A brief post to let you know we survived the trip to Albuquerque NM just fine. I gotta say, it's a long drive, and we did all 600 miles in one day. We had a nasty storm come through on Friday, but it held off Saturday for most of the event. We had just a bit of rain Saturday.
We had a good cook and were blessed to have the judges like our product enough to earn a 4th in brisket and came in 7th overall! That is good enough to make it to the Nationals in October...in the home of Sam's Club and Walmart...Bentonville, AR.

Thanks for everyone's support!
