A Good Luck Shot...Over the Phone

For the past few years The Dodge County Crew have shared 11:00am Saturday shots with our pals from The Slabs.com. Many a jigger of Gentleman Jack have been consumed by Kyle, Steph, Chris and I along with several other weekly guests. The 11 o'clock shot is nothing new for competition BBQ teams and it's become a staple at many contests across the country.

Last weekend Kyle & Steph made the trip to Little Rock, AR for the Presidential Smoke on the Water contest while we stayed home to compete in North Kansas City. When we can, we usually set up side by side with The Slabs, making our good luck ritual pretty easy. But when you're 450 miles apart, the only way to go is over the phone.

Here is a "shot" of the action from our end...

...and 7 hours away in Little Rock...

By the way, the shot must have helped us out. Pork category calls to the stage came for both of our teams...we had a nice 4th place call in NKC, but Kyle and Steph scored a big win with a 1st place finish (and $2,000)! Nice job, guys!
