Gearing Up For the Second Half of 2014!

We started our 2014 season early and then hit a very long lull in our competition BBQ season primarily due to a couple of our favorite competitions being cancelled this year.  Work and life quickly filled in the available time on our calendar but starting in August we will be back at it!

We’ve competed in three KCBS competitions this year and it seems that the category we struggled with in 2013 (ribs) we are now scoring well in, and the category we routinely scored high in (brisket) we are now struggling with.  Chicken and pork seem to be hit or miss for us on any given day.  We’ve been doing some practicing during our couple months of down time and hope we have found a way to bring everything up to the top.  We shall soon find out how we match up amongst the other cooks as we have three competitions in August against some of the best teams On the East Coast.

Can't have enough Dizzy Pig!

We have some of the best sponsors any team could hope for and we absolutely must thank them for having the confidence in us to represent them.  Thank you Dizzy Pig for providing us with the freshest and most flavorful rubs available.  We’ve been cooking at home for years using the various Dizzy Pig flavors and it’s all we use on our competition meats.  Over the years, our personal collection of Big Green Eggs has led many to believe that we were a BGE distributor or dealer.  Although that is not true, this year we are fortunate enough to have full sponsorship by Big Green Egg and they have been very kind to us.  We hope we can make them proud and represent the brand well!  Finally, we need to thank Smokeware for providing us with custom engraved caps for our family of Green Eggs.  The only downfall to our competition set up is that the Green Eggs are exposed to the elements.  These caps ensure that wind and rain have zero affect on the consistency of our cooks and will be very valuable to us throughout the season.  Thanks to all of you and we look forward to a continued relationship!

Awesome custom engraved caps!

It’s time to get to prepping for this weekend’s Southern Maryland Brew and BBQ in Leonardtown, MD.  We are hoping that when they are calling off the top ten teams overall that PepperMonkeyBBQ is the last team to be called!
