Well it looks like we are once again going to be attending this great competition. Is any one else going to show up?

As in years past, we are again planning on celebrating one of our members, Angelo’s, birthday on Friday with a couple of double smoked hams!

We’ll supply the meat, bread, condiments, and plates if you all are willing to bring something to serve along side.

I will give it one more year. But the entry fee and prize fund are not fair to the cooks. I realize it is a fundraiser. But paying over $275 for a $4k contest doesnt add up when you have over 50 teams... too bad as this is a local contest and i have had some good results over the years. I am probably one of only a handful of teams that have been to them all, so i am not bitching about anything I haven't said to the organizer.

We'll be doing our best to make it out and say hi to Dive, his crew, and everyone else Friday, and maybe Saturday, along with our usual neighbors and pals Moose's, and all our other freinds. Hoped to be able to do this one this year, but wasn't in the cards. Hope to be back next year cooking!

It is on our radar. Not sure for certain with everything up in the air with baby coming. We did enjoy ourselves in 2009 the last time we were able to go. Hopefully we will get to seeing our IL friends!

We are coming up from Kansas to visit a couple colleges for Luke and cook the contest with some guys I work with at Grainger. Looking forward to meeting some Brethren.

I just checked with the organizer and they are not taking any more teams. They have 49 and that is apparently the most they can have with only 2 KCBS reps. I was going to try and squeeze this one in but no luck.

That makes sense.

Either way, if you are around, everyone is still invited Friday. Figure I'll do up a couple of 25 pounders.

We're in, we figured between Kenosha and St Charles we only knew how to sweat in our first year, now we want to find out how to freeze.

We'll be glad to see all of you.

Remember, we are supplying the ham, bread, and condiments. We do ask that you bring something for the table and your own drinks.

I know this is a stretch, but wondering if anyone has a large BGE they'd let us borrow at libertyville. Have not had a chance to figure out how to mount the egg on the new trailer.

Thanks,

Sorry, last time I transported mine it cracked the liner. Seeing how it’s not under warranty, I figure that it should more than likely stay where it is.

I'm headed in from NorCal for a family gathering in Highland Park over the weekend. I'm really hoping to sneak out for a visit on Friday night or Saturday (if you knew my wife's familiy you'd know why :rolleyes: …if anyone could use some help, let me know… wash parsley for ya? Wash dishes? Wash your car? Change the air in your tires? Carry buckets of smoke for ya? Anything??? J/K)

Good luck, everybody!

You know, now that you mention it, I'm in DESPERATE need of some help with my flavor profiles as they relate to the California judges on Friday evening. Think you could help me out?

Did that sound convincing enough?:mrgreen:

I'm late to the thread. Scottie great point on the cost vs prize $$. I too have gone every year. It's not our favorite but like you said it's close to home. See you friday! I'll bring some Punk brew.
