We'll be there doing the KCBS comp. This is our first year, so I have no idea what to expect. I do know that the turn in time are going to screw with my mind :-D

As always, the big coffee pot will be on and ready around 6:30 on Saturday morning and I should have bags of coffee available if anyone wants some to take home. They make a great souvenir :-D

I thought about coming down Thursday as well, but I'm still on the fence about, I don't plan on cooking the wings or doing the fish fry. I have enough on my plate as it is. I didn't want to do any MBN since this is my first year doing KCBS, but its paid for, so I guess I'm gonna give it a shot.

Its really nice to get settled in.
They have a wing and fish contest on thursday night.
darn near whatever time you arrive on friday almost all of the teams are there and its harder to get to your spot.

Thanks. We're going to try to leave here on Thursday morning, so that would put us down there by mid afternoon.

Any idea on the rules for the fish and wings? How much do you turn in or is it more like a people's choice?

York, it is flat, half grass half gravel
Water is good
Power is not so great, they ask nobody with an RV plug in.
I think they could easily bring in a Generator to supply a little extra and take a load off the existing infrastructure. But they don't....

Like Greg said, arrive early or you may have trouble getting into your spot. I've never had a problem but I'm not hauling around a 60 ft trailer.

I've never done the fish but I usually cook the wings
No rules on garnish, they supply the fish and wings if you want to cook it.

Ron, I just fill up the box....about 3-4 lbs of wings in a box....that's about all a styro box will hold.

Turn in times are a little crazy. You flip ribs and pork and Brisket goes in like an hour later. Minor adjustments really but it looks crazy on paper.

Thin Blue BBQ will be back in Murphysboro for the KCBS contest again this year. We will be there Thursday to partake in all of the festivities. :)

Swing by and say hi. Homemade hard cider on board with us as well. This is a great contest. Mike, Amy, Laurie and everyone involved really make this a great time. Getting 2nd place in Ribs last year made it all worth it too. :)

Yeah... I revised my schedule yesterday for the new turn in times. If I don't have it on paper I'm likely to freak out :-D

What do they define as an RV? I have a small toy hauler and I will be plugging it (with a 20A adapter) in so that we have lights inside. Based on the early weather forecast we won't need the AC on. Hopefully they won't care about that. The highest power draw we have is the big coffee pot.

09-18-2011, 10:07 AM
Ron, not sure of their definition of "RV".
However, I have a pop up camper that I have plugged in every year and nobody has ever said a word. But like you said, AC shouldn't be an issue.
I think the concern is that is everybody was plugged in running god knows what it would exceed their power capabilities. They get some pretty big rigs come into town.

They had a bunch of teams in the last two weeks call and want in, the big problem was where in the heck to put them... the city was willing to do what ever needed to help Mike make it a bigger event. :clap2:

There are 58 KCBS and 20 MBN teams entered, of course some teams are in both. Captain Ron you will be in the parking lot behind the Warehouse (which is the building that the catfish and grand buffett are in). I would think that the site is the same as all other KCBS teams are allocated, at least I hope because the team I'm on is back there too.
