The four main categories this weekend were:
Chicken, any thing but wings
Pork, anything but ribs
Two ancillary categories were:
Anything Buffalo but wings
Wings, anything but Buffalo
Our weekend was mixed. We came in fifth in the beef with our standard tri-tip recipe:
Pork was a tenderloin marinaded in a teriyaki sesame sauce, grilled to medium. It finished middle of the pack:
We used the chicken as an opportunity to practice a bit for KCBS. We did breasts in Oakridge Secret Weapon Pork and Chicken rub. We loved the flavor. It just might make it in to our KCBS recipe:
The chowder was a chicken, corn, bacon, jalapeno, Cheddar concoction. We liked it. The judges put it in the middle of the pack:
Wings were a smoked wing with Louisiana Licker sauce. Again, middle of the pack:
Anything Buffalo but wings was Steelhead with a Buffalo sauce. Middle of the pack as well:
In this category, I completely forgot about Beef on Weck. One entry was a Beef on Weck pierogie. There were also some Beef on Weck pizzas that rocked. One thing that I did not know was that Loganberry are a "Buffalo Thing". The winner was a Loganberry cheesecake that scored a perfect 180. Can't beat that.
Once I have some time, I'll be posting some of these recipes and trying out my own Beef on Weck pizza.
Thanks for stopping by,
