    First competition this weekend....

    So we had our first comp, it was the second in the Ontario Series (We had to miss the first)
    Great weather, 29-32 C all weekend. Our team has 2 members this year, last year we had 3.

    Its a typical competion with the usual categories, beef brisket, pork shoulder, ribs and chicken.

    Last year we were the Ontario Series Champions and had the honor of competing at the Jack Daniels World Invitational down in Lunchburg, TN.

    We didn't do overly bad, but when trying new recipes and with one less member, its like starting over.

    We ended 19th overall out of 26.

    4th place ribs
    24th place chicken (we thought it was the best yet, but one out of 6 judges did not)
    12th place brisket
    22nd place shoulder

    all in all it was a great weekend.

    Next up is the Canadian Open in July!

    there it not much for a recipe, pick your favourite beef rub (if you need ideas for that, let me know).. Slather the brisket in mustard, or a brisket slather (mustard + spices etc) and put on a 250 degree smoker. For brisket we used some cherry wood, some apple, some Jamaican run infused woodscuits, some bourbon infused woodscuits.

    Our 12lb brisket took 13 hours, then it was wrapped twice in foil, then a towl and stuck in a cooler for 3 hours. Remove, slice and serve.

    Re: First competition this weekend....

    Congratulations,

    I miss competition BBQ, but not the all-nighters they usually turned in to. Brisket is one of our favorites and I have a bit different twist to the technique. I mustard up, add rub and smoke heavily at 225F for three hours using hickory. I then put it in a high-temp bag, wrap with saran, then foil and finish in the oven at 225F until 210F internal temperature. I did a quick video, including a tip on separating the point from the blade here.

    Thats cool! I always have trouble with the separation. We can't use oven's tho at competitions.

    We smoke on a stick burner for 2-3 hours, then put the briskets in the Traeger for the night so we can get some sleep.
