OK, I'm officially Native American according to the Commonwealth of Virginia, but I will take the compliement as high praise.
Thanks, brethren for all your help! The cook raised money for the local food bank which is about as worthy a cause as I know of.
Awesome! I must admit, on of my personal favorite moments in BBQ was when I received a compliment much like yours. It's one thing to get great reviews from folks who rarely if ever eat BBQ and rarely if ever get really good BBQ and/or are half starving to death before they eat and/or about as drunk as no tomorrow... It's another thing to get great reviews from those who reallly KNOW BBQ. You did it bro!
Hance - Lake Dogs Cooking Team - MiM/MBN/GBA CBJ and comp cook
Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
