    Tomorrow it all begins, mouth watering ribs/pulled pork and brisket. [​IMG]
    I might die from a meat overdose this weekend. I'm also fishing in a flounder tournament on Saturday down there. They probably are firing up their smokers right now!!!![​IMG]
     
  5. I'll be down there Sunday, I believe. Judging is Sunday. Saturday there is a chili competition in Millville.

    Well, I went to the NJ BBQ event on Saturday. Great atmosphere, weather, music, beer, etc. However when it came time for the BBQ I was not impressed. We got some racks, pulled pork sandwiches and brisket sandwiches. When we ate the ribs everyone immediately said that the ones I smoked last week were better. [​IMG] I was not impressed by the pulled pork or brisket either. Now it could have been just the stand we decided to order from or that I am a great smoker/cooker. [​IMG]

    We've gone the past few year but missed this year. The actual championship food isn't what you're eating. You've got all of those vendors there that are producing large quantities so are gong for quantity vs. quality. I was never impressed with anything that was from the vendors. What I really enjoyed was being able to walk through the competitors area and checking out how they were plating and different rigs and such.

    The two things I really liked there as far as food, was a roasted corn guy and an old fashioned soda "jerk". Plus it's close enought to hit the boards for a slice of Mack's pizza and a funnel cake!![​IMG]

    My thoughts too, but still....[​IMG]

    Mack's pizza is one of the best around. [​IMG]
    I thought the beer stands were pretty nice too. [​IMG]

    We will just go with you being a damn good smoker.

    I completely forgot that was this past weekend, don't think I would have been able to make it anyway, maybe on Sat. but I guess I'm glad I didn't bother to go, especially if things weren't all that great.
    Shame you couldn't eat competitors items, that probably would have been pretty good.
    Get any pics of the event?

    Yes the wife and I tried Butch's and were not impressed. He shows how proudly he beat Bobby Flay but Flay ain't no BBQ-er. We looked at each other They were OK, well mine made at home tasted better then his championship ribs. Could be because he was just mass producing them for profit. We will be back next year (2010).
