We gave it our best shot. The tri-tip was smokin. The beans were gassin. The chile was on fire. We did not get the brass ring. We did get second place and a check for 200 dollars. We had high hopes and lofty expectations. We left with our heads held high. We lost to a higher authority. It was the local Catholic Church who had the victorious brew. Good times were had by all. There was a great car show The weather was smoking hot. We will return next year to reclaim our crown!
