I looked into it in the past but it was right around another event. I’m told it is a great time.

The Backyard All-Stars will be there for sure. We got 3rd in ribs last year out of the regular field (didn't get picked for Garry's rib challenge) and we're hoping to do a little better this time out.

Watch for Big D's pizza. My teammate Dan Mc (Mutha Chicken) will be cooking with them. Pretty sure they won 2 categories last year.

Folks—I could use some help ASAP… I was on the wait list and just got the call 30 minutes ago. I am traveling on business and think I can make it home in time. Can you guys answer a few questions for me ASAP because my application is at home?

Is this both Ribs and Chicken?
Do they supply a water source?
How big is your space?
Is there an area to park your trailer?
What time can you arrive to set-up?
How much product do you bring?

Thanks for the help. See you Saturday!

Saw lots of familiar names out there yesterday but like always, we didn't get a chance to meet everyone we would've liked to. The weather gave us some worries but it was a pretty good day overall with the Brethren faithful making a fine showing as always. More later with pics after I get some coffee.

And results, if you have them. Wish we could have been there.
