Back from Roc city. What a competition. Sun, beach, beer, friends - just amazing. Oh yea, and there was a competition. Actually 3. KCBS BBQ on Sunday, Ribfest on Saturday and NEBS grilling on Saturday. We entered all but the grilling.
I'm still tabulating the scoring, but I do believe this competition will get an "A" from us and MAYBE the designation as the best event we have ever done. Our site was top notch - front row beach access. Shade, lots of room. Close to fresh coffee (free), catered dinner (free), delivered ice (free), bathrooms (free of course) and far enough away from the main stage.
If the organizers of Roc City Ribfest are reading.....We are in for next year if you promise to hold that spot! Looking forward to it already.
Results? Ribfest - 6th out of 104 teams. KCBS - 5th out of 69 teams with a 2nd in pork and ANOTHER 6th place rib call. As Chris Hart (I-Que) said, "just sooo consistent!". Thanks Chris and congrats on a great weekend for you and your team.
