Just want to say thank you to all the brethren that have helped me out and listened as I expressed my frustration over my pork entry. But the monkey is gone.

Two back to back great showings have proved it.

State Center - 3rd in Pork
Marshalltown - 1st in Pork.

Thank you all. We could'nt have done it without you.

Monkey spanked!

Congrats, Ray. I doubt anyone worked as hard as you did, though. ;)

Proud brother here! So happy for you guys. You're locked in now and ready to rock!

On the other hand, I still don't think you have enough sauce on there.:wink::lol:

After rolling it in sauce, then basting in sauce, I brushed on some more sauce and still could have used some more. :mrgreen:

I am pumped about what this brings to the team. Only thing stopping us now is ourselves. Lets hope that doesn't happen.:icon_smil

Thats Real Purty. What were your appearance scores? Is that the sauce you get from me? See you in Waucoma.

Don't have the list with me at the time, but the appearance didnt' score as high as I thought it should. Few 9s, 8s, ands 7s.
We used that sauce for the base and added our own touches of wonderness.

Chicken is my monkey. Nine years of competing and never a first in chicken. Multiple firsts in every other category and several 2nds/3rds but no 1sts in chicken.

I'm at least placing in chicken this year, so it is just a matter of time, I guess.

I, too, would also thank all those who posted suggestions on the pork. What a great place and great people. This is one of the reasons Ray and I teamed back up, and it was truly a team effort on the pork. I cant leave out Rick and Bob, the other members of the team, they sit in back ground and dont ask for much. We are just now starting to gel and hopefully be taking the walk soon. Thank you all!

Very true. I didn't mean to leave out Jay, Rick and Bob. If it weren't for them, this would have been a difficult task.

Todd, you should consider using a quality rub such as Yardbird on your chicken and see if that helps:rolleyes:
