I am looking forward to it, I have the chicken down, the pork is going to be a fun entry, and I got the chef's choice ready also.
Having a hard time with the fish entry though. It says whole steak or fillet. I was toying with trying to make medallions out of the fillet. I hope I dont get DQ'ed.

Rep-ing means he will be there as the official from New England BBQ Society to make sure things run according to the rules.

OK, I'm sick of seeing my posts on this thread too, but this is looking like a fun day filled with great teams ready to beat my butt senseless! After all of the ice here in recent weeks, I'm just just looking forward to spending a day with Purple Turtle, the Anchormen, IQue, etc.

And flying my hand drawn brethren flag high above my grill...

Grillin' on the Bay was mentioned in this week's Time Out NY in an article about cooking competitions; was mentioned in today's NY Daily News and also had the follwing piece in the NY Observer....between the Doc's class and this, we're looking forward to a great weekend for NY bbq....

Smokin’ on the Shore

In the world of barbecue, competition burns hotter than an open pit in Abilene. It seems anyone who is even slightly familiar with the culinary tradition has an opinion about the marriage of smoke and meat—dry rub or wet, spicy or sweet, pork or beef and so on. But at “Grillin’ On the Bay,” the city’s only major BBQ contest sanctioned by the New England Barbecue Society (NEBS), the judges’ taste buds are the only ones that really matter. And on Saturday, March 31, cooking teams will flock—“rain or shine”—to Sheepshead Bay for the chance to take home the title of grand champion and a whole lot of bragging rights.

Now in its second year, the event isn’t reserved for pit masters and pork flesh alone. On the contrary, the public is encouraged to come and watch the BBQ battle while munching on smoked savories provided by the mesquite-mongers at Atom’s Ribs and White Trash.

“People are supportive of each other, but everyone wants to step over everyone else’s back to get to the stage,” said Matt Fisher, the event’s co-organizer. “There’s some trash-talking going on, but it’s friendly. The best part of the barbecue world is that everyone is very genuine and open.” It’s a good thing, too, because the 24 competing groups are each allotted a 15-by-15-foot space from which to work their magic.

Saveur food editor Todd Coleman, EatingforBrooklyn.com blogger Pete Hassler and freelance writer Paul Lukas are among the gutsy arbiters slated to be in attendance. Each team will enter a chicken, pork, fish and “chef’s choice” dish. Last year, a crew from the Purple Turtle catering company in Fairfield, Conn., took home top honors, but, said Mr. Fisher, everyone is a winner when the proceeds benefit a great cause like the St. Mark’s Sports Association for kids.

I have no idea where the Fairfield thing came from.....The NY Daily News piece (http://nydailynews.com/lifestyle/food/2007/03/28/2007-03-28_news_bites.html) also said that points from the contest count towards the Jack. If I had known that I'd be competing myself.....:roll:

I can't wait I am going first thing in the AM with Clint (I am even trying to make him drive). I am planning on being his "pit bit**" for the day and seeing how much beer I can drink. Oh, I am also making smoked bologna heroes at some point for my friend Chris (with the orange clogs). Should be a blast.

Matt, you guys did such a great job. We had such a good time and it feels even better to see SmokeInDaEye (Clint) leave with both a trophy and a ribbon (miso glazed salmon was awesome and the ribs were kliler)!!! Congrats to all the brethen on a great showing and a great time (way to go Anchorman!). PS, I drank ALOT of Pig Slap Ale yesterday, really good stuff and thanks again to Charlie (owner).

Nice shots, Ted! Do you mind if we add some of those to the gallery on the web page?

If anyone else got some pics, let me know...please. I have some that I'll try to upload tonight. I came home to no connection last night and just installed a new router/modem this afternoon.

Nancee, it was awesome to see you, too. There were actually enough people there that I can honestly say I don't want to leave anyone out...it was just great to see everyone! We saw alot of friends and made many new ones...put faces to internet names and just had a great time.

We got alot of thanks, which was great, but without the teams and the judges, it would have been the five of us standing around, so thanks to you all who came from near and far to be a part of this event....and the sponsors. RUB BBQ, Pork Slap Ale, Plowboys BBQ, Hawgeyes BBQ, Dizzy Pig, Char-Broil, Pork Slap Ale, Waterfront Ale House, Williams' Grillin' Sauces, Willie B's, Vacation Village....All of the support has been tremendous. How did I forget Spicewine!!!!

We had so much fun yesterday. It was really cool to spend a day with fun people all sharing what we love doing....drinking beer. I know, I know....and cooking, too.:rolleyes:

Clint, those ribs were dynamite....great showing, brother!
