April 13, 2009 BBQ Competition  

Ralph belongs to a BBQ website. Through this website he
has learned much and met many fellow BBQ'uers. This past
April they decided to do an informal competition. Ralph
had to enter. This was to be a brisket competition,
we have only cooked one of these before, while camping
in a very windy desert (not ideal conditions.)
So Ralph had very low expectations...

Here is the meat prepped and ready to go.

Ralph prepping his arsenal of thermometers,
I think we should buy stock in a thermometer company!

Here I am prepping the containers to look pretty for the judges

Cutting the meat

The judges...

And the winner according to Audrey is....Daddy,
unfortunately the judges did not agree :(
BUT of the 25 or so people who entered, our 2 briskets came in
4th and 8th
Not bad for our first competition. Not to mention
some of the competition that got 2nd and 3rd places...they are professional caterers!

The girls with the Famous' Dave's Pig. This is where the
competition was at.

The aftermath...
Ralph stays up ALL night the night before something has to be "done"

cooking. As we were heading home he got the migraine to
beat all migraines. Poor baby!
