And the Winner….

…of the First Annual Ted Bundy Invitational Smoke-Off is……

Everyone that went.

It was complete decadence… Three smokers billowing their smoky goodness for over 4 hours…Tons of bacon wrapped shrimp on the grille… Country style pork ribs…The absolute most delicious baked beans you have ever had…A huge Potato casserole…Corn on the cob…Shitloads of beer…Utter decadence I say.

Both All three chickens turned out exceptional. Juicy and with that incredible flavoring that smoking produces. Steve’s was a little juicer – he soaked his bird in brine overnight – but overall they were the best damn chicken you could ever eat.

It was an incredibly beautiful day. Nice breeze coming off the canal and through ManCamp. Everyone sitting around having a few and laughing and generally having a great time. Little kids catching fish at the water’s edge. My nephew running around the yard like a little mad man.

It was just unbelievable. At two-thirty in the morning, we were out back singing along to Oldies from the radio.

Today, I need a week’s rest.

Steve has some pictures up on his site, but they do no justice to the sheer majesty that was the Smoke-off.

  1. We surely did have a great time! Brandon was so tired last night he didn’t have time to blog it, but he will today.

  2. Your chicken was delicious, but next time use Heineken I think the chicken would like it better!
    So, when is the next competition?

  3. I have noticed that Cubans always seem happiest when there is a house/yard full of family and friends. Not coincidentally, at such occurances good food always seems to happen.

  4. Hmmm….yummy!!!

    Mommy and I were judges at Uncle Val’s and Steve’s Beer Butt Chicken Smoke-Off. I tried both chefs’ chickens, some of Steve’s potato stuff, and I had a cookie, but mommy says it’s called bread. That was so very yummy,…
