The Go Naked BBQ Show - THE IRONMAN, Greencastle, PA 17225, April 4-5, 2014

Alright all you BBQ'ers! Here it is, the OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT of The Go Naked BBQ Show - the Ironman! We haven't even officially announced and we are up to 12 teams already registered! This year's event will be April 4th&5th, 2014, hosted by Mason-Dixon BBQ Services in Greencastle, PA. (www.mdbbqservices.com)

As with tradition, Go Naked means NO ELECTRIC! No Gurus, Mavericks, Pellet Smokers, Rotisseries, etc.! Just you, your pit, meat, spices, sauce, and your knowledge!

New this year is THE IRONMAN! That means you turn in what you cook - 1 Brisket, 1 Pork Butt, 1 Rack of Ribs, 7 pieces of chicken! A real challenge for the cooks!

This will be a MABA sanctioned event (www.mabbqa.com) and with all 4 meats, THIS WILL BE A QUALIFIER FOR THE JACK AND THE ROYAL!

For the official rules, registration information, and other helpful hints, visit the website at www.gnbbqshow.com.

See you soon! Keep watching for FAQ's and for a full list of rules.....

Excellent! Reminiscent of the DeerHunter competition we had up at BBQGURU some years back (though of course Fred allowed electricity at that one). Make sure Red Todd knows about this, he won the Deerhunter, I am sure he would do this one.

7 pieces of chicken, no garnish, no water, no electricity but sounds like you can bring a generator.

Hey Brett.

Red actually competed in this event 2 years ago - we have been doing it for 4 years now, but this is the first year it will be all 4 meats and the first year it will be a qualifier. The last few years, it was a Ribs and Chicken one day event.

I don't think Red won....rib issues if I recall.....:wink:

Yep turn-ins still 6 pcs - we do allow you to prep/cook 7 pcs of chicken - 1 to taste, the rest turn-in. The difficulty here is in the meat selection and not over/undercooking. Also the challenge of knowing how your pit works without gadgets and being able to time your cook without stay-in thermos.

No Garnish. 9x9 boxes with foil for bottom. Still have to present well.

Electric allowed at site for lights/heat/radio/etc; just nothing attached to cooker or used in prep or turn-in. No electric knives, no Mavericks, no Gurus/Stokers, no Pellet cookers, etc. If you're not sure you should be using it because it is electric or battery operated, you probably shouldn't. Only exception is a Thermopen or similar to temp food as that is a food safety issue.

Can we police everyone - probably not - but all the folks who have done this in the past have participated for the challenge of doing it. It is a DQ if we catch someone though.

We are IN ... or at least the check is on it's way ... We have done every GoNaked and as most of you know, Eric always puts on a great competition. Last year when rumors were floating around about "Ironman" we were pretty happy. Glad it has all worked out. Incredibly happy that the no sauce but thick glaze or possibly gloppy spritz regardless how dare you turn in dry rubbed meat during a no suace competition rule is OUT!!! Happy to start the season off in Eric's back yard, as in the past, if the bonfire doesn't work out we will have our chiminea cranked and coffee at the ready for anyone that needs to stop by to warm up! See you all there!

I recollect a woman won the chili cook-off in December and the trophy reads "Chili King". So she may have a point. But "Iron-Person" just doesn't sound right.
