    Quarantine BBQ Competition

    So, my local Home & Garden store (carries tons of Weber, BGE, Traeger) is going to have a Quarantine BBQ Competition. Here’s the rules

    1. I get 3 pictures ... before, during, after
    2. I have to include myself in at least one picture
    3. I can write a brief summary of the cook .... they don’t define brief

    The 5 best cooks win prizes

    This sounds like a load of fun this weekend, so my daughter (She of FireMan Rodeo fame) and I are going to cook together and try to win. I am thinking Last Meal Ribs, but open to suggestions and ideas.

    Maybe double up and do 2 or 3 different things. We could also do something on here similar.

    P.S. Don't mention you are a member of the AR forum, they may boot you out for unfair advantage

    I would imagine most people will be doing pulled pork, beer can chicken and ribs.

    id go PPBE or a brisket sandwich.

    Do something where you add color, height and textural infrances, and a perceived smell to the pic.

    good luck

      Trying to do it with what I have on hand to avoid a store run. I don’t have any brisket right now. I do have a couple chuck roasts, a pack of Costco back ribs, a 12 lb pork belly, a bunch of steak, and a couple pork butts .... I think your point about perceived smell is great .... was thinking I could plate the ribs with a mess of Texas Beans and Cole Slaw for the after pic to make up for the standard ribs fare

      I’m going to cook em on the WSM cause my wife bought the WSM for me at this store and I figure that might be an edge

    french a bone-in pork loin and circle it up to hold colorful smoked veggies - that's always got deck-side appeal.

      Oh, dang, I have a bone in pork loin in the freezer. Costco variety that’s already Frenched .... that might be what I go for!

    If I set up a virtual Quarantine BBQ Competition for the Pit, I need like 2 folks besides me to judge .... who else is in as a judge? Once I have a couple judges besides me, I’ll post the rules and timelines and such and we can do our award announcements at the Virtual Meat-up on the 7th.

    Maybe Meathead has something he wouldn’t mind giving away as a prize for such a thing?

    Well, wow .... we won the April competition ... the Home & Garden store decided to make it monthly now and have a grand prize thing in August!

    Here’s their message about the whole thing

    Wow! We are pretty hungry over here looking at all of those Quarantine Barbecue Cook Off pictures!

    You guys did so awesome, we have decided to extend our Cook Off to not only have it April, but again this May, June, and July! In August, we'll invite all you champs back to compete for the title of the Big Barbecue Champion!

    You can still participate in our Cook Off but please keep in mind if you've already received a prize the first time around, we can't give you a second prize - we must save these for the other grill masters!

    So what are you waiting for? Let the grilling continue!
    The plated pic of ribs, coleslaw, and beans is our entry
