Man! What a fantastic weekend, except for the almost 7 hour drive up there. I was following the storm and the traffic was horrible. Not sure when I can remember a 200 mile traffic jam....
Well worth it and would do it again! While Friday was a wash-out (literally), Saturday and Sunday were great!
Dan, Chris, Dan Mc, Jenn, Jason, Kenny, Bob and BBQ Guru Co., are really great folks! Period!
Dan, Chris and Dan Mc did a outstanding job of going thru every phase of their cooking styles, methods, recipes, timelines, temps, sauces, glazes, turn-in boxes (damn, I made the best one, IMHO
I really appreciate the honesty from all them in everything they were doing or did.
I must say that one of the funniest times and I wish I had a voice recorder for it, was when Dan was rubbing the briskets and butts before putting the on the smoker. Trust me, it was funny as hellll!
Dan Mc did a great job on the Prime Rib dinner with all the fixins, and the pig was one heck of a way to snack between breakfast and lunch. Very tasty, just wish I had packed a bag to go.
Most importantly, was the products that Dan and Chris cooked! Seriously, some of the best tasting brisket, pork, chicken and ribs I have had!
These folks went all out to make things as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Dan Mc's lesson on prepping, cooking, cutting and presenting a pig was really good. That was a really nice added touch to this event!
Again, thanks to the BBQ Guru folks for their hospitality and great deals on their products!
BIG thanks to the 3-Eyz team, Galvinell Meat Co., and the rest of the sponsors.
