First competition!

Discussion in 'Upcoming/Recurring BBQ Competitions (KCBS or Other' started by smoke n my eye, Apr 19, 2010.

  1. Kanadan and Myself participated in the 1st annual east vs west ultimate bbq showdown in wildomar CA this weekend. It was a great event. It was an IBCA sanctioned event, the catagories were Chiken, Brisket, pork ribs, pork butt, beef ribs, & Tri tip. They were 47 teams that participated, including Harry Soo the Slap yo' Daddy team, and Notley Que. Well any way to make a long story short, we placed 3rd in tri tip and 9th in beef ribs. We were just excited to called, we didnt set our expectations to high being our first event and all. We already entered our second event, in Rosarito, BC, Mexico. Ill have pics up soon, thanks for all the help we recieved it means alot.

    You look very intense there, just before you cut the beef & cutting those ribs. BTW, they looked perfect on that smoker!! [​IMG] The cut was on point. That chicken looked so wonderful. Great job well done. [​IMG][​IMG]Looking forward to the aftermath.

    Congrats, I am hoping to compete in the future too. I am planning on it being awhile though. Hoping to find the right pit in the next year or so, and then competing after 9-10 years of practicing. Waiting until our last rugrat is at least ing high school, if not college, so the wife and I can travel while I compete.
     
  17. Thanks and that intense look i have is called exhaustion, also it was 90degrees and humid as heck. At that point i had been up for 35hrs straight.

  19. Thanks and yeah both guys were great, we talked with Harry for a while and he gave a cutting demo where he showed how to cut your meat correctly for competition, which i missed but heard was very informative. I cant wait until our next comp!!!
