Default First Competition this past weekend

Hey all. My first comp was this past weekend in Boydton, Va. It was not sanctioned but they ran it with KCBS rules and are sanctioning it within the next two years. They had brisket, pork and ribs. Chicken will be added next year. I took the whole family, camped on the courthouse lawn and did my best to really incorporate the kids into the competition atmosphere. My wife built the boxes and did a fabulous job. Long story short, we did better than I ever imagined. 2nd place overall, 3rd in ribs, 3rd in pork and 1st in brisket! Absolutely had a blast and definitely have been bitten by the competition bug lol. Big thanks to all who have helped me to get to this point and to all the brethren who keep this wonderful sure so inviting and helpful. Specific thanks to Boshizzle, Lake Dogs and 5-0 BBQ.
Here are the pics of the boxes and awards. Thanks again brethren!

Congrats! Great job!

I see only 5 slices and 5 burnt ends in the brisket box. Even though they used KCBS rules they didn't require 6 pieces?

Yeah Ron. They followed rules but only had 5 judges. One got sick last minute and couldn't get a replacement.

There are technically 10 pieces in that box, so more than enough..............

Tell that to judge number 6 after everyone else takes a slice and a burnt end

Of course, judge number 6 would have his/her score dropped anyway

SUPER JOB!!! Congrats! Particularly, I like the pics with the kids in 'em. I'm jealous. I didnt start until my kids were much older and they to date haven't had any interest in competing or cooking, but they sure seem to love EATING... ****ed kids...

Seriously, way to go!!!

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.

FYI: Y'all, if he'll ever market his sauce, you simply must try it. That last round I tasted is still very memorable. I know I'll buy it if/when it becomes available.

This is definitely an interesting point (and I really would need to sidebar it as to not derail), but since there are 10 distinguishable pieces would the first 5 judges be allowed to take everything leaving the 6th judge with nothing? Doesn't seem like the table captain would let that happen.


And to the OP those boxes looked good and way way better than the first ones I ever turned in. That garnish work is pretty handy. Ours looked like parsley was thrown into the air and then caught with the box.
