I thing you're right Scottie, my bad for not asking. It was her first one, and with no band Friday, no food vendors, a DJ and the band they had Saturday, guess it was obvious.

Hopefully they do better next time, and I'll ask ahead if I can either do early drop off or just arrive Thursday.

We took our time getting out Saturday evening as we had a lot of folks in front of us. One team left behind 1 and 1/2 22" WSM's, a folding table, and a huge fire pit.

The cleanup guys asked me if it was mine....should have said yes, but instead told him no, but if nobody contacted them about picking up I'd be happy to do so! Gave them a card. It'd be an add from the perfectly good Weber OTS one of my neighbors left on the curb a couple of weeks ago!

Kind of a tough year for us, only 1 call in 6 comps. But after only 3 or 4 in 2011 because of trailer/truck issues, and 2 last year before C diagnosis, I can't complain. I think we've got our timing back now, and are used to the new trailer, and have it more organized. So with the help of a class in the off-season, maybe we can start hitting more often

Had a lot of fun with our next door neighbors Yellow Card BBQ, who were doing their first contest.

We had fun as well...learned some lessons and got some experience Definitely have some ideas of what we need to change up for next season, but we knew we had to crawl before we, er...well, it will be awhile before we walk :).

The lowlight was coming home and having my wife tell me I'm smoking brisket for a party next Saturday...after we finished D.A.L. in brisket.

"Ugh, can't we do ribs??? We were respectable there...."

I'm still ticked...I know I can make a better brisket than that. :)

Til next year!

Congrats on the RGC Coz!

It was pretty cool, and a pleasure chatting with you and you're brother.

I understand all to well Coz! For me it starts this weekend with that sketch I sent you. The goal is cooking on it in March for a CBJ class I am cooking for. . . Shouldn't be a problem.

Until May, looks like we are back to progress emails. . . Kinda upset the season is done.

I know it might have tightened up a bit from the cold, but I think your brisket tasted ok, but wasn't quite done. Chewy is not what you want.
You guys did fine.

I was really surprised how many new cooks chose to do their first comp in those conditions!

Coz, congrats on the RGC Hope to see you a few times next year
