Dusting off the Competition BBQ skils

So Flatlander BBQ is finally competing in our first BBQ competition in 2012 this weekend in Kingston, RI at the South County Balloon Fest.  How did we spend our week prepping…well one of us survived a 3 day FDA audit and the other one traveled a little over 2,000 miles to Boston and then onto Chicago for focus groups.  At the BBQ competition, we will be competing against some very well know and winning teams including Pork Barrel BBQ, Cancer Sucks Chicago, Smokin' Hoggz and Lakeside Smokers.  Smokin' Hoggz and Lakeside Smokers are currently 1 and 2 in the NEBS(New England BBQ Society) team of the year competition. 

We have tried to stay on top of our skills (so to speak) in the off season by BBQing for friends and family multiple times.  We have also decided to use our own homemade BBQ sauce this season and see how we fair with it – wish us luck!

Follow us this weekend on the new Flatlander BBQ twitter account or on my facebook page.
