Good job to all brothers, Ryan and Terry are top notch people, come to think of it last time I cooked the Qlossal the team next to us won then too. I think I will have to sell my serves as a good luck charm.

Congrats to BigT and Ryan. Sorry I was only able to meet Ryan for a quick second - time was not on my side.

What a fun weekend, I'm sure we'll be back next year.

Thanks everyone and congrats to all the other Brethren who walked. It was a day I will never ever forget. It was great to meet so many Brethren and have the chance to get to know some of you! I can honestly say that it could not have been without all the knowledge and support I have received since I joined the Brethren over a year ago. Thanks to everyone on here for making the greatest forum on the internets!

btw-Joe and Ray, we will definitely be getting a trailer now, now I just have to start the long process of figuring out which one. :wink:

Hey, I have never met you - but I was telling one of my partners that it was a real rush to see someone win who seemed to be genuinely thrilled! The look on your face when you came up was a look of humility and pure joy. I'm glad you won!

Congrats to everyone.
If winning $8,000 at a rainy contest doesn’t convince someone to buy a trailer, I don’t know what would.

Well run contest, the only problem we had was they had already picked up the ash/grease cans when we tore down camp. Not a problem with us but I felt bad leaving it in the parking lot. Do you guys have anything you use to take the ash/and grease with you?

Congrats to Ryan and the Q Cru. Sorry we never got to bump in to you... or if we did, I'm sure it was a pleasure meeting you.

This week was a blur. It was NON-STOP!!!! We served 2300 people over three days at the World Pork Expo, vended ALL of our leftovers Friday night, Big Green Egg Scramble, Whole Hog, three other categories, served our hog to the public plus 300 bags of popcorn, and sold a couple cases of rub to the public. On top of that, Randy was on the local news as a Pork Producer and BBQ competitor. I was also filmed for a Pork promotional video. I don't think we could have squeezed more in this week if we tried.

This is a very special contest for Randy and I since he is a Pork Producer... fancy name for pig farmer. His family has been to 18 of the 20 World Pork Expo's. Anne is from my home town in Iowa and went to High School with all of my aunts and uncles. We had so much going on Friday with catering, vending, and the scramble, that Randy took on the hog cooking and prep with out me. He rocked a 3rd in hog!!! I was so proud. A bigger thrill for me was 7th in Loin. We've NEVER placed in loin. It always kept us out of the hunt and was our nemesis. Getting a call was a great personal accomplishment for us.

Congrats to everyone who got their name called. Sorry I didn't get a chance to get around to everyone.

I was genuinely thrilled to get RGC! :wink: That was probably the most competitive Qlossal I've been to in the six years we've been attending. Parking lot was full of great cooks. Ryan's group should be very proud. They deserved it.

We got 3 calls, but our best one (5th in whole hog) wasn't part of the GC. We missed a shoulder call, but being that category has generally treated us well, we were thinking we had an outside chance at 4th, maybe 3rd at best.

We're happy as pigs in chit finishing 8th among that field. You couldn't hardly go 2-3 booths without a team having their own restaurant, rub, sauce or something bbq related available in retail outlets.

Congrats to all of the winners. Hope the wet weekend didn't discourage anyone.

Wife and I got delayed and came down about 1 Saturday afternoon. Neither had been to a comp before, so weren't quite sure of when to go. Figured if we went too early, we wouldn't get to talk to many of you as you were prepping for the dash to the finish line. Most were breaking down by the time we got there, so we just walked and looked and snagged a few samples.

I've worked with Boy Scouts, and after a wet weekend, you don't always want to talk, you just want to get packed and on the road.

Wife has new interest in my UDS plans. Thanks to everyone. Hope you enjoyed the city I call home.

What a week! It's always good to see friends again and make some new ones.

Ploboy Todd is being humble! Todd and Randy served 2300 in three days, with a combined serving time of 8 hours using two lines that we're probably a 1/2 mile from their trailers.

Then there was the Big Green Egg Scramble that was won by....Plowboy and Diva. They decided what to cook about 2 hrs. before the event, and beat some very good cooks!

Randy and his son, Brandon, did the hog prep and the results speak for themselves!

Congrats to everyone that got calls, and thanks to everyone that made it such a great weekend!

One of those teams was us! That was a lot of fun, although leading up to it we were probably more nervous than we have been in a long time. We cooked some pretty good food, but it wasn't enough to beat Diva and Todd! As soon as I saw their turn-in plates with an ice cold bottle of Corona in the middle of them, I knew they were going to win!:wink:

Todd and Step you guys need to take those pictiures and send them to Corona. I heard a commercial on the radio this morning about some deck contest they are having. Its an $8000 deck for you house paid for by Corona. Its based on creativity and seeing those pics they look creative.
