back from outer space

  1. Hey it's been a LONG time since my last visit. Hopefully back to stay.

    Long story short:
    Judged 25 KCBS Events for summer 2009, Have 3 to go for Master. Cooking for Master in early may...

    Judged the Royal, invitational and open. Pulled double duty for the open they were so short on judges.... Had a pretty good time. Watched 'em film some of that Pitmaster show. I'm certain I'll find the thread concerning Myron & add my two cents worth!

    Have been cooking for two years here at home and am getting much better. Still have great enthusiasm. May sell the smoker & build a new one, but not certain, YET!

    More to come,

    Welcome back to smf!
  7. Really appreciate the welcome back. Feeling like I need to re-learn the SMF! Can't wait for spring and the smell of BBQ in the morning.

    Just smoked four racks and a bunch of thighs last night. (I added the chicken trimmings to the bacon and onions for the beans, was delicious!)

    Welcome back and thanks for all the judging.

    Way too easy to complain about the judges but never thank them for coming out and doing the job.

    Welcome back. 25 events in one summer. That's a lot. What was the furthest distance you traveled.

    Oh yeah, you'll find several threads talking about Myron. What were your first hand experiences with him?

    Welcome/welcome back Mikey!
    Judging all those comps I can't wait to see some of the deliciousness you smoke at home!
  15. thanks so much EVERYONE for the welcome back. I've been rather busy..... tomorrow I judge #30 at Wisconsin Dells. I'll send off for the Master Judge test on Monday.

    My friend, Herb Kane, (Smokin' Herb ) and I have just been going crazy. We've great enthusiasm and appreciation for barbeque.

    I've had lots of comments from judges and enthusiasts alike about the 25 contests in a year! There are folks out there with 9 or 10 years as judges who don't have 25 yet, so it's probably strange to hear that I've so many with so little time as a KCBS member.

    My original intent was to get involved with judging bbq so that, eventually, I could open my own shack right here in Iowa. You know, learn what tastes good...well, one thing lead to another & guess what! Lots of travel & lots of bbq.

    I've learned a great deal. BBQ people are pretty darn friendly.

    The farthest we traveled was about 4.5 hours, to a contest in southern MO. Hoping to go to Memphis in May next year, and I'd love to travel further.

    Hope to hear from everyone--- thanks for making me feel welcome.
