Anybody coming to Lakeland, FL this year for the PigFest? Lakeland PigFest (http://lakelandpigfest.com/) It's January 26-28 this coming year. I'm not a participant this year, maybe next in the BackYard division. Still working things out and thinking about puting together a team. My biggest problem is most of my friends lie to eat it but don't want to spend the time to cook it.

Anyway, I digress.... I signed up for the judging class on the 26th hoping to gain a better insight on what happens at these shindigs. I'm still a virgin to the whole thing other than doing it at home by myself....

If your our there, I'll look ya up, shake your hand and say Howdy...

Yeah, that's kinda the beauty of Florida. You can Que all year long and not have to worry about digging your grill or smoker out of the snow. I'm a rare breed of Homosapien known as the NativiusFLORIDANON:"Native Floridian" and wouldn't change it for the world. I lived in Illinois for a few short months while I was in the military and got to see both sides of Hell. I remeber the December morning I woke up in my room and opened the curtain and saw snow up to my window seal. I knwo right then and there that this Florida boy wasn't in Kansas anymore and wasn't abot to stay. I called my detailer(guy who cuts orders) and told him to get me out of there or I was going in to kiss the C.O. on the lips. One way or the other I was getting out of that base. He told me that the snow wasn't that bad if it was only up to my window, then I pointed out to him I lived on the second floor.
Two weeks later, I had orders back to Camp Lejeune in semi-Sunny N.C.

Hey Tim, I'm hoping they get the class together to. If it comes together, we'll have to link up and have a beer after the class.
