Number Called

I entered my second cookoff this past weekend and to my surprise had my number called and took the walk to pick up my 7th place chicken. I also made final table on ribs and brisket (12th and 15th I think). I was really worried that my chicken might get DQ as we had 4" of rain on Saturday morning and my wood got wet, pit temps were low(but steady at 185*) and I pulled it at 180* in the thigh. But all went well. Gonna try again next month at a rather large cookoff.

Thanks guys! I was in shock when they called my number, even for a 7th place chicken. The wife told me that all I could say was "You got to be kidding, right?" as I walked up to get my ribbon. I've still got to find a way to cook that sauce on though. I brushed it on 30 minutes before I pulled it off the pit and it was still wet. I was even warned to cook it on thoroughly next time at the turn in. I mixed a bunch of honey in the sauce thinking that would crystalize on the bird, but that didn't work. Any suggestions?

Who warned you, and what did they say exactly? Nothing wrong with wet if that is what you want it to be. If not, layer it on over time. We were saucing chicken 2 hrs before turn in and then every 1/2 hr. Then a final glaze right at the end.

That's great to go up there, the comp this weekend only went three deep on the "call up".
We would have had a couple more trips if they would have gone 10 deep.

Just tell them your sauce doesn't 'set' no matter how long you cook it on.
It's made to be that way.

Nice going dude. =D> =D>

There's nothing that will make you smile more than getting your name called. It's like being famous for about 45 seconds.

Keep up the good work!

Jack
