    My latest comp with the Lowland Smokers: Ruhrpott BBQ comp in Germany

    This last weekend my team and I competed in the biggest KCBS Sanctioned comp outside the US, the Ruhrpott BBQ comp in Germany. 58 teams from a lot of countries in Europe and even a few US based teams such as Wicked Que from Georgia, Buttrub.com and The BBQ Guru. We didn't do very well but had a great time nonetheless, we ended 48th overall. Anyway, here's a few pics of the event.

    Seasoning the Brisket (ps, that's me)

      Wow, that sure looked like a HIGH grade brisket. I ain't never touched some fat/muscle striations like that.

      I take it that was NOT you working on the ribs.

      Thanks for the pics, never been to a comp.

      I need a translation off that red van!!

        We're really lucky we have a meat sonsor that supplies us with Wagyu briskets and other great meats (the brisket is in the back on the right)

                Suprisingly good for the time of year. I live in the Netherlands but the comp was only a 1.5 hour drive. We have another comp this weekend. I'll make sure to let you know how we did.

                  If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                  slow n sear
                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  the good one grill
                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  PK 360 grill
                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  kareubequ bbq smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                  masterbuilt gas smoker
                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  NK-22-Ck Grill
                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
