The Pickled Pig
Surfing the net the other day, I discovered a wonderful tool for all you competitive barbequers out there. The fine folks over at the Pickled Pig Forums have put together an interactive map that shows every KCBS sanctioned contest and each team's top ten placements. See where teams are racking up their wins. This application will generate a map depicting the location of contests where the selected team finished in the Top 10 of any KCBS category including: chicken, ribs, pork, brisket, and overall.
Here's the link to my team, WhiteTrash BBQ with our one top ten placement in the one contest we've cooked in so far this year. Over take a look at Cool Smoke's page with all their grand championships highlighted in blue pins! That's where I want to be.
But the folks over at the Pickled Pig, didn't stop with that one tool. Oh no. They also created a "Power Ranking" tool, a "KCBS Contest Results List," "Contest Statistics," interactive "Contest Map," "DIY BBQ Rankings Generator," and finally a "BBQ Power Ranking Widget Generator."
And besides all of that, they've got a pretty good forum that's just starting out.
See you over at the Pickled Pig.
