Internal contest dialog goes something like this:
Me: Where’s the chicken rub?
I: I don’t know.
Myself: I was refilling the shaker jar the other day, isn’t it in the bag?
Me: Can’t find it!
Myself: Maybe I left it in the pantry!
I: I think it’s time to go to plan B — use the brisket rub!
Me: Use the Dixie Chicken, after all it has BBQr’s Delight’s label on it.
Myself and I: But it’s never done well at a contest!
Me: It’s bound to be better than the brisket rub. Maybe next time, Myself, you’ll do your job right and not forget stuff!
I: Wait a minute! Let’s remember, we’re all in this endeavor together (literally!).
On it goes, every contest is a new adventure! Next one up is Stand By Your Grill BBQ Championship in Fulton, MS August 14 and 15, 2015.
