Gearing up for a comp this weekend

I swear there's more work getting ready for a bbq competition then there is once you get on site. We need to buy Meat, make sure all of our spices and cooking gear like gloves, aluminum pans, foil, paper towel etc.... are stocked up. Deciding what to buy to cook for dinner. Finding Garnish that looks good enough to turn into the judges (this could involve going to 3 different stores). This weekend we not only have a bbq comp but a grilling competition as well which means we have to do twice the shopping. It wouldn't be so bad if we didn't have to work for a living. It's a real balancing act trying to get all this done and not ignoring our work and family lives. But if it wasn't fun we wouldn't do it right ?

We're going for a three peat in the Mass State championship held in Lowell this weekend. If we can win this one then the pressure to qualify for next years Jack Daniels contest is off our backs. unless of course someone hosts a second Massachusetts State championship sometime during the year.

Wish us luck
