I'm still here
Sorry for the lack of posts. Life is been very strange lately. I will post more over the weekend and will be getting on a regular posting schedule.
We left off with me traveling to the Hudson Valley Rib Fest in New Paltz. Well we got our clock cleaned. We came in 11th overall. Not a bad finish, but the food was, in our opinion, the best we've ever cooked. Oh well. The more experienced teams have said that if your happy, it's the sign of death. Guess they were right!
Congratulations to Rob Richter and Big Island BBQ for their first place finish. I didn't taste any of their food, but they are a great team and deserve to win.
One great experience at New Paltz was getting to spend some more time with Adam Perry Lang of Daisy May's BBQ. We had met at Grill Kings earlier in the summer, and when I got to New Paltz, he came over with some steak for me to try out. It was damn good. I'll talk more about my impressions of Adam in a later post.
On a more personal note, I hope you are all checking out The Hampton Smoker's Blog. He just got some great, well deserved press in the New York Daily News.
