This week I'll be headed to the $50K winner-take-all Kingsford Invitational (http://www.grilling.com/kingsford-invitational-promises-toughest-competition/) in Belle,
Missouri. There will be a handful of great teams there, along with an esteemed
panel of judges. I plan to do a series of posts on the competition and the events
surrounding it. If you have any burning questions (no pun intended) or things
that you'd like me to photograph, ask about or cover, let me know and I'll see if
I can work it in.

Thanks in advance,
John

Good point, thanks! The group is having dinner with the judges Thursday
night and I'm sure it'll be a topic of discussion.

I know it is a lot to ask, but any info on what teams are doing after slicing their brisket would be the bomb.

You ever been to Belle?? Middle of NOWHERE, with NOTHING except the Kingsford plant. Owensville is the closest semi-civilized spot. I live 40 minutes from there.

Nope, I've never been. We're staying in St Louis. We should get there just in
time for the post-election riots. :shocked: :razz:

I live in Washington Missouri. You'll be passing through here. You will be very close to Hermann MO, which has a number of excellent wineries and Swiss Meats is quite good. Depending on where your staying, I'd recommend a leisurely drive out Hwy 94 to Hermann and Hwy 19 to Owensville, then Hwy 28 to Belle. Wineries in Augusta and Dutzow as well.

Enjoy St Louis, just wear a Cardinals hat and you will fit right it! I recommend the wineries as well.

Be different and wear Cubby Blue and chant the Cards Suck. That's what I would do....

Cubs hat and a Blackhawks jersey should do it whilst singing "Sweet Home Chicago"......

Good point. I was going to suggest a Chicago Cardinal jersey, but you guys are lucky they moved...
