New Holland, PA – August 26-27, 2011
Hard to believe this was our 10th anniversary of competing in New Holland. As our first competition, this one holds a special place in our hearts. Teams are treated well, it’s a great atmosphere, and so many of our friends are there. With around 70 teams, New Holland is always a stiff competition. There have been several multi-year winners, and the main goal for most teams this year was to take out PA Midnite Smokers. Paul Hess and crew have owned this place for the last several years, and people are starting to tire of it! Great folks, but we work too hard to get blown out every year! Dang if PA Midnite Smokers ended up 5th place overall, with 4:20 Q taking grand, Jack McDavid and Jacks Down Home take reserve. Back Porch BBQ 3rd place, just 3 points over 4th place Dizzy Pig, who squeaked out the Hess’s by just over 1 point!
