Stagecoach, CA. Sunday awards ceremony. The bbq community really showed their love for a loss of one of their own...

That will be with me for the rest of my life.

For me it was when Big T's won the GC at the BBQlossal. The look on Ryan's face was unbelievable, as was their fan club!

I would have loved to be at the Royal to see Boondoggle take the GC in the open division - but hearing about it was another highlight.

Then there was the guy across from us in Nevada who puked all over the front of himself while we were talking with him...

The whole season had an awful lot to recommend it. We got to go back to a number of comps we really like, and went to some new ones we really liked too.

26 contests

7 GCs: Tempe AZ, Hesperia CA, the double GC (KCBS/IBCA) in one day at Stagecoach, Durango CO, Fairfield CA, Prescott AZ.

7 RGCs: Costa Mesa CA, Eagle CO, Vista CA, Fairfield CA, Salt Lake City UT, Lancaster CA, Tempe AZ.

And about the first minute of this.

I'll undoubtedly think of more things along the way, but one of the first that springs to mind is the birth of the Legend of "One Sock".

Big T'z winning 3 in a row
Boondoggle and Plowboy wins at the Royal
A conversation with Walt and T of the Smokin Scottsman after the Royal invitational awards(it was quick but I won't forgot the feeling of pride we shared)
Getting a glimpse of the "big check" and figuring out that Buster Dog had won in South Dakota before the awards even started
Getting my 180 pin in Brisket in Albert Lea and dancing around like a school girl after

I could go on and on...its was a great year and I can't wait for 2010

Here are my Top 3:

1. Taking first place in Brisket at the Jack
2. Winning Hudson Valley Ribfest. It was the first Grand Championship and State Championship for us all. And we did it together. As a result, we were lucky enough to get the NY State Home State Draw for the Jack.
3. Organizing a contest, and hosting a Great Field of Competitors

It was quite a year. We started out by forming a new team, and hitting the road. The road was not always smooth or kind, and we pressed on through the triumphs and challenges. We learned a lot along the way, and were fortunate to spend time with old and new friends. Hard to believe it went by so fast.

For me, there were SO many great moments in 2009 related to barbeque...

Unveiling our whiskey barrel top grand prize at our contest we put on in Pleasant Hill.

Getting our first ever Ribs Championship in Richmond, MO (was the only category we'd never won).

Our 8 year old daughter getting 9th out of over 60 adults in the Wings contest at the GAB and getting to go up to get her ribbon. One of the organizers was sitting near me and looks over and says "Did she really cook them herself?" I proudly said "YEP!!!"

Our daughter winning both categories and getting a huge trophy for Grand Champion of the Kids Q at Sedalia, MO.

Getting a 1st in Chicken and a 2nd in Pork in the incredible field of championship teams at Great Bend, KS.

Getting to compete in the small town (Califoirnia, MO) where I grew up and seeing several classmates I hadn't seen since the end of 8th grade.

Getting to announce my candidacy for the BOD to many friends during a Friday night potluck at Harrisonville, MO.

The entire Blue Springs, MO contest.

Putting on a contest with my friends Jon and Clara Williams where I work as part of Senior Q Month.

Spending a weekend teaming up with Stan Hays, Lee Keith and Randy Robinett to cook a contest together even though we got it handed to us!

Getting to visit the Jack for the first time in my life. (now if only I could compete there someday...)
