The American Royal was a blast. OurÂ MBQI team received two â€œcallsâ€ (top 10 â€“ a/k/a American Royal Ribbons).
9th in Side Dish – Beans
8th in Pork
This is a HUGE deal, folks.Â There were 563 teams and we beat out some of the best and brightest.Â Kudos to Bruce and Richard for kicking some BBQ butt, as usual.Â It was a lot of time and talent invested in making this a success.Â Kansas City is THE place for BBQ as you know, and we were right there in the thick of itâ€¦. AND placed.
Here are a few photos from the weekend.Â The two guys with me in the final picture do NOT represent one of my recent dating escapadesâ€¦.. JÂ But rather our two chefs from Scotland who traveled here just to attend our Inner Sanctum class.Â Aye, it was a good time by all.
Be sure and congratulate Bruce and Richard, ok?
