I spent the day judging the Grilling on the Bay contest. Phil dropped me off around 6pm back at the house. The wife and I went out to TGIF for some dinner. It was crowded so they were actually serving some food to the people waiting. I had a few buffalo wings. We sat down and I ordered some soup, salad and their new BBQ pulled pork sammich. I guess judging contests is hard work.

Hey Phil, what did you have for dinner?

Got back home @ 5:30... went to the diner with my wife and had breafast for dinner- three eggs with ham, cheese,toast and home fries.

Rob and Matt - great job to both of you for pulling it off...

Great time judging again, but I am really itching to cook the first contest of the year now. Food entries were better than Snowshoe Challenge last week. .

Default Results

It's early in the morning, or late at night depending on how you want to look at it, so I'll post the entire list tomorrow, but here's the Overall Rankings for Grillin' on the Bay.

10. Beer Belly Porkers
9. Smokin Dave's Tailgate Party
8. Smokey Mikes Brooklyn BBQ
7. Cockeye BBQ
6. Righteous Urban BBQ - Paul Kirk's RUB restaurant
5. South Shore Smokers
3. Front Street Smoke House
2. Water Front Ale House
1. Purple Turtle Catering

I was really pleased to see Greg and Nancee from Purple Turtle take GC. Besides being a great team and folks, it turns out Greg went to school at St. Mark back in the 60's. What a trip it must have been for him to be wondering the old hallways and schoolyard.

We had four last minute cancelations, but from what I hear, everyone who showed had a great time. A big thanks to Steve and Nancy and the guy with the broken truck for repping. Their performance was flawless and made it a well run event. We kept draining that truck of all it's agave nectar all afternoon.

And congratulations to South Shore Smokers - Sledneck's team (Steve), 5th overall at his first event, at which he cooked solo with only some help from his son. Excellent job Steve. And remember, not many teams can say they beat Paul Kirk's restaurant at their first time out of the gate.

I'l give you guys a more detailed report on organizing an event later. Thanks to everyone who participated or sent good wishes our way which kept the snow and rain away.

What a great time! I had alot of fun. Placing 5th overall was a thrill as well as placing 4th in pork. I think my cooking partner(my 11 year old son) had a better time. Rob and Matt did such a great job, it was all first class and ran so smoothely. I really learned alot and received some real good tips from some of the other competitors. Most of my low score were for presentation but i know what i have to work on now. Congratulations to all the winners.

Now that is cool. That's a memory you can't put a price on!

Though I'm not Rob, I'll jump in and say thanks, Jeff. We had a great time putting it together-- it was an honor to work with Rob and was so worth it to see the cooks having fun--and to see Sledneck and son do so well and be so happy while doing it. That's what I'm talking about.

I was also really happy to get a chance to meet Michelle (Lunchlady), Smoker, Phil and Militant Squatter for the first time-- thanks for giving your time to judge, folks.

I'm pretty wiped, but wanted to say that our sponsors came through BIG TIME for the goodie bags-- hawgeyesbbq, dizzypigbbq, Spicewine Ironworks, HomeBBQ, and Manny's Pitbull Hotsauce-- awesome stuff all around. Also, big thanks to Paul Kirk's RUB who were our main sponsors, and Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz for (finally) showing up w/ our proclamation. Our reps from NEBS, Nancy and Dave Peterson and Steve Farrin were just awesome and kept everything running smoothly and just made it happen-- couldn't have done it without them

We raied about 1,500 dollars for the kids and there was a bunch of press folks there, so I hope we see something soon..both Waterfront Ale House and RUB gave the checks they received back as donations to the program-- super cool....All in all, I couldn't be prouder...

Can't wait for next year!
