Re: anybody going to memphis in may bbq contest got back
Got back from Memphis and had a ton of fun. The team took a 3rd place in seafood. Here is a list of some of our scores.
Seafood 3 out of 93 479.4 points out of 480
Exotic 33 out of 65 463.9 out of 480
Hot-wing 79 out of 98 444.1 out of 480
Poultry 12 out of 93 474.8 out of 480
Beef 48 out of 92 456.7 out of 480 The kid that cooked the beef was bummed at were he placed. We all gave him a pep talk. There a bunch of trained chefs in this crowed. Our ambassador told me one chef was cooking for 4 different teams in these categories. He entered a beef tenderloin. He has never cooked a beef tenderloin in is life.
I took pictures. I will be sending them in the mail this week to our web master. Check our team web site in about a week and a half if you want to see some pictures.
Cool Smoke BBQ team was our next door neighbor. They placed first in shoulder. I think we got 38th. I was honored to be able to eat some of there judged pork after the judges left from the final judging. I think when you get to the competition level in BBQ you are sometimes splitting hairs taste wise. The BBQ was very very good as was our teams and some of the other teams I had. But cools smokes appearance of the BBQ is the best I had ever seen. They really made it a thing of beauty.
