I suppose according to Bludawg we're a dieing breed... That said, I'll still catch a cat-nap before getting up around midnight for the cook. I cook hotter and faster than some, but not so's you'd say pure hot-n-fast; briskets (and shoulders) off around 11am; lunch served at 12:30pm rain or shine.
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.
