The Major Invitational Contests
A Qualifier is an event that qualifies you for an invitational.  The two invitationals are what everyone on the Kansas City BBQ circuit  are trying to get invited to. We have been blessed to win qualifiers for '02, '03 and '04 in our first 18 months of competing.  Everybody who wins a qualifier is invited to the American Royal Invitational in Kansas City.  This is the day before the American Royal Open which is the biggest BBQ contest in the world.  One qualifier winner per state is drawn to go the Jack Daniel's World Championship in Lynchburg Tennessee.  We were drawn in '02 and '03 and our "bung is in the barrel" as they say in Lynchburg for '04.

2003 15th Annual Jack Daniel's World Championship,
Lynchburg, Tennessee


Click for larger image

Well just being invited is an honor.  This is the hardest to get invitation in the BBQ world.  The big news for us was our 10 year old daughter, who decided she wanted to enter the dessert category.  While an avid chef at home she had never entered a cooking contest of any kind ever in her life.  Her idea of a good contest is to watch movies or find a new friend.  After a brainstorming session with Paul and the Raccoon Flats BBQ team from Iowa a plan was hatched. 

Amelia did everything.  First she visited the Lynchburg Hardware store for presentation supplies.  Then the Lynchburg Drugstore store for ice cream.  Using a jar of home made Strawberry jam from Joyce Deeds a relative in Nebraska she prepared her Strawberry Sundaes.  Amelia did it all herself, we did not have time to help we were trying to win. 
 

While we had a middle of the pack finish, Amelia going against 60 of the best teams in the world finished in 14th place our teams highest finish that day.  This was our proudest moment in 2003.

"Largest Barbecue Contest in the World"

Friday (Invitational) was disappointing with a middle of the pack 43rd out of 85 finish.  Saturday (Open) was very satisfying, we improved on our 2002 10th Place Ribs and 10th place Sauce finish to 4th place Chicken and 3rd place in sauce.  Our 2002 81st out of 380 overall finish improving to a 16th out of 400.  After 18th months on the competition circuit the results are heading in the right direction.
 

12th Annual BBQ Championship of Nebraska '03
River City Roundup Days, Omaha, NE

  • 2nd ever KCBS event other than the Jack and the Royal

  • Prize for team traveling the furthest (1730 miles)

  • First ever "Best of Pork" Award (Combined Rib & Shoulder scores)

  • Qualified us for the 2004 American Royal Invitational and the 2004 Jack Daniel's World Championship drawing

We left Seattle area on Wednesday morning and drove straight through to Nebraska arriving on Thursday evening in Phyllis' home town of Shelton.  No sooner had we said Hi than we started cooking Brisket and  ribs for her cousins wedding rehearsal dinner on Friday.  After delivering the food we arrived in Omaha just in time for the cooks meeting.  We cooked against 70 other teams and decided to only cook the 4 meats that counted towards Grand Champion.  We had no idea how well we had done. It was a great field and 100% of the judges were Kansas City Barbeque Society, Certified Barbeque Judges (KCBS CBJ).  Most of our finishes were ties for a higher place, as ties are not allowed our placing shuffled down based on a computer coin toss.  Another story is in the Greater Omaha Barbeque Society Drippings (11MB pdf. Adobe Acrobat required to read it)


 

Montana State BBQ Championship 2003
Stevensville, MT


Click for larger image

We returned to what in our opinion is the best little BBQ contest in the west. The Norman Rockwell town of Stevensville is the original settlement in Montana.  We repeated our 1st in Ribs, 3rd in Chicken and Pork results of 2002 and turned our no show in Brisket of 2002 into 1st Place Brisket for 2003.  This was a qualifier which means we will be going to the American Royal Invitational in Kansas City the "World Series" of BBQ and qualify for the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational BBQ drawing.

2003 "Big Chill" Sun & Snow BBQ
Harrah’s & Harvey’s Lake Tahoe, NV

Big Chill was no joke with below freezing temps and at times near white out blizzard conditions.  Jeff Jones and the California BBQ Association did a great job.  This was our first KCBS contest outside of the Jack or the Royal.

This was a huge media blitz on Radio, Newspapers and Magazines.  Phyllis also lost her bet with Konrad saying they could only go to Lake Tahoe if they won Pike's Place Market.
