:redface: Something totally went wrong in the chicken process this weekend....:redface: I'm gonna have to go back and re-think what happened.....sorry we brought shame to the Belly Brothers name with a DAL in chicken....we were top 10 in the other 3 catagories

I got to meet a lot of Brethren brothers this weekend and put faces with names....that was nice. All of you are top notch Brethren and I'm proud to call you my brothers.
About 70% CBJs, and in my opinion the score sheets show it. Total overall high score was 639. I had made the comment to StlGreg that I though 650 would win this one....it was even lower....
Congrats to Great Grills on another fine showing!

Congrats to everyone!

Gary, it was great conversation meeting you and your family.

I had my best weekend yet. two calls and top 10 overall! I missed a third call by .0002!

I like five of the six racks of ribs I cooked. I think i just picked the wrong slab. I found out from my judge friends that at their two tables there was 3 uncertified judges at each of them. The one I turned in was just perfect (to my judges experience) even after letting them sit. I think i could have made a 4th call with a better slab choice.

Greg created this thread, I merged a post over from the other thread, but due to time stamp, mine took the top spot...I wanted to give Greg credit for creating this thread......sorry brother, I was just trying to keep all the conversation in the same thread.

LOL. no big deal. Looks like we had teh same idea this morning.

I still have some things to figure out but i had a good weekend, I had a lot of improvement. I was going to cook Pacific in three weeks but that might a little soon to figure out some things.

Congrats to everyone who got called.

We sure didnt have a very good showing. We go the not so coveted DAL in pork. Dont know what the hell happened there??? Our ribs were not fit to eat and didnt get last????? The worst part for me was the fact that I stayed sober for this event and still did LOUSY!!! Should have gotten drunk I guess, then I could have blamed it all on the alcohol. LOL LOL

I know the feeling... Our chicken tanked at Moweaqua this weekend and cost us RGC or GC! (I really didn't think it was that bad :confused:)

Wanna share some chicken tips? :rolleyes:

Congrats to all calls and to Great Grills on the GC.

Greg, I love the layout of your pork box - not sure if it's the pic or not but it looks a bit saucy. I think if you would have put the sliced pork in back and the chunks up front and had a little less sauce, you would have received a lot of 9's for app.

Thanks! There does seem to be a little too much sauce on the there. I wasnt real happy with the pictures. The guy next to us had a red tint and the really messed with the ribs pic.

We missed out on first by 3.2 points and we were 7th! It was a tight pork race. Lion out the Q lost out on first by tiebreaker.

Any other suggestions let me know. I am interested in what you guys think on the chicken and brisket.

if she would have been Lion bout the Q would have taken GC. She sucked every little bit of meat off of that rib she could. :-D

First of all Congrats to everyone that got called. I live here in Hannibal and had to work all weekend so I did not make it down. I am still upset about that. I wanted to come down and meet everyone that posts here. I will be there next year, and have found out that they are talking about setting up a class to get some people certified to judge. I am just a backyard cook but I will sign up for the class. :-D

It was a good contest although some more space would have been nice. It was great to meet some of the other Brethren and thanks for getting me out of there quick so I could go to Moweaqua which turned out well for me. Congrats to all

It was nice meeting you, Kevin.....I know you had a little business to take care of before you headed back home from IL, be sure to let us know you made it safely!

My chicken was in the brine twice as long as it should have been
I have to be more careful with that.
