    Conrats on the 2nd.
  4. Congratulations on placing in your first competition! Wondering if you took and have any photo’s of the event so that we all can look at. How did you cook the pork, brisket and ribs to get how you say “We got killed”? Do you have any photos of that? Practice does make perfect.

    Good Luck next time. Looking forward to those photos!

    Forgot to ask earlier ... did you get good feedback on the pork, brisket and ribs to know why you did not finish well?

    Just used a homeade rub & then added bbq sause we used thighs. We also got good feedback on the brisket from the judges, the ribs we just flat screwed up probably the worst ribs we made since we started. made another batch for some friends & they all compliminted that they were beter than any of the vendors there!!! pork we did not add any sauce & most others did so we'll work on that next time. Overall was a great learning experience & we actually came out ahead money wise!!!!!!
