OK, who's decided to go ahead and attend? We'll be in town Thursday evening after a company dinner at the winery bistro in Rocheport. Hoping I can set up at least the canopy that night.

Friday evening, we'll be cooking for several of our real estate agents before we kick 'em out to start getting serious!

Gary suggested a $10 entry winner take all pot. Are we still doing that to enhance the payout?

I'm sure we'll be there somewhere around 8AM Friday morning...as far as the winner take all pot, I'm still game....we can see how many teams show up (we need 36 for the prize fund to go up) and adjust accordingly as needed.

It will be great to have so many Brethren and Beta Beta Que members gathered at one location. I hope everyone has a good time and does well......

See everyone there!

Something else this group has in common I believe but I can't quite put my finger on it. :wink: Looking forward to the weekend. What is it about the Boone County Fair that makes the weather turn hotter than hell the weekend of the BBQ? Besides July in Missouri. :roll:

Hitting Sam's on the way home and Bellybro 2 is picking up the meat from one of our Sponsors. Then the packing begins!

Want to wish everyone good luck this weekend!

Just spoke to Mike McMillen a little while ago. He told me that he's already arranged with you guys for early check in due to your tent company (you guys are doing it up BIG time, huh? LOL!) but that regular check in won't be til 10am. He did say however, that he'll be there sometime before 10am and if I get there and he isn't yet, just to find something to occupy my time til he arrives to show me my spot. Sooo... if he's not too early and I can get down (I'm not coming tonight afterall) before Mike arrives, I'll be available to help with anything BBs and Team Q needs until I can check in. I'll look you up in the AM. Supposedly I'm just a few spaces away from where you are. You ARE abiding by quiet hours with that big shindig, right? :lol: :lol: :wink:

Oh and so far... only 29 teams so 36 doesn't look good. They are going to boost grand to $500 from $300 anyway I understood him to say. So that $10 highest finisher takes all pot sounds good to me! I'd even go $20 do donate to Jay! :wink:

Not to worry Jeff. Alot of MOFOs like to hang on to their money untill the last minute. ( Fair weather cookers ect. ) Some just like to look at the field and will bail if they don't think they have a chance. I think we will have a good showing this weekend.

You can be my Beer Beeauch untill Butt Cheek BBQ gets there. :twisted:

What? Am I the first one up this morning? LOL With the heat yesterday, it's a wonder anyone is able to roll out of bed today!

I don't know when I've had a more fun time than this weekend. It all started off with a grand party/celebration hosted by the Belly Brothers and Team Q at the "Belly Q Pavilion", Brisket, wings, boneless breasts, pulled pork, ham, hash bown cassaroles, beans, slaw, hot rolls, keg of beer, and margaritas. We figure we had somewhere between 100-125 people (maybe more) pass through the serving line, there was very little clean up as there wasn't much left!

Saturday morning started with some fine biscuits and sausage gravy prepared by the Chick'N'Pig team. Man, that Thurmanator can sure do a great job of baking! After breakfast, everyone settles in to competition mode.

I don't have the score sheet (BellyBro has it) so I'll do the best I can from memory....
Maiah, (Sweet T's and my grand daughter) was 6th, Taylor, (Big Creek Jeff and Tammy's daughter) was 4th, and Samuel (Chick'N'Pig Skip and Denise's son) was 1st. WTG Samuel! All the kids did great and we all are very proud of them. These are our future Brethren legacy and they represent us in fine fashion.

Here's the results of the grown ups:

Chicken:
10) In Deep Sauce
09) Smoke This BBQ
08 Team Q
07) Rub It Til It Smokes
06) Chick'n Pig BBQ
05) Southern Booone BBQ

08 Flying Saucers BBQ
07) The Smokin' Walzs

All in all, the Brethren teams had a great weekend with eveyrone getting to take the walk! We did a lot of promotion of the site and I expect to see many new MoFos to come take a look at what we do and become members. I think I can speak for my brothers that we're proud to be a Brethren And we hope we represented you well!

I'm up, Gary, I'm up! LOL! BARELY! Slept 10 hours. Anyway, despite getting sick from the heat twice and a little disappointment in results (finished just out of that top ten overall at 12th), we had a great time!

And we did promote the Brethren site a LOT. In fact, when the local newspaper reporter came around to talk to us, most of what I talked about was the Brethren (BrooklynQ mod! :lol: ). Hope we made the cut! :wink:

Barbecue contest boasts grills, glaze, good tastes

By ALICE ROACH
July 30, 2006

Smoke circled the cook site as Skip Thurman lifted the lid of his Weber charcoal grill, exposing 15 hot and seasoned chicken thighs. After taking them off the grill, his wife, Denise, drizzled on just enough honey to make them sweet.
“It just puts a little glaze on it, and that glaze is just a nice touch,” Skip Thurman said.
The 15th Annual Boone’s Lick Trail BBQ Contest began Friday at the Boone County Fairgrounds as 30 teams set up camp and seasoned their competition meat. At about midnight Friday, teams put on their respective pork shoulders and beef briskets, while the ribs and chicken went on later Saturday. As Saturday wore on, the cooks worked toward plating their ideal barbecue.
“It should be moist, tender and juicy with a nice hint of smoke and with ooey-gooey sauce — the kind that sticks to your fingers,” Skip Thurman, a second year competitive barbecue cook from Columbia, said.
Once the chicken was off the grill, the team’s taste-tester, Skip and Denise’s son, Samuel, 9, was ready to try it.
“Ooh, these look good,” Samuel, who was also grand champion of ages 6 to 10 Kids Q competition, said.
“Samuel will always tell us his opinion,” Skip Thurman said.
http://digmo.org/images/news/073006fair2.jpg Marc Strid displays a barbecue entry for judges, from left to right, Floyd Durk, Walter Pfeffer and Stephen Smith on Saturday. (ANNE BREITWEISER/ Missourian)

As for the score on a two-to-nine scale, with nine being the best, the chicken is “probably an eight or nine,” Samuel said.
“That’s good enough for me,” Skip Thurman said.
The Thurmans compete as the Chick’n Pig BBQ team.
Mike McMillen has organized the Kansas City Society-sanctioned contest for the past six years.
“I do this mainly for our local people,” McMillen said. “We know most of these competitors because they are part of our community.”
Teams began turning in their entries at noon Saturday. Thirty judges, meanwhile, evaluate entries for taste, tenderness and appearance, after taking an oath “to objectively and subjectively evaluate each barbecue meat that is presented to my eyes, my nose and my palate.”
Ray Jansen of Jefferson City hasn’t changed the rub he uses since he developed it in 2001. But this weekend, he is trying something different with his brisket in hopes of winning.
“We’re hopeful we’re on the verge of doing better,” he said. “I’m looking to develop a winning record to promote my catering around Jefferson City.”
He and his son-in-law, Derick Miles, built their first cooker in 1996 to compete at the Missouri State Fair. “And we kind of got hooked after that,” Jansen said.
Now his wife, June, and daughter, Misty Miles, travel along to help the Ray J’s Bar-B-Que team.
The Pig Roy team of Mark Grieco of Olathe, Kan., and Don Allee of Butler won the grand champion award. Team Q was named Boone County’s Best Barbecuer.
Saturday ended with an awards ceremony to acknowledge the contestants’ work. The grand prize winner received a $500 award and an invitation to compete at the American Royal contest, McMillen said. The four other overall top winners and the top 10 teams in each meat category were awarded various prizes. As for winning, it takes the right recipe to bring in a prize.
“Everyone’s trying to find that one secret ingredient that sets them apart,” Skip Thurman said. “And when they find that, they’re hot.”
