Holy Smokes are Winners!


Busy hands making a congratulatory banner because ....


Redmond's St. Jude's Holy Smokes took first and third prizes for barbecuing ribs and pork butt respectively. They got stiff competition from Blessed be the Meat (Blessed Teresa) in Woodinville and Valley Dukes (Holy Innocents) in Duvall. My favorites besides the meat from our team, were the tandoori chicken and Thai beef brisket. Yum!

That's my husband in blue and his teammate in orange. They both spent the night out, tending to their meat. Thanks to the Knights for a wonderful weekend. They cooked for our parish picnic today as well.

That's my dad in orange, he's amazing with his Weber grill!!! I know he really enjoys these BBQ competitions. I'm glad he found a partner in crime with those BBQ Kettles.

Thank you, Angela.

Nick -- those two trophies are from last year ... and I must say his chicken was delicious. It's always good to have a partner in crime. Believe it or not, but I grew up vegetarian and didn't even care for meat until after my husband started fixing it ... now I'm a total carnivore. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm still giggling over "Blessed Be The Meat"! Yay for parish fun!

Oh, yes! I cracked up when I first saw their sign. Their tandoori chicken was primo!
