And, because we're all competitors at heart, we here at Oakridge BBQ like to have our own Team of the Year competition where the top team from each sponsorship division receives a special prize at the end of the year. Last year the top teams received a high-end Japanese slicing knife and a pair of razor sharp hand-forged Japanese kitchen shears. We're still working on what cool gifts the winners of the 2011 Competition season will receive, but here's the final Oakridge BBQ T.O.Y. standings for 2011...
