Sounds like a helluva good time. Looking forward to the pictures!Sooooo. Friday set up involved an 18’ trailer and moving my 800# offset bbq pit on there. 4 pop up tents. 8 of the biggest coolers full of donated beer sponsored beer, and a case of ‘real good’ vodka. It was all good, going smoothly..set up food prep...drinking. Then the storms hit. We’re talking sideways rain. Lightning so close you could smell the sulphur. Anyway that lasted from 10 till 2 am. The pop ups leaked a bit and the fields and parking lots were turned in to whitewater rapids and bogs but the pit held a constant 250ish.
Saturday was perfect weather for turn in and the food trailer from the copper top tavern, who I was cooking for, was 20 deep for hours till we sold out of non contest food. In case you were wondering that was 8 butts and 4 briskets....and 4 1# beef ribs @ 20$ a rib. That was my idea the tavern ow er didn’t think they would sell at that price point. 5 min later they were gone and customers were asking for more.
So how did team Copper Top do?
Out of 43 teams.......
3rd place dessert (amazeballs banana pudding)
5th place chefs choice ( shrimp brochettes)
10th place pinto beans
5th place pork spareribs
No final table or place in chicken or brisket ;(
Our sponsors were happy with the results and will more than likely up their end of the game if that is possible. This year we had 5 cases from Austin Beer Works, and another mixed 5 cases from brown beer distribution. As well as a 1/6 barrel keg of 512 ipa and a case of ‘real good’ vodka.
I’m spent....pix coming I promise
