I like that plan. Pork butt is my favorite anyway. It will not go to waste if it's not turned in. Got lot's of local folks pushing me to go for it, so here we go.
rbinms33, Thanks for the encouragement. That was my thought also. New event. First timer. Who cares where I place. Getting a serious competion going in Blue Earth, Minnesota (my town) would be pretty darn cool. I'm more excited about gettin this thing off the ground than winning anyway. But I will dang sure put my best effort forward. Did a practice cook of chicken thighs tonight and got 2 thumbs up from my judges (Bride and Son).
