Well, just finished unpacking from the Liberty competition, we didnt do bad, but we sure as hell can do better. Chicken again is my Achilles heel 22nd place out of 35 i believe, Ribs improved drastically to 11th just missing top ten by a narrow margin, Pork finally cracked top 10 this year with a 9th place, and Brisket dropped to 16th, which i find hard to believe because this was the best brisket TC has ever produced in competition. But that is BBQ, a HUGE congrats to Rich at Bonehead BBQ for his two HUGE calls in pork and brisket. This was his first KCBS competition and he took 3rd place pork and 6th in brisket i believe. I think that 4 hour trip back to Chicago was a little easier with some gas money and trophies LOL.

We also were the first team to cook with the new CHERRY Mojobrick which is an amazing product and I predict that it will take off sooner rather than later.

Also at Liberty, I took 3rd in a burger contest, 2nd in sauce, and Lady took 1st in anything butt when she made a White Chocolate Raspberry cheesecake, it was amazing, this makes her a 2 time defending champ in Liberty and she is ready for the next one!

Here are some pictures of our turn in boxes and other pics from the weekend.
