2006 Fiddlin, Brewin, & BBQin Contest

My cookin partner Jeff & I decided to enter our 1st contest. Our expetations were low. It would be ok if we finished last as long as we got some experience. We set out to cook brisket & ribs. We were advised at check in that everyone turns in all 4 meats. So we called some friends and asked them to bring us some chicken and a couple of port butts. Hell, at least we will get some points even if we had never cooked chicken or butts. There were 85 teams entered and we finished 54th. Not bad for a couple of newbys. We had a great time, met some nice peeps, and got some 'sperience. Cant wait till the next one! Here are some pics of out turn in boxes.

John Stone

Tootsies recording artist John Stone & his band were booked as the entertainment for the event. I know John through Steve Smith who owns The World Famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge on Broadway in Nashville. Anyhow, I invited John and the band to join us for some Q. They were hungry! Those boys can eat! Here is a pic od me & John.
