I Finally Got My First BBQ Grand Championship

Since 2006 I have been competing in BBQ competitions with the Four Q BBQ team.  We have had some good competitions where we did well and we have had some not so great competitions.  We congratulate ourselves as not coming in DAL (Dead Ass Last) in any competitons over the past 5 years.

Four Q started as four food bloggers who had a love for BBQ who wanted to venture into the competition world.  I remember our first competion at the Autry Museum in Los Angeles in 2006.  We had only met and did one practice a month before that competition but after a good finish in ribs, we were hooked. 

Over the years our team went to three members and then two and over the last year only one with me competing solo during most of 2011.  We were always seeking that elusive GC (Grand Champion- First Place in a single competition overall).  I told my hubby earlier this year that my goal was to achieve a GC by the end of the year.  He was supportive but I could tell then that my wish for a GC was like his dream to catch a 300 plus pound tuna during one of his fishing adventures. 

Well, he has been there for  me supportive and lending a helping hand as my PB while I competed solo.  I did achieve my first Grand Championship this past weekend at the December 11th Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum BBQ Competiton in Vista, CA  flying solo for Four Q Competition BBQ Team.  Heck yes and after a very animated, jump up and down, scream and shout, kiss and hug, yes, yes with a standing ovation from my BBQ family, I realized my dream.  GC, I'm still pinching myself to make sure it wasn't a dream but yes a dream come true.

Next year I probably be competing under a new team name- "Lady of Q".  I'll keep you posted.
