Unfortunate mistake at this weekends BBQ Cookoff :(

This weekend in our company cookoff we had 20 teams and brisket was the game. Didnt palce this year had a drop of the ball. I left at about 11pm after i preped the brisket and loaded the reverse flow with 8 briskets. I was planning to feed a couple of hundred so I added about 20 slabs of ribs. When I got back at 5am my fire hand was gone and my smoker temp was at 100degrees. The meat was at 140 and i had till 11am to have time for brisket to sit for and hour. Well when i pulled the brisket and wrapped they looked ok but when i was ready to cut to surve and pick the winner They were dry on top of the brisket and almost pullable on bottom and ends. I figured that the juices flowed out when the temp dropped over night. I was still able to feed people but wasnt comp materal. My smoke ring was less than 1/4in and the cuts were dry. The taste was great but i couldnt get past the dryness. Like i said didnt place in the top 7 but i will find out where i stand on monday. I know now never leave you rig alone not even if you fed 300 the day before and is dead tired.



That did go great the first day I smoked a 80# hog and 10 slabs of ribs and 3 briskets. It was a party and they all love my food. Dont know it the drinking had anything to do with that . Well now bragging right this year at work. Here are some pics sorry this year my wife didnt take that many pics. I was to busy feeding the crowd. Enjoy.

Regardless of how you think things turned out or how much folks had to drink, you did great and your food looks awesome! If your ever in SoCali you can cook at my party anytime.
