September 8, 2012

KICKING ASH, TAKING NAMES AND CASHING CHECKS!

No updates you say?  Where have we been you ask?  Just sitting back, relaxing--AND TEARING IT UP ON THE COMPETITION CIRCUIT!  August been berry, berry good to us Q'Believers!  Buckle up for the recap!



HUDSON VALLEY RIBFEST 
This is our "home" competition seeing as how it's about 45 min away in New Paltz, NY.  The entire event is first class all the way led by the Man, the Myth, the Legend in the BBQ world and Honorary TYWBBQ Party Team Member---Rolf!  Just like Michelangelo, Prince, Madonna and Myron--only one name is necessary!  We've been entered in it since 2008 and have walked away with at least one call every year!  2012 really was the Year of the Hanging Pig as TYWBBQ blitzkrieged their rivals in the Saturday NEBS cook-off with the Fish being edged out for first in the salmon category by a coin flip!?!
IF YOUR BOX DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THIS DON'T BOTHER!

Here are our notable results for the contest:

NEBS
11th Place--Wings
9th Place--Pizza
8th Place--Dessert
2nd Place--Salmon
5th Place--OVERALL

Wow...TYWBBQ's best showing so far!  Lost out on first place salmon by .0002 of a point!!!  We tore it up in NEBS and improved our KCBS scores as well finishing in the top half of the bracket!


SAM'S CLUB NATIONAL BBQ TOUR
Hoping to cash in on the momentum from New Paltz the week before, TYWBBQ rolled into Pleasantville, NJ for our first crack at a National Event.  Pappy, Coach BEEF and Mendo represented the squad and managed to pull off a 6th place chicken call!  AMAZING!!!  Even with a FUBAR pork showing (29/30) we managed a respectable 17th place.  Had we scored our average in pork...TYWBBQ would have garnered an 8th place overall and a quadruple by-pass operation for Mendo due to his ensuing myocardial infarction!  TYWBBQ is legit and making noise with the big boys!
THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE HAIRY
Here are our notable results for the contest:
KCBS
6th Place--Chicken
17th Place--Overall
Not bad for our first shot at the big time!  Once we put it all together and get 4 solid cooks, y'all are in trouble!  

THE SPOILS OF WAR
After a BBQ filled 2 weeks at the end of August it was necessary for the squad to get a little R and R.  The TrashMan invaded the mother land with his family to watch the first meaningful Pirate game in the last 20 years.  World Famous Primanti Bros Sandwiches might not be BBQ--but they should be!

Coach BEEF took 2 of his brood to college, the Fish work a single shift on two consecutive days and  Mendo kept working on those blocked valves.  The Grand Pappy of Pork decided to salute our achievements in a more traditional Sloatsburg style.  Anything less would be uncivilized!!!!!

LOVE, PEACE AND SMOKE
The TrashMan
