Got our application in. Primal Meat Smokers will be there! Who among the Brethren are going to participate in the 1st Annual Rubbin' N Racin' BBQ Cook-Off at Lime Rock Park 5/26-5/28? Should be a great weekend! The Governor of Connecticut, Jody Rell is supposed to sanction it soon and it will therefore be a State Championship.

Yours in BBQ,

Cliff

I really wanted to do this one.

However, the large entry fee ($325), the four day commitment, not being able to even load up until 6:30 PM Monday night, the large numbers of categories (corn chowder on two different days?) have all caused me to cross this one off.

Vito sent an email out on the NEBS list that the Gov Rell signed the proclomation. So it is a state championship

Ted you don't have to cook the extra categories if you don't want to. Its only $225 for the grilling and KCBS. Heck I know its more than that for Harpoon.

The Anchormen will be there.

I'd pay a grand to go to Harpoon....

Hey, it's just not for us. I hope you all have a great time.

we would have liked to but we set our schedule sometime around Super Bowl. A little more notice, especaily for an event that has 3 days of cooking, I think is in order

Just received the Spring Newsletter from Lime Rock Park. It has a nice full page blurb about the BBQ contest on page 19.

Does anyone know how many teams have signed up by now?

Did a full cook with turn ins in prep for Lime Rock today. Last word is that they have 13 teams. 15 teams makes it a qualifier. Expecting 20 to 25 teams. Room for 100. Really nice venue. It is sanctioned by CT Governor Jody Rell. Turn in times will be conventional KCBS on Memorial Day. Brake down at 4PM. Awards 4:30 PM. Any other Brethren going? Going to fly our new Brethren banner for the first time there!

Yours in BBQ,
