After the success of last years event I really thought the event could not get any better. Boy was I wrong! The on site judging on Saturday was the most fun I have ever had cooking at an event. I really enjoyed having the opportunity to interact with a judge and explain what I made and why and was even better to have the opportunity to answer questions from them. Just about everybody I spoke with who did it and judged it had the same opinion.

Having Jay and Jimmy cooking side by side with me all weekend was a blast. We had a lot of laughs and it made it really memorable for me. It was also really great to witness history and see Jay cook on SW with a guru and no water . I was not smart enough to take a pic so I guess it never happened Even with the downpour of rain and wind we had Saturday it did not seem to break anybody's spirit.

On to my favorite topic of discussion, that damn 13th place chicken.
I still think it was fixed and I demand a recount!!!! All kidding aside I guess it really has come full circle . My first competition a few years ago at Grill Kings where I received my first of 13th place and then fast forward to my home contest and of course the one carries the Brethren name and get my 5th one is just insane. I wish i could say it was my last but serious doubt that.

I had alot of people asking also but you cant blame the Chamber or or Eric for this what i heard was a BBQ vendor had backed out very last min so they were stuck. I know they asked a few guys on friday but with such short noticed it was tough.

we had a great time at this event and if were aloud to come back we will. Thank you to Eric and the Chamber for doing a great job on this event yet again.

Just wondering? I didn't blame anyone, they did a great job. I just figured they had no interest.

Dude, I just had to check the scoresheets again. I'm in shock. After grilling all day Saturday, the rain and collapse canopy made it very hard to focus on BBQ yesterday. Luckily John helped me power through and just get stuff turned in. Quick highlights were:

*turning in 2 categories Saturday with ZERO seconds left and almost taking out the turn-in table on the last one.
* the inspiring words of Pastor Willie B Sunday morning
* witnessing the miracle that is Brendan put a fire out with his bare feet
* meeting so many new people
* Winning my first KCBS GC at Battle of the BBQ Brethren!!!!!

And thanks so much to Phil for his generous donation of a new 27" Weber to the GC. My wife is (sarcastically) thrilled! I posted some pictures at http://www.smokeindaeye.com/Pictures.php but would love any shots anyone got of the win.

1) The odd denominations on the checks are due to the fact that the entry fees went entirely back to the teams. As such, we couldn't decide on dollar amounts until all monies were in, so we went another route and decided on percentages. 5th place in Pizza gets X% of the total Grilling money and so on.

2) There was another BBQ vendor. Sparkys Texas BBQ of Farmindale. They backed out on THURSDAY NIGHT!!!!! If you are a Long Islander, please don't support this business. They didn't like the weather forecast and booked another gig that was closer to them and didn't tell us until the chamber called them.

Eric

Wow - that's totally farked up. These are the same guys that I tried to get involved with the Brethren for their grand opening, reviews, etc. and was basically blown off. Their loss.

Default Results follow-up

In addition to the Kettle generously donated by BBQ-Brethren.com, Smoke In Da Eye also won free entry into next years Hudson Valley Ribfest.

Grim Reaper Smokers won a $50.00 gift certificate to Maine Grilling Woods for best decorated lot.

We had one judge who was judging her 30th competition and another who traveled 475 miles to judge.

I won a pack of peppers (not pickled) from Purple Turtle and then NEVER GOT MY PRIZE!!!

Eric

Default Second Thoughts on the BBQ Circus

Well, its over for 2008, and I have to go the record and recant my previous rants above the Grilling Portion of the Contest. I WAS WRONG , yes it is the only the second time this year ... The Grilling Contest went very,very well, I had the chance to be a table captain and lead a team of on site judges it was just a great time. The food that was turned in was creative, tasty and well presented, lots of teams (22) went all out to turn in some really out of the box treats. However, the onsite judging part of the contest was just the best, having experience as a MIM judge, the rules and methods adapted to fit this contest worked just great, I got to see five onsite presentations and judge one, they were all way above average, and then there was Sledneck , who served each judge at least 2 pounds of lasngna along with olive oil pressed from his parents vines in native Croatia, who probably would have won if he listened to me and put blues hog sauce over his vanilla ice cream topped grilled pound cake. All in All it was great event, and while a certain carnival atomoshere did exisit with the midway in the backround, it was far from a circus, I know I will compete next year !
