Teresa and I spent quite a bit of time with Jimmy this weekend....we had an excellent time! Congrats to the Smokin' Cracker team on the RGC! It took you the 1st day to learn what the borrowed cooker would do, but you farkin nailed it the next day!
Who knows what the invitational would have held for you if you just would have had better chicken to work with. I'm glad you got different for Sunday!

That was an absolutely amazing weekend! Congrats to Spicewine, Boondoggle, Smokin Cracker, Plowboy and Captain caveman!

Thank you all of you for the love you showed me during my first trip to the royal. I got shake hands and hug so many people that I have only spoken with on the phone or on the internet and I feel like my family just got so much bigger and closer.

A special shout out to Big Dog for picking me up, driving me around and bring my "room dog".

A big thanks to the MoKanMeatheads for putting up with me an providing a place for me to cook. I loved cooking with you guys and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thanks to Todd for letting me burn macaroni in his trailer.

A meaty rye bread thanks to Julie and Skip for the Skippy Burgers.

And an extra special thanks to Andy and Kim for not only taking me to the airport but allowing me in their home.

I love you all!!

Big Congrats to KC Bobby and DMDon of Boondoggle! You guys did your thing. The brisket and ribs ROCKED! I guess the judges thought so too. What is most impressive, was how calm the guys were during turn ins. Last minute decisions/discussions on brisket were razor sharp, and I believe that made the difference. Confident coolness.

How about that $8.00 investment turning into $12,500+?!?! :-D And I believe you made some money in the other two categories as well? Hopefully, Kingsford matches those too. A big weekend.

The hospitality at Boondoggle was also second to none. Thanks a bunch for the Templeton and Boulevard IPA! Great meeing you guys and sharing some time over the weekend, and looking forward to seeing you guys again.

Wow, the last 48 hours have been a blur. Giddy one minute, in disbelief the next. Surreal ... like a 12 year old dreaming about scoring the winning TD in the big game.

So many highlights to the entire event, Sunday was just the icing on the cake. Wednesday night sharing a few beers and a shot with Damnit Andy. Thursday was fun hanging with some great BBQ friends I've been fortunate enough to meet over the past few years and some even minutes prior. Friday I had an outstanding time with family and some longtime friends while we started the night at our spot then a few of us did some party hopping - thanks to those of you who invited us in for socializing. Saturday I was able to cheer on many friends as they were bringing in Invitational turns ins and while receiving their awards, then the Invite winner letting me wear the crown and hold the trophy so I could feel how heavy it was. And Sunday - OMG.

Some other things that I will always remember about the weekend:

Trying to figure out what Skip was saying all week ... I need to work on my NE accent deciphering. Sorry Skip

Alcoholosophizing with MooCow late Friday night/Saturday morning

Borrowing Early Bird's bike for a spin about 2:00 am. And flying into Tippy Canoe's space just under Mach 1.

Then challenging Giggler to a Top Chef sausage challenge was another part of the weekend I'll never forget. That was a lot of fun.

Getting the call from the Grand Poobah himself.

Sunday night bale burning with the Iowa Regional Brethren Chapter.

Meeting so many new friends throughout the weekend face to face - incredible. I don't know how many weekends that I'll remember in 50 years, but this was definitely one of them thanks to the many people that I had the pleasure to spend time with.

EDIT: how could I forget ... being fortunate enough to compete as a team with my brother (even if the ribs and brisket outscored the chicken and pork by .0004)

I hear you about not being able to make it out of your spot. Between all the company we have and everything there is to do, I struggled to get out as well.

I have not even plugged them in yet. We just moved two weeks ago and have spent the last two weekends at competitions, so things have been crazy busy for us. I am looking forward to practicing on them all winter, though.

Let me know when you are coming up. OUr house my not be in shape to have you over, but maybe we could go out or something.

DMDon
10-08-2009, 12:08 AM
Thanks to all for for the congrats. It takes me a while to compute all that happened this last weekend. I owe alot to alot of people when it comes BBQ. Plowboy Todd and Damnit Andy have never not answered any of my multitude of questins. There are many others who have been there to assist with whatever we needed. This would not have been possible without this forum. I don't post much, but I sure read most of it. A special thanks to Bob from BBQ Bonanza, he got me a part for my smoker when I needed it. We had great neighbors with Smoke on Wheels and his extended New York family. Skip makes a great burger, it really hit the spot. Most importantly is my treamate Bobby, he keeps me on task and is my sense of reason when it comes to turnins. I would be lost out there without him. It also didn't hurt that he nailed the chicken(that doesn't sound right) I'm still not sure that what happened is real, and every time I look at the trophy it chokes me up to think of how fortunate I am.

Congrats, any pics of your turn in's? :icon_devil
