Hopefully a milestone in the making


Here we go again. The last day of preparation before a competition and as such the nerves start to run a bit wild and the gut doesn’t seem to really settle down. I add to it with the thought of how I need to have a great cook. You would think I would be use to this routine by now, but it doesn’t really get much better. We are having a pretty good season and feel like anything less than the last comp isn’t acceptable. Each competition we prove to ourselves that we are competitive, but seem to be just out reach of a GC. If we could just get everything to come together in perfect harmony, at the same time, at the same event, then we would get our chance to stand out among the great teams that compete.

Plus, we are very close to having a bit of personal recognition as being a top 100 team in the 5 events or less division. This little accomplishment to some means a ton to us. All it would take is a 10th place or better finish in the categories to move us from:

Chicken 134th > 75th

Ribs 168th > 88th

Pork 451st > 254th

Brisket 222nd > 115th

Overall 238th > 127th

This would be out of 2010 teams competing in 5 or less events and it will only be our 4th event of the season. It helps to reassure us that we are on the right path in some categories.

Well it’s time to get back to getting the final things ready and maybe have a few beverages later.

Please take some time to visit our sponsors. Without their help we wouldn’t be able to be successful.

    And I don’t enjoy bbq compition season. Because I loose my husband and gain a cooking partener. That I never planned to have. But it’s your true love . And you put your heart and soul into it. I wish you “US” the best luck possible. I would love too see your face light up when you reach your goal of being a top 100 team. I would do it all over again for you. I would love to see you invited to the Jack Daniels and American Royal. Season is about over. And I will have my husband back. Good luck babe.
