December 2004 Rose Bowl Contest

Gene Goycochea and Smart & Final put together this first year contest and did a fantastic job in spite of bad weather. Seven teams competed at the Rose Bowl itself, next to where floats for the Rose Parade were being decorated. We were originally scheduled to set up on a baseball diamond with tents already set up, but the rain made the field muddy so the organizers improvised and we set up along the side of a road next to a park. The competitors' response to the situation was not to whine and complain, but to get on with what we were there for - to cook BBQ and compete.

There were torrential downpours and a hail storm during the night, but nobody let it dampen their spirit or enthusiasm. We had a cook's dinner and the cook's meeting was held up a little because the cassette player wouldn't work because it was wet. Keeping to the spirit of the event, Todd Eves improvised a solution and played the KCBS CD on his laptop computer. We had the meeting in Brent Walton's site, nicknamed "A River Runs Through It" for obvious reasons.

All in all, this was one of the better competitions I've been to, and I really hope they have it again next year. Again, a big thanks to Gene Goycochea and Smart & Final for putting it together, and congratulations to all the teams who showed their love of the 'Q by coming out and competing. Also, big congratulations to Brent Walton and Qn4U on his unprecedented third consecutive California Grand Championship. Brent is the Tiger Woods of California BBQ.
