    ok.. So Steve (FloridaSteve) and I participated (on separate teams) in our local fair's BBQ comp for charity... here is Steve's post before the Comp... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/241195/last-practice-before-contest#post_1515442

    Before we go any further... I will say that I only have one pic... I'm not a big picture taker... Maybe Steve has more ...

    It was a chilly (55`) and VERY windy day...As usual, both of our Mini WSM's performed flawlessly ... I took skin off.. deboned.. trimmed fat.. scrapped fat of skin... brined for 2 hrs... rewrapped skin back on after brine... smoked for 2 hrs and then dredged them in sauce and back on for 20 minutes...

    Let me thank Meowy for posting this rub as that's what I used... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/100610/meowys-rub#post_564129


    I used a sauce that is bottled here in town.. Called Pat's Ho-Made BBQ sauce... mixed some brown sugar and honey in it...



    Proud to say that my partner (not a member here) and I, "Team Rufuze-2-Luze" , took 3rd place... from a limit of 12 teams... Our charity of choice is the local Boys and Girls club.. so $150 (1st-$500, 2nd-$300) goes to them in our names...

    All in all it was a blast... OHHHHH.. we also do a side comp with appetizers we pass around... ourselves as judges... I believe it was a blue crab cake slider that won that... I did pork shotz...
