Humble Cookoff

It's been a looooooog time since I stayed up for 40 hours straight. We drove in from Houston this afternoon and shortly thereafter I fell asleep. I just woke up from a little snooze. Ahhhh.... yep the first comp was a whole lot of fun. There were 113 teams, Crapshoot BBQ hit 7th in chicken and 9th in brisket. 7th through 10th paid $125.00 so we covered some expenses there. I had a great time and now I'm going back to bed.

There is a lot to be said for joining an existing team with winning recipes. Makes you look good overnight. All the credit goes to Texana and BBQ Doug. I'll tell you what though, when they decided to take me on as a team member they made me an equal partner, quality guys those two.

I have to echo those same comments about Woodman and Uncle Bubba, treated me as an equal member right from the start. Even though I think Woody gets more sleep.

Sorry for the late posting but congrats on those finishes I hope I do half that good on May 4 and th in North Augusta at our first comp. The team has decided to do just buts instead of doing ribs as well.
