Does anyone know what happened to Sodbusters in the Pork category? Looks like they were rolling towards a top 7 finish. I'm guessing they were DQ'd for some reason.

Congrats to all that walked and made the final 7.

I was wondering that too. Congrats to all who walked.
How well was the contest organized? Cooker friendly?

Event was very organized. Awards at 4pm. All services..power..water...all set up on time. Only difficult thing is no public sampling. Constantly had folks looking to sample food.

They forgot and never turned in. I spoke with the guys. It was their first event, and they just forgot. Thats the truth.

I'm not kidding.

Did they forget to cook it altogether, or just forget to turn it in? You would think the gap in the turn in schedule would be a tip off. How weird, and what a shame for them.

I am glad to hear the event went well. I am a bit nervous about how ours will be handled this weekend. The event director is very experienced, but it sounds like he is in the dark on a lot of the smaller details that he normally has to handle (like power and water etc).

I really enjoyed my first comp in AZ. Everyone treated us well and were really friendly. Now if I could just figure out how they like their chicken and ribs...

I had read the Sam's Club website, and it sounds like we will be handing out samples and giving cooking lessons.... :shocked: I shot our rep an email with a link to their site, as well as copied and pasted the parts that sounded like we were giving out samples and lessons.... he said he forwarded it to the upper channels.... hopefully they get it straightened out before Greensboro....

Don't ask me.
Shrug.

We thought we turned in 4 good categories. The judges told us we turned in 2 bad catergories and 2 mediocre ones.

Tom, I thought that a "no turn in" woiuld be a 0, where as a DQ is a 20?

Whatever the case, those guys can cook.

I understand that, but here is the link to Sam's club.... see what you read as it states.....

here is the statement under the KCBS banner section right above the schedule..... this is reference to what I am saying.....

Thereís something for everybody at the Inaugural Samís Club National BBQ Tour events. Besides samplings, you can get exclusive barbecue tips and demonstrations from professional cooks, including Troy Black. And you get the excitement of seeing top cooks from your area go head to head for the chance to win big. Check out the schedule and get ready to have some fresh-off-the-grill fun.

Troy was in Gilbert with a sweet RV and Jambo pit. He was cooking food Saturday and giving out samples. We were told no samples to the public. Only family and friends.

Mista is to nice to tell the story so I will. He took his ranch kettle and 85 gal. drum. We took my small trailer. Could not figure out where to hook the tie downs on the UDS, so I lift the lid and hook it on the lip, never thinking to secure the lid or just take it off and lay in the trailer. Well you can figure out what happend on a freeway at 70mph. We stop about an hour into the trip for breakfast and Neil ask where is the lid...Pretty low moment for me at that point.

I went and got a piece of plywood at the local ACE and he used it! He gets 7th in both Pork & Brisket, think what he might have done at 100%! Sorry Neil, Mr Nimrod was at his finist this weekend!

If anyone in So Cal knows of a place I can get a lid for an 85 Gal. UDS would you PM me as I need to get this replaced ASAP and I have no clue where to get. I have taken the plywood and cut into circle, routered the edges, will paint and put handle on so he can have someting in the mean time, but need to get him whole real quick!

That's not a Jambo pit. It is a Peoria Cooker.

Congrats to all who walk and to those going to the regional. All good teams. Gonna be a shootout in the West regional! We knew Gilbert was going to be a good one. Some hot teams coming out of the SW these days. :thumb:

Congrats to the first Sam's Regional qualifiers!

We got hammered by the health department and organizer last year in the Sam's event in Midwest City! We were having fun and giving away all our leftovers after each turn-in. Public was lovin' it and we were enjoying seeing them enjoy each meat. Then the folks in charge showed up after pork and told me I was not to give out any more. I didn't like it but I agreed. Then the health guy stood there and watched to make sure I didn't give anything out. Kinda pizzed me off. So the no handing out samples thing this year isn't surprising but it's a little messed up to publicize all this to their customers and not let them try anything.

SnMIs, yeah, I already read it. The samplings come from "Troy and the RV", and although the wording is not super clear, it does not say the teams provide the samples. Whether they were intentinally trying to be vague, I don't know.

I DO know, that aside from the weather and my results, the competition was superbly run. There is a certain charm that comes with smaller contests with teams packed together. I wish the weather had been better: I would have done more socializing.

I don't know how it will be at all contests but I would ask that checks be made out to the head cook. I just ran into a little issue at the bank and wasn't able to cash them since we don't have a business account set up and they would do that without a business license.

While waiting to find a replacement lid for BigMista's 85 gal UDS, thought I would try and Pimp the temporary lid! Came out about as well as to be expected for my artistic abilities! As you can see I have on clue how to use a router!

If anyone knows where I can score an 85gal lid in So Cal please let me know!

First of all, congrats to all who had names called and those that are moving on!

I ran into the same issue at a comp last year. The bank let me open a "D.B.A." (Doing Business As) account without any special license in the teams name. Now that's the only one I use for comps because its easier to track both expences and what little income I get for taxes.

We did the same thing. It has Jim's name AND McFrankenboo BBQ on it so it makes it a lot easier than hassling with the bank over and over. Also, it does make it easier to put all the winnings into one account and then use that same account to pay for everything.

This is what we have been doing for the last three years. In addition to what Erin said above, it is also much easier to track expenses at tax time.
