Ultimate BBQ Showdown II, Wildomar, CA

We finished 5th amid 55 teams with 6th Ribs, 9th Pork, 12th chicken, and 15th brisket.  We also came in 8th in Beef Ribs which was an additional entry.

Fred Flintstone Beef Ribs were Huge!

There was a St. Patty’s Day Potluck contest on Friday, and I tried my hand at cooking St. Patty’s Day in Thailand with my Thai Green Corn Beef Curry and Green Rice.  The crowd and judges enjoyed it as it was all eaten; however, it was not the winning entry which was not surprising since this was not a traditional Irish dish!

It was great to hang out with my co-worker and former assistant cook Dave Malone of All Sauced Up.   We enjoyed the extra hotdogs made by his son, Ryan (aka Little Danger) who competed in the Kids Q contest
