I don't start smiling till around 10pm, so it may be hard to see me.

Sled,

I have not been in BBQ long but I never pictured you cooking in Massachusetts. Are you considering this?

And, if so, stop thinking and sign on! We need a Croate to balance things out.

Thinking about it but, it's the weekend before The Greenwich Town Party which may play a role in it.

I am sure Steve will be glad to take a check even if you don't end up making it out there. :mrgreen:


Since you and Sled are both 50/50, team up again and come on in. The Perfect Sled. :clap:

Sled is rolling with Bobby Q bbq out of Westport for Greenwich. The Perfect Butt helped Sled last year with TGTP and we went through all of our food 60 racks of Ribs and 70lbs of chicken wings in 35 min. This yr it myself, my wife and daughter. I don't know if they can tolerate me for 2 weekends. BTW, Fatback Joe is still my Chicken Guy for the record.

steve, are we on grass or pavement?

Unfortunately I couldnt make things work. With cape cod not happeNing this year this would of been perfect.

Meat@Slim's

Dylan and all,

Contest is on pavement.

Lowe's will be providing 75 5 gallon buckets, which will not be enough for everyone, but will help with tying your tents securely.

Please prepare accordingly.

I will address this directly with the teams as we get closer via email.

It might. That would be three back-to-back contests (between Smoke in the Valley and Roc City), and our turn around time is 3-4 times longer when we have to switch from the RV to the trailer and back again. On top of that, Paul can't make it due to work obligations.

On the other hand it is close, lots of Brethren there, and it is almost certainly going to be warmer than last year. :becky:

Hi Steve. Any word yet on site sizes? I know on the app it was 20'x20' but you also said to let you know if my team needed more space, as I did on the app. Our trailer is 28' long.

The next two weeks can't go fast enough.

I get itchy for all the comps, but the first one of the season for me seems to take for ever to get here.

There is a cool hotel right down the street. We stayed there last year and loved it.

Team Agave added today.

If any team is interested but you are hesitant because it's a long way to haul your gear. I will provide kitchen and cookers.
