Stevensville, Maryland – June 2004
A week after the Philadelphia contest was cancelled out from underneath us, we had registered for the “Smokin on the Chesapeake” competition…right in the home state of Chris and Kenny! Chris lost his father earlier this year, and this Father’s Day weekend contest was dedicated to John Capell. And Dad was indeed looking down on us this day. The incredible sunrise lead to a fantastic morning of cooking and presenting our entries. Everything went smoothly, and dang if we didn’t land on some good judging tables as well. Hearing our name called for the Grand Champion was very much like a dream. Very surreal.
