Default First Competition.....WOW

My wife and I competed in our first pro BBQ comp this weekend in Liberty, IN. We have been CBJ's for two years and have judged 23 comp up until now and have learned that BBQ folks are tops.

We have almost always stayed for rewards to see how all our friends did and have been so excited for them.

We had no lofty goals at all. Just three, have fun, make all turn in times and not finish last.

I had some jitters Friday and Saturday and my wife had them real bad Sunday morning. (Sunday turn ins)

Things went pretty good cooking wise. Had alot of fun. Met up with alot of our BBQ friends and made all turn in times.

Nerves pretty well in check we got everthing loaded up and ready to go so we could leave right after awards.

Well the nerves went haywire when during the pork catagory we got a 6th place call, then in brisket we got a 3rd place call. WOW. Then a 7th place over all out of 31 teams.

I hope it not beginners. I think I've got the bug.

Thanks to all those that have mentored me here and along the way.

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.
