I heard that KCBS was going to announce the stops for this years Great American BBQ Tour around noon today. Has anyone seen the list or know which contests they are going to be at this year?

Shoot, the state that has more cookoffs than the rest of the country combined, with more than 60 teams showing up for an Elks Lodge payout of $2,500, and that was a small one, got missed entirely. No reason to fill slighted!
