Well here I am in beautiful Cape Cod Massachusetts at the contest site. It's currently 53 degrees and clear. I have my site all set up and my meat all trimmed and prepped and ready to go into the smoker. I'll put my briskets and butts on around 10 or 11 pm. Ribs will go on around 6:00 am and chicken into the cooker at 10:00 am. I used Pardise Ridge rub on the Brisket and Butts and I also put a litte Harley's rub on the brisket. For chicken I'm probalby going to use Texas Rib Rangers Rub and ribs I'll use Home BBQ rib rub. For sauces I have KC MasterPiece and Sweet Baby Rays. I'll probaly doctor them up with some honey and some other choice ingredients.
I was going to take some pictures but of course the batteries on my camera are dead. I'll see if I can get some batteries close by and take a few shots. I'm flying solo so I doubt I'll have time to take pics of my Turn In boxes. I believe there are 18 teams competing and many of them are rookies. I think that's great, the more teams we can get the better. I'm going to go mingle now and meet some of the new teams. Wish me luck in the competition.
