At home in my kitchen where it's nice and warm. Well at least trimming it. I guess I'll have to suffer in the trailer when it comes time to inject :wink:

Yeah but they're a bunch of wimps. They're not doing the overnight. No Butt or Brisket and no .....rhymes with malls

Aw, come on, we got em, they just hide in the winter.
And back on topic, If there is a contest here in January, I am "so" there.

Kevin, I did some more checking... it's in February. I think it's the 24th... On Mille Lacs Lake near Isle, MN. There might be something announcing it in the Bullsheet soon. It seems to be recently organized but is not sanctioned. As Steve said, no butt or brisket so it's done in a single day. If I had an ice hut... man oh man, I'd be tempted!

Are you guy's kidding? I'll be routing for you guys from the comfort of my nice warm home. I compete for the fun of it. Competing in those kind of condititons would be less than fun for us. I could just see us all getting sick. Thank you for asking.

I'm thinking the conditions may be better than 100* on the asphalt in NY this summer.

i love extremes! they're some of my favorite things. although i prefer heat to cold, but i think a contest in january would be fun and if i can swing the weekend off i think i'm going to try to make it, plus with this winter there is a good chance it will be 74*.

I can't wait to head out tomorrow morning! I get so ramped up before a competition that I can't sleep. Think I should go take a pill or something....

The weather will actually be quite balmy for New Hampshire in January. Looking forward to sharing an adult beverage or two with some of the brethren!

Dang it's cold here in the beautiful White Mountains in Lincoln NH. 30 degrees with 10mph winds so with the wind chill it feels like 22. 15 teams all set up and ready to cook. People's choice wings tonight and chicken, ribs, pork, brisket and chili tomorrow. Hopefully we all survive the night......

Got on the internet here in Lincoln. Having a great time! It's after midnight and real cold. We didn't call in the wings....but it's all good. Had many an adult beverage, had fun spending some time with Yankee BBQ and I Smell Smoke!, The Lakeside Smokers and lunchmeat, among others. This is fun, despite the cold.

Smoker has been dropping in temp slowly but surely, never smoked in 20 degree temps before.....gonna be a long night!

I was so thrilled to hear that everyone had such a blast and was of course so proud of Q Haven and all our friends in the circuit! I'm feeling better, thanks, and am looking forward to seeing you soon!
