There's a local restaurant throwing a BBQ Comp for charity to support Healing House, it's about 6 miles from me and I really want to see where I end up in a comp. I know my food is better than any bbq joint around but I'm not sure I can cook real bbq brisket. Each pitmaster has to cook 15 lbs of meat to be sold, that alone will be a challenge to turn out 45 lbs of 3 meats at the same time. Turn in is at 11:00 for everything. Crazy right?
The 3 meats are ribs, chicken and brisket.
Here's the problem, People here cook brisket like a pot roast stuffed with onions, garlic, peppers and celery. They brown it a little on the fire then into a covered pan with a broth till tender. I'll be cooking a Texas style brisket. I want all the smoke and make people say DAMN!!
It's cheap enough to play, I should be able to cook all the meats and entry fees for $200-250.
The prizes are crap unless you win Grand Champion and hit at least 1 1st place but this is for charity so I don't mind not getting all my money back for the chance to see where I rank.
Here's the prizes"
