He's going Old School... Just the truck and pit...

BTW I had the girls with the Texas t-shirts on. I meant to get a picture with Johnny and then forgot all about it... He enjoyed it. Escpecially when I taught them "Hook 'em" . They loved running up to him and saying that to him...

We're vending both Sat and Sunday.

Will be offering pulled pork sannies, baby back ribs, and grilled corn on the cob (in the husk) with our Roasted Corn Seasoning. When that runs out, we're probably going to be doing smoked hot dogs, sausage, and chicken wings.

Kicked around the idea of doing smoked bologna steaks glazed with a bbq sauce.

Depending on the crowds, we may load up our cooker on Saturday night with another charge of pulled pork for Sunday.

Hard to gauge the two day thing.

29 points out do you really think we could make them up this weekend???
Grilling hasn't been my friend since the new grilling rules. I don't like the limitations of KCBS for grilling. A grilling contest should be open, show what the cook can do. Sauce with 1/8 in dices, and no frills garnish. I'm sorry, it's like they cut your hands off.:icon_bugeyed

You gotta look at your drop scores. If you go 640 - 640 and I Smell Smoke doesn't improve on their low score you would be team of the year.

The new NEBS grilling rules open the door for the
contest organizer to choose what he wants..
standard garnish, open garnish, or no garnish!!
talk to your favorite organizer.. Ray you always do
very well in grilling.. unless we can get you torn down

Hi Ray,

We aren't going to New Paltz. We appreciate the "loan" on Saturday. You guys can take off with the Rancher on Sunday morning. We'll be fine with two 22.5 Kettles on Sunday.

Unless.... You want to sell it.

Yep, I know from first hand experience. I was there two or three years ago. I brought a tent and camped for two nights. The river made for a nice place to wash off the beer residue. I have talked so much about this contest my brother is going with me this year. You should come back up and hang out; there might even be someone who would let you cook chicken for them....

No baby and Sheila stayed home. I really missed them but we had an awesome time. Took 1st place brisket, missed GC by 2.2 points, sold some food, drank endless amounts of free beer, what more could anyone want from a contest?

Lots of Brethren calls, was a Brethren sweep of NEBS team of the year awards....

Chicken: Purple Turtle
Ribs: Transformer BBQ
Pork: I Smell Smoke!!!
Brisket: I Smell Smoke!!!
TOY: I Smell Smoke!!!

Someone asked about grilling, I believe GC was All Q'd Up. Reserve was Wine & Swine (not John).

I was looking forward to trying more of the vending but was too full Saturday and plans changed Sunday. All I had was two bites of IQue's deep fried mac and cheese and I came close to a biteful of Transformer's frito pie but I couldn't fit any more in. Sled, any fishstick photos? Mike, any slider photos? Those Poondogs looked real, real good.

Thanks to Poohbah, Vinny and Sled for their hospitality with a bit of clamsauce, and the olive oil we could not find.

To Brenden and Ted and Sean, for being their cool selves all weekend.

Thanks Mike for swapping out the 3 ciders for the 3 brown ales that we used for our 1st in chefs choice during grilling.

And our friends the Anchormen, thanks as always, we are going to the darkside.:wink:

...and my team mates for dealing with my moody bitchiness...

Congrats to all. It was nice to see everyone again.

Like Sled said, one of the best contests I've been to. I enjoyed competing at Harpoon much better this year than last (although did wish Jorge made it up again).

My thanks to Sled, Phil and James for being the best teammates and friends you can ask for.

While we did excellent from a placing standpoint, it was just great in that I don't think we really had any pressure all weekend. It was just a lot of fun. Vending was interesting..We didn't know what to expect but it was smooth.

Its fine. Of course, the fun part was having to face my wife when she picked me up at the airport... (not)
Oh well, just another farking barbecue story that will live in infamy. I'm sure I will hear about this again and again. Just like the story from the Royal about my brother and the golf cart. Harpoon was a blast!

I think we were calling them Doug Whato's this weekend because he put something other than Jalapeņos in there since there are none to be found. It might have been Serrano's I don't know but they had a little more zip than usual !

I think it had more to do with the guy named "Fudge" who was hawking Poon dogs and pulled pork from his site...

"Get your poon dogs here... freshest poon at the entire event!!"
"Pulled pork here... you haven't had your pork pulled till its been pulled by patrick!!"
