Read this week there will be a new June BBQ contest in New Hampshire. Is this the one folks talked about after the Rockin' Ribfest issues last June?

Yep, seems there will be a new one in Swanzey, NH which is near Milford. Don't know if it is the result of any issues from Merrimac last year though.

Yes, there are two sanctioning bodies which sponsor cook-off. Kansas City Barbecue Assoc. (KCBS) and New England Barbecue Society (NEBS) Go to either site and you will find lots of info on many thing BBQ!

Yes Sir, spread the word!! Huge sites(40x40), showers, entertainment, I think there will be a beer garden(not too sure), NEBS grilling on Sat and KCBS on Sun, plus all of the entry money(minus trophy costs) going back as prize money to the teams. This is shaping up to being a very good comp!!!!!

If Smokin' Hoggz is there, it's bound to be entertaining. :becky:

Do they have any rules like "don't drive on the grass", "don't get charcoal on the ground", or "$50 fine for marks on the grass" ?

Any idea when there will be more detailed information on this competition? I went to the website but it appears as though it is still under construction.

Thanks for the info...Looks like a great contest. We will definitely be entering this one. The grilling looks interesting especially the bacon category.

I'm going to support this one.

Anyone that had issues with that other NH contest (who didnt?) really should consider doing the same.

i agree. i think that other one will be dead in the water. 100% payout, large sites, beer garden, showers, entertainment...

BoneDaddy's will be supporting this new event...Last year at the "other" event we took 3 - 3rd places and made $82.50. At least we did not get a $50 fine!

Well, as GC at the "other place" last year, I almost felt obligated to return......that feeling has passed.

Not %100 sure that I can make this one, but I won't be doing the other for sure.

We are definately not going to to do Rock N Ribfest as we were treated with very poor customer service on multiple occasions last year (and we were next to and watched the ordeal of one of the teams that was fined as well). I have no problem posting the name of that horribly run contest as I let them know how I felt when they sent me an email a couple weeks ago. I politely explained how we were treated and they didn't even respond to my email sealing my decision.

I am trying like hell to see this new contest into the budget. It will make a three in a row if we get in....Lexington MA then Roc City Ribfest in NY then NH. All that with a business trip to VA in between NY & NH. I wonder what the price of gasoline will be at that time of year.


Hmmmmmmmm

With all the buzz and with so many quality teams declaring to cook the new NH contest being discussed here, the older NH contest might get some returns just because it is looking like a smaller and possibly less of a tough field(although all New England contests are tough).

Just thinking out loud as I just printed out the application for the new contest.

true, but the new england competitors will be somewhere else. that other contest, now not an auto, would be a "backyard/amateur" event at best, and even that i'm not sure. except for the trophy making.

Ya, maybe. A GC there won't buy you a full tank of gas for your RV though. :becky: (I'm sure some people will do both. I may take Father's Day off this year though.)

Not an auto, but would not discount it still being a qualifier. Doesnt seem out of the question (unfortunately) that they will still be able to pull 25 teams.

Would be 50/50. Not many states get those kind of odds.

Shhhhhh.....Dont talk to him about it...he might change his mind!!!!

(of course I am nothing but joking...BBQ Comps are not the same when the welcoming friendly Mike isnt roaming and just being plain nice to everyone...its really a bit disgusting (:>) as its so hard to live up to his example of BBQ brotherhood)

Don't worry, we still have Smokin' Hoggz, Hart Attack, Q Haven, Good Smoke, and more (along with the occasional visit from Cancer Sucks Chicago & 3Eyez) to kick our butts. :becky:

(Sorry for those I missed on people that can kick my butt, there are so many :icon_smile_tongue:)

I didn't agree with the retirement decision until - I put up 5th chicken, 1st Ribs, 2nd Pork, 1st Brisket. And. Lakeside still beat me. :mmph:

Enjoy your retirement Mike and Kris! :wink:
