brethren. I pit bitched for purple turtle. Congrats to them for the 4th place pork. I cooked the perdue chicken award friday night and came in 13th. Its was great seeing and meeting pigheaded, i que, yankee, lunch lady. It was a little strange not being drunk but i had an awesome time regardless. Friday night overnite was cooooooold! Congrats to pigheaded( beginners luck:biggrin: ) ique, lunch lady and yankee for the walks. I am definately gonna cook this event next year. Thank you vinnie for driving. Was a great road trip to and fro, lots of laughs.

It was a ton of fun doing some cooking, but also getting to relax and talk to folks. I don't get to do much of that when cooking on my own. I too thought Vinny's entries turned out great, especially learning the Spicewine's temp control under pressure.

As for the grilling entries I did, I discovered that I left everything for the Purdue chicken contest in my fridge at home so had to improvise on the fly. Didn't work out to well, but it looked nice! The smoked crabcakes turned out great and brought in 2 9-9-9s, but Chris had 9s across the board so whatcha gonna do?

Friday night was brutal when the temp dropped but the two days couldn't be beat. Lunchlady, Scully, Nancee, Greg, IQue, Pig Headed, etc. were a ton of fun, and I discovered ash rub.:twisted:

Here's pix of the turn-ins. Sorry about the pork. I had to shoot it upside down because of the sun glare.

Must warm your heart Rich to see your former apprentice do so well in his first contest. That new Meadow Creek of his is sweet.

It was great to see all the Brethren, I had a blast despite bombing my bbq entries. I'll be in Norfolk next weekend, if any Brethren are attending swing by for a cold Harpoon.

Sticking with those drummies, eh Vinny?

The supermarket made the decision for me on Thurs. evening... I was gonna buy some thighs in addition to the drumsto see how it goes but they only had boneless,skinless thighs so I passed... I'm gonna continue sticking with the drumsticks long term... Much easier to cook, hardly any time to trim and I don't think they impact the scoring...

These were my chicken scores :

Appearance : 9,9,8,8,8 and one 7 which was dropped.
Taste: 8,8,8,7,6 and another 6 which was dropped
Tenderness: 9,8,8,7,7 and a 6 which was dropped

Hey gang.....this is Brian.....I cooked with my uncle, Ron (Pigheaded), for this comp. I must say, I had a BLAST! I live near New Holland, Pa and have attended some of the comps there, just as a spectator, and assisted my uncle in Dover, when he cooked with another team, last October. I have to say, I am hooked. It was great to meet everyone and see some of their rigs. Vinny....those sausages you hooked us up with Fri night were awesome......and I'm not one for spicy food. I ended up assisting as "Pit Bitch" and "Garnish Artist Extrodianaire". Definately need some work on getting the garnish right, but that will only come with practice. The funny thing is that I thought the worst turn-in box that I prepped was in Chicken and that was one of the best scores that we got in everything from tenderness and taste to appearance...I guess the taste of the chicken really pulled the wool over the eyes of the judges on that one. Anyways, it was great meeting everyone and I can't thank my uncle enough for the experience and look forward to helping him throughout the year.

Here are the Fat Angel picture from Salisbury.

And Steve's comments.

This past Friday, we packed up and headed to Salisbury, Md for the Pork in the Park competition. It was our first KCBS competition with our new Meadow Creek Smoker and under our new team name Fat Angel BBQ. Loren and I are arrived around noon and set up the site. We were happy to be close to Chris from IQue and Vinny from Bad Bones BBQ. Scott arrived around 3 and we prepped all the meat. When we got our Perdue chickens, we rubbed them with some of the Dizzy Pig's finest rub. Then it was onto the chef’s choice where we tried to replicate Rich's coconut shrimp. We managed to screw it up and finished 30th. I now know how valuable Jeff is to Lost Nation. After the turn-ins, we got to enjoy some of our sponsor, Magic Hat’s fine beer with Chris from Dizzy Pig and Hillard from Free Range (I think Hillard is a converted customer). It was nice to see Dean Ayers, Steve Polson, and Steve Farrin. We were very happy to meet Tuffy and have a good conversation with him about different techniques of BBQ. Man can that guy cook - he just rolls in, dominates and rolls out…sounds like some cool smoke to me.

Scott was on the first round of manning the pit and he bundled up outside. I went to the car for few hours and woke up shivering; the next few hours were spent with the car running and the heat cranking. Scott decided to stay outside and almost freeze. After thawing out in the morning, we got our meat in our boxes and in on time. We then cracked a celebratory Fat Angel as it was the first time we have put all 4 KCBS categories in the boxes. I thought our chicken turned out great, ribs and pork ok, and I thought our brisket was dry and didn’t look good in the box. With 60 teams competing, we were just hoping for one call at the awards ceremony. When they began, we heard the recurring name of Cool Smoke; Tuffy walked in all 4 categories and won his 3rd GC of the year…Congrats Tuffy. After 39 awards without a call, we were pleasantly surprised to come home with a 1st place call in brisket; it was the first time we had ever cooked brisket on the new smoker. We were then even more surprised to see that we finished 4th overall against some pretty stiff competition. Our team really came together this weekend with Loren making sure we stuck to the schedule and with Scott being one heck of a co-pitmaster.

Congrats to Lunchmeat on a very impressive 3rd overall finish, to IQue for the perfect 180 in Chef’s Choice, to 3Eyz BBQ for winning the Maryland State Championship award and to Ribs Within for winning the Perdue chicken award with a chicken egg roll that wowed the judges. Thanks to Sandy Fulton - the Pork in the Pork festival is one of the best competitions of the year. The weather finally decided to cooperate and Saturday was in the Mid 70s. It was great to see everyone at the contest and look forward to seeing everyone again soon

Thanks to everyone for the congrats. We thought we may have tanked it since we just got the one call - 4th place brisket. This is the second time in three years that we have placed third at Pork In The Park. Maybe next year they will just call out third place from the stage... with the impressive slate of teams and the larger number of them, I think third should get some recognition. Maybe I'm just a 'stage-hog', that could be true too.
I just LOVE this event, Sandy Fulton is the bestest, the grounds are beautiful and the rest of the festival is way too much fun to miss! They really go over and above to make competitors feel welcome and everything you need that you may have forgot at home is right nearby. We stayed over Saturday night this year, and it was MUCH better than trying to drive out and 'hotel it' late night somewhere in NJ. That will be the lunchmeat plan (meal plan? heheh) from now on I think.

Congrats to Fat Angel, I screamed my head off for you guys. You're scaring me now... but I'm thinking if I change my name to Michelle Decker I just may get that First Place Brisket in Salisbury yet....

iQue's first place Anything But 180 pin should NOT go unnoticed. That is FANTASTIC!!!

Pigheaded - way to go with yer first event! AND you hooked another one. Glad to have Brian in the loop.

All the North East teams did well somewhere and I am SO proud to be one of the gang!

Sorry that I didn't get out to chat as much as I would have liked to with more of my Brethren. To those who I did get to hang with...it was my pleasure. To those I may have missed this time - see ya next time!

The other thing I wanted to mention is that the actual scores are the key here, NOT where you placed number-wise. Some of these categories were so close... overall the top 32 teams got in the 600's...that's sometimes enough to win a competition anywhere else.

ciao fer now~
