Marshalltown Recap

This post is really really late so I will just post a quick recap of the weekend.

The weather was perfect and with the exception of 2 minutes of drizzle it was dry (first time ever). I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but again there were some of the best teams in the country in attendance.

We were happy with everything except for the ribs (again, it seems like I say that after every competition...I'm starting to really hate ribs). After tasting the ribs I thought about not turning them in at all. From the looks of the results I should have thrown them away.

Chicken 24th
Ribs 60th
Pork 12th
Brisket 9th
Overall 24th (out of 65)

The terrible ribs hurt badly, cost us a top ten for sure and a possible top five. Oh well, perhaps we can put all four together again this weekend. It was great to see Ryan and Terry with Big T'z Q Cru take their second Grand Championship in as many contests. They are a new team just like us, and obviously they have it rolling. It's fun to see team win that actually seems to enjoy it!
