I would post results, but I'm damn tired! A hundred thousand thanks to the host with the most, C Rocke, his wonderful family, and all the neighbors. The Lemon Sorbet was awesome!! Really hit the spot on a beautiful So Cal day. Congrats on the trophies and a job well done. Oh dang, the Jalp Fattie...mmmmmmm!

It was a pleasure to meet a whole new family and a damn nice bunch of folks. Congrats to everyone and thanks for making my first event a very successful learning experience (especially you, BigMista). I'll see y'all at the next shin dig!

Man...did I have a great time! Meet new teams and people, see 1st time competitors taking walks, that is what I think the CBBQA is about, promoting BBQ! The Rocke family, we thank you so much for opening up your home and to your neighbors for being so accomadating! To our truly Outstanding judges, who not only gave their time, but took the time to share comments both written and verbal to the teams, this personaly is greatly appreciated!

I am ready for the next one!

I agree. First, I'm tired. Second...Brothers out there, you could not meet nicer folks than what we have going on here in this fourm, and in So. Cali. We had so much fun spreading the love of BBQ and fellowship. (I'm talking religious). I am deeply impressed by the dedication to cooking and the true brotherhood, in what we love to do, expressed in the family that was present there today (redundant).

The best way to summ up what I was a part of was: Fun. Friends. Professionalism. Hospility.

And some folks will have bragging rights!:mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Kick the Tires and Light the Fires was a lot of fun. It was great hanging out with brothers, their families and the CBBQA clan. From the time we arrived, the whole day was filled smoke, meat, laughter and fellowship.

When I arrived, I found out that the spots had been changed and we were situated between the Huntington Beach Boys (Single Fin and CountryHB). Funny how they were asking me bunches of questions and ended up kicking my butt!

I want to send out a couple of thanks. First to Kelly McIntosh our KCBS Rep for bringing some wonderful Apple Smoked Bacon that I used to make some pig candy. Everybody loved it!

Second, I want to thank Leanza for coming out make some awesome Tri-Tip Tacos!

I loved it with the spicy tomatillo salsa!

One of the good things about a backyard contest is being able to try out new things. Since I don't usually cook chicken or ribs at a contest I was really flying by the seat of my pants. I decided to get creative. I learned that judges don't care for new ideas like this:

http://lh4.google.com/bigmista/RrY6k5BG8OI/AAAAAAAAAH4/ABbJjVgQ4V4/P1000035_640x480.JPG?imgmax=512

Funny though, how all of my chicken disappeared. Couldn't even find a piece to bring home to MrsMista.

This was definitely a day for Newbies. gstanle, Brian_in_Socal, CountryHB an Single Fin Smoker all did a great job. I'm really proud of them.

I amazed and overwhelmed by CRocke and the Rocke family and their neighbors for allowing us to invade their cul-de-sac. We appreciate their hospitality.

No disrespect to Country, he's a biggen and I do not want to be pummeled, his had excellent smoke flavor and it was very good, I just like the way you did yours! We are judging at the next one!

Seriously, I'm a backyard man(you know the type with beer), this whole competition thing is still way the fark over my head. Rules and turn in times create too much confusion in whats left of my dwindling gray matter(this is where Bently helps fin out).

I'm still tired, and my neck got burnt to a crisp. What a blast. Without the help of Bigmista's expert tutilage I would have never been able to take part in this. 2 of the Four Q's provided and excellent education for me. Sylive could teach a class on container presentation. What a learning experience. They are a well oiled machine.

I still can't believe my food was eaten by.......judges. Reading those coment cards was a trip. To me it was no so much a competition as it was a gathering of some nice people making some damn good Q, as well as chance to hang out with my brother Neil.

Big mahalos to cRocke & family, his neighbors, the judges, and the rest of the participants. Special thanks to Country for showin up with his double barrel smoker and making me laugh my ass off.

Lastly, my apple pie is DAMN GOOD!

http://www.ocregister.com/columns/columnist/frank.mickadeit.jpg FRANK MICKADEIT
Register columnist

My ongoing and quite remarkable treatise on the art of tri-tip BBQ has drawn the attention of the California BBQ Association and I was asked to help judge one of its events this past weekend in Garden Grove. If there's a higher calling I've never heard it.

This involved months of back-and-forth between me and Chris Rocke, who would be hosting. I also received an e-mail from a Mr. Bentley Meredith, requesting that I declare the judging criteria I intended to use. He also kindly gave me the first of what would be many warnings: You will be judging up to 40 pieces of meat. Do not under any circumstances attempt to eat any one piece in its entirety.

