Traders Village BBQ Contest 2008

for the third time in the last four years I attended the IBCA traders village bbq cookoff.
each time was an incredible learning experience. but this time was more than i could have ever hoped for.
i was lucky enough to meet doug and carole ritter of ritter's bbq. they were kind enough to talk and discuss
with me many of the finer points to the science of low and slow bbq cooking. little did i know when i was talking
to them, they are one of the top bbq teams in the southwest. the good lord keeps leading me in directions i could have
not ever imagined. i will do my very best to make him proud.

today is Oct. 9, 2008
website counter is at 3300 hits.
since we cooked at the little elm park for the
assembly of god church here in little elm on Sept. 6,
our website has had 800 hits. well worth the $50.00
that we were in the hole for the cook. fifty dollars well spent.
the good lord works in mysterious ways. we are moving forward.
slowly but surely. " we're gettin there pops, we're gettin there."
about to cook with post oak just like down in south texas.
we will stick to our plan by cooking just like the older pitmasters from
austin, lockhart, luling, and lexington. this is where i want to take
smokin ronnie's bbq. "Down Home Southern BBQ"
