This was their 4th year, and our 4th year competing, at the Smokin' Brew BBQ competition in Parker, CO over Labor Day weekend. The organizers do an amazing job and it just gets better every year. This year 53 teams showed up to compete for bragging rights and prize money, including four first time competitors. As the defending champions from last year there was no pressure at all as people kept stopping by asking if we were going to do a repeat. But you cook the best you can and the rest is in the hands of the judges. The judges favored us again this year. We finished 10th in chicken, 4th in ribs, 10th in pork and 5th in brisket to take the Grand Champion honors again this year. This was a back to back win with our last contest in Red River, NM.
Congratulations to all those who got a call, especially Stars & Stripes BBQ for taking Reserve and Backdraft BBQ for winning People's Choice for the 4th year in a row.
