Kansas City, MO – October, 2004
Wow. As tired as we were the second night it was amazing we got eveything done right on schedule. Mike and Bryan ran the night shift while the rest of the team spent the night in the hotel. A bitter cold October blast hit the area, and the Canadians struggled to stay warm, but kept the cookers going steady all night long! Refreshed in the morning, Chris, Kenny and John got to work and Mike and Bryan came back after a nap, and we turned in some fantastic barbecue. We didn’t hear until my wife called us on the way home (right as our trailer bearing burned up) that the Dizzy Pig team had come in 18th overall out of a field of over 450 teams. Yeeehaaaaa!! Being stuck in St. Louis was a little easier to handle with the good news. The Royal was a helluva scene, and we had the time of our lives.
