I want to soooo bad, but Hammond and Slidell are gonna tap my resources pretty good. Not to mention I'm about to buy a new Fatboy.

But who knows...I may still talk myself into it.

What's this "dinner" you speak of? We'll be down on Thursday night too, but it'll probably be late and we were planning on going to the hotel and not actually being at the comp til Friday. It's our first time to this one so we're not familiar.

They do a "seafood spectacular" dinner Thursday night. It is quite a spread.

Kick arse! Any idea when that is? Being from Indiana, we don't get fresh seafood often!

It was a huge spread of gulf coast seafood - shrimp, fish, etc. I haven't made the dinner the last couple of years, but it would be well worth going if you make it in time.

Hey for those of you that know this contest.

Is it safe to wait until the last week to sign up? Or does it fill up?

I have not known of it to fill up in the past, but this year there are hardly any contests on the same weekend to compete for teams, so I expect a large turnout. And by the way, Mobile will spoil you for space as all cooking spaces are 30 x 70 with water, sewer and 30 amp service.

Oh wow! I won't know what to do with all that room!

Wow D.C. to Alabama, that is a hell of a drive! Didn't know so many people travel around that far to compete. Best of luck to everyone there and maybe I'll be able to swing a way down there and see all the people competing!

Everybody please check your name on Indianagrillers list. Mine was not listed, and I registered back on January 10th. Thanks for posting the list as I called them to check and they found my application. They even billed my credit card on January 14th. Seems that the lady that sent me my confirmation last month does not work there anymore. Hope this didn't happen to anyone else, but all has been corrected now.
Thanks again for posting the list.

Thanks for posting the list. Lots of teams we haven't cooked with at past contests. We're looking forward to making a lot of new BBQ friends in Mobile in a couple weeks.

We'll be shaking the rust off from the winter and cooking for the first time on our new pit that we're picking up two days before the contest. Should be a fun way to start the 2013 season!
