Scott are you cooking? If so, I didn't realize you were on a team.

I think I've decided to try to buy not only my 2006 GMC Crew Cab next February but also a trailer smoker and get into competition Qing next year... that is if the bonus in January for this year is big enough! Been thinking a lot about this and well, I can't sleep at night the last two nights when I lay there thinking about it. Seems like maybe I should feed the need, huh?

Look forward to hanging with you guys. Rooms were hard to find for one night (Friday only) but found one at

I-70 and Stadium Blvd. Exit 124
Sounds like a hommy place!!!!!!

How far from the fairgrounds is that? Any one know?

Smoken Cracker,
once you are there take I-70 east to HWY 63 North and then go north on 63 about 4 miles, and you should see a sign Boone County Fair Grounds which will be on your right as you are going North.. If you get lost I will give you my Cell # and you can call, we get you cleared to land.

Hey Brethren, I just found this. I'm a little new at getting around in the site.
It's great to hear that some Southern Brethren are coming up to check out our MoFo Q'n.
The 63 Diner and The Natural Born Grillers are talking about possibly tag teaming this one. Ya better have your guns loaded.

kick / KC... please scrub this thread so it flows with whatever the topic is supposed to be.


Wouldn't know where to begin. Obviously the "how to" or "results" angle of most Comp threads isn't the content of this one. It is however about the participation and attendance of a KCBS event. I think it belongs in the Comp forum just as a chili thread, although not Q, belongs in Q talk. I also thought it would be more convient than looking for multilple threads on the same subject in multiple forums as last minute info came up.



"It is however about the participation and attendance of a KCBS event." Agreed.

Its members at a competition. They dont have to be competitors. I went to the Jacks as a visitor not a competitor. The report is here.


EDIT: thread is scrubbed down to 2 pages, hopefully all the BS is gone.

The Topic is... BOONE COUNTY FAIR JULY 22-24. Post away... all members going.. to cook or judge or support our teams!!

I'm bumping this thread and moving it back to the Competition Forum where it belongs.

This contest is in 10 days, last minute info such as spot assignments and meeting times can be posted here.

KC will you be at the contest cooking?
It would be GREAT to meet some of you guys

Agree with that for sure---but I'm gonna take a road trip to Missouri this weekend---darn

LOL! I just thought of something... it will be kinda ironic to have you "Crackers" in Columbia! A couple of years ago, the wife of the President University of Missouri in Columbia (who is African American) called caucasian folks in the Mizzou athletic department "crackers" and it got out to the public. It was part of a big stink in Columbia involving the athletic department, the basketball program and the athletic director's office in particular! I thought the whole thing was humorous as hell!

See ya'all Friday evening!

P.S. Any Columbia Brethren--- what motels are at I-70 and 63 Highway? I cannot recall and I'm looking for a room Friday night.

Thanks!

**off topic fyi sidebar***

Jimmy posted a good Post in Discusssion and Reflection forum regarding the true meaning of the term "cracker" as used in the names of our members and teams.

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=7171

I got a few comments regarding that name when having his banners done..... But they were on a different spin that the one u mention. :) Now I can educate us NY'ers on Floridian History. :)


PS..Jimmys thread will spark discussion on this topic.. for the sake of the integrity of this thread and the Boone county fair, please continue the discussion of 'cracker history' in the Discussion and reflection forum.

thanks guys.

Boone County Fair When the Fair is just the pits
Barbecue pits, that is.

By BILL BOOK of the Tribuneís staff
Published Wednesday, July 13, 2005
The Boone County Fair will host the Booneís Lick Trail BBQ Contest on Saturday, July 23. The contest is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbecue Society, which means some mighty competent barbecue aficionados from all over the Midwest will roll into town the day before to do some serious cooking.



Tribune file photo
Itís safe to guess that most fairgoers enjoy good barbecue, and many of us try to smoke a chunk of brisket or slab of ribs on our own every now and then. The barbecue contest is an ideal place to get a few pointers from the people who do it best.

"The best time for the public to come out is on Friday after 4 p.m.," said contest coordinator Mike McMillen. "Thatís when the cookers have the most free time. The atmosphere is relaxed, and people are feeling talkative."

McMillen said he hopes for 30 teams to enter this yearís competition. Several teams from Boone County are among the early entries.

The KCBS contestís Grand Champion will receive cash, a trophy and an invitation to the American Royal Barbecue Contest in Kansas City, Mo., perhaps the most prestigious barbecue competition anywhere.

Last year, the Grand Champion award went to a team representing Boone Countyís 63 Diner.

The Reserve Grand Champion earns cash and a trophy. Third place also gets cash, and the fourth-place winner will receive a gift certificate.

Contestants placing in the top 10 in each of the four individual categories of the KCBS-santioned event ó chicken, pork shoulder, pork ribs and beef brisket ó will also earn cash prizes.

