Kansas City, Missouri – October, 2005
“Okay. Chin up!! So you were a dismal 69th in the Invite.” Last year we tanked the invitational, and rebounded in the Open. So we put our hopes on a rebound, and cooked the same stuff we cooked the day before (and all year long). Dizzy Pig and Big Green Eggs!! Well, this time the judges agreed about how consistently good our food has been! To receive three top 100 finishes of nearly 500 teams, and a 20th overall is very cool.
Not only did we have a nice showing, but we got to spend some time over on The Dark Side! This is the party spot, where hundreds of teams both cook and throw huge parties. It is quite a scene. Got to hang out with some really good folks both days at “The Royal”, and we enjoyed this even more than last year. Even though it’s over a thousand miles, we’ll be back if we are lucky enough to be invited again!
