Gasconade County Fair BBQ Contest

August 2, 2013

As mentioned in a previous post, last weekend I participated in the Gasconade County Fair BBQ Contest sponsored by Kingsford Charcoal.

This was not a KCBS sanctioned event, so it was very unlike any of the other competitions I used to compete in before entering seminary. The rules and regulations were much looser or relaxed. This made for an easy going, enjoyable day, but definitely left me a little confused at times as well.

The day of the competition they only announced the top 3 finishers. There were exactly 80 contestants.

Yesterday the final results arrived, I ended up in 9th place! I’m pretty pleased with that considering I had to throw it all together at the last minute. Most importantly, it was a fun time and I got to hang out with some of the parishioners and other good folks of Gasconade County.

    I probably should mention that you’re becoming famous around NZ secondary schools as “Drew’s roommate who was on the BBQ team and left for the seminary”, because i use you not only as an example of what extracurriculars there are at schools, but also as an example of an excellent roommate who kept his friend fed with top-notch meats.

    Miss your smoking!
