We will be there to judge this year..

be careful where you set up, last year it rained like hell and alot of teams got stuck. Park close to the gravel road so that you can get out quick, gets crowded on the way out with the venders set up right on the road that you have to take to get out.

About time we get to see you again!!!

Stockcar BBQ has been doing practices all off season... Ok, most of last season too.... How about most of last season and one last weekend.

Also, I just double checked, the dates are April 30th and May 1st (not the 29th & 30th of April). Damn, you just about gave me a heart attack!! Excuse me for a moment...

Ready, CLEAR! ZZZZZAAAAAPPPP

Now I feel better. Where were we...

Liberty has had a BUNCH of rain in the last few days & rain almost everyday this next week. I'm not taking my (new to me) rv down there & burrying it. If I can't line up a small Honda generater to run the roto Fowl Butt won't be there at all. No upgrades have been made to the electric service there. Still got bad vibes runnin thru my brain from last year.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday!

We are planning on getting to Richmond late Friday night (I have to work Friday) and the get over to the site early Saturday.

BTW, what's with the delay in the meat inspection (starting at noon)? I just figure that since we all need to be on site by 9:00 that they would start it earlier.

As for the rain, I wish I had the new truck since the 4x4 is out on the old one. I'll bring the tow chains.

Last year...I had to run over 125 feet of extension cord to a setup that had a lot of cords. When all of the people left for the night I drove over to the pavillion and set up over there where I could have my own power. I was cooking on pellet smokers and couldn't risk it.

The worst part was the rain, wind, thunder & lightning...it was absolutely insane!!! I wanted to get back, but am planning on doing Delaware and have one more kid this year than I did last year.

Wife will provide rain, wind, thunder & lightning if I even ask to go to this one!

I got there Friday night last year and after seeing my spot I asked to move and was told to "take my pick". Well I did and ended up having at least an 80 X 40 spot by myself between the two barns. In rained and thunder stormed all night but the ground their stayed firm.

So my advice is to get their EARLY and like previously said bring lots of cords.

Hey Rich! That move probably saved you during the storms since where we setup wasn't as exposed. I got there friday as well and grabbed the spot up against the north side of the old red barn. That barn turned out to be a great wind break and probably saved our pop-ups from taking a trip to OZ! Recommended spot that stayed dry and wasn't to far from water and electric.

I see your not making the trip south. We aren't able to do Liberty this year - daughters first communion - but Marc and I will be cooking BBQ for 50 Sunday.

And good luck to all the Brethren competing in Liberty this weekend! Velvet Smoke will be cheering you on from Cincinnati!

FYI - The weather is looking good for this weekend and looks to start drying out Friday & Saturday - chance of rain on Sunday but nothing like last year. Also, Brookville Lake is over 11 feet above summer pool and rising an inch an hour which means flooding. With the flooding of the Ohio and Mississippi the Corp does not plan to release water any time soon. That said the comp area is protected by a levee but I am guessing it is below the current lake level so not sure what happens to rainwater that collects in that basin when the lake is up. In any event it is going to be soggy so plan accordingly and perhaps check with Carl to see what the conditions are. Hope this info is helpful!

Hey y'all.....

Thinking about coming out to the comp to hang out and meet some of the Brethren. BUT....won't be able to get there until like 10 on Friday night. (baseball and a soccer game to go to). I could get up on Saturday and head out, but I know how crazy the morning gets before turn in. Don't want to bother you guys while you're hard at work. I know that Friday's usually the "hangout time", but some folks head to bed earlier than others.

What time's turn in start? Bed time early for most of you? Don't want to burn the gas for 2 hours each way and not be able to see folks.

No biggie...just askin. Sounds like a lot of Brethren will be there.

Fowl Butt BBQ (Thanks Jan for letting me park and camp at your site)
Roadmaster BBQ
Smoke Break BBQ
Stock Car BBQ
Eat More Butt BBQ

I also was able to meet Bobby G and Full Metal BBQ, and Shigs 'N' Pit but just couldn't make the necessary time to hang with them much.

All the hospitality was astounding and I really did make a lot of friends.



Fowl Butt won GC, huh? That's awesome!!!
Jan....just before I left, you were telling me you considered leaving before the awards because you were SO sure you weren't going to get a call on anything!!! Just goes to show ya, I guess, that you never can tell what the judges are gonna like!!! Good thing you hung around!!!
