ok..

3 Beer guts became 4 actually.. Me, WillyB, Barfly(Chris) and Fred.. all with a bit of overhang over the belt buckle.... and Jorge flew up from TX, he was the longhorn.

so, our surprise team was "4 Beer Guts and a Longhorn."

We each took a a catagory to cook, Willy did ribs, jorge did brisket, chris did chicken and I did pork.

We placed and 9th in chicken, 2nd in pork and better than midpack for the brisket and ribs. with a 5th overall with some bigwigs taking 1 thru 4.


Bad bones??? We gotta watch out for him..he was right on our tails the whole time. Congrats to Militant Squatter.!!! Your make a brethren proud!!!


Just got home.. a great, side splitting time.. much less stress when you take on just one catagory. Details tomorrow.. we be tired.

I spent friday evening and sunday turn in times with Qhaven and his team. What a great group of people. As I see the results I see they didn;t get where they wanted, but they felt confident about what they were doing and put some serious time and action into it.

Ted, thanks for taking us in, it was a great learning experience and a real joy to spend time with your team. Best of luck on your next adventure and if you're ever in need of a substitute member for your team.... Scott

Congrats Vinny and the rest of the brethren teams. Jorge it was a pleasure meeting you and hopefully I'll make it out your way sometime to compete. Thanks for the Tequila and Beer. And thanks for showing me I don't want to get on Jack McDavids bad side.

Congrats again to Vinny, I Smell Smoke Q Haven, Purple Turtle, Four beerguts and Jorge, and all the other brethren. It was a really amazing time despite getting absolutely killed in my first competition yesterday (37 out of 42).

It was a pretty depressing ride home but I am in much better spirits today and am ready to regroup and come back smarter and stronger. Maybe I'll make a list for the "competition lessons" thread but here's my thoughts post-slaughter.

The good:

* Fifth overall in the grilling competition after doing 17th at my only other grilling competition, Grill Kings.

* Getting to watch Jake McDavid take over Will's rib demo

* Placing 14th overall in shoulder with underdone meat, enabling me to tell Jack McDavid (15th place) that I beat him next year (that's the plan, right Will?)

* Finishing 8 categories and not getting DQ'd in any of them

* Amazing experience. I rushed to throw a team together and had no practice with them but survived every possible obstacle.

The bad:

* Inexperienced team. 2 of our 4 members from Grill Kings weren't available so I had to bring in last minute help. They wanted to do whatever they could but without some knowledge of what was happening, I ended up carrying most of the load from trimming meat to presentation.

* Poor temperature control. Our smokers well below 225 until I realized the stock gauges were messed up from the rain or something (any suggestions for accurate gauges I could drill into the smokers?) and pumped the heat at 5am when the brisket was still stuck at 120 but just ran out of time, hitting the low 170s 30 minutes form turn-in, giving it zero time to get tender. I had allocated 18 hours for shoulders and briskets which should have been fine if we had decent heat. I thought the flavor, bark and smoke rings were good, just needed more time.

* Trying to do too much (thanks, Phil). Making rubs and sauces from scratch was probably stupid. I'll save the sauces for sauce competitions!

* Setting up on dirt. It looked great in the sun, next to the bathrooms and turn-in station, but the downpours turned it into a swamp.

* Not putting the smokers under or near a tent. Moving loaded smokers and a tent in a storm is a mess.

* Losing our main tent. Again, we set up on the end and had no buffers from the wind. At about 2am it lifted up and took off like a 12x12 foot kite, breaking a couple legs. Luckily we were able to bend them enough to put it back up, otherwise it would have been an even nastier night.

* Wet charcoal and newspaper. Trying to get chimneys lit in the rain when the paper is wet, the ground is mud and your underwear is soaked is some sort of lesson in how to do things better next time, right?

Anyway, after almost calling it quits last night, I know I can do much better then how we placed. All of the problems above are easily fixed and if I decide on 3-4 competitions for next year soon, I'll have time to get a regular team set, DIVIDE RESPONSIBILITIES, and get some more valuable insight from all of you. And thanks to Phil, Will and the guys for helping me see straight yesterday afternoon.

- Clint
