    Looks like fun! Oddly enough my first comp, and so far only one, was also at a church. I was doing ribs and there was a mixup about when the gates would open. Long story short the gates opened about 2.5 hours later than I was planning which gave me exactly 4 hours to setup and smoke 4 racks of spares. Nailed it and took first! Can't wait for the next one in May. Just bump your smoker temps to 250ish and go 45 mins in foil with a high heat finish. Worked for me. Good luck and have fun!!!

    Dang beer at a Church function? I need to move to Texas...

     In the FBA their is no garnish, or sauce on the side allowed.

    It depends on what the rules are where your competing at as to the garnish and sauce.

    But when I compete where they allow garnish I use fresh Kale

    Hope you do well my friend!

    You need a shuttler to take the empty cans of beer from you and replenish them with full ones from off-premises. It sais only two cases but it doesn't say how many times...

    I think you have enough advice on the short order ribs so good luck with that..

    Well I know one thing I am taking two Ugly Drum smokers that need a new paint job and I plan to beat at least one person with a $2000 rig.  I bet I get a couple looks from some people when I unleash the beasts.

    Knocked it out of the Park 3rd place out of 22 teams in the Pork Ribs.  Could not have done it with out you guys.  You should have seen all the guys with their 5000 pits come ask me how a UDS works after I got my trophy.  Will post pics later after I recoup.

    Gotta love the Catholic Church (yeah I am Catholic).

    Attended a Baptist for a bit recently and that would be unacceptable. LOL

    Only problem with me is having two cases per team.

    .....I suppose if I was in it, my teammates would just have to drink water. lol

    They gave us a revised timeline that gave us pleanty of time for ribs.  Basically did a 3.5-1.5-1 over lump and pecan.  Foiled with Parkey, Rub and Brown Sugar finished with glaze the last 15 minutes.
