Ribberfest 2005 Pictures
Photos from our second competition, August 18 & 19th, 2005.
|We didn't get as
many photos due to the trip there and the heat! Check out any
blog entries here.
was our site... It was supposed to be 20X20, but was more like 20X40,
which was great. We had lots of room, for lots of cookers.
We added 2 Chargrillers to the 2 we had in our first competition, and a
WSM. Tony Hunter supplied the WSM and an extra Chargriller.
|Here's another photo
site. I should have gotten some photos FROM the site; we were
right on the river. At night, they have hot air balloons across
the river that are lit up; gorgeous site, but our pics came out too
blurry to see. :(
Please not the cow and pig lights on the new EZ Up. Much better organization for this one than the first!
looks like just any old lump o' meat, but it's actually a Wagyu brisket
(Kobe beef is Wagyu). We just tried one to see how it would work
out. Comp attendees loved it, but it was too done at 190 degrees;
we thought it tasted like potroast! I've done one since to 182
that turned out GREAT! Trust me on this one.. It was TENDER!
| This is our
box of St. Louis ribs. Great taste, too
done. :( We still had a lot to learn, on presentation!
They were tasty, though!
not easy to tell , but we had both sliced and pulled pork in the
box. We did ok with this entry, especially after learning how to
make it look less dry.
|This was our brisket
I was much happier this time than our first comp, as it didn't dry
out. The thing I didn't like was that we didn't get any smoke
ring; we did the brisket on a WSM, and somehow just didn't get that
nice pink smoke ring.
|This is our chicken turn in box... I
didn't have my camera
out, but my sister snapped a shot with her phone. It's not a
great picture, but we got all 9's in appearance. This is also the
chicken my mom said was the best she'd ever had, but the judges
