Anybody going to be in town for the BarbeQlossal this weekend?
I'm judging and would like to meet up with some Brethren Fri. night. We should be in the campground by early Fri.

I'll be there Friday to prep the hog. Probably be in late Saturday afternoon as well. I'm helping Shotgun BBQ at this event so if your at the west end, stop in and say hi.

We are supposed to be the first spot next to the grandstand. I think its going to be spot #1 on the map. Or somewhere in there. We'll be there Thursday.

What did you cook that on? I meant to ask you at the GAB what the smoker in Randy's concession trailer was but I forgot. Looks very good.

Basically, its a Traeger 200. Doesn't have the roll up doors, though.

If you are coming from Ankeny there should be no problems. If you are headed west on I-80 you will have to detour to get to I-235 or you can take the Hwy 65 bypass south to University and head east to the fairgrounds.

I'd agree with Pyle's BBQ. Take the Ia 5/ US 65 bypass off I-35 just south of Des moines. Ia 5 will turn into US 65. Follow US 65 North to University Ave. or Ia 163 (roads are one and the same) Follow University West to the fairgrounds.
This would be the way I would take pulling a trailer but if you miss it and take I-235 through town, construction should'nt be too bad by now.

I will be there all day Friday (working until 3:00) and Friday evening (free time!). After work, I'll put on my Brethren shirt. I also will be there Saturday from about 11:00 on through the afternoon. If I see any Brethren hats, shirts, banners, etc., I'll say "Hi!!!" :-D

HINT: Sure wish we could get some more hats so I could wear one with the BarbeQlossaL t-shirt.

I see you have overcome the most difficult hurdle of operating an FEC (having a comfortable chair and a beverage). Good luck.
