Lakeland FL

It got pretty darn cold last night. Around 38 to 40 degrees, not exactly what I was hoping for in florida. Luckily I brought my winter hat and coat and not just some shorts ! The big meats are looking pretty good and the ribs went on the cooker just a little while ago. The sun is up and the temp is slowly climbing hopefully we will have a good day both weather wise and contest wise. Ill try to check in later.

Lakeland Florida

I'm headed to Lakeland Florida this weekend to compete with Hawgeyes Nation in the Lakeland Pigfest. The team will consist of myself, Stephanie Wilson from The Slabs and Mike Tucker from Hawgeyes BBQ. Mike is towing down a Horizon smoker from Iowa and we are borrowing the rest of the equipment. The meat is being supplied by Oklahoma Joes BBQ. I'm looking forward to getting away from the cold and snow for a few days. With any luck (and a little effort) I'll post some updates about the contest here on the blog.

Check out Transformer BBQ

Hey check out Transformer BBQ's website. They were kind enough to let people know what sites they like to visit but strangely they don't seem to know how to insert a link. They do actually update their site once in a while, we'll see how long that lasts!
