What do you folks think? I need a good, memorable name for my new comp here in Oklahoma. I'm looking for something that can also translate in artwork relatively easily, be memorable and attract sponsors.

Any suggestions? Should I hold a naming contest? :confused:

It's a charity benefit for our regional food bank, it will be KCBS sanctioned.

Inaugural BBQ cook-off in Norman, Oklahoma at the USPS training center. Late July 2012. Will seek a KCBS sanction.The Classic, Cook-off, Championship tags are interchangeable.

These are some of the names already suggested:

2012 Sooner Smokin' Summer Classic
2012 Sooner Smoke BBQ Cook-off
2012 Spirit Smoke BBQ Classic
2012 Burnt Ends BBQ Championship
2012 Sooner Stick Burner BBQ Championship
2012 Smokin' Okie BBQ Challenge
2012 Sooner Charity BBQ Championship
2012 Midsummer Madness BBQ Challenge
2012 Spirit in the Smoke BBQ Classic

open to any ideas. :o)

I was concerned about using Smokin' Okie, isn't that somebody's handle from CookShack in Enid, OK?

Norman is home to the National Severe Weather Center right? How bout something tied in with them?
Like Norman's Smokin' Western Classic...Use the Same acronym as the Weather lab then you could have a logo that highlights something promenient in the town...Like a Pig on a Tornado or the like?

I believe it's the National Severe Storms Lab NSSL..

I wonder if Smokin' Up A Storm might be tempting fate....

I see a twister, (coming out of the smoke stack of a smoker) with a wild-eyed cow, chicken and pig with heads sticking out of the sides of the funnel cloud.

July in OK is HOT. I did one July 15 and convinced me I don't need to be in OK in July. I think it was 115 in the shade with 15 mph convection oven winds. Ug

That's one of the reasons I'm looking into misting fans for each team's site and a concept called a Cool Walk or Mist Walk where you walk along a path that has a row of misters to cool you off. There will also be an air-conditioned team/staff room where you can cool off, use an indoor restroom and get free munchies (maybe even cold beer).

USPS training center ? You should call it the Pony Express BBQ Championship. Or the Going Postal BBQ Classic. In your pr material you can use the line Load up your smokers and Go Postal ! Of course the USPS might not like that.

I think that you gotta watch this and try again on the name.

‪Merle Haggard Okie from Muskogee‬‏ - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIImhu8H-0w)

The Okie from Must-Smoke-Meat
"where a bunch of squares can cook some bbq"

or just call it....


"The Haggard" that name alone would get a few of our team members to come out and see if it was somebody they woke up next to at Pigfest.

Oh yeah...does everybody in Oklahoma clap like that?

Finally, look out for the U. That is the University of Miami and those damn Hurricanes.
