Four Q Ready for the Beachfront BBQ Competition at Imperial Beach

Well, our Four Q BBQ team met yesterday to finalize our plans for this coming weekend. Yes, we will be one short with BBQ Junkie who usually does chicken, taking off this event to take care of family and so the three of us (Survival Gourmet, Professor Salt and me)are going to pull together to prepare the chicken for this event.

I added just a little food porn. Choosing which prep to use during the competition was tough. We have our plan set with all of us combining our efforts.

Henry, there were 6 different preps used so that we could test the best one to prepare for the competition. 1 marinade, one brine and 4 rubs. The marinade was simply Trader Joes Lemon, Ginger Sesame dressing, the brine was a mixture of brown sugar, kosher salt, Szechuan Magic seasoning rub, apple juice and apple cider vinegar. The rubs included a Szechuan Magic rub, simply salt and pepper, Magic Dust with Chris Lily White Sauce, Big Mista's rub and Italian Dressing and Big Mista #2 rub.

Can't post the exact recipes as they weren't all mine. I'll hold posting the ones I know until after the competition.
