Just a quick roll call for any Brethren who might be cooking or hanging out in Memphis next weekend. I'm hoping to connect with Chris from iQue, as well as Sully, Lunchlady and whoever else from Lunchmeat will be down there.

I'm lending a hand in the pork shoulder category but hope to spend a good deal of time just seeing old friends and making some new ones. See ya next Thursday?

I'll be with Smoker's Anonymous Thursday and Friday. Work won't let me get down there for the entire week. I believe that we are doing the 'Anything But' Seafood category for them.

Gus's it is. I'll let them know we'll be coming by!

Heads up folks, not sure what the weather forcast is for next weekend but I know it rained a ton last weekend for the concert series so the grass is going to be pretty messy. Wouldn't be MIM without shoes full of mud, though.

I may be flying in Thursday to visit the wife's family outside of Memphis. Maybe a good excuse to look some brothers up that I would not normally see but also to get away from the wife's family.

What better excuse do you need?:mrgreen:

Amazingly, the weather forecast says it'll be sunny and 80 degrees Thursday through Sunday. There's still some mud down at Tom Lee Park but should be the nicest weather they've had in forever.

We're getting a pretty big rain right now in Memphis. It'll be dry by the time the party starts big on Thursday. And the weather does look great! Better than any I've experienced on the river!

Yep. Three GC's for Myron. Luckily there was a huge Food Network crew with him all weekend to film it for an upcoming special. :)

Quite a thrill getting to walk on stage at MIM. Still waiting to see how we did in everything else we cooked Friday (beans, Steve's amazing brisket, shoulder, venison, thighs and hot wings). All those categories plus doing on-site judging for the hog wore me out!

I'm told we placed 11th in chicken 14th in beef and possible 23rd or 24th in hot wings not sure on the other categories. I guess we'll find out sooner or later. Thanks for helping out Clint it was a good time.
