nope, and if you're not let me know :becky:

Peopls's choice contests are what they are. This one last year had the ribs donated by Dinosaur BBQ and raised money for the Susan G Komen foundation. It realy is one of the highlights of the weekend for the organizers and draws a huge crowd if the weather is nice.

Sled is just still upset that his sauce fountain flopped

We don't do PC. Our team is just the wife and I and we cook on one smoker. But to support the cause we buy tickets.

Had a great time cooking this event last year with Brian, (despite the heavy rain storm Saturday night).
The PC was a blast as most of the brethren teams banded together, cooked our cases of ribs and pooled them with Big Guns to try and make a run at the "local" favorites.
I'm looking forward to this one again and will appreciate the absence of torrential rain this time.

I'm local to Troy and have gone the past couple years as a "spectator". A few buddies and I are competing this year (General Joe's BBQ - our first comp so stop by and say hi. We'll be the woefully unprepared, stressed out team). I'm told that because of complaints that the peoples choice can be "bought", the judging is changing this year from a "ticket in the basket" to more of a rating system.

Well, you could still raise money and have a more level playing field. For example, awards could be based on the percentage of ribs distributed that got votes. As it stands now, it's strictly a volume contest, and having multiple teams distribute all their ribs through a single team pretty much pre-determines the winner.

I totally agree with you, but it can also come down to where you are located in the contest grounds. So many factors.

Where is the best hotel to stay at for this contest. Bringing the wife and kids?

from the e-mail;

"For those of you participating in the People's Choice competition, we will have the ribs on site on Friday evening in a refrigerated truck. You can have them whenever is easiest for you. We will provide each team with 3 small cases of 16 racks per case - a total of 48 racks per team. I am hoping that teams that can accommodate more will help by cooking more - since I'm sure there are some teams that can not accommodate this many ribs."
