for a contest in Missouri. I am not bragging, just laying the foundation - We have been pretty succesful in a short period of time (1 GC @ 60 Team Contest, Top 10 OA at 4 others, for a total of 17 calls / ribbons / trophy's in 9 contests over 2.5 years. I think we have some good info to share, but also need some help. Our ribs and brisket are generally good, chicken sporadioc and pork just misses the boat. Our scores are a bit scattered and I would really like to cook with an experienced team.

The paid class thing does not appeal to me. I want to share info as much as gain it. We cook every week catering, but are looking to improve the contest scores a bit. Who's going to Hermann?

I am looking to cook with someone who has had some limited success, and hopefully we can feed off of each other. I'm not looking to "steal any secrets". Heck, what I do is an open book if I could cook with someone else.

I think what drives me, is that I have NEVER cooked with another team. This whole crazy thing started as a whim, selling Q at a buddies conveneince store. We got a 4th in ribs at our first contest (70 teams) and were hooked on contests. I think what I need is a benchmark to make sure we are on the right track in our the continued refinement of our recipes and processes.

I'm real confident in my catering abilities, just not so much this year at contests.

Talk to Andy (HoDeDo), we are doing Hermann with Jeff from "Bubba & Jeff".
I don't know if they would need any help cooking, but I'm sure they wouldn't mind having you hang out. I will tell him to get on when he gets home.

Pending approval from my social director. Actually, I'm going to see if we can leave one or both of the boys with Grandma and Grandpa so she can join.

True, because I gave them all to you.


Jeff - Wife liked the idea of going to Hermann, MO. We'll bring the camper, you bring the pit.

Hopefully your Lauren is young enough she never reads the fact that dad is trying to trick grandma so he can unload his daughter for a weekend of playing with fire and drinking with some of his internet friends...