McMillen said he will accept entries right up until Friday,July 22. The entry fee is $125 per team. Electrical hookups and extra space are also available.

Back Yard BBQ Contest

For people who donít want to bother with cooking all night, there will be a separate "Back Yard BBQ Contest." The entry fee is $25. Competitors may set up on Saturday morning and cook in two categories: chicken and pork ribs. There will be cash awards for the top three in each category.

There will also be another "Kidís ĎQ" cookoff this year, McMillen said. Children in two age categories, 10 and under, and 11-15, may cook ground meats such as sausage or hamburger under the supervision of their parents.

Wanted: The best Qír in Boone County

As a special incentive to get teams from Boone County to participate in the KCBS-sanctioned contest, there will be special awards for the best overall teams from Boone County, McMillen said.

The top three local finishers will each receive a cash award. The highest finisher will receive the title of "Best Qír in Boone County " as well.

You can register online at www.boonecountyfairgrounds.com. Or call McMillen at 443-0743.

Well, the butterflies has settled in.......haven't slept well in a week. I bet I've cooked 20 briskets and ran every scenerio in my head. It's actually like I practice playing the drums, play it out in thought before hand, then it comes natural when it's time to do it.
I'm so focused right now that I hope I don't come off as an a$$ Friday night to the visitors. Maybe once camp Belly Brothers is set up, and the meat is prepped and back in the cooler, I'll relax a little.
Cooking for about 50-60 Friday night for corporate sponsors dinner, but I'm planning on letting the Bellys and JT handle most of that. I'm gonna try my best to stay on my mental game plan. For me, it's all about getting the best results for Saturday. I can't control the judges, but I can control myself.

now.......somebody pour me a 'rita please.......but just one, I've got to cook..... :wink:

I'm getting ready to start loading the Blazer, but it looks like it's gonna take 2 cars or 2 trips, good thing it's close, 4 miles away.

I get off around 4 or 4:30 tomorrow and I'm gonna change clothes and probably head straight to Columbia from KC.

You just never know who you'll find in your camp when you wake up from a 2.5 hour evening nap........Yep.....Jeff and Scott....great to get to spent some early morning time with ya....it made the evening go quicker, for sure!

Slat, always good to see you.....thanks for being there for us, especially at camp break down time.You, Scott and the ladies were lifesavers!

Jimmy and Doug.....you FBA boys are now honorary MoFos, yep you've been adopted. Anytime..you know you guys are welcome!

JT....thanks for cooking Friday night for the sponsor's dinner...as hot as it was, there wouldn't have been anyway I would have had the energy for Saturday if you hadn't pulled the grill duty Friday night.

Jay and Team Q....you guys are nuts, but I'm proud to call you my friends! The new rig is beautiful and is going to be a great cooking machine for ya!

OK, results........
SweetT and my's oldest grandaughter, Maiah, took 1st in her very first kids Q. Grandma was really proud...all I did was fight back the tears. You go girl!

Belly Brothers finished 12th overall.
25th in chicken
18th in ribs
1st in pork
20th in brisket

The briskets cooked 15.5 hours and just never really got to that state you want for turn in. The probe never slid in and out with ease. With the high temperatures outside, the waterpan boiled dry, TWICE! That has never happened before.

Former American Royal grand champs 4 Men and a Pig took grand champion of the 41 teams that participated. KC did the walk about, and took mental notes has to who was there and what they were cooking on, so I'm sure he'll fill in the details.

OK, I'm going to the shower, which I need worse than sleep, and then to bed.....pictures to follow tomorrow!

JT....thanks for cooking Friday night for the sponsor's dinner...as hot as it was, You and BellyBro pulled out some great Q.

Jay and Team Q....you guys are nuts, but I'm proud to call you my Brothers In Smoke! The new rig is AWSOME and is going to be a great cooking machine for you, Oh, can we barrow it sometime. Just to pull behind Kicks new ride, it matches real good!

Good pics, Scott! That last one could have been borderline incriminating! LOL! Nice job, though, Jay!

Made it home today about 3:00 today.
Missouri is one hot arse place to be in July...WOW

Only the cold beer from Jay kept so nice on ice & Darryl and Johnís Margaretta machine saved my life...I want to thank Jay & all the guys from team Q and Belly Brothers for all of the super hospitality. You guys are the best!

It is obvious to me that both teams Q & Bellys have a tremendous about of passion in smoke and know how to Q in style. Brothers take it from the Smokiní Cracker these guys have figured out how to enjoy the whole package of Qin.

From Doug Barnes and my-self (Smokiní Cracker BBQ)
I do know that we have made some great friends in Boone County.

Thank you

Kick, I was looking back at last years turn-ins at the fair, we have came a long ways on presentation. If you get a chance go and look back, it is unreal. Look at the turn-ins side by side
