Well we did it. Completed our first ever comp today. We finished 1st in Chicken, 5th in Ribs and 4th overall. Our chicken scored 237.1 and was the best I've done. Ribs were awesome; however our presentation killed us on the ribs. We were out of 2nd, 3rd and 4th by less then ONE point. I know we had a great product but was rushed at the last moment. The presentation worried me the moment the box left (no garnish boxes). The final category was wildgame: We made the worst mistake ever by doing a smoked quail and anduille sausage gumbo. The cups were tiny and the judges had no idea what they were eating (NEVER AGAIN). Can't complain though....extremely happy.....we got paid!!!! Heres the pics.

Yep Dave. It's called gotawalkanitus. All it takes is one call and then you keep going after the next one. Kind of like golf. Usually the best shots happen on the 18th hole so no matter how bad the previous 17 were you are ready to go out again.

Congrats on all the walks! And in your first comp! I am very jealous!

But still happy for you. I really liked that chicken idea also, not sure how it would score up here in the midwest, but very different!
