Thank you, the other ambassadors, the volunteers, the judges and everyone who helped make this an incredible event.
Thanks! They also got what we did wrong, right. If that makes any sense. I did have REALLY good pork on Day 1, and my ribs were spot-on for Day 2. We were rewarded for both. My brisket left me a little flat, and the judges noticed the same thing so it scored in the 160's. My chicken was great, for me anyway, and it made it to the 170's. As much as we all complain about inconsistent judging, quite often they do get it right.
That having been said, I'm a HUGE advocate of tracking judges scores and seating them in a manner that balances the tables.......
