After talking with Finney about his 'close' finishes in prior cooks, I convinced him to switch exclusively to Wolfe Rubs and now look at the results!!!

Great job Finney!

Thanks guys.
Well... That was FUN.

Weeks ago (maybe months) they sent out pictures of the GC trophy (really cool blown glass). I printed 2 color copies of it and put one on the fridge and one on my wall at work. I told myself I was going to work as hard as I could to win it. If not the CG, then at least one of categories. I did several practice cooks to try out new combos of rubs and sauces to come up with what I ended up using. I even skipped a contest last month that I had planned on doing to work for this one.

I ended up with two plaques (5th Chicken, 5th Ribs), 3 trophies (Grand Champion, 1st Brisket, 3rd Pork), and a plate (NC Governor's Award).

And my wife said I was obsessing over it by doing all the stuff I was doing.... LOL
