Default 2 guys with a mini van and two weber bullets make KCBS history

I hadn't seen this posted. If it has been - my apologies.
It does give us backyard'ers hope though.

Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ Team makes KCBS history

Mark Tung & Harry Soo of Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ with their 1st place ribs, 1st place chicken, 1st place pork, 1st place brisket, and Grand Champion trophies at the Stockton, CA Way Out West BBQ Championships.
It’s only been done once in KCBS history, but it’s never been done at a KCBS sanctioned State Championship.
That’s right. It’s a clean sweep of the four KCBS contest categories.

Harry Soo and Mark Tung of Slap Yo’ Daddy BBQ made KCBS history and California BBQ Association (CBBQA) history on the 4th of July weekend in Stockton, CA, at the Way Out West BBQ State Championship.

They won all four KCBS categories and scored over 49 points more than the Reserve Grand Champion team. Not a small feat by any means.

Mind you, they did this in what Harry Soo describes as a “rare winning streak,” of the four past contests with three consecutive California State Grand Championships and a Reserve Grand Championship amid 162 teams at the Great American BBQ in Kansas City.

These boys are hot! They are on fire! They are also very smart when it comes to BBQ. Harry and Mark had gone back to compete at the Great American BBQ on the invitational and open sides. Their first day, the fellas didn’t do so well against their Southern competition. Tastes were obviously a little bit different than in Southern California. You’ve heard Dorothy say, “We’re not in Kansas anymore.” Well Slap Yo’ Daddy was saying, “We’re not in California anymore.”

But that didn’t slow them down. They got their smokers going. By the way, this team uses just two Weber water smokers, i.e. bullets, and travels in a mini-van. They cooked up samples for their competitor neighbors and the passers-by. As people tasted, Harry and Mark took notes and gathered information about people’s likes and dislikes in this area of the country. Then they went back and re-formulated their recipes overnight to fit the local tasting profile. Those of you who have been around BBQ for awhile and have attended any of the high priced star studded BBQ classes will know that this breaks the major rule of “Never change your standard operating procedure or recipe during a competition.”

Thanks everyone for the well wishes. Mark and I are going cross country to compete the next several weeks and hope to meet many of you. I apologize for not posting often enough on this great forum but will start doing so. We're just a couple of backyard guys with Dilbertesque day jobs who love to smoke meats low and slow. We've had a fairy tale journey especially the last three months on the California as well as the national BBQ stage. I want to encourage all the backyarders out there with modest equipment that you too can compete in the big contests and do well!
