Default 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
