Our first EVER competition!

March 30 and 31, 2007, Basting Away competed in their first of many (I hope) BBQ competitions, The Smoking Blues and BBQ Challenge in Hammond, Louisiana.

We entered into the "Backyard Boogie" division and competed against 60 other teams. There was also a "Pro" division in which Bad Byron's Butt Rub won the grand champion. In the "Backyard Boogie" division, you were required to turn in Sauce, Chicken and Ribs. We got 9th place in sauce, 21st place in ribs and a really disappointing 44th place in chicken. I personally thought our chicken was better than the ribs, but you just never know. We did exactly what the event coordinator told us to do....HAVE FUN! Even the hurricane force winds and rain didn't damper our spirits when we heard them call our name for the 9th place finish in sauce. Can't wait till the next one!!
