Congrats Scottie and all the rest of the Brethren that got calls. Ron L, nice to see you again. Sorry I didn't stay and chat, I was on a whirlwind tour, then back home for work. Would have loved to see your set-up.

I think Scottie and Motley Que Crew did a heck of a good job cooking. And they were super consistent in all 4 meats. In talking with Merl and Carol after they said while entering scores that they thought I had it locked up until they saw the brisket scores. Little did they know how bad my brisket would be. But I did when I went to slice it.

Anybody know a good brisket cook that's looking to join a team????? That's 3 times in the last 5 weeks brisket has killed me with no scores above 142 and 3 - 3rd place overall finishes.
