BBQ Trick or Treat:PUMPKIN MAN

Fall is coming and I can feel the cold air nipping at my noses and the sweet smell of bbq.Yes BBQ! Every Just afrter holloween I travel to Shelby NC. to the Hog Happnin. One of the best barbecue contest in the country. Located southwest of Charlotte. The contest is a fund raiser for a local charity. All the funds raised at the Hog Happnin' go to charity with the majority going to children's charities. They have raised in excess of $150,000 for our charities since our beginning.
My First contest their I competed by myself and entered into 10 categories. My wife thought I was an idiot and She might of been right. The first night is an anything butt. Anything Butt is in anything but the four main Kansas City Barbecue Society (KCBS)categories: Chicken, pork ribs, pork but or shoulder and beef brisket. The anything butt categories were Gumbo/Stew Meat Dessert Fowl Vegetables Seafood. I competed in all 5 . I made a seafood gumbo and placed it in a carved pumkin. Yes! A carved pumpkin. The seafood soup was a bachemel sauce with crab and butter and cream and a little bit of cream of sherry. ( I like sherry she is a good friend lol) I carved out the pumkin and made sure the lid fit tight. The second entree was an oyster on the half shell stuffed with lumped crab.I made a bachemel sauce with the crab but made it thicker. I shelled the oyster and placed the crab meat on the oyster. I placed it on the smoker for 30 minutes at 250 degrees . I used dried grape vines for smoke. It is a marvelous smell. After 30 to 45 minutes a dark mohogany color will form on the crab meat on top of the oyster. I recommend a little Texas Pete to bring out the fullest of flavor.Then it was on to the next entre wich was a smoked turkey. If you haven't tried my smoked turkey breast you haven't lived. Very very simple. I rubbed the boneless turkey breast with olive oil and garlic salt. cook for three hours melt in your mouth.I also did a desert and a stuffed acorn squash for the vegetable category.
Anything butts are a little different than the regular main four categories. The main categories( chicken , ribs , pork and brisket) are judge blind. Blind judging is where the competitor places the meat in a styrofoam box and a judge jdges it with out knowing who's it is. This anything Butts was judge onsite meaning the judges came to our cooking site.
I had the opportunity to explain our entrees to the judges. It was great to connect to the public. The charity that year was adoption of foster children.I was lucky to find some judges who loved seafood.
After cooking five entree it was time to get ready for the real cooking.
In a KCBS contest therer are four main categoriesThen comes the serious competition with the standard KCBS categories of Poultry, Ribs, Pork, and Brisket .
