Even though we did not win, Q Haven represented this past weekend at the Harpoon New England Championship BBQ in Windsor, Vermont. We got calls for 9th place chicken, 7th place pork and 1st place beef brisket and were reserve grand champions of the event. We missed winning the contest by 2.2 points.
The 1st place brisket at this event was my single best accomplishment as a BBQ cook.
The only bummer was that Sheila couldn't be there to enjoy the great weekend with us. We decided that at two weeks old, Max was just too young to bring to a contest. They were both sorely missed.
I will write up a full recap of the event at some point this week. But I want to say thanks to everyone who was so great to us this weekend at Harpoon. An unforgettable weekend for sure.
