We'll bring an extra bag of Cub Scout popping corn for you. ;-) Yes, the boys and I will be selling Cub Scout popcorn again at the Royal. Michael was top seller in his pack last year because of some generous folks at the Royal. Goal this year is for both boys to finish #1 & #2 in the pack.

Fark, I have to be at a stupid conference that weekend. To think I could've maybe been the booth #918 mascot and fetched beer and tequila (and maybe some Dr. Pepper) for these hard workers instead. :mad: Why did I schedule a stupid conference THAT weekend? :tsk:

If you need a mascot for next year, pencil me in! I should be scheduling a site visit out that way anyway. I can carry a six-pack in each hand if you need someone to assist with some heavy lifting.

Keep Shane away from the brisket is my first thoughts.

We have some untried things that I hope and pray that will get the attention of the judges.
That is all I can say about that!

Thanks again Phil. :becky:

I think doing something like this for the pork entry would really get their attention.

When Phil called to tell me, I was of course shocked...didn't know how to react so just tried to stay calm and not go bonkers on the phone. I reminded him that I've been doing nothing but backyard/family cooking for several years now and was curious if he had a "ringer". He mentioned Wyatt was doing brisket, and I knew we were set.:thumb:

Gore
08-31-2011, 06:43 PM
^^^ Lucky you have Wyatt, as I'm really concerned about your other teammates. One of them is a noted brisket murderer and the other one apparently wouldn't recognize a pork chop if he tripped over it. :crazy:

Looking forward to getting around and visiting as many of the Brethren as
possible.

Ron L will miss seeing you. You introduced me to the Brethren at the AR last
year. Forever grateful.

Counting the hours til we get there.

Hey, can I come as the Brethren chaplain, or something? I'll help by (1) praying for you; (2) keeping Shane away from the brisket; (3) keep Chris' head wrapped in foil; (4) remind Mike that he's not there to drink all the Templeton Rye; (5) bringing sexy back to the Royal.

Have fun, guys!

So far the team is Me, Possibly Scott, Bull, Txschutte, Bigabyte, Wyatt, and I have a couple others in mind. I will be cooking the invitational, and 'BBQ Brethren National Team" is cooking the open. Wyatt is doing brisket! We have out spot(918)...Now all we need are a few cookers, ezups, tubs, etc... :)

Brother, you have NO IDEA how much I'd love to go and TRY to keep you outta trouble. Actually, I was planning on it. I got a call asking me to help a friend in need that weekend, and I can't do both. I had to go with the one that would be less fun, but a more beneficial way to spend my time, money, and energy.

Please take pictures and know that I am (1) jealous; (2) wishing y'all much success; and (3) praying for you!

Don't forget to make note that Genessee exit off I-670 east is closed because of construction. The detour has you exiting the Central Avenue exit from I-70 east. I was down that way the other day and noticed the detour but didn't see anything in our packets that mentioned it. Safe travels everyone :-D
