Belmont Ny Que contest

Had the opportuniy to hang out with Nick and Steve, Of South Shore Smokers, at the NY State Championship at Belmont, ... Could not have met a nicer, salt of the earth kind of guy..A person you like to hang out with at contests I only did the turn in boxes for them, so I''ll let him tell you how they did.. If Nick was nice to his wife, maybe he can get the pictures from her that she took of Nick and Steve's entries..

Had a great time competing this weekend. We came in 25th out of 43 teams. It was the first time competing and had the goal of not coming in last so we suceeded . Now that its out of the way i know what has to be done to improve. Our best score was Nicks chicken which came in 13th. It tasted out of this world but one apparently stupid judge brought the score down with a 5 7 6. Didnt make sense as compared to the same chicken getting 878 899 888. Strangely enough the brisket which i overcooked and turned in small pieces cause it did not stay together and should come in last did way better than the pulled pork which was i thought was one of the best pulled pork i have ever done so go figure. I think they need to overhaul the judging system or at least make it that you competed in at least one contest before being allowed to become a judge so you know whats its like. Bobs turn in boxes were awesome. Funny thing is he was just stopping by saturday night to hang out until we took him prisoner and made him do our boxes Overall the experience was great. Hung out with some great folks and ate so much food. I also had the pleasure of eating one Nicks rolled fatties. It was reaaallll hot this weekend and the contest was a bit unorganized but i would definately compete again.
Thank You Nick, Bob and my son Steven

Well it seems we all had a great time! Steve didn't mention his ribs, which were fantastic! This was the first comp I ever competed in and had no idea what to expect. Steve had done one other comp earlier this year and it sure seemed like Bob has done a few. These guys are being kind to me, the chicken was good but should have been better. I think they all had a good laugh at how nervous I was cooking the chicken and trying to find the right pieces to turn in. These two guys were great to hang with for the weekend and hope we can all do this again together. I know I learned a lot hese past 2 days. The people that were at the event were great folks. It seems everybody helps each other out and down time is fun time. Steve also didn't mention that he made Croatian sausage that were out of this world. Saturday night after everything was up and running we ate ourselves sick! Clams casino, spaghetti and clams, prime rib, abts, croatian sausage, fatties and beer! These comps are great to go to just to eat! All in all I had a great time and already I'm changing a couple of things with the chicken for "next time"! And yes Bob, I was nice to my wife and she gave me the pictures, I'll try and post them later. Thanks for a great time guys, next time were going to move up a couple of spots!

Steve wrote >>> brought the score down with a 5 7 6.<<< maybe that judge noticed the broken box #-o btw i missed the Croatian Sensation's Sausage... There's Harpoon this w/e, and Higland Aug 18th.. do I hear Road trip!!!!

Truth be told, any problem that was had with the meat was from overcooking it and dryness..not taste... Heat was major factor.. Heat index had to be 100* , or higher, and on asphalt.. I'll bet if you guys cooked this event next week, month , or year, knowing what you know now, you will not cook as long, or to the temp you would normally do... great learning experience , whre things can, and were learned be learned..
