Rock Springs BBQ Boo Bash- Arizona Oct 28-29

This past weekend I competed as Four Q (aka Lady of Q) at the Arizona Rock Springs BBQ Boo Bash. A 7 hour drive from Los Angeles while caravaning with my former teammate and now fellow competitor Bigmista BBQ.

There were 48 teams from Arizona, California and Nevada.  The event was a blast (except for some minor things like the heat and gravel-dirt turf).  We took Ziggy who loved all the attention from all but he didn't take to the heat very well.

Many teams decorated their booths for Halloween and wow what creative designs there were.  In addition to the BBQ competition under BCS rules, there was an AZ versus CA battle.  The top five overall scores from each states teams determining the overall winner. 

Well, I was pretty happy with my scores.  I placed 6th in ribs and 2nd in pork out of 48 teams.  Overall I was 14th.  My chicken and brisket scores we won't talk about.  I knew my brisket wasn't very good, but thought my chicken was superb.  The judges disagreed.
