Haven't seen any comments or threads on this contest and I know they draw a lot of teams. Anyone planning on being there? Big Creek BBQ will be heading north for BIB this year. Looking forward to it!

Hi,

We will be there, its our 2nd ever BBQ competition. (BIB last year was our first). Myself and my co-captain are just old high school buds who just love to cook and use the competition as an excuse to get together. Im also new to this board. Anyhow cant wait to see all the nice folks there again, we had a blast last year. Our goal was to not finish last in any one category last year and we accomplished that!:-D Cant wait and looking forward to trying all of the veterans BBQ (that was our favorite part!!). There are some kick a** chefs out there!!

Practicing again tomorrow...:-D

Mostly because my inlaws have their annual "Grandchildren Birthday bash" and I always cook for it. Instead of going to all 14 of the grandkids Bdays, they just hold one big party for them each summer. So, tomorrow I get to kill two birds with one stone. Serve food for the fam and practice.

No S.A. for once though :-P:-P

Anyone seen a team list for this? I believe there is a non-sanctioned in Emmettsburg also that weekend that might draw some teams.

I think the count is up to 53 teams as of yesterday. So much for getting a lucky call.

S.A.?? Swine Assassins?

I'd be interested in seeing a team list too. Anyone been communicating with Perry?

Munchin Rob told me he's going to be there but he was drunk so maybe he didn't understand what I was asking! LOL!

At the Med City last weekend, Perry said he only had 28 teams. When I talked to him yesterday he said he had picked up 24 more. I would say there will be 60 or more.

I thought he was going to Nevada. I should bring a case of wine over and bring the level of competition down a bit.

What time is everyone gonna get there this weekend??

Hey all - anyone who's going to Albert Lea, I have a case of parsley, and it's just Jeff and I using it. Anyone else want the last third? Free, as it was given to me, and yes it looks good.

We will roll in Friday a.m., so just let me know if ya' want in! Talk to you soon!
