Episode 13 of The Common Chef takes us to the Spirit of the Suwannee music park for the Smokin’ on the Suwannee BBQ competition. This competition is one of the largest in the southeastern part of our great nation. In true Common Chef style we called out the top ranked pitmaster in the state of Florida for a private on the side smoke off. Our Boston butt cooked in our 20+ year old smoker against the butt of Mr. Terry McKay of Git-r-Smoked BBQ team in his professional grade insulated smoker. I believe his commentary on our butt was “Not bad for a first timer!” The competition was fierce and tasty. We also smoked a leg of lamb and a truly unique meatloaf. The Florida Fresh Meat Company supplied us with all the succulent hormone/steroid/antibiotic free meats that we could ask for. Our newest friends at Baxters Original Premium Smoker Wood gave us some wood of champions and we were very impressed with the quality. It was an action packed weekend and lucky for us Tri Am RV Center let us use one of their deluxe 5th wheels to lay our weary heads. What a great experience. We cant wait to try it again…..
