Late Night Hoggers should be there, considering the check was cashed. Does anyone know if some sort of packet gets mailed / e mailed out to the competitors? I have not really heard anything and it is less than 30 days to the event.

I don't think they have a cook's packet yet (or if they will). If you have any questions you can try calling Jacob, Eze's asst.. That's who I spoke with although he didn't have a lot of information. If you need his number PM me, I'll hook you up.
From what I understand they are trying to get as many people as possible to do the PC contest which starts during turn-ins @ 12:30.

Cali was fun, great people, extremely well organized contest with nice payouts at a fabulous venue and Big Poppa's Friday night dinner. I doesn't get much better!

Smokopolis BBQ will be there. Xantrex powerpack, car battery, and all! No PC for us because it conflicts with turn-in times. Did anyone get a call asking (begging) them to do PC? They tried to say that Pitmasters would be there if they get enough teams doing PC. Why would Pitmasters give a crap about a PC contest? lol.

I'm in and currently have been suckered into Peoples Choice. Yeah, I'll beat the OBR team for sure. LOL.

we would likely cook PCs as long as we did not have hand out the food during our turn in times. If they want us so badly to do PCs, maybe try to get a bunch of volunteers, set them up at a booth, and have them hand out our PCs food.

Cooking it and handing off trays is one thing, helping promote to get people to come to your site and hand out food, while doing KCBS turn ins is another thing.

We tried it last year and it was just not feasible for us. We would like to support the promoter, so if they worked with us, I am sure we can work with them.

03-21-2013, 10:20 AM
I did get the same call about the PC. I'm really not understanding the whole thing, they want us to pay extra to enter it, supply our own meats, serve during turn ins and on,y have a $750 winner take all payout.

bigjonsBBQ
03-21-2013, 10:39 AM
In all the comps I have done, I have never done a peoples choice, so we are doing it. Not a fan that it is during turn ins, but we have 5 people, so I will prob have 2 or 3 just handle that so I can get our turn ins in. See what happens!! Can't wait to get the first comp of the year under my belt already!

anyone get their competitor packet this week?

Last week I got a call saying they were mailing out the info this week. I haven't gotten mine and maybe I'm paranoid but I think the organizers are having a hard time keeping the contestants in the BBQ contest and the chili cook off straight. When they called me the conversation started with "hi this is (so and so) from the chili cook off ...

What I did find out is there isn't going to be any sponsor donated pork butts for the teams participating in the PC.

Two weeks away and we finally had a 60 degree day today.

Thanks Greg, I've been checking the mailbox all week after the phone call last week. Probably my fault not to think what the term "being mailed" means in the modern world. AOL dropped the email into my spam folder so I never would have seen it without your post.

Did anyone cooked this contest last year? Is there electric and water provided other than the contruction lights and slop sink?

Sounds like the meat inspection is taking place at the gate before you get to your site. You might want to pack accordingly. It will really suck ( for you and everyone behind you) if you have to unpack to get your meat cooler.

04-06-2013, 08:41 AM
We did not cook this last year Sean but there is no electric or water provided other than the sink and hose. My teammate Dan talked to the guy the other day and he said that generator ARE allowed to run all night meaning this will be a fun one to get sleep at. Portable power sources seem to be the norm for running overnight cookers and draft systems but some mods might be needed. Look at this link to some discussion already about the SI contest http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=156630

Thanks. I thought I had read somewhere we got water and electric. I'm off the grid and don't really need water so I'm cool.

I would hope that quiet hours are quiet hours no matter what the source. I hope they don't have the construction lights on all night.

According to the cooks pack, "You will be directed to your cooking location immediately after the inspection"

Chris, that's because they had the chili cookoff before us. This year they moved the chili cookoff to a different weekend. We shouldn't have to wait on anyone this year to get in and get our spaces. I think they still have the staging area because the streets are so narrow and they still want to load teams in 2 at a time.

Quick note from Reps- last yrs meat inspections was done in the holding area to save time -since you were getting into the sites so late following the chili cook-off. We are the meat inspectors again this yr- but we have not discussed doing meat inspection at the gate or in the holding area. We are expecting to be following the usual meat inspection procedure at your site. Will all of you be at the site by 6pm for the cook's meeting? Nancy

Nancy...You might want to read the Cooks Packet that was sent to all teams late last week. Here is a quote on the subject...

"We’ve designated a waiting area/meat inspection zone, which will be open for
your arrival any time after 1pm on Friday, April19th. The address is 145 Arthur
Kill Road (see map below). It is a green building set back from the road, across
the street from a cemetery. The address is located between Clarke Avenue and
Revere Lane. There will be a competition representative on-*‐site when you arrive. Meat inspection is scheduled at this location starting at 1pm."

Its Never good when the Reps and the Organizers are on different pages. Add in a Pitmaster Bus & crew and Im already starting to think I just mis spent $800.

Ok we spoke with Eze- new info will be sent out shortly- there was some misunderstanding re the need last year for the holding area and meat inspections being done in that area off site. This set up is not required for this year so meat Inspections will be available as per usual procedure as your load into your sites. Both Don & I will be walking around to complete meat inspections as teams are ready. Here's hoping for great weather & a successful event for all. Nancy

Greg, i think just to be led into your spot. I spoke to them last week and Eze was talking about resending out the cooks info to try and stagger the times teams start to arrive to minimize teams stacking up. Don't know if that is actually taking place or not. i plan on getting there around 1ish.

BKBBQ - if the KCBS event is Friday/Saturday, is Pitmasters running on Saturday or Sunday? I would think Saturday to get a large crowd at the filming, no?

Email a few minutes ago from Eze:

I apologize for the delay. It's been a long week, so say the least. Attached is the updated packets along with your load in times. The check in times will be in the waiting area, and we will have someone guide you to the main site, where you will be given a packet with further instructions. We will also guide you to your spot. The meat inspections will happen on the main site, NOT the waiting area. I think it still might be wrong on the packet and it was going to take to long to fix by tonight. If you have any other questions, let me know.

wasn't expecting an 11 am arrival time for us. We won't be leaving until 11am, so I have no idea how they will be able to fit us into our space. I have a feeling we will have to unload the trailer and line up an army to move it into our space by hand.

Anyway, time to log off and load the trailer, I'm working 5am - 11am, so guess what is will be parked in the company lot. Time to finish loading.


see you folks tomorrow.
