"Although we have been back from our "Vacation with a Purpose" for a week, its been hell catching up with work and I want to send a much overdue shout out of appreciation to Dennis Correa and Elizabeth Joy Correa for their assistance in getting me the awesome Pellet Pro Smokers, www.smokedaddyinc.com, for use at the Smokin Hot BBQ Competition in Puerto Rico last month. Great people with great customer service and enthusiasm to get you what you need. They can pellet hopper any cooking chamber that you may want to turn into a smoker and the PID Controller is spot on."
Special thanks also to Cookinpellets as well for the 100% Hickory pellets that I so love...and rocks my ribs!
It was the same grills that got us the Grand there last year but "Death by Chicken" took us out to 11th place this year in spite of a 2nd in ribs, 6th in pork and 9th in Briskey. We had fun with the ancillaries placing 3rd in steak behind our good friends and "BBQ Vacation Buddies" Mike and Rosemary Colvin from 5-Finger BBQ taking 1st in steak and 4th place overall.
As with last year big thank you to Pedro J. Vivoni and his way better half Brenda for all they do to make us all feel so welcome when we are in Puerto Rico!
And lastly Kudos as well to the Caribbean BBQ Association and the Organizer Michael Compton and his team for putting on a major contest at a new venue and all they did to properly accommodate the teams."
