Well the mock kcbs style comp went great.we finally found what we think are good for turn-ins hopefully the judges think the same.Also Alan and I want to thank our wive's for being "widow's"

during our practice times and also all the people who have eaten ALOT of bbq these lasty couple of weeks.Last thing is to thank our friend Bill and his team Smokin Hoggz on there wins in the grilling part of Harpoon this weekend.

Congrats to lakeside smokers again for rgc award at Harpoon! Hopefully we get to compete there next year. Getting ready to run another practice with the new rubs, injections and some new sauces .Also starting to get ready for the first catering job as luck would have we have 2 jobs and one party to cook for all the same week as Eliot.So hopefully that gives even more pratice and hopefully a gc to send us to jack daniels.

2 1/2 WEEKS

First of all, Congrats to Mike and Kris of Lakeside Smokers for GC in Troy!! See you both in Maine!
Chickens came out great. Of all the different rubs and marinades, we found 2 that we really liked. Now its time to run a "mock" competition schedule to try all the different things we've tried to make sure that they all work.

Cooking about 60 pcs of chicken on monday .we liked it but still needs work....just like most teams everyone seems to think of chicken as an after thought.hopefully we find a way that will win with the judges.We are trying 4 different marinades and 3 different rubs our sauce will stay the same.Also I wanted to thank everyone for there support and sponsorship especially Rose and Andrea for developing the logo and website for us.

Well the brisket trial went great .Alan did great manning the smoker as I had to work.....5 briskets by yourself can be a daunting task plus 4 racks of beefribs and 2 racks of st.louis just for fun.Out of 5 ,two were inedible ,thanks to a long soak in meat tenderizer.Two other's were completly good for turn-in and one was the what I hope to turn-in everytime.Next on the trial run is chicken .Eliot will be here soon.

One of the things I needed to do was pratice after our disappointing score with the brisket Alan and I decided we would smoke about 5 brisket's differant ways to get the best results.So I got differant grades (choice,prime,and waygu) and we'll see what happens.Hopefully we find on that works Eliot,me will be here before you know it.
