Default So how tired of comps am I really getting?

I've been looking forward to taking a break from comps this summer... do a little traveling... fishing, breaking out the stored camping gear and spending some time at the lake. OK so this weekend, we go to Stockton Lake with about ten other couples and a lot of kids and what happens? We pull the smoker along and cook chicken, pork, brisket, beans, etc. for everyone for Saturday night dinner. And what's more, our camp site looked EXACTLY like our contest sites do.

Guess I need to re-think this take a break from contests thing because apparently, I can't even go away for a weekend trip to the lake without setting up a comp camp.

Maybe your comp site looks just like your camping site!

But was it more enjoyable than a comp? When i stopped competing i didn't stop smoking.

I wanted to cook bad this weekend, but my stuff is in the trailer in Des Moines. So thanks to Randy and Jeff of R Butts R Smokin, I went and joined them for a chicken practice this morning. And I learned a new trick that I hope will help keep chicken moist.

Honestly, I was looking forward to hearing the great comments that came during and after dinner but I don't know if it was more enjoyable. Everyone was quiet and sleeping by around 11 pm. None of them could have hung at a contest! Until you've stayed up all night drinking with Wayne, you haven't lived.

Jeff you know it is all good, cooking is cooking, Just think no entry fee!

First in every catagory, as I see it!

The camping and the cooking part is the fun stuff.....it's the set up, clean up and tear down I don't miss.....

The real question is if you shaved your chicken or not. If you brought your pink razor for something other than your legs, then you need to get back into the comp circuit.
