As mentioned in a previous post, last weekend I participated in the Gasconade County Fair BBQ Contest sponsored by Kingsford Charcoal.
This was not a KCBS sanctioned event, so it was very unlike any of the other competitions I used to compete in before entering seminary. The rules and regulations were much looser or relaxed. This made for an easy going, enjoyable day, but definitely left me a little confused at times as well.
The day of the competition they only announced the top 3 finishers. There were exactly 80 contestants.
Yesterday the final results arrived, I ended up in 9th place! I’m pretty pleased with that considering I had to throw it all together at the last minute. Most importantly, it was a fun time and I got to hang out with some of the parishioners and other good folks of Gasconade County.
