Chilebrown at home

We did a lot of driving this weekend. We spent two consecutive days for two seperate bbq competitions at the Roaring Camp Railroad in Felton California. This venue is a family fun train themed park which is located in a beautiful Redwood tree grove. We were there to judge bbq. The first day was a pro-competition and the second was the backyard division. Needless to say we ate some fantastic competition bbq. The public also got there fill by some competion bbq vendors.

Saturday welcomed a team visiting from Japan. They were visiting the United States and decided to give competition bbq a try. The picture below shows them cooking 4 different meats on a kettle grill. We all applauded and welcomed them for giving the contest a try.

I hope everyone has a meaniful Memorial Day today.

Thanks- I was wondering how the Tokyo team managed the kettle grill. Also wondering what their team name was to look up where they placed- do you know?

Aaron, I believe they called themselves California Wine & Italian blue and came in last every category except one. They came in second to last in brisket.

Thanks! You are correct- I assumed that's where they placed but the team name threw me.
