They got the ribs and sausage done too early, and they were dried out by the time they got to the judges, but they did get second place on their chicken thighs.

There's another competition coming up in a couple of weeks, and I think they're going to give it another go.
As long as they had a good time doing something they love.... and second place is pretty good for the thighs!

Two things, Constance ....

First, congratulations to Kim on Second Place Chicken! Very impressive, especially first time out!!

Second, Kim may have done this, but if not .... when meats are done too early, they should be double-wrapped in heavy duty aluminum foil and held in a "hot" cooler, i.e., an empty cooler with no ice. Not only does this not harm most meats (except maybe the crispy skin on chicken), the holding actually enhances them!

Although Kim built this smoker, he'd never cooked in it, and it cooks more efficiently than his smaller one. He said he left the meats in longer than he should have...he took them off when they were ready to eat, instead of allowing for the fact that they would continue to cook after they came out of the smoker.

Wow to he had never cooked on that smoker before! That was very brave. It's all a learning curve and now he's got one under his belt. He can pull that thing here and we'll practice until it comes out perfect! My husband will gladly be judge and jury! LOLOL I don't care how many times you smoke at home there has to be that underlying second-guessing going on at judgment time! I'm so excited for him!!!!!

Kim was very gratified by your response, friends. He's already making plans for the next competition.
