Nelsonville Results

I just got back from the Nelsonville Contest. We had a great time. Some very disturbing events were uncovered but I'll talk about that in another post. I don't want to distract from the actual accomplishments of the cooks themselves. Special congratulations to Big Mike who won two first place trophies in Chicken and in Pork. Mike you did the forum proud, congratulations again!

Also Congratulations to everyone that helped spread the word and correct the misinformation about the contest. Rolling Smoke's Jim Ferguson, it was my pleasure to assist you in this effort and hope to cook beside you again. Also thanks to Cockeye BBQ, to Big Mike for joining the contest at the end to help increase the team field and to ZBQ for helping me get my entries out and for test tasting my products and help select them for turn in.

We had a total of 17 teams most of them signing up in the final week in the contest. The weather was absolutely beautiful (I got sunburned at Nelsonville! ). I promise we will field a minimum of 25 teams next year but the goal is 50 and a triple point competition (more about that later). Again, congratulations to all forum members, I believe all forum members got at least 1 top ten call (forum members highlighted in bold) with Big Mike and Cockeye BBQ taking home 1st place trophies! For me the best part of the contest was seeing all my friends and getting to experience Nelsonville under idealic conditions. Thanks again guys!

I had alot of fun and had the opportunity to cook on 3 different smokers. Dalls's Jedmaster, FEC100 and his Stumps. I learned a valuble lesson too. Pellet cookers don't function too well when the electric goes out at 4am!! [smilie=a_doh.gif] So my recomendation to anyone thinking of a pellet smoker is to never leave home for a comp without a generator! Luckily Dallas had the situation under control and switched the meats to the Stumps. If you ever need help again Dallas, just give me a shout.

It was really nice to see even more of the forum members. Eric and Stacy from Cockeye BBQ, Mike and his wife from Eagle River, Jim Ferguson and his wife from Rolling Smoke and Frying Pan Fran and her husband. I had some good laughs learning what a "Muffaletta sandwich" is from Stacy and I must say that they are mighty tasty!! [smilie=a_chuckle.gif] I'd never even heard of them and had to Google it to figure it out!

Congrats to all the forum members who took walks. Big Mike did us really proud with his 2 first place trophies!! [smilie=a_goodjob.gif]

I'm really looking forward to next year because I think the winds of change are going to breathe new life into this comp and make it even bigger and better than it ever has been.
You mean Judy's husband Fran...
