Reminds me of an event down in Imperial Beach, think it was Surf n Turf 2005. I was cooking with Burbank's Bad Boys, Dave Klose was there to visit Gene. He was talking about a brisket that he had judged that day, he said he tried pulling it 11-12 times and it would not come apart. The way he was describing it had us rolling on the ground. Old Dave is a funny down to earth kind of guy. But his story was a hoot.
