Cooked with a buddy of mine this past weekend in Sugar Creek, MO. It was a KCBS comp and it was his second ever. I've been helping him get into competing this year and it's been quite the learning experience for me too. I've never had to do boxes before, until these last two comps. It's a lot more difficult than I thought.
Anyway, we took 21st out of 52. Here are the results with pics of the turn-in boxes. I'm not totally proud of all the boxes, but they are a far cry better than our first comp we did 5 weeks ago.
I cooked chicken and ribs and he did pork and brisket.
Chicken (9th out of 52)
Ribs (28th out of 52)
Pork (25th out of 52)
Brisket (31st out of 52)
There was a lot of good competition there and we know where we could improve, but all and all it was a good time. I'm sure he and I will team up again later this summer. My usual team (Father-in-law, Brother-in-law and his Father-in-law) compete in our first comp in two weekends. I'm really looking forward to that comp. We haven't cooked together since last October.
Constructive critisism welcome. I know things are different when in the moment and looking at a pic afterwards, but hearing what you have to say helps out.
Thanks for looking.
