I was really pleased to see Greg and Nancee from Purple Turtle take GC. Besides being a great team and folks, it turns out Greg went to school at St. Mark back in the 60's. What a trip it must have been for him to be wondering the old hallways and schoolyard.
We had four last minute cancelations, but from what I hear, everyone who showed had a great time. A big thanks to Steve and Nancy and the guy with the broken truck for repping. Their performance was flawless and made it a well run event. We kept draining that truck of all it's agave nectar all afternoon.
A big thank you too to all our sponsors, especially Righteous Urban BBQ -- Paul Kirk's RUB Restaurant and Esposito Sausage Company. I'll give you an entire run down later in the week, when I'm not so sleepy and can thank them properly, but let's just say all our sponsors were incredibly generous to us.
And congratulations to South Shore Smokers - Steve. 5th overall at his first event, at which he cooked solo with only some help from his son. Excellent job Steve.
I'l give you guys a more detailed report on the day and organizing the event later. Thanks to everyone who participated or sent good wishes our way which kept the snow and rain away.
