I owe this forum so much it is not even funny. I have learned everything I know about cooking ribs from you guys. I was always a brisket man but now Ribs are my most consistant category. Also took 10th in chicken with my brine I posted ealier this week. This was a big event hoasted by TGCBA with several of the top 10 teams in the state. It was my first 1st place and I got 4th overall. I now am Qualified for the National BBQ Championship in Meridian Texas over 300 teams will be there. Gonna have to find a few sponsers to make it but I have 6 months to get that inline. It was this forum that taught me how to make my drum smokers and I get funny looks when I cook on them. How they like us now. Will post pics in a bit.
