Rhana and I got our first GC together yesterday at the Australia Day (http://www.aussieinseattle.com/bbq.html)competition in Seattle...:-P This was a one day non-qualifier in which we cooked sausage, chicken, lamb, and ribs. Here's how we ended up...

Sausage...9th...(dang turkey sausage dried out on me...:tsk:)
Chicken...2nd...(Kosmo's "Dirty Bird" rocks!)
Lamb...2nd...(first time ever cooking lamb...beginners luck!)
Ribs...1st...:becky:

Australian Cake...2nd...(Rhana whipped up a Pineapple Upside "Down Under" cake that was 2 points away from 1st...:thumb:)

Congrats to "Lucky BBQ" for your RGC! :cool:

Congrats on the GC. I love the Seattle area and would love to cook a comp out there. But living 3000 miles away makes it hard. :cry:

JD, did you and Brian disband Left Hand Smoke?

Hi Vince...I left LHS after the 2010 season to cook with my wife Rhana...Brian has formed a new team with Michael (NorthwestBBQ) and Ty Staley (Smokin' Ty's BBQ)...called FUBAR-B-Q...they were cookin' together yesterday in Seattle at the Australia Day comp...not sure if he will be cooking as LHS this year or not...

Great Job JD - I watched the awards from the beer garden. I got there late - about 4:30pm. It was great to hear everyone cheering for you when you walked. The lamb fillet looked like a tough category.

It never snows in Seattle!!! That's what I told my wife as we moved up there. Had heavy coat on over the 4th and shoveled 2 feet of snow at Christmas. Thank God she loves me.

Thanks man...you should have grabbed me and said hi...I could have put a face to the name...:becky:...anyhoo...glad you came out! Taking 2nd on the lamb was pure luck...I asked a fellow Brethren (Smokin' Aussie) for some advice and he pointed me in the right direction...:thumb:
