We came back early Friday morning to get all of the major setup stuff done. I tried to smoke some bologna, but let the egg run away and had two large chared chubs....oh well. We went to the cooks meeting which was a first for my mom, and then headed back to the site to start the Anything Butt contest. My mom wanted to give it a shot so we told her to come up with something good.....Crab AuGraten....and it was good....she got a 3rd place call with it so we made her go up by herself to get the award.
A little later we got to work on our meats and everything looked good. The folks and Tammy went back home for the night and I lit the Eggs and headed to bed for a nap. Well...the air mattress had a hole in it....fun night there....anyway, got up to get things rolling and we were good to go, the Gurus did their jobs perfectly and all was perfectly on time.
Got up early to head to the cooks breakfast, full spread of Eggs, Bacon, Sausage, Biscuits and Gravy..the works...I said this was a great contest. We did our thing when turns ins came around and then headed to awards.
We ended up taking a 4th in Chicken, a 1st in Pork and overall 4th. We were really proud of this finish and see things heading up for us. We were really glad to have in both of our folks for this contest, hopefully we can get them out to more down the road. We know our next for sure contest will be in September, but if we can, look for us in Birmingham in August......
