It really is too bad that we lost four contest here this year. The points were so tight you really hated to see it cut short.

If I counted correctly, teams with direct IA connections had 13 calls in the Royal Invite and 12 in the Royal Open. I think that's pretty impressive.

Team for team, Iowa has some serious talent.

I have a master spreadsheet of everything but stopped tabulating when a team was mathematically eliminated.

The good news is next year it will all be database driven and you will be able to get a lot of good data from that.

I've got the North covered...you can go East:twisted:

I might not cook in Iowa next year, my homestate judges don't like my stuff:icon_blush: I've got a top 40 in the country Brisket ranking but can't even sniff the top 5 in the Iowa rankings:twisted::mrgreen:

Tz Cru is a force. 3 wins in year 1 ... and 2 of those were IA's largest comps and the little one only had like 7 Jack teams

Yea T'z is for sure a force in Iowa and surrounding states. Then again, most every team in Iowa is a force, including those Boondoggle Boys.

Joe, I have heard that statement from 3-4 Iowa teams in the last month.

We are planning maybe 3-4 to the north in 2010.

Thanks everyone, and congrats to all the Brethren who made the list. This has been a summer I will never forget!

Perhaps the most surprising thing of this season has been seeing my wife get really in to it, and several of my family members for that matter. Perhaps the greatest thing of this season, greater than any success the team had, was meeting and getting to know some amazing people--both Brethren and non-Brethren--people that I can now call friends. All because of this awesome medium we call barbeque!

(Sorry I got a little sappy there, but sometimes I just can't help myself):icon_blush:

But Joe, even though they are technically your homestate, I doubt your typical Iowa judge prefers pureed pickled herring and lutefisk as their bbq sauce.:lol::twisted::wink::icon_sick

Lots of room to north...looking forward to seeing a few more Iowan's and Brethren in 2010!

Oh and the real key to scoring in brisket in Mn is to present it on a bed of Lefsa :)
