The weather was dismal, but the barbeque was anything but. Six invitation-only teams competed in the Texas Sawmill Festival's first-ever Battle of the Brisket, a project of the Greater East Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce.
Bragging rights now belong to the team of FireCraft BBQ led by Chef David Welch. "Our team had a great time competing against some really good barbecue cookers," said Welch. "The cold snap fired us up to come out on top against worthy opponents. Congratulations to all the teams!"
Taking second place was the team from Blue Smoke Cookers led my Jeramy Webb. "It was awesome!" said Jeramy. "Despite the weather, we had a really good time and got to know some great local cookers." Webb's team also won a gentleman's open category side-wager with their mini lamb T-bones. "Imagine a bite-sized T-bone, from lamb, so tender you can pull off the strip and eat in 1-2 bites. The filet side you can also pull off and it just melts in your mouth with juicy flavor. We're glad the judges liked it."
The team of judges was led by Cherrie Ledoux of A Grand Affair Catering. Entries were scored on visual appeal, aroma, taste, and texture. "They were all amazing and deliciously Texas," said Ledoux. "It was a challenge ranking the top three, but deliberations were yummy!"
Taking third place was the team from Texas SmokeOut BBQ let by Jared Vallejo. Jared was not available for comment at the time of this article. #whereisjared
