Default Introducing the Midnight Ramblers

This might belong in the Competition area but I just wanted to blow my horn.
My son and I entered a "Best Chicken and Ribs" contest held at a BBQ class at the Cascade County Cookoff in Chehalis, WA as the Midnight Ramblers.

The class was taught by Rick and Kate Naug of "Badges, Brews and BBQ's" and assisted by David Hensley of "Doc's Pit BBQ"







We did a brisket packer and pork butt for ourselves and a whole chicken and rack of spares for turn in. I didn't take many pics because I was BS'n with everyone! There were a lot of new Q'ers in the class, and I lent a WSM out and cooked some others meat on one of the drums.










I didn't get a pic of my Chicken turn in but did get my Ribs!
7th Place!


We got a First Place trophy for Chicken! Bennett accepting the trophy



We came in Second overall and also won the prize for "Friendliest Booth" I think it had to do with the fatties I passed around!
My son also won the door prize, A brand new WSM, fruitwoods,briqs, knives and chimney!




We had a great time! And my son said he had more fun than he thought he would! He's not laughing at me now! I'd like to thank the Naugs,www.applecreektimberinc.com, Doc,PNWBA, the Wal-Mart and the Popes Place Kids folks that made the day!

what a weekend to remember. sure wish my son's would cook with me - I got em both a nice cooker last christmas and was invited over for dinner not long ago for the first time since then and guess what we had "seafood boil". when I asked about the cooker he said he didn't like the way the charcoal popped out on him when he lit it with propane. boy was I hot and thought about heavin that cooker over the deck, but I was good and didn't let him know how dissapointed I was and besides he did a hell of a job on the seafood boil.

Congratulations to you and your boy! I'm hoping to be doing the same when my kids get a bit older. At ages 6 and 4 they are already excited about my bbq, but they can't help a whole hell of a lot.

Those ribs, pulled pork, and brisket look awesome. Congrats again!

Major League Congrats Neighbor! Sorry I couldn't make it down Saturday.. looks like I missed a great time. "BZ" to Bennett...looks like the "itch" as well as "luck" (door prize) runs in the family. He can now do a lot of "Q" for his bro's at the frathouse. See you at the Eggfest...

Aren't those guys too skinny to be BBQ cooks?

Congrats! Looks like a great day!

Congratulations.
Great little father/son "bonding" experience.
Hopefully having a good first outing got him hooked.
