    Met BP at Clayton BBQ Comp - What a Brisket!

    The town I live in has had a rib cook off for many years. Recently they have added KBCS competition. Started as ribs only, but now a full KCBS Comp for at least the last two years. BPS entered this year so I hoped to meet the man who introduced me to MAK and BBQ. I was not disappointed. Although I stopped by several times Friday night, I did not get a chance to meet Sterling. But I saw him on Saturday and he said I could stop by after the comp. He was sharing his knowledge with a small group, and then he brought out the brisket he did not turn in. All I can say is WOW!!!! His reject brisket was by far the best I ever tasted and made it very clear to me my brisket sucks! By the way, he got a perfect 180 on his turn in brisket, so I guess his reject brisket would have scored extremely well. He got 2 1st's and 2 2nd's and Grand Champion with a 708! Nobody even close. I had a great weekend and tasted brisket that I will forever aspire to! Here are a couple of pics of BP's rig. 2 old hickory's, one MAK 2 Star, and a UDS. Great weekend for me!

    Very cool, and that is quite the Comp rig!

    I've talked with BP on the phone and through PM's. One day I'll get to meet him in person.

    That's awesome! It would be nice to know what rubs he used for that brisket & what he cooked on what cookers??!!

    BP is a great cook. Be it competition BBQ or just dinner. Actually his dinner cooks are out of control.

    I asked about the MAK and he said chicken which is what I expected. He said the drum was for catch up, so I assume the other three meats are cooked on the Old Hickory’s. Even if I had an Old Hickory, I would not be able to cook a brisket like I tasted that day!!!

    I believe it. I think the MAKs are phenomenal chicken cookers.
