I did my first comp this past weekend, the Evergreen State BBQ Championship at Alki Beach in Seattle. I have a lot of practicing to do to get in shape for next year! My goal was to have fun and not come in last place, I came in 28th out of 34 teams and I did it solo and on the UDS's!

I had fun and didn't come in last! Thanks go out to Ty and Debbie (GC's), Madhatter (RGC) Goldbar Bob and CrackerJacks for keeping my spirits up and JD for helping me set up. Hopefully he will post some comp pics!

Way to go! Hope you are hooked, looked like a great location, heard it rained. We had a CBBQA member Smitty's Smoke Patrol that was competing, wonder how he did?

It is indeed a mailbox! Here is a pic of it I took a few months back at the Paul Kirk Cooking Class. I'll try to get in touch with Goldbar Bob and see if he'll clue us all in on it!
