Finally an update on the Evans GA contest. The weather was great! Warm, but a nice cool breeze all weekend. The park is a great location. The music was good. Lots of top competition. We didn't win anything this go round, with our best score in ribs...13th place.
The awards we received at the Jiggy with the Piggy are the first of this kind we have. A glass trophy and a metal (like a sign) trophy.
Kannapolis NC.... Our second contest of the year, and Friday was Brian's birthday. The weather was great! Did get a small downpour during tearing down. This was the Inaugural Jiggy with the Piggy contest and they did a fantastic job for a first year contest. Our results were a bit better than King's Mtn with a 1st place finish in Chicken, and a 2nd place in Pork We missed 1st place Pork by 2/10000 of a point. The ribs killed us. We didn't turn in the sweet candied ribs this time and the judges scored them low. We managed a 12th place overall.
The first place trophy is a really nice(and heavy) glass flame. I'll post pictures of it later.
Next contest is in 2 weeks, in Evans GA.
