Default Our First Comp Of The Year

We just did our first comp of the year. A Texas Gulf Coast BBQ event in Houston called Hold Em & Hit Em. There were 109 teams there. We were lucky enough to get a 7th in Chicken, 8th in Ribs and 12 or 13 in Brisket. It sure was nice to get going for the year. I was a little stir crazy!!!! I couldn't stand to live in a part of the country where we had to go 3 or 4 months for an off season. How do you guy's do it? Is anyone else getting stir crazy?

Great job Jim! We just signed up for our first comp, but have to wait until June . But that could be a good thing. Need to get our practice time in and make sure we do ok. Somewhere on the Brethren, I saw a saying that I am going to steal "Have fun, but don't come in last". Words to live by.

We only plan on doing 3 comps during the summer. It's just to hot for my fat butt! We will have done 8 by the end of May.
