The BBQ Blog chronicles our adventures in search of the perfect all-natural BBQ.
My team - the Better BBQ Bureau - won first place ribs at the KCBS sanctioned Hudson Valley Ribfest. It is still quite thrilling. This is the only the second competition we have ever entered and we got a first place call!
And what is really cool the day before we got another first place call for the NEBS sanctioned grilling contest in Pork Chops. We also placed 6th in fish and 4th overall for Saturday's event. The pork chops were awesome and though I thought of using french-ed pork chops, the credit belongs to team member Jason Parisi and his kick ass mouthwatering recipe that he perfected on his stoop in Brooklyn. Woo Hoo.
The Better BBQ Bureau is Jason Parisi, T. Adam Woods, Josh Ginsburg, and me, the team captain, Bryan Rice (a.k.a. Rev. Smoke in the Burning Man world).
We also had a lot of support from our friends especially Lisa, Rachel, and Abby. It was quite a fun weekend. Michael Fick and the rest of the Rotary Club in New Paltz really did an outstanding job.
Now I am off to Burning Man where I will be smoking 50 Butts, 50 Briskets, 70 racks of ribs, and about 1000 lbs of chicken.
