Wow! Just got back from the American Legion Post 618 12th Annual 40 & 8 Cookoff.

What is "Forty and Eight"? Read more about that here.

This cookoff was in Willis, Texas about 20 miles north of Conroe, Texas. It was above 100 all weekend down here with clear skies and man that's a challenge to cook in. The earth in Willis is this fine silty soil and with the full body of sweat and a fan and occasional breeze we were encapsulated in a thin layer of dirt in no time. I was so filthy by last night I had to shower twice to get all the dirt off of me.

Don't get me wrong we had a great time and we cooked some great BBQ. We (Crapshoot BBQ) got Reserve GC in a tie with the great Don Canterbury. His brisket score was higher so he took the GC. His 5th in a row no less. If you don't know him he's a great guy and a great cook.

I hope everyone had a good time this weekend, and I'm glad that no one fell out due to the heat cause it was a hot!! The full results will be posted on TGCBCA web site as soon as Texana (Craig) can post them. Here are the top 10 overall winners.
