Default Desert Dweller's first Competition

I was invited to join AZBarbeque as a team member (pb) for the Williams, AZ Comp. I never knew. I never knew there was soooo much work involved, so much money invested, etc., etc.. I think, if memory serves me, we placed 19th from a field of 28, and I guess that ain't too bad for a team who had never cooked together with a pitmaster who was mastering his first competition pit. I had fun, in an exhausted & physically debilitated way...

The pictures are of the Team; Don, Phil (PM), me and Jerry. Then Phil and Don in conference discussing the secrets of our success. Then a couple of rare shots of me working. A couple shots of the cooker, it's a very nice DiamondPlate Brand. Also included is a picture of the JA BBQ Team's Mascot. Many pictures were taken of this Mascot, caught in staged compromising positions with several of the contestants sometime after the Midnight Appetizer (and booze) Party... No, I did not get caught in such a pose, I was just waking up at the motel to return to the comp for night shift duty...

Draining; absolutely! Welcome to the group of nuts! Did 'ya have fun?

We usually do. Honestly, the little down time after final turn-in to awards
I use it to clean up (obviously) then run around the event and see stuff,
otherwise I'd fall asleep (being completely exhausted).

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Nice pics! Is that a little portable water heater I see using the small propane tanks? Who makes that? Coleman? I'll google as well.

Yes, it's a Coleman. They make 2 models. One requires a water hose connection, the other will pump out of most any container. You can also get an adapter for the 20lb tanks (the little ones get expensive)

How about "A Long Ways Away" BBQ? I am sure I am not ready for this if I am the only financier.
