Just now recovering from our trip down to Salisbury MD. A long drive, about 8 hrs each way. My team-mates Kenny and Jamie came along and we had a blast and thought we cooked some good food... the judges really didn't agree... full results are here. Big Congrats to Uncle Jeds BBQ, a long time friend of ours on the competition trail. I think Jed has been practicing a bit this off-season and it looks like the hard work has paid off.
Well at least the new team banner looked good...
We cooked some beef tenderloins and crabcakes for the chefs choice category and for our dinner. Matched up very nicely with the Harpoon IPA's!
Chicken turned out pretty but was a bit bland. We have no contests planned for May so expect the chicken experimentation to be the focus in the coming month. My current theory is that a lot of chicken entries are very similar. I'm going to try some new ideas that I hope will stand out in the sea of candied chicken thighs
Ribs were really good....
