In the end, we finished 5th in Chicken, 4th in Ribs and 2nd in Brisket (Our FIRST Brisket call of the year!!!!) and 3rd overall. It was a good contest and we had a lot of fun.
We have been to Ashland before with our old team, however this marked the first time we went to the Fall contest. Tammy and I pulled in early Friday morning to find that we had choice of sites.....so naturally we picked the one with the only 30 Amp plug :) After getting things set up and the air going in the trailer, Tammy used her spare time to get caught up on reading and Kevin decided to get caugt up on some sleep. (Side note, if you have never slept in an enclosed trailer with air conditioning, it is like a cave, a very nice, cold, dark cave). We decided to bring our Schnauze Sydney along on the trip with us this time and she had a blast saying hi to everyone around.The contest was a lot of fun. Our friends Piggin and Grinin' LLC were there as well as Candy from BBQrs Delight who won Grand that weekend (Congrats Candy!!). The contest was held in conjunction with the Benton County Fair which had all of the fair goods AND a rodeo. Well, being from Michigan, I do not know what a rodeo is and had to check it out. Bull Riding, calf roping and rodeo clowns and all...it was an experience.
