Kansas City, MO – October, 2004Ahhh!! This parking lot is hard!!! Okay, no complaining…this is the American Royal! We worked so hard to get here, and here we are with our tents in a sea of motorhomes competing against teams who have cooked in well over 100 contests. It is a brutal weekend, as there are two full cookoffs back to back. While we are preparing our entries for the first day of judging, we are also preparing our meat to cook for the next day…the “Open”.
Overall we achieved our goals and turned in some of what we thought was top notch barbecue. Never cooking in the KC area before, we had very little idea what the judges were looking for, and we definitely had some tough competition. But we got hammered pretty good on just about everything. Chin up! Still have the Open to cook!
