On October 20 the Swamp Boys full crew headed up to the cool small town of Jesup GA to compete and vend. The weather was great and the girls had a blast going in all of the small shops on Main Street. The crowds were consistent all day long and the crew sold out before awards! And speaking of awards, Swamp Boys didn’t do too badly. We got a 3rd in Chicken, 8th in Pork, and 1st in Brisket making us 4th overall out of 29 pro teams.
Mulberry Fine Swine at the Pit, Oct. 8, 2011
It turned out to be the wettest weekend in something like 100 years. Our area received 7+” of rain in 2 days of nonstop showers. Fortunately my BBQ trailer keeps me high and dry. I was happy to be able to put together a solid cook in all 4 categories, and a few tweaks I tried seemed to work. I scored a 4th in chicken, 1st in ribs, 4th in pork, 6th in brisket, and Reserve Grand Champion.
