The Great Lakes BBQ Association is holding the 4th Annual Winter Thaw Out and Practice Cook on April 29 & 30, 2011 at Eagle Park Fairgrounds in Eagle, MI. This event is sponsored by Lockhart's BBQ.

$1,000 in cash prizes.

Shake off the winter blues, tune up the pit, and join us for a fun Practice Cook. Arrive Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. Turn in all 4 meats or compete with meats you can cook on Saturday. In any event, we will have judging on Saturday at the traditional turn in times and cash awards and prizes in all four categories, not to mention “Bragging Rights”!! Judging will conform to KCBS style rules even though it is an unsanctioned event.
One 50/50 Cash Raffle will be held to add to the fun!

A great big thank you to Eagle Park for their fantastic facilities!

The park will open on Friday afternoon and is equipped with restrooms, water (please bring your own water container), and trash receptacles. The park has requested all ash disposal be deposited in the concrete pit enclosure adjacent to the reception hall. Ash cans will not be provided please bring your own. Electricity is limited and is available on a first come/first served basis. The park is lighted.

The application is attached.

For those who are interested in judging, the judges application is also attached.

Bubba will get in the car and drive closer for you Ron! Since you can't make it, I got some Nescafe' instant coffee packets for coffee in the morning!

Think we are up to 12 or more teams so far, going to be a good first cook of the year.
