August 22 & 23, 2014: Summer Fest, New Holland, PA
This year the team of Phil, Jeff, Meghan, and Brian cooked at the New Holland Summer Fest. There were 70 teams that competed. We finished 38 overall which was a great improvement from last year. While our wives did not participate in the competition, they were anxious for any leftovers. Jeff’s Chocolate Crème Brule was a crowd pleaser with them, but unfortunately earned no awards. Engineered Smoke did get its first call and a ribbon with a 7th place finish for pork ribs. It was also great to team up and cook with our good friends Jon and Jason from Animal Lover Smokers & Grills.

June 8, 2013: BBQ for a Cure, Hatfield, PA
This year the team attended the BBQ for a Cure in Hatfield. It was a nice Saturday after a rainy Friday night, the field was a little soggy and some vehicles had difficulty. There were 20 teams, down a bit from last year but all in all had a good time. Lucas sister Tammy and friend Steve visited. Although we did not finish as well as liked, we did not go away empty handed; Hatfield donated ribs and Phil won the Tastefully Simple Gift Basket raffle. Click here for the action shots!!!!
