Looking forward to seeing everybody again! We'll be travelling a bit lighter than last time due to the short deadline to tear down and get out. I think we were the last ones out of Westmont!

Thanks, Bubba! Not that I am being picky, but it's Captain Ron's Brew-n-Que. They called our name wrong all day. But at least hey were calling our name!

Big congrats to Ron and Tonto!
Ron-were you able to carry that grill back with that huge trophy in your hand?

It was a little hard to steer with the trophy and very had to steer with the Kettle on my lap :-D

I don't remember too many of the details and I am still in shock, but here is what I remember. Tonto or Bud can fill in some of the blanks...

GC - Iowa Smokey D's BBQ (Darrin and family form the Smokin' Clones)
RGC - Us! R-farking G-farking C!
3rd - The Smokin' Scotsmen

Congrats to Bud and Theresa on three or for walks (I lost count) and third place!

We also took 7th in chicken, 4th in ribs and 1st in Brisket! My pork was over cooked so we tanked there.

Besides the trophy and cash the RGC included a Weber One Touch Silver (just what I need, another grill :-D) and I think I remember someone saying that we received a free entry into the same comp next year.

Hopefully someone with more energy will post the full results. There were other Brethren present, both cooking and judging. The Two Skinny Cooks (Dann and Diane) were there as well as Billm and Scotty and we got to meet Zabor and his wife.

congrats to all and special congrats to Walt and Theresa. Now if you can just learn to cook chicken. I'd suggest helping me at Goshen but so far the folks that have helped me still can't cook chicken. :biggrin:

WAIT - Why not bring the FE and try chicken in it. Eagle- 1st, WAMAC - 1st, Fairbanks - 1st, Ft Atkinson - 1st, GAB Invite 28th, GAB Open 23rd. Not a bad year so far using the FE for chicken.

Thanks Ron, you guys did a very nice job!

We're a bit bummed. We thought we were way more relaxed and prepared on our second comp, but the results showed we did quite a bit worse, in fact, we achieved (?) a DAL for Chicken. I made a pretty big mistake during prep, so didn't really think it was a huge surprise. At least if the judges didn't like our stuff, the Elk Grove coppers sure did!

We were dissapointed that our other entries, particularly our ribs didn't do better. Oh well, at least our fellow competitors like our apple pie shots!

But, we didn't come home with nothing....got a really nice sunburn, and a pretty good second degree burn on my leg from getting just a little to close to our rib cooker....then fell backwards onto the handle of one of our bullet domes....Ouch!!!:mad: Oh well, at least we have a custom handle mod for future comps!

BUT, wanted to say what a great time we had despite some odd hiccups along the way!

To all our neighbors, and many of our new freinds, thanks so much for treating us so nicely!

Walt and Theresa (Smokin' Scotsmen) thanks, as always, for your kind words!

Ron (and also all that walked) Congrats and huge props on your walk(s)

Seth, thanks for the advice Friday night, we will take much of what you said to heart.

Scotty, thanks so much for allowing me to participate in the Saturday morning ritual, and also for allowing my neice the interview 15 minutes before chicken was due! It was very generous of you given the circumstances, and I hope it didn't cause you a problem with your chicken scores!

Rick, from smoke hunters. Rob, and all the guys from BearCat smokers, it was great having you as neighbors.

I'm thinking we may cook, rather than judge Shannon after all...what the hell, if we're going to drive all the way out there, may as well make an event of it!!! Will have to see if our schedule allows it!

For the hell of it, I'm posting our pron for the event. Be gentle, it's only our second comp! (and yes, I forgot to sauce the damn pork!)

Anyway, thanks to everyone for the help and encouragement. If we take home no awards, we still have some very good memories. (Not to mention a sunburn and a pretty nasty 2nd degree leg burn!)

See everyone next time!!!
Dann and Diane

Oh, here's the pron... http://s300.photobucket.com/albums/nn21/2SkinnyCooks/

I'm sorry about your leg, Dann! I'm sure that hurt like crazy. It was great o see you and Diane and I am glad that you are going to cook at Shannon. It's a strong field, but it is a great competition and a lot of fun. We'll see you there!

Oh... And thank Diane for her late night visit with her "little blue bag of fun" :rolleyes: (at least I think the bag was blue...).

Thanks Ron! I just emailed Mike Lake to see if we're too late. Their site seems to be down.

Yes, the bag was blue, and Di says you're welcome! She enjoyed making freinds and sharing libations with lots of folks! I'll remember to bring coffee mugs to Shannon so we can sample your coffee as well!

Honestly, the leg doesn't hurt as much as the DAL for chicken did.:twisted:

I also thought our ribs looked and tasted better than a 21st, but I guess that's life in (or out of) the funny pages. We'll try harder next time!:lol:

by the way, here they are... http://photobucket.com/2sc

As for you, maybe you should get another trailer to haul your awards!:biggrin:

I hope we get to the point where we need more room for awards :-D

I sent Mike an e-mail about the site yesterday. They are out of town until Tuesday so he will check it out then. I hope you guys get in. I'll make sure to make a bigger pot of coffee :rolleyes:
