Hi Sal,

Any chance I can get a application sent to me. Talked to someone last week and they were supposed to send me one. Also can I get some flyers to put up at the fire houses and at work. I thought I saw you walking around bellmore train station tonite but wasn't sure if it was you.
Thanks,
Tony

I'm looking forward to this event. It might be the last for the year on Long Island.

I'll probably be judging, which I don't get a chance to do a lot of these days.

Who's coming down? It's a fun, inexpensive, local event. Linda and Jerry are repping it and the vast majority of the judges will have been certified (and some are certifiable).

Too bad it would be nice if they stayed home and gave people who actually like BBQ the chance to judge ours fairly.

Awesome! Don't feel scared no one bites. BBQ competition is one of the oddest competition sports out there. Its the one place where the people you compete against will give and tell you just about anything they can. We don't (normally) run you out of the site and have been known to lend everything from a jar of sauce to spare racks of ribs or a brisket.

One warning though. Once you are in you ain't getting out. My wife likes to tell people that "there is no 12 step program". :)

As for ribs- Peoples choice cook them as fall off the BONE. For judged; not fall off the bone.
for the other categories, cook something taht is easy and looks nice and tastes awesome.

Good LUCK!!!

#1 TIP just have fun !!!!!!!!

we are coming down the home stretch trying to get the final count of teams and we also need to order ribs for peoples choice.

we are paying out 100% of the entry fees into the prize pool so MORE TEAMS = MORE CASH

I hope this doesn't sound too much like a stupid question but due to the weather forcast is the cook off still on.

Are the Chef's Choice entries being turned in platter style or in the standard turn in box? If the turn in box, how many portions? Also, the packet says green garnish is allowed. Does the mean garnish is optional or mandatory?

motoeric
09-20-2013, 12:11 AM
I'm not sure, but I believe that turn-ins will be in a standard box, 7 portions. I also believe that the categories are chicken, ribs and beef, not Chef's Choice.

Hopefully Sal or Greg will pipe in and lay down the lay. If not, there phone numbers are at the top of the thread.

Anchor

Beef and chicken categories are chefs choice
Green garnish permitted, 7 portions in a styrofoam

As for the weather, hands down the most nerve wracking part of organizing a comp!

I just checked the weather again.

Rain should be gone by 9:00 am and the rest of the day should be beautiful.

I plan on buying some tickets after the judging and trying out some ribs!

See you tomorrow.

We had such an awesome time yesterday!!! Very long day but well worth it. We were very pleased with how we ranked considering this was our first competition. We learned a lot, and met some really great people! My wife has the bug now, and is already thinking about the next competition! A job well done by all!!!

It was a well run event and everyone seemed to have a great time. More importantly, it seems like a good deal of money was raised for a great cause.

We REALLY lucked into some great weather. It was absolutely beautiful.

Thanks to Sal, Greg and everyone at the Hicksville FD for running a great event.

Thanks to Linda and Jerry for doing a great job as Reps.

Thanks to all the teams for turning in great food for us judges.

Thanks to the Mr. Softee truck for having the red, white and blue ice pops.

Congratulations to everyone that walked.
