Hey everyone. The Keystone Classic is rapidly filling up. We had over 50 teams entered last year and we are well on our way to surpassing that amount.

Where else can you enter a KCBS sanctioned event for $200 and get free ice, free electric, free water, restrooms and showers available 24 hours a day and security? Add to that the Friday ancillary categories winners get a cash prize and ancillary entrants get the meats and eggs supplied for free.

We may not be on a boardwalk, but we are on well drained pavement and you will know where you are going to setup well in advance of the contest day. Add to that easy access to the competition area for your arrival. Plus the all important close access to the interstate (I-81).

If you wish to enter or learn more check out the following links:

Application and check was sent this morning. This will be our first time here. After hearing the great reviews and feedback from others here and especially Pepper Monkey folks, we could not miss it.

(I wonder if they have ever seen cupcake chicken up there.....:wink:)

Looking forward to it!

Thanks to Andy Sawran from MABA, we will be screening American Smoke bbq documentary around 9pm either in the lobby where awards are held or in the judges tent (chefs choice turn in). bring a lawnchair and some beers. We'll also have dvds for sale. Gnome there was talk you would be driving a golfcart down the escalators for your entrance, so we're excited for that. See you there!
