What is the old saying? You can take the girl out of the trailer park but you can’t take the trailer park out of the girl? Here it is; “You can take CBT out of BBQ contest but you can’t take the BBQ contest out of CBT.” *editors note – right now I would be getting a “Harumph” from KC Jayhawk but I know that he is looking down on me shaking his finger at me after he stirred his single malt scotch with the same finger* Anyway, I was invited to join in a little fun this past weekend over on the Jersey Shore. We were to compete under Kansas City Barbeque Society Rules which is different from Memphis in May in that we were being judged for our submission of Chicken, Pork Ribs, Pork, and Beef Brisket. Considering that the 4 of us competing had roughly 6 KCBS contests under our belts we were happy with the turn in boxes and turned in all the proteins on time. I had a good time with the boys and even though I froze my ass off at night keeping the Lang smokers going, it was a good time. Next time we head to Staten Island and I am sure that Mr. 3 first names will be all over that!
Thanks to the “former” neighbor who is now “2 hours away” neighbor for the rooms. We may have to come back to see this fine upstanding Eye-Talian DJ. Come on up Chelsea, I am sure you can get a selfie with him.
Here is Pepe’s Lang Smoker. I am glad he brought it because the previously mentioned ribs in this Post would not have fit.
Where you at Paul ? We are using the same thing that you can’t talk about. But at least we had 3 Firemen from NYFD Rescue 1 there just in case.
Asian Fireman’s Wife – “Honey, where is the top to the Tent?” Asian Fireman – “Honey, it got dirty this morning so we sent it out to be dry cleaned. It may come back a different color as it was really dirty too!”
John Murphy the Ribs came out of the smoker. Notice how much they shrunk on the bone.
Seriously, I had a great time and I will be honored to do it again!
