NYC BBQ

The GranPappy headed down to STATEN ISLAND, New YAWK for the 2013 NYC BBQ Cookoff in Historic Richmond Town.  The Pappy has been about as busy as one one-legged Hillbilly in an A$$ Kickin' Contest!  So, it was nice to squeeze in a quick visit to the BBQ Circuit.  The Pappy met with some of the Que' Crews from his various smoke travels~~
Sean 'BOOM BOOM' BIG GUNZ, 3 Men and a BabyBack, Chicken CHOKERS, Curtis and his 5Alarm Smoke Team, PP and the Mrs. from BASIC BBQ TEAM, Dr. Pearl's Medicinal (who tore it up!), the one and 'only' Hart Attack.  I think the NEW YAWKers 'took it easy' on the Boston-types this weekend...that WON'T LAST LONG!
'Murderers Row' 

It was nice to hang out WITHOUT all the ANXIETY of competition.  Great people.

The NYC COOKOFF also held a People's Choice Pork contest.  $12- to enter gives you about 24 'tastes' then you 'drop' your chips for the team you think is best.  This is always a 'bit sketchy'.  And lo and behold, the local TEAM FROM STATEN ISLAND WON!! Hmm...
Awards in the OLD COURT ROOM (looks like two strange 'birds' are on trial?)  Wait! Is that CRAZY FRED BERNARDO's dome in the forefront??


Team Operation BBQ Relief (OBR) competed in Peoples Choice with help from many of the aforementioned crews.
If you are unaware of OBR ....click HERE-->>>OBR - 
OBR was in Texas this week helping stabilize the community by providing countless meals after the tragedy.

This event was a 'kick off' for many teams.  Dr. Pearl's Medicinal Smoke had a GREAT showing.  This is due to PRACTICE.  I joked with the Dr. that a LOT OF BIRDS WERE HARMED in the success of this day.

Ask ANY BBQ TEAM....in order to be successful in COMPETITION BBQ you MUST BE WILLING TO SPEND MONEY...and A LOT OF IT.  This 'hobby' is EXPENSIVE.  If you are going to 'worry' about a 100 bucks here or there, you may want to RECONSIDER COMPETITION BBQ.  Like any endeavor time, EFFORT and $$ facilitates success.

Below is a pic. of 5 Alarm BBQ's trailer.  Curtis is a 'friend in smoke' who the Pappy met on the trail.  You think that trailer was CHEAP!??  You should SEE the man's JAMBO!!

5 Alarm BBQ


For a KCBS event, you're lookin' at spendin' on average $500+ per event.  Put it this way, a 'nameless' team charges individual 'members' $125- to $500- for a single EVENT to be on their team!!  Granted, it is at the BIGGEST BBQ EVENT IN THE COUNTRY...Memphis in May!! But, you get the idea.


ANYWAY...Back to NYC, um, did I FORGET to mention PITMASTERS?!!  This SMOKIN' show of Epicurean delight was being filmed at the NYC COOKOFF.  I am under CONTRACT BY DESTINATION AMERICA and am FORBIDDEN TO DISCUSS THE OUTCOME OF STUMP'S...

I'll see all y'all in DA SMOKE~~
