Well harvard was very fun we had 5 calls including first place peoples choice for pulled pork.Also we met up with our good friends Smokin Hoggz and had a great time with them.We also met the guy's from Dogs in smoke and hung out with them also.It was cold 34 degree's in fact so cold there was frost on my tent. With the photo's posted you will get to see what I'm talking about .

Also I want to thank Mike from lakeside smokers with all the advice he has given us about competing. Humphreys charcoal was nice enough to sponsor us so thanks to Chad and Nicole for that and thanks to bill (Smokin Hoggz )for introducing us.Unfortunately this is our last competition for this year and hopefully we will do 5 comps next year god luck to the teams going to the jack and to the teams still competing this year.
