Dan and his family were next to us at the awards ceremony and it was great to be able to share the excitement with them. Here's how it went down...

They first announced the side categories from Friday night. After that they announced the Thrill of the Grill results, starting with chicken. I heard the announcer say "Third place chicken goes to" someone, but not Chambers. Then "second place in chicken is" also someone, but not Chambers. Then, "And in first place in chicken for the 2010 Thrill of the Grill is...

Chambers Holy Smoked BBQ!!!" :clap:

The crowd went wild! Well... OK... The Brethren in the crown who know Dan went wild, including Dan's family, Parsley Lady, Scottie and me! I think Dan was in shock a little. He went up to accept the trophy and check and then had his picture taken with his family and Miss Arthur, Junior Miss Arthur and the extremely cute Mini Miss Arthur, missing front tooth and all :-D

Then, they moved on to ribs. I heard the announcer say "Third place ribs goes to" someone, but not Chambers. Then "second place in ribs is" also someone, but not Chambers. Then, "And in first place in ribs for the 2010 Thrill of the Grill is...

Chambers Holy Smoked BBQ!!!" :clap:

Again the crowd went wild! More shock from Dan and more pictures.

Then, as Dan is still standing holding his trophy the announcer says "And the Grand Champion for the 2010 Thrill of the Grill competition is..." And then he says "this shouldn't be a surprise..."

"Chambers Holy Smoked BBQ!!!" :clap:

I'm not sure if Dan realized at first that he was the GC, but it sunk in and he went and collected more hardware and another check and had more pictures taken!

Congrats to Dan and the whole Chambers family!!!! I'm glad that we were there to share the moment with you.

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

Now... On to the important stuff... Now that's you've taken names and kicked butts in the Backyard division, when will your professional debut be? :becky:

Isn't there another competition in IL next weekend that Dan could come and strut his stuff?? :becky::becky:

Ron L - it won't be this year - and not against YOU - I've still got a long way to go to compete with you heavy hitters.
Thanks for the support and all your help, Ron. The Brethren truly are great folk.

Dan, you have no idea how happy I am for you. Nice to see One Of The Good Guys triumph. And its great to hear the Brethren got your back at the comps. I'm always impressed by the fellowship of the brethren.

I don't know if I'm more shocked or excited. I'm just glad Ken V. didn't come to compete :) (he won GC and kicked my butt last week). Thanks for spending time with your family yesterday, Ken :)

chambersuac
10-11-2010, 02:07 PM
Guerry, the trophies are too big to take shots out of - but I think you could drink beer out of 'em :)

Pictures on my wife's computer. I have some that I can email, but not post here, as they are on a photo program called Smilebox that Karen made. I'll see if I can capture the pictures off of it, if so, I'll post in a few.

chambersuac
10-11-2010, 02:16 PM
Okay, I can't snag the photos off the Smilebox in a savable format. When Karen gets where she's going, I'll ask her to email them to me. Or, PM me your email address and I'll email it to ya...

No worries! We were yelling "yeah DANNNNNNNNNNN, but it was loud there and hell, a train coulda drowned me out.

Really glad your first comp experience turned out so well for you and the family!

Thanks, Dan. Yeah, when they called my name I went into some kinda stunned trance - I don't think I heard anything until Ron L yelled at me to get back up there for G.C. :)

Thanks, Brian. Actually, I can't take all the credit. I joined the Brethren around 18 months ago and knew almost nothing about real BBQ - and NOTHING about competitions. YOU GUYS all helped in this victory.

The Brethren ROCK!

Adam, I hope you got some well deserved and probably much needed rest yesterday. You guys did a great job, from what I can tell.

Do you know if they/you/whoever is still gonna email us our score cards. I'd like to see it, so I can see what the judges liked/didn't like. Thanks.
