Smoke Me Tender's mascot, a hand carved wooden pig named "Charcoal", was stolen this past weekend at the NKC contest. If you know anything about the whereabouts of their pig, please contact me or Tammye & Gary Bosley with details ASAP.

I am putting up a reward of 25 lbs of Oakridge BBQ rub to anyone who provides information that leads to retrieval of their pig.

I can be reached at mike at oakridgebbq dot com and the Bosley's can be reached at their website below.

Thanks,

I can see why someone would want that beauty, but to steal it!

If found they should be put on a spit with an apple in their mouth. Then put on display at every competition.

This is not the first time someone has stolen a BBQ pig, it speaks poorly of our community and I hope it is set right.

You would hope your gear would be safe from stuff like that at a comp full of other enthusiasts.

That's terrible. I've always felt that the Q'in community was pretty tight knit, and is sucks to hear of something like this would happen at an event...

It's a shame some people have to be that way. I certainly hope that it wasn't someone competing in the contest...but either way, it sucks. I'll keep my eyes open...but surely if it were a competitor they wouldn't be dumb enough to bring it along to another comp....but then again, they were dumb enough to steal it in the first place...

There are many stories here about bad stuff going down at comps. From gear being lifted to general douchebags stealing beer from coolers.

Fact is, you have to be aware. Not happy about that.

I sure hope it was a local dumbarse and not a BBQer. I'll keep an eye out.

It is unbelievable that someone would take something like that.

Unbelievable and shameful.

Too Bad! Hopefully it wasn't a competitor. There where some sketchy locals hanging around down there. Good Luck

That sucks, I feel their pain. I had a 1st place JD banner stolen late last year while I was at the cook's meeting. Also had local jackasses steal beer/cooked meat out of my cooler on a Saturday night. M-f'ers.

Let's hope so. Maybe dressed in women's clothing or some such thing. :heh:

Frankly I'm surprised more theft does not happen at contests. Security is low and opportunity is high.

That sucks. Let them try to take something from me. Most comps my tent is filled with 5-0.

I hope you get it back.

Had to be a local. No way a competitor would do that. I mean think about it: This is too small a world for someone to take something like that. It would be like stealing the Mona Lisa: What would you do with it? It's not like you could display it or anything.

Yep. I'm convinced. Had to be a local. :mad:

This does suck. I have my first pro cookoff coming up in Slidell LA, and I just realized that our cook site is surrounded by bars.

I guess Mr. Springfield and I will be staying up all night.

Do you honestly think it could have been a fellow competitor?
Undoubtedly it was a local drunk.
And for goodness sake, why would you not be putting that kind of thing away and out of site when your not right there?
Out of site, out of mind.
Sorry for your loss though.

@thenewguy: Not my pig. But, your reply seems a bit harsh, and I never said I thought another competitor took it. They've been able to leave that pig out at countless other contests. Am I to assume you're the type that says it's not the criminal's fault because it was left out to be stolen???? Seriously?
