Here's some pictures. Just got back from the event. It was a great time.

First time being a judge....more on that later...

GC was Cecil's BBQ. A father, mother and young son team competing for THE VERY FIRST TIME...

There were all kinds of different rigs. Here's a few of the "different" once.

Gary and Brian after Notley Que picked up 1st in Brisket. They were hugging like this all day:

JTFisher (Smokepranos) also walked with a 3rd in Brisket.

It was a great time. And hanging out with Brian and Gary was a "treat."

For some reason I can't help but think of the movie Tommy Boy when I see this picture.

Congrats guys.

Is gas allowed there?:shock:

So you caught that. There was a "competitor" competition going on at the same time as the "Championship." It was designed for the backyard person that wanted to just get a taste of what it's like to compete. Gas was allowed for that competition.

They also allowed that group to cook any type of rib. The best rib of the entire day that I tasted came out of that group. It was a beef short rib cooked with some type of asian seasonings. It rocked. I would love to get that recipe.

The West Coast BBQ Championship was help as part of the Fairfield, California Tomato Festival. So there were lots of people there that would not normally have been exposed to a bbq comp. Combine that with the "competitor" competition and a lot of people came away with some great ideas about what real bbq was about.

Awwww, lookit those shiny happy faces!!! They're glowing, how sweet. :lol:
I'm glad we didn't hear more of the smack talk than we did, what little we were exposed to had us laughing so hard!

This is a nice show -- Ben, Nate and Kelly are tops. We had everything we needed, a great layout, somebody didn't get the memo to turn down the wind machine but it didn't give us any trouble. Elvis just provided the final, surreal touch to the awards.

It was great to meet some new teams, our boys made new friends, and we got to renew acquaintances too. Congratulations to those who walked, we look forward to seeing everyone again next year.

I had a great time. The only problem (aside from the wind) was all the SoCal teams & newbies taking walks instead of me. Guess I'm going to have to practice some more. It was a pleasure to meet a lot of you for the first time. Hope to see you at Clovis or Viejas.

Congrats to all!
