Hello All,

I am brand new (today) to the BBQ Brethren. I've lurked for some time but was compelled to register today because of this specific event.

I would really appreciate it if anyone competing in this event would be willing to introduce me to the experience of competition Q.

I have also posted in the competition forum in the mentor / mentee thread.

I have been a backyard smoker for about 7 years and have never been to a competition. I wold like to witness first-hand what all the fuss is about.

Thank you,
SmokingMachine

Best way to learn is to jump in and do a competition. I am sure Saturday if you walk around and introduce yourself and have any questions Teams will be happy to help you out.

I just heard back from Bob and 3 more teams signed up today and he is positive that they will hit the 15 teams. And he is also waiving the late fee for anybody that is thinking about signing since the late fee would have taken effect today.:clap2:

I posted them in the CONTEST ANNOUNCEMENT thread

wickedbbq'r
07-05-2013, 12:28 PM
Grand = $1500.00 (trophy)
RG = $1000.00 (trophy)
1st each category $400 (plaque)
2nd each category $250 (plaque)
3rd each category $150 (plaque)
4th each category $100 (plaque)
5th each category $75 (plaque)

A first year contest with a good payout and is one of only two contests in the state. Don't see any reason why it shouldn't reach 15 teams.

Troy? :becky:

Really hope they pick a better weekend next year. Also, Westport was not trailer/RV friendly. The third year of Westport we were told 20x20 only, before they threw in the towel and went to a backyard only format. I suspect the town of Westport was the problem and not the organizer, but if I was not already committed to Troy and considering this event, I would be asking a lot of hard questions about space availability.

It's slightly closer than Troy for me, so will be watching feedback carefully to determine if we attend next year.

In the meantime, we are just happy Stubborn Bull and Q Haven are going here and not Troy. :icon_smile_tongue:

on Google Maps, 1050 Wash Blvd does not look like a park entrance - looks more like a local highway or something.

But I called up the park directly and they confirmed that is the address. Its caddycorner to the UCONN campus in Stamford and near the Trump Park Residence. She said its a fenced in area that is an "expanded" area of the park that they use for events.

anyone have any idea where that is in relation to the hampton inn?

Q Haven

It is right across the street from my wife's office, and is pretty much right in downtown Stamford. It may look different on Google Maps because this is a brand new park that was just constructed, with the ribbon cutting held in May.

I guess that anyone who could answer this is already there, but where in the park is the Judges Tent (from the map, it looks like a big park)? Is it in the parking lot, the cherry tree grove, etc.?

How many teams are competing?

Thanks!

07-13-2013, 10:24 PM
the park is small.

there's a really good amount of fun stuff for kids and adults.

I think there are 21 teams here.

not sure where the judges tent is, but you'll find it OK.

we had a blast up there.. broke in a team mate, drank a little more than I should and sweated out a good 10 lbs... got calls where we didnt expect it and no calls where we did...


guess thats typical. :) Congrats to all that got to walk, and everyone who survived the heat.


and thanks to whoever the idiots were(from the public) who were lined up on the side of my trailer hiding from the sun and left the dents in between the wall joists. :evil:
