Wow, what a thrill. This is our second Grand Champion win and it's just as sweet as the first.

It was quite a humbling surprise because our chicken was terribly bitter, ribs were ok, pork was ok, and brisket was mediocre - in our opinion. Fortunately for us, the judges disagreed!

The judges liked our bitter chicken enough to give it 9th place, they loved our pork and brisket awarding us very strong first places finishes in both categories for an impressive Grand Champion score.

In fact, our pork was only one tick away from a perfect score, and brisket was only two ticks. Wow, what a surprise.


On day two, we thought our turn-ins were even better. Our chicken was not bitter this time, we made the same pork and even better brisket. But anyone into competition BBQ knows, that means were screwed!

For day two we came in 10th place overall, but we aint complaining one but! Our Grand Championship from day 1 was awesome and good fuel for our next competition in a few weeks. No doubt, the other guys are going to start taking us real serious from now on, as we've finally reached the point were we could win any competition we show up at.
