Quick review...

Happy to see bigger crowds this year than the past 2 years, but some work needs to be done on the vendors. There were not a whole lot of upper-scale vendors this year, mostly trinkets and cheapo items. I especially missed all the quality knife and quality small BBQ hardware vendors, and also I did not see the pork checkoff folks there this year as in the past, though I may have just bypassed them. They usually make a big ruckus throwing out freebie shirts and caps.

Hint to those who attend to spectate: A big highlight for us is the generosity of the European visitors, who have delicious samples in big portions available almost all the time and are among the most talkative teams there. I guess if you come that far, you want to make the most of it. As soon as we arrive, we first make a beeline for the European team area before doing anything else.

Second hint: Get in line to buy vendor cue prior to noon. 10:30-11 is shorter wait time than 11:30-3. It took us 45 minutes to arrive at the head of the line this year. Those folks were making cash!

I did not see a BBQ Brethren banner there this year, though it is probably just because I was not observant enough. I'm sure it flew somewhere! Another great event. Looking forward to Oct. 25, 2014!

You got a picture of brethren..... Can You Smell My Pits is Mike and Vinny, and they are on here. Great guys in person and they did very well as rookies.

I missed a lot of Brethren, too. We need flags, or banners...... Something!
