First a little background here. I am a single father of two teenaged girls that are both in sports and band/orchestra/choir etc. I also work a full time job, usually 6 days a week. In the last couple of years I have opened a store front that is open nights and weekends offering home brewing and BBQ supplies and equipment - all while continuing to manufacture beef jerky on a nearly daily basis. Within the store, I have also been constructing a commercial style kitchen for manufacturing the jerky and BBQ catering prep.
Sunday, June 24, was the last of the prelims of the Kingsford BBQ Pitmaster series, and now we know who the five finalists will be.
Sunday was the airing of the third of five preliminary cook-offs in season three of the BBQ Pitmasters. The contest was in Thomaston, GA, in early April at a larger competition called Smoke on the Water.
The cooks were, in order of finish:
1) Johnny Trigg, Smokin' Triggers, Alvarado TX
2) Chris Hart, Wicked Good BBQ (formerly iQUE), Boston, MA
3) Charles Wilson, C-Dubs Corruption BBQ Crew, Puyallup, WA
After three seasons of practice, BBQ Pitmasters, a reality cooking competition that is decidedly not Top Chef, has finally found the recipe.
