I bought an FEC 500 new, and ordered the trailer from S&S. This picture does not show the worktop commerical fridge we put in, along with shelving. Here is what we came from....

Right now it looks like we will cook Laurie, Pacific, Columbia (Sept), Nashville TN and maybe Ankeny Iowa DU cook. Hermann is the same weekend as Nashville. Oops, Mountain Grove too.

I won't be cooking the Sept contest as that is the weekend for my store's inventory, but maybe I can get down to say HI.....

That may be doable. Is it on the KCBS site yet? What date? Hope to see you! Is it just me, or is this site friendlier than some of the others......?

The Brain Injury Contest is October 12th and 13th.

BTW, the September contest in Columbia is not sanctioned by KCBS. They are still working on getting sanctioned.

I did not know that about September. Do you suspect they will get sanctioning? If not, I will most likely skip it.

Because I wasn't aware that lively BBQ discussion could be had without all the pretense of some other sites. Thanks for the jealous comments, they are well taken! For the record, this "BBQ thang" started with a Brinkman offset on a friends convenience store lot 3 years ago. Now, it's gotten a mind of it's own......so much so that the real job get's in the way from time to time.

Yes, it is quite lively around here. Although every "blue moon" we have a hiccup that is quickly handled. We have arguments just like most families and agree to disagree. Additionally, most of us know when it is time to go to our room for a time out:biggrin: .

I don't want to alarm you, but this may not be the ideal group to use as a standard for mental health. :-D
Nice rig man! My wife saw me looking at it last night and had only one word. "NO."

I have the opposite situation.

My wife saw it and thought is was great.

Who know's what might happen for my next birthday.

Ok....the pipe dream is over, I'm going back to Qtalk.

$11,000 to Fast Eddy, $11,000 to S&S Trailers, $2,000 to your local Honda Generator Dealer, $1,000 at a used Restaurant Equipment store (fridge), $500 to you local fabricator to marry the pit and trailer, another $1,000 in miscellaneous "stuff" and your all set!

And a $30,000 pick-up to pull it.

Oh My God - I spent That Much? I need a drink.......