Rocke's home was about as hard to find as a five-alarm fire. The smoke was visible before I even turned down Bartlett Street. As I came to his block, a classic '50s-era neighborhood of single-story ranch-style houses, there ringing the cul-de-sac before me in all its Pleasant Valley beauty were nine BBQ stations, most with more than one BBQ or smoker going. Every stray dog in north county had to be headed our way.

At each station, two or three men (and a few women) were busy stoking the fire, turning or basting meat or, mainly, to be honest, drinking beer. The whole cul-de-sac seemed to be involved even if involved simply meant sitting in a lawn chair, sampling BBQ and drinking beer.

The judges meeting began at 12:30. The other 12 were Certified Judges of the CBBQA and had come from as far as San Francisco. There'd be four categories: Chicken, Tri-tip, Ribs and Anything But meaning anything but the other three. It could be another cut or even a dessert.
We were to rate each piece on a 1-9 scale on three criteria: taste, tenderness/texture and appearance. Appearance is the "Wow!" factor. "If this piece were on a buffet, is it the first one I'd want to eat," is how one judge described his ideal 9. A "1" is a piece that's been disqualified for violating some rule. A "2" is "inedible." I couldn't imagine what that might be.

At 1 p.m., the judges were sequestered at tables in Rocke's garage and the chicken began arriving. Each piece came in its own white Styrofoam container. I opened the first box. A beautiful warm thigh, golden brown with streaks of russet-colored sauce, just waiting for that first bite and Uh-oh. What's that? A hair? A hair!
Now I knew what was meant by "inedible." I gamely plucked the hair from the thigh's perfect skin. Well, it was a small hair, no more than a half-inch long. I put it aside, gave the piece a 3 on appearance and moved on. I now also knew what was meant by "liberal judge."

The chicken went fast. I hewed closely as possible to the admonition: Just one bite per piece or you'll never make it.

One judge, a woman from Encinitas, told me that, as in wine tasting, some judges do not swallow the sample. But she requested, "If you are going to be spitting out, be very discreet." Thanks, ma'am, because throughout the afternoon I'd planned to build a mountain of masticated meat on the table next to me. Sheesh. I only come from Lompoc, not the Pleistocene epoch.

But some of the chicken was so good, I had to have that second bite. Only one time did I succumb. They started bringing us tri-tip a half-hour later and I went through all that no problem. In fact, after 18 samples, I was still hungry. Next came the ribs. I was munching along just fine, writing down my scores with a smile, when on about my fifth rib, I hit the wall.

Bloated. Slightly nauseous. Head not right. Time standing still. Two minutes for each rib to make its way from the table to my mouth. Sloooooooww-motion chewing. Slumped back in my chair. Look down at floor. Large puddle forming under my feet. My God! Am I hallucinating, or have I just soiled myself?

Turns out neither. Someone outside had dumped some water in the wrong place and it was leaking into the garage. Whew. I somehow made it through the rest of the ribs and the Anything But category, which included an amazing peach cobbler a guy had cooked in a Dutch oven over coals.

The meats I judged best overall were smoked by a 35-year-old Huntington Beach man named Brian "Country" Zalewski, a former bouncer who's now a logistics guy for Washington Mutual. It was his first competition. He smoked with oak and used Santa Maria-style seasonings. The 12 real judges? They didn't have him in their top three. They obviously have a lot to learn.

Got back in from Flagstaff late last nite, but wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who made it such a great Saturday!. We loved having everyone over, and further convinces the neighbors that I do bring some legitimate value (And cholesterol) to the neighborhood.

Thanks to the Meredith family for their organizational and legal expertise - But the "brains" of the operation is Mrs. Meredith! She is a fantastice baker, and not bad on a skateboard either!

Thanks to Kelly and all the judges - To have so many certified judges at a backyard comp was a real treat for everyone!

Also, thanks to Frank Mickadeit from the OC Register. He had that deer in the headlights look when he showed up, and a glazed "Christmas full" look as he drove off after his judging stint with us.

I know I've missed someone, but from my family and myself, thanks for another great day!

I would bet my bottem dollar this was from a sauce brush and not a hair!

Just one bite per piece or you'll never make it.

Alright Country, your famous now:-D I actually got to sample some of his ribs after he got back home that night and they were tasty.

The reporter gave me the wine for the best anything But, Which was my Peach cobbler. He also gave me the cuervo for the best tri tip.

The judges gave me first in chicken. I must say I enjoyed that pie. It was the best Apple pie I have ever had.

On another note. The judges gave me 8th in anything but and 6th in Tri tip. Shows the difference between a reporter and the judges.:-D

But I had a blast for my first comp.

You usually don't get to compare 1st places against your stuff in competitions. I know my sisters Carrot Cake was good, very good, but I can say with no qualms, I tasted Fin's Anything Butt and it was better!

May I have the recipe please, if you say no I understand compelety, I would not share it either! :twisted:
