So. Cal. Q-Fest 2010 Awards Ceremony
Slap Yo’ Daddy – 2nd TOY Overall California 2009
The East Shore RV Park by Puddingstone Lake in San Dimas,CA, was wet and muddy this year for the the 2010 Q-Fest Awards Ceremony to honor the CBBQA Team of the Year (TOY) winners for the 2009 contest year.
The friday evening potluck was done under the RV canopy courtesy of When Pigs Fly team. We brought our Make Your Italian Grandma Cry Tennis-Sized Meatballs with Spicy Marinara Coulis and Spaghetti. It was all gone within minutes. There was lots of good grub including a dyamite Jambalaya, Pork Tenderlion w Mango Chutney, and Tri Tip Chili.
Congrats to Rythm and Q for winning the CBBQA TOY overall for 2009.
We came in second TOY overall but we’re going to be gunning for Vince and Alexa in 2010 as we dropped out of the TOY race in 2009 for 3 months to shoot the TLC BBQ Pitmasters TV show. Despite being out from Aug – Nov, we also managed to win 1st place TOY for Ribs and 2nd place TOY for Pork. At the KCBS national level, we were amazed to be ranked 24th among 4,500+ teams in the nation.
Congrats to Brazen BBQ who won Rookie Team of the Year ROY 2009. Califronia ROY teams have typically done well in their second year (R&Q were ROY 2007; Slap Yo Daddy were ROY 2008) so I expect John and his Brazen team to cause heartburn for the rest of us in 2010.
