Zoo B Que was a fun contest again this year. It was held at the Racine, WI zoo, which is a nice location right on Lake Michigan. The Zoo coordinates other events including a CEO Grill-off for local company CEOs, a People's Choice competition and a couple of bands on Friday night and a Kid's Q and more live music on Saturday. These events brought out a lot of spectators which made the hole weekend more fun.

We had quite a few Brethren teams there including regulars GGriffi (Bassackwards BBQ) and Papa Hogg (Papa Hogg and the Piglets) and some of the better known local teams who visit the Brethren forum once in a while such as Scottie (Cancer Sucks Chicago.com), BillM (Chi Town Smokers), although Perry and Rob were cooking without Bill who is taking some time to concentrate on his sauce business, Kate and Alex (Dr. Porkenstein), Seth and the guys (Porkcrastinators), Rick and Shawn (Smoke Hunters) and Ulcer Acres (Randy, cooking solo).

There were 30 teams overall with most of them coming from the Midwest. Florida Skin-N-Bones came up to vend and also to grab the GC trophy (Congrats!). The Get Your Wild Game on team ended up DAM (Dead A$$ Middle). We were a bit disappointed in this since we thought that our food was pretty darned good, but you never know what the judges will think. I posted some pictures in the "News Flash" thread in Wood Pile. Otherwise I didn't take may pictures around the competition. Here's a couple of additional pictures plus our turn ins.



Todd and the boys from Bass Ackwards BBQ posing for a picture with the Piggly Wiggly Pig.

Rick from Smokehunters really liked our kitchen, especially the hot running water. He used the sink and in return we made him the honorary "Dish Bitch" for the competition



Here's Greg (Parrothead) working on the Brisket turn-in...



Here are the turn-ins. We lost a point or two on appearance (8s and 7s) so any constructive criticism would be appreciated.

I can't comment on the turn-ins b/c I'm a novice.

However, the idea of the contest at the zoo intrigues me. We're members of the Nashville Zoo and I think it would be a great way to raise money and bring in a different demographic to the site.

Congrats to all the Brethren teams who did well.

So did the teams get to camp overnight, or did you guys have to leave on Friday night also?

Ron,

The kids names were Carley Pigg, Skyla Stanley, and Dominic Fontana. For the record, my better half wanted me to tell you she is NOT one of the boys on the team! She is on the other arm of the PW pig. Also, looking at your pics I don't know how you all didn't do better. We still can't believe that we made our first walk yesterday.

Thanks! Is Carley's last name really Pigg? How appropriate

Tell your wife I am sorry... I didn't look that closely

Pics look good... A little too heavy on the sauce in my opinion. I think the ribs and pork looked the best but the ribs look like a bit heavy on the sauce too. The chicken looks like it has a very light color underneath with a heavy coating of BH. Brisket is nice and even, but the sauce is so heavy, I cant even see the fibers of the meat. Looks more like bacon slices with that red color all over.

With that said, I'd like to have some of all of them so ship them up my way !!

Vinny, seems in the Great Lakes area, you HAVE to use a lot of sauce or the judges don't think it's BBQ. Ford Allison told me that once and we didn't pay enough attention when we did Grand Rapids.

Ron, both the chicken and the brisket look like they're missing sauce in some areas. Brisket has some pieces of what looks to be bark in the sauce lying on the surface of the slices. I'd remove those. Curious to know how your pork scored. Given the Great Lakes sauce "rule", I might have used more sauce on it. It does look excellent though... not dry looking at all. Good bark. The lower left rib seems like it has a piece sticking off the end near the exposed bone that detracts from the score. I'd score them: Chicken - 7, Ribs - 8, Pork - 9, Brisket 8. Did you guys glaze the sauce after you put it on the chicken and ribs or just paint it? I like to carmelize it a bit over high heat to make it nice and sticky. Could just be the photo but they look "wet". Where's the smoked meerkat?

Heavy sauce was the only thing I would say also.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. The sauce does look heavy in the pics. I didn't think it was that heavy in person. We also missed the bit of bark on the brisket and the bit on the ribs. Greg has the score sheet so I don't remember the scores.

This brings up an interesting question... Do you think that the judges would pick up on those things? When I judged we had about 5 seconds to look at each entry before we had to write down a score. I just wonder if they would notice those little things in that short of time. Obviously they noticed something

Interesting scores, Jeff. The chicken actually scored the best and the brisket the worst. The ribs and pork were in the middle.
