Well this has been a very successful year Barbequing for us, Starting with our first grand champion too attending to the American Royal.

The American Royal was held October 3-4 this year they had 124 teams for the Invitational in order to participate in the invitational you must of been a grand champion of a qualifying event.

We had a very respectfully outing we placed twenty ninth overall, the next day was the open competition it is open to anybody that pays an entry fee. This year the had over 486 teams entered, we placed 51st overall with an 8th place in Ribs.

What a rush to hear your team name called and to get to walk up on stage with all the other winners in that group, very special.
