My First competition results

  1. Well, my first competition has come and gone. It was an amateur comp not far from my house at the KY State BBQ Festival in Danville, KY. Ribs only. While I hated everything about my ribs, color, taste, etc. I did end up taking 3rd place. I was totally shocked. I was pretty discouraged going to the awards. When they called my name, I just sat there. My wife hit me and said, "that's you!" I was 2.5 points out of first. I had a great time, met some great folks, and ate some great ribs. Can't wait to do another comp soon.

  9. That's great news. I'm my own worst critic too, so having someone else think your food was better than you were thinking is always a nice surprise. I can't wait to find one here in San Diego I can go to and test my skills out.
