Had a certain Steve Krammer in attendance at the Back-Yard Braggen Rights Spring 2014. Steve had taken pictures at the event and sent them to me on a flash drive. I just recently ran across the flash drive and viewed his pics. WOW.. he is good... Gona ask him to be in charge of pics for our events from here on out.

Backyard Braggen’ Rights….round two! We began the day bright and early, shout out to Sara J (AKA Mustang Sally) who ran into town for hamburger buns and the oh so important donuts for breakfast at 6:00 a.m.! The rest of us followed suit with not a one left sleeping after 7:00! Then began the hustlin’ and bustlin’ as PA speakers were brought upstairs, electrical cords unwound, music downloaded, smokers positioned, signup sheets printed, cameras located, Papa Rock attire on, tables set up, BBQ sauces displayed, signs positioned out front, cars relocated to accommodate others, and then greeting the competitors as each one rolled in! I must say the morning itself pulled through without a hitch, much to everyone’s amazement!

The Grand Champion title this year went to Oink-A-Doink BBQ, Rick & Ivy Taylor and their kids head up this team.  This year the Grand Champion not only receives the Braggen Rights title and their name on the trophy but they took home a Char-Griller Smoker for the Grand Prize.

Demoing at C & R Market in Fayette was an exciting experience!  We appreciated the warm reception we got from the moment we walked in the door!

Sammie in customer service was very welcoming!

We got an early start to demo in Fayette and Novy Foland was very helpful in getting us started in his store!

We set up by the meat section in the Fayette C & R Market.  The guys in the meat department are top notch, they were great about trying our sauces and encouraging other customers to give them a try also!  Throughout the day we talked with many folks that brightened our day!  We even met a few people we knew and hadn’t seen in a while; it was nice to catch up with everyone in the Fayette area!  We enjoyed demoing our sauces and the folks that stop by to try our sauces.

Cassia and Shelby both C & R employees were very helpful and fun to chat with as they tried our sauces.  It was a pleasure to demo in the Fayette C & R Market!  As the day progressed we were able to meet Novy 2 and see how well this father/son team works together in the store!  We look forward to more demos at this store!! Thanks so much for making this possible!  Hope to see you all soon!

Today was our first time showcasing our sauces at the Clarence February Expo in Clarence MO.  We were pleasantly surprised to be invited to this event and the reception we received from the Liebhart's.  They did a great job organizing this event.  

Shout out to the cook at the concession stand he served up some great chili!

Thanks to all who tried our sauces.  We appreciate your support and the opportunity to meet new folks!  We look forward to the next event in Clarence MO.

   The day began with no one knowing what to expect. We were simply thrilled to have two participants pull in early that morning, and being the optimists that we are we were determined to have a good time no matter the number of people who came. Then as time went on and truck after truck pulled in, the excitement grew and hopes began to rise. I, AKA Girls Rock, the daughter of Papa and Mama Rock, was the "lucky" individual nominated to sign all participants in and collect all dues owed (definitely not the peoples' favorite person to see that day). But, lo and behold, the job turned out be a rewarding one because it allowed me to meet all the participants and their families, and be the first to hear the classic team names (shout out to No Sleeves BBQ and The Smokers for thinking of team names on the spot! And the longest team name award goes to the Allreds: The Allred Family Southern Smoke-N-Sauce).

    Later on that day I was pleasantly surprised with a second job...tallying the scores. And though it meant missing out on meat samples and funnel cakes it had its perks...I knew the winners beforehand and was then able to watch them carefully during the awards assembly to see their reactions. I must commend everyone on their poker faces, all winners had a jump of surprise, but then were quick to return to their poker faces as they walked to the stage (Best poker face award to Willie Schumann AKA The Smokin' Daddy and Todd Flashpuller AKA No Sleeves BBQ).

    All in all, the day was a great experience, full of smiles and laughter. And...always a positive...no complaints about the music (which was yet another job of Girls Rock). I'm now ready for round two in the spring!
