Guess who won first place in beef brisket at the most prestigious barbecue competition in the world? That’s right, my brothers’ team, Brew-B-Q! A huge congratulations to my brother Pat, brother-in-law Danny, and brother Chris (who apparently traveled to Tennessee to be their third team member for the competition).

 Chris, Pat, & Danny

I think it’s pretty amazing that some people compete in these things professionally, doing 40+ competitions a year, while my brothers won just have this as a cool hobby where they compete three or four times a year. As someone who’s eaten this brisket, I can tell you it’s deserving of the title Best Brisket in the World.

Om nom nom.
