I was excited to compete for the first time in this 2nd year contest in Apopka. It’s not too often there is $10,000 up for grabs for Grand Champion. The big money brought out lots of teams, 81 in fact. I was really focused and all my entries were right where I wanted them to be. Only thing was maybe the brisket was a touch too tender. Unfortunately the judges didn’t see it my way in 3 of my categories. But that happens, so I will do the exact same thing next time and hope the judging goes in my favor. That’s all we can do! But in ribs the table of judges I got DID agree with me and I had terrific scores. I missed a perfect score of 200 by half a point and got 1st place out of 81 entries, setting the high score in ribs for the year. That along with my other less-than-stellar scores put me in 9th overall. Not what I wanted but a top 10 at least.
The Swamp Boys sauces have been selling like crazy. So much so that inventory is getting really low. More will be ready soon but labels will hold us up. I am hoping than in 10-14 days we will be back up to full stock in all sizes and flavors. Thanks for being patient during these growing pains. On a great note my sauce played a role in people winning a lot of money in Apopka and that is cool!
