The year in review

Where to begin? 2011 started slow but somehow I ended up cooking the last 14 weekends either as Aporkalypse Now or with friends. Some of the highlights:

  • Winning the Bel-Air competition as part of Jack’s Old South
  • Following up  with a 3rd place finish as the lead cook for Back Porch BBQ at The New Holland Summerfest
  • Winning Smokin on the Bay in Deale MD, again as part of Jack’s Old South
  • Teaming up with sometimes Aporkalypse Now teammate Dale to take the Grand at Shrewsburry, PA
  • Getting 4 calls at Raystown PA to take Reserve Grand Champion
  • Going to the Royal as part of Jack’s Old South
  • Winning the Grand Championship at Harrisburg, PA
  • Going to the Jack Daniels Invitational as part of Jack’s Old South

It’s been an interesting 1st full year as a BBQ team, many lessons have been learned as well as mental plans made for 2012.

Wusthof has the brisket slicer in full production (watch this space to order) and first customer ship is estimated around the 10th of December. Two other knives have been developed and we’ll be bringing up the online store shortly to facilitate acquiring these plus some other items I’ve found useful on the BBQ trail (not to mention Aporkalypse Now wearables !)
