Well this is not from 2009 but if you go by the calendar year that many cooks do follow then SmokeInDaEye Oct 2008 win at the Battle of the Brethren would be his first at a KCBS event.

Paul from the Pickled Pig could settle this.

Andy has 2-3 RGC's already this year. You forget, he cooks on like 5 different teams a year.

I think last year, Andy's RGC count across all teams was something like six.

P Hill and Burlington have to be two of my favorite events... I know we have both talked about it before; but it's just good times. Nothing crazy or out of the ordinary.... just great times, with great friends. doing well was icing on the cake.

You taught him well! :wink:
I can't imagine a time I'm cooking that I am not learning something...:wink:

Check's in the mail :rolleyes: I'm not seeing that I one of the best, but check is still in the mail.

Thanks! Even if it doesn't count for 2009, winning my first KCBS GC ever against 40plus teams at a Brethren organized event is irreplaceable! And congrats to all the other first timers. More proof how tough the bbq competition circuit is getting.

I'm new to the forum but thought I'd add my name to the list... My 1st G.C. ever, at the PNWBA-sanctioned Western Canadian BBQ Championships in Regina, SK in July.
Add to that: Two more GC's (BBQ on the Bow, Calgary, + Smoke on the Water, Saskatoon) and one RGC (Manitoba Championships). Not bad for 4 comps entered in total this year! See you in K.C. in 2.5 weeks! :grin::grin::grin:
