Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Can you explain what a "not tagged brisket" is?

And why boneless pork ribs are both allowed and not allowed

Tom J said...

Country style pork ribs are not really ribs, so the don't belong in the catagory. They go in the pork catagory with loin, tenderloin, chops, etc. SOmebody told me the meaning of not tagged, but I can't remember and leave it to someone else to explain.

a lot competitions will inspect and place a metal tag in your turn in brisket. They mtch your numbers at turn in to make sure the brisket you turn in is the same one you cooked. It insures the meat was cooked on the premises.

Tom J. explained the boneless counry style "rib" thing perfectly.

And Allan explained the tagged brisket thing perfectly as well. That was a cut and paste from last year. In all honesty it is meaningless for our event and really does not even need to be there. All it means is that we trust our cooks and we will not be tqgging to make sure you actually cook the raw brisket in your ice chest as opposed to sneaking in one you cooked the day before or bought somewhere else already cooked.

This is not a sanctioned event. We are all just looking to have a good time. Someone does need to knock off Todd in the brisket category, though. He needs to stick to hair and make up.

Oh yeah... I did win last year didn't I. Did I mention to anyone that it was my first brisket ever?
Defending champion! Even beat Glen Dowell. Imagine that!
