Just a quick post to let all know that I took First place in the Amateur Category. A big thanks to Plowboy for his Yardbird rub and all the other advice given here over the past years.

My scores were as follows:

J1 = 6 7 6
J2 = 7 8 8
J3 = 8 9 9
J4 = 8 7 8
J5 = 8 8 8
J6 = 8 7 7

I had trouble holding my temps down in the WSM (used too much charcoal) so I had to pull and rest the ribs for a while, while I got the cooker back down to a usable temp. Things were done way too soon, so I consider my results to be a bit lucky.

Here are some pics of the event and my box, for your viewing pleasure:

Here is a peek into one of the Professional vendors holding box, early in the morning:

Here are the trophies, on display:

and me with my trophy!

A big thanks to everyone here on the forum for their advice and inspiration. This was a one-meat event. I have a great deal of respect for those of you who routinely handle four-meat events. :clap2:

Nice job CG. I didn't think that event was until today, I was going to head over there this afternoon if it didn't get too hot. Bad enough up here in St. Joseph with the Venetian Festival going on.
