There will be a competition this July 13-14 in Dayton (Kettering), Ohio.

This is non-sanctioned, but they hope to have it sanctioned next year. They're going by KCBS rules with the exception of allowing any time of cooker desired, gas, electric, wood or charcoal.

Entry fees are only $100, with 100% payout. If you're close, it should be fun. The guys putting this on are really great guys, and it's at an American Legion, with lots of trees and grass. It's also about 15 minutes from my house!

are you entering? i have a wedding in cincy on saturday the 14th otherwise, i'd go down there and watch at least... maybe burn some meat. i work with jimmy's hog pen.

Rick, we may have met if you do stuff with Jimmy. :) Yes, we're entering. It's the same weekend as Grand Rapids, which we'd only do because my teammate has family there, but 15 minutes from home is much better than 6 hours! I can actually go home to get some sleep, and if I forget something, I can send someone to get it! We'll be able to try out a more minimalist approach.

If you talk to Jimmy, tell him to send me an email! I haven't heard from him in months.

Yup, thats going to be my 1st comp and I am nervous as all get out!!:eek:

Not sure when I will be getting in on Friday but I am hoping around noon. I said HOPING.:roll:

Would love to meet you Rick:-D.

Curt, I think I might have met you at the Nelsonville comp a couple of years ago but it was dark and well....I'd had a couple of pops with the foam on top too!!:wink:

Still trying to get things ready.:roll:

I know. Thats what everyone says.

Easier said than done!!:lol:

Biggest WORRY is that I will embarass myself with the brisket......

My major stumbling block right now is only having one WSM to cook everything on. Bringing the OTG as well. I have been asking around to see if there was anyone willing to let me borrow their WSM for a couple of days but no leads as of yet.:roll:

What's the weather supposed to be like?

cmcadams
07-10-2007, 08:50 AM
Weather is basically good... 30% chance of rain on Friday, no rain Saturday, with highs in the low 80's, humidity shouldn't be bad.

Curt, good luck to you and your team. Thinking im half tempted to drive down and hand out. But also thinking of driving to G.Rapids and meet tonto and others.
If the weather is chitty here and they were calling for rain on Saturday, may just stay home and enjoy the A/C.

Just want everybody whose doing comps this weekend to enjoy yourselves and keep hydrated.

Huff BBQ, the only egger using eggs in the comp of 16 entries did pretty well with
1st in ribs
2nd in brisket
7th in pork
3rd overall

dave stamper (an egger) of ribs & bibs was grand champion and first in brisket

The comp was fun... judging was really inconsistent, but that was expected. The main point of the comp was to support a new, local comp so that next year will be sanctioned.

It was a good time last year. My team name changed after that comp, I was Big Mike's BBQ last year.

i'm planning on taking my 34' UAV (urban assault vehicle!). the grounds is a park like setting with a lot of shade trees. they had at least one huge generator and water buffalos last year. the legion post is open during the comp with cash bar and restrooms. email jimmy or jimmy with questions. (email addys are on the KCBS event page). several stores nearby: krogers, sam's, dorothy lane market...

Yea he just got the domain not too long ago. He will be adding to it soon. He at least wanted to get the front page up for folks.

Tonto, I imagine they can fit you in there. You may want to arrive on Thursday night though. We only had 16 teams last year so we had plenty of room to spread out but I think this year we will have a considerable amount more of teams. I'd go ahead and give Jim Ferguson a shout just to make sure.

Like RTD said, we had large generators and a water buffalo last year.

I think the Ohio comps are going to get together to promote next year's comps in Dayton, Cincy and Nelsonville.. I'll probably be involved somehow with it, and let people know what's going on.

Thanks for bumping this thread Rick. We got the official word from KCBS last week that we are sanctioned for July 18-19, 2008 and we are also a qualifier. Glad to see that you'll be able to cook next year and I'm sure Dennis will appreciate the egg to egg competition.

We can handle the 37' rig Tonto. As for electric, we'll have generators but those with their own generators are encouraged to bring them. Like Rick said, we will have buffs onsite which means you will need to carry what water you need.

you can check them out this friday, 28 dec at hank's on patterson. much better live than that demo shows. hank's is pretty much their 'home' bar and they have a lot of loyal fans from there that follow them everywhere.

anyway, just thought i'd throw that out there... not trying to influence the judges in anyway! :biggrin::biggrin: i'm gonna need all the help i can get
