Results Of My 1st BBQ Competion in Mariposa, CA (Heavy Pr0n)
 
So after starting to get into BBQing over the summer (wife got me a smoker for fathers day/bday) I decided to enter my 1st competition on 9-22-12 this past saturday in Mariposa CA called the Blazin Hog BBQ Competition. There were 25 spots available and only 14 teams competed. In ribs we took 7th and in tri-tip we took 6th. I recognized Barts Blazin Q from Livermore and Bad S BBQ out of Sunnyvale. I met Dave from Barts and Ryan Pang from Bad S BBQ and I have to say those 2 guys are some of the friendlest, nicest guys I've met. Dave actually came over and introduce himself him to me toward the end of competition and I was in the spot next to Ryan & Bad S BBQ. It was one of the best times I had with my dad working as a team and just the overall experience of a BBQ competition was awesome. We definately have been bitten by the BBQ bug and will be back next year. Now on to the pr0n!

Here is my dad and myself right after setting up in the am

Thank you! The BBQ competition season is winding down here in CA but I am definately hooked and that only leaves me more time to practice before next year.

Nice job, man! Keep up the great work!

Lake Dogs 09-24-2012 07:58 PM

Excellent, especially for a first time competitor. Congrats. Oh, by the way, I think I have the same pitiful excuse for a hat, too... :-)

So, were YOU happy with the results?

I was very happy with the results especially for my 1st time out and in the rib category where I was very close to Bad S BBQ/Ryan Pang and their calibur of BBQ. It was a close one!

Very cool. What's up with that hanging smoker? A rookie team at a comp in Montana was using one and I thought it was something they found or made, but now I see it's a real deal, got any info on it?

Congratulations!
