Uncle Bubba, Pigs, his wife, and I are now KCBS certified judges. Got to meet a lot of great people at the contest including, Pigs and his lovely wife and Bill, aka Joker. The atmosphere was terrific. We were on the site of a huge pumpkin farm. They had these cool pumpkin cannons that fired off large pumkins. The guns had a range of over 1/2 a mile. There were carnival rides for the kids plenty of food, good bands, hay rides. This was the first year the contest was KCBS sanctioned and was also designated as a New York state championship which meant that the winner got an invite to the American Royal Invitational and Jack Daniels. Our neighbors were Dizzy Pigs - Canada, great folks we really enjoyed their company. They guy behind us was a former Ohioan cooking on a Klose mobile and his team (Giggling Pigs) took the title of Reserve Champion.

My Jedmaster is still not finished so we had to go with Plan B which was cooking on 2 WSM's. I have to admire anyone that win's with a WSM. They are great cookers but we had capacity issues and they cook a lot different from the big rigs. We had mixed results. At Michigan, our brisket never got finished despite 18 hours of cooking. At Oinktoberfest I put it on early enough for a 20 hour cook and it was finished a 3 am. By the time we turned it in, it was mush but we were still able to beat seven teams with mush. I couldn't believe it. We also finished low on chicken. I can't figure chicken out. How do you distinguish your product? It all tastes like chicken. We did finish 8th in Sauce, 9th in Ribs, and 11th in Pork so we had a respectable showing and we are all looking forward to the Ohio State Championship on October 14-15.

Team Oompappy had a great time friday, saturday and sat night at the oinktoberfest cookoff. Weather was perfect and the organizers did a fantastic job putting this event together. Got to meet The Joker and Pigs, nice folks, who are not nearly as scary in person as they are on the forum. :^o
We were real happy with what we turned in, got good scores for appearance but I think the judges in this area expect bbq meat to be covered in sauce and thats something we didn't do.
Our rankings were 10th in ribs, 17th in brisket, 23 in pork, 23 chicken.
The brisket and pulled butt was absolutely delicious, but again, we turned it in unsauced and that's not what they wanted here. I did take 3rd place in the side dish (hushpuppies) and got $50 and a nice ribbon (last pic)
Here are some pics of the event, I'll post some of the food later.

Well, we didn’t win anything today but neither did the team that beat out Pigs last year by 1/10th point.

5 categories, each weighing 20%, were judged today ~ Chicken Wings, Sausage, Pork Ribs, Side Dish, and BBQ Sauce. During the ceremonies, one team was called for a ribbon in the Sausage category… They approached and said they had not submitted for that category. Pigs and I along with his wife looked at each other saying WTF? A short time later, another team was called for a trophy (2nd place) for Side Dish ~ They approached and said they hadn’t submitted that category. WELL,…at that point, we knew there had been a major FU in the judging! The man in charge insured everyone that these 2 incidents would have no affect on the final outcome ~ NOW, we knew they had totally screwed this event up! (Today’s anyway). I don’t know what happened, Pigs doesn’t either, but a royal FU occurred today and since they used the same system (KCBS Blind Judging system) as yesterday, I question yesterdays KCBS State Championship results as well, (but who am I ? ?).

Well, that’s off my chest!

I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed both days at Oinktoberfest this weekend! (Well, until the end anyway…) I met a lot of fine people and learned one hell-of-a-lot ! I very much appreciate Chris and Val allowing me to tag along and get in the way today! All of the teams at both events were extremely pleasant and forth coming (well, to a degree…).

I took 96 pics yesterday and 105 today, so I need to weed through them and format a web page of some sort for everyone. It should be up some time tomorrow afternoon…

Interesting...perhaps someone from KCBS should get involved in looking into this. This is the easiest way to to cast a black cloud over this contest which actually was really nice. Too bad. Hope it gets resolved. Keep us informed.

I'm pretty sure they will ~ That's not to say that the KCBS event was tainted, my comments were just that ~ My comments...

There was some talk amongst some of the local contestants about the fact that the same person has won this contest every year for four straight years and that he had previously cooked on gas the last three years when the contest was not KCBS sanctioned. I'm not suggesting anything was wrong or inapropriate. This is a very small tight nit BBQ community and this guy is obviously the home town favorite. It may be as simple as this guy knows what the community likes and caters to that taste. But having tasted that BBQ at the Judges class on Thursday night I can't believe that that was championship BBQ. In fact it was some of the worst looking and tasting BBQ I've ever had in my life. A couple of entries I almost spit out (one had a very strong whiskey taste). This year the guy had to cook with charcoal and /or wood like everyone else and won again. It just makes you wonder if the judges recognize the taste of his BBQ and judge it high when it comes across his table. Again no sour grapes here. I just find it remarkable that someone can win the same contest every year for four straight years and never compete in a contest outside the area. Next year he'll have the opportunity to compete at the American Royal Invitational and Jack Daniels. I wonder if he'll accept the invitation.
