I'm not a competitor, but I might go down there to check it out and do the people's choice thing.

quick question. if someone was driving from jefferson city missouri, leaving about 5-6pm that night, wanting to drive maybe 4-5hrs, pulling a trailer, which would be the easiest town to stop in and restart in the morning with the least amount of time to travel on that friday?

Well, Google Maps says it's only a 5.5 hour drive from Jeff City to Bixby, and that seems about right to me. If you're gonna split it up, I'd try to make it at least to Joplin. Once you cross the state line, You'll be on the turnpike all the way to Tulsa, and it might be harder to find a place to stay. I'd say just push it all the way to Tulsa and then sleep a little later the next morning. I'll PM my cell number if you all need a hand with anything while you're in town.

Now THAT's what this board is about! Thank you!

We had brother Slat come to our aid at Charleston MO a few years back!
Another shining moment for the Brethren, brothers in smoke!

Wow! Way to DOMINATE, Steve!

But . . . why can't any of our brethren get into the top 10 in brisket?

Is the popular expectation of what brisket should be advancing beyond what we talk about here?

Thanks. I was pretty happy with the results. We probably could have had a chance overall but I tanked the pork. We finished 41st in pork. I think it was too overdone. Our brisket finished 17th and was a little overdone but we were pretty happy with 17th out of 68. We just missed the top 10 and finished 11th overall with the bonus of a 1st in steak. Next time, I would love to meet any of you guys out there.

I was there today, but never saw Steve's space. Sorry I missed you, Bro.

I did talk to Mark and Becky for a while- it was good to meet them, and it looked like they were having a good time. They set me up with a panful of chicken, which was top-notch. Very, very good!

Most of the stuff I got for the people's choice was lackluster, unfortunately. The park was absolutely packed with people, and there were good tunes coming from the stages (it's also a Blues festival- John Lee Hooker, Jr. is probably playing right now). I'm not a competitor, but it sure looks like a good venue. And the judges seem to have liked what the Brethren cook! Congratulations to all!

I did not compete this weekend, but did get to meet Mark and Becky, it was a pleasure...

I don't post a lot here, but I did take 3rd among many top teams in brisket last week in Sallisaw(13th overall), so Brethren do get to walk in that category as well....

Steve - The Pork Pullin Plowboys were next to you two years ago at Art of BBQ in Tulsa. I remember the name and the OSU bus.

Todd, you mean this bus? We were there too in '05. I thought the bus was way cool, and liked when they played the OSU fight song when turn in time started.

Yup. That open spot next to the bus was us. We arrived late that year. Still got a 2nd place brisket call. :wink:
