View Full Version : Our First Walk - Hermann MO

09-30-2007, 10:01 AM
Well, second competition and we got our first walk...and our second. Not in a KCBS category, but we walked 4th in Sauce competition just behind Jay (Spicewine/Team Q) and to our shock we took 1st in the Anything But competition with some sweet turds.

Unfortunately other than our 11th in pork (50 teams) we did pretty dismal. 20 something in chicken and we were in the bottom of the barrel in ribs and brisket. But we knew we had farked both those up. Put us in a disappointing 40th overall.

But still...minus the whole KCBS category we did pretty good. Guess we'll only have to go to non KCBS category comps from now on!

Had a blast at Hermann, great to see some faces again and meet some guys for the first time, Kick, Todd, Jay, the Belly Brothers to name a few. We had a great time and are looking forward to next season.

Good to meet you too Neil! Glad you was able to be set up next to the Walz' team. They are great people, that Marlie is a hoot! And they were cheering very loudly (as we all were) when they heard your team name "Pork Pistols" called.

We made our own sauce. Only problem was we forgot the base mix at home and we had to make it up on the spot. So we aren't exactly sure what we put in it! Figures. Oh and thanks York for the Worcestire!
