This will be a KCBS contest that is a Saturday/Sunday contest. For those that are cooking the Evergreen Park, IL contest for the Sam's series, this is the same weekend, so the potential for a double header is there, if you so choose. Willowbrook is about 20-25 miles from Evergreen Park.

This contest will be raising money for cancer research. I know that for now, they will have limited space. There is also talk that this contest will team up with the Westmont contest, that is one week before this one, for the highest scoring team at both events.

Hope to see you there!

Also, for those that care. It is also my birthday weekend. I prefer Jack Black label or very cold Gentleman Jack... Then again, I could be talked into vodka lemonades or Mai Tai's... :becky:

Well, I borrowed some CPU time from GoodbuddiesBBQ's super computer and have come up with a 94.12% chance that we will be there.

How limited is the space

Scottie

i want to say Steve said 35, but would look to add more space if it fills up. He wasn't sure on that...

We may do this one also. One of the wife's high school freinds asked us to cater thier 25th anniversary party, and said it'd be sometime in early June, so we have to make sure it doesn't conflict. If we're clear, we'll be there.

Hard to pass up since it's even closer to us than Westmont

Does anybody know if they are still accepting team applications? Were hoping to make this a double headed.

I am not screwing around at westmont. I want the damn win!!! ;)

Honestly, I have no clue where the application for title is with the state. So I probably will not have my plates by then. No plates means no insurance. It doesn't leave the garage with no insurance.

And Ron... I have a special Ez-Up to protect it from the rain... ;)

resurrecting this one, I was wandering if anyone had an idea of how many teams will be doing the B2B points chase?

Hi all;
Figured now was as good a time as any to jump in and say, "hey".
I judged last years event (non-sanctioned) and decided this year would be my first competition :crazy: I'm excited to participate.
I've registered for the event as: GatRat Smoke Works (last name backwards...)

I look forward to meeting you,

God I hope not Bill! Inside of my truck looks like Woodstock! Got home Saturday night and felt like I had trenchfoot! I think the shoes I was wearing might just be toast!

Can't tell ya how "good" it felt to go do this the next morning...

That M1 felt like a farkin cinderblock! Props to the boys that had to carry those things for real!

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Willowbrook. We'll be there around 3-4 hopefully. Have a food drop in Naperville to do first.

Ok... I've undergone a name change... In retrospect, last name backwards or not the association with a "Rat" and food probably is ill advised. I've been re-registered as: "Catahoula 'Que"
See ya there. Cheers,

Well gotta say I had a great time at my first event. Wanted to throw a huge shout out to Bear Cat Smokers! Joe was a huge help (even if I only believed 1/10 of what he was telling me) :) Same to Mark (? I think it was Mark, i consumed a lot of gin...) "Damn you judge #4!" (now he knows who I mean) whose feedback on my blind box certainly upped my "appearance" score.

Lessons learned:
1) Cook all four categories. Having a frantic KCBS official run into your camp screaming 'Your chicken is late - did you forget your chicken!!!' made me realize cooking only 2 just aint normal...
2) Apparently playing Texas Hold 'em with a peaknuckle deck at a KCBS event is ok...
3) Make sure at turn in I'm well before or after Scott's entry...

Again; thanks everyone I enjoyed it and am sure I'll continue,

Ya did good! And I remember the judge #4 comment from Saturday night shot fairy rounds. You're right, Joe IS a good guy!

Very odd contest in some ways. I didn't make the cooks meeting, but was told nobody could hear there, and I know nobody could hear at the awards.

Only pages 1 and two of the 6 we should have gotten, would like to see if KCBS can supply the remaining pages.

Still scratching my head over the comment card I got on pork. I let them get away from me a bit, so yes, it was overdone, and maybe a bit mushy. but ""The pork tasted rancid like it was old and expired, also mushy texture to it" Does that mean everyone from 15th place pork down had pork that tasted worse than rancid?:becky:

Pork scores were 888 966 899 989 878 and 855...wonder which judge he was:mad2:

I think we are one step closer to a new trailer....first the AC distribution transformer goes, then one of the crane cables on the back corner! Thanks Moose BBQ for the loan of the PVC "strut" Saved our weekend!

Overall, I hope the organizers learned they need beefier power, as there were quite a few power issues. Thankfuly we ran on generator power all weekend, so no worries. I thought they did a pretty good job for a second time event, and would go again, they just needed to manage space a little better.

Congrats to Team Dude, The Powers of BBQ, and all those who walked!

Now I have to go fix my trailer!
