First Practice Run, Comments Please
Another competition newby looking for some feedback. To start off with, generally when I q things go pretty smoothly, but this was the first time we tried to do everything, at the same time like the real deal. Chaotic. This really is tough! It doesn't help though when your watching an 11 month old the whole time as well!
So anyway, chicken thighs were way to large. Not getting them from Sam's anymore. So please just judge how they look, not on the fact that we could only get 5 in the box!
Ribs were over done. Too tender. And therefore a p.i.a. to cut. Would expect some dings there.
Brisket I thought looked really good, sliced really well, had a great smoke ring and flavor. I think a little longer wrapped and it would have been just right with the tenderness.
Pork Butt didn't get tender enough. After 11 hours we were just done however (wife pulling the plug mod). We should've started earlier in the day. So the pork was a little more chopped than pulled, tender enough chopped though. Had a great flavor. Looking at it this morning should have added more meat or some slices.
Honest feedback please.
