Someone gotta come in last, if you're not first your last. Were you first?

Anyone else heading to New London? It's probably going to be an auto qualifier again.

I am considering this event, depending on how my schedule works out. Would love to cook with anyone looking for a "pit bitch" too.

On the fence...but want to get back out there before the season ends...generally, how big of a competition is this? Similar to BBQ Bretheren in Manorville?

It's about half the size, if what you are considering is competitors.

Who are the Reps? I had a good time judging last year.

Last Year it was Great! We were all right on the pier approx 2' above the water. They have showers there for you to use and its gaining momentum.

So I am looking at the google map and it's not clear where the "park" is. It's looking like this park is not a "park" (although there are many parks in the area). Are we out on City Pier?

The wind was fierce last year when judging. As in, flying turn-in boxes (after being partially emptied).

Let's hope it's a bit calmer this year.

Last year it was in October. One of the main reasons for moving the contest earlier is it's less likely to be like that. Other than the high wind, I really liked the venue - it's unique. I have been told that the judges tent will not be in the same location this year.

For teams that are thinking about it - it's an auto qualifier. This contest got me to The Jack, so I am cooking this one for sure.

I saw your schedule on the website. I can't imagine doing that many contests. I am sure it got more insane too.

The late September date still puts it smack into hurricane season. Thats one of those hit or miss times of year. It can be a beautiful fall day or raining sideways, luck of the draw.....

It's going to need more teams to be a qualifier

Black box as in you don't know what is going on inside and opposed to white box. Please excuse my teammate, he speaks geek.

Well this will be my first competition. Registered as Ack-Que. I have been cooking for a while and as this is only about two hours from my house figured why not. Just hoping not to finish last in all catagories :razz:

Please do. Actually, pester him with questions. He has been winning way too much, and you gotta keep him distracted. Q-Haven too. :becky:
