My 1st KCBS competition ribs turn in box PICS

  1. This is what I turned in for my first competition in ribs on Sunday.

    I was happy with the final product :)

    I only tasted on of 'em but they were very tasty. I did a combo of my own rub, and Slap Yo Daddy Hot rub, along with my own sauce and some honey butter glaze. Cooked on a Weber Smokey Mountain for about 6 hours with Hickory and some spritzing with apple juice.

    I did receive a few 9's in appearance and flavor from some judges. No scores below 7 from any judges.  Overall very excited for my first competition with just myself and no experience other than the back yard. Didn't finish first but didn't finish last either.  Finished 20th out of 50 teams the with this box of ribs :)

    Thankfully I did two racks as a precaution because one of them got burned on the bottom during the foiling process yikes.  The second rack was perfecto, just the way I like them.

    If I finished in the top half in my first comp i'd be tickled ribless.

    Good job man, congrats on the competition I bet it was fun. Are you addicted now?
  16. Thanks everybody for the kind words of encouragement.  It was fun, but definitely a lot of work for a one man show... I will definitely  do another event, but not until next year.

    I learned a lot an met some cool people... ate some great BBQ too.
