5th Chicken, 5th Ribs, 9th Pork, 1st Brisket, GRAND CHAMPION/32 Teams
I got to go to this contest it’s first year and had a great time. I missed going up there last year, so I was happy to see that it worked with my schedule for this summer. The drive up was 8 hours and I arrived around 10:30pm. I got out of the truck and right away felt the heat and humidity. It was still 86 degrees at 10:30 at night! Needless to say the heat was the talk of the weekeend with highs in the low 100’s during the day.
I wasn’t real happy with what I turned out, it seemed like the raw product wasn’t real good to begin with. Guess that shows what I know! The judges liked it, and the Swamp Boys earned their 4th qualifier towards the Jack Daniel’s Lucky 7. It’s gonna be real tough to get there at this point, but I’ll sure give it a try! Thanks to Elba for all the hospitality 🙂
