We'll be arriving Friday. When, exactly, is still up in the air. Dmitri says that he needs everyone who is going to be on-site Friday night to be there before 5:30, so we may end up spending Friday night at the motel and coming down to hang out.

We will be doing the buck a bone thing. Anyone have any idea how many ribs we might go through? I planned on bringing a case.

If you are looking for a motel, I stay at Schultes when I am up for Luge. It is on the main road to town, is inexpensive, and the people who run it are very nice.

I already booked us at the Econolodge, since Charlie's family is joining us and we needed a couple of rooms near each other. Lodging in the area seems to be filling up for the holiday weekend. Looks like I could have saved a few bucks, though. I appreciate the advice and I'll make use of it next year.

Thanks!

We're going to Lake Placid. Cannot wait to be there! We had a ton of fun there last year. We're going to leave Thursday night and motel it so we just have a short drive Friday to the site.

Still waiting to hear the details about the midnight grilling bash, whether it is KCBS garnish, turn in box, etc.

I also received this from Dmitry in May.

Open (must be edible) garnish. No other meats, or seafood including in the sauce (i.e no lobster sauce or bacon wrap). Worcestershire sauce is ok. Sauce can be smooth or chunky. Cheese and other dairy products are permitted. no skewers, toothpick, foil, etc, permitted. A minimum of 6 pieces of chicken separate and identifiable must be submitted, however, steaks will be cut at the table if submitted whole. Total combine score of chicken and steak will produce the winner. Winner will receive $500, second place $300, third place $200, 4-6 places gift certificates to stores, gasoline stations and local restaurants.

Hope that helps.

lunchmeat will be there so bring yer earplugs if you are one who doesn't enjoy 'the call'....... there's no stopping him and I wouldn't want to anyway.

I will wave from the other side. Earplugs aren't enuff. We are doing a demo and buck a bone also.

What is everyone making for their demoes? Dmitry is counting on us to all get together and figure it out so its interesting and not all the same stuff.

I'm going over Thursday morning for that class at the Marriott. Friday I'll help Jim Boggs with the judging class at the beach house. Today I cooked 50 slabs for the buck-a-bone and Saturday I'm demonstrating Kikcoyne chuck roast for pulled beef. The KCBS contest will be easier.Even though it's the closest contest to my house I'm staying over on Sunday

...Today I cooked 50 slabs for the buck-a-bone...

Rich,

I've never done one of these buck-a-bone things before, so I'm at a loss as to how much to prepare. Is 50 slabs the average amount that teams go through? Or does Lost Nation's reputation boost your "sales", if sales is the word here?

contest food doesnt have to be prepared on site? I should really start taking better notes...:wink:
everyone has to be at the oval by 5:30 or is that just for vehicles and equipment??

50 is just what fit's easily in my pit, the weather should be good for Saturday. I'm bringing the dump truck so I have plenty of room.

I'm teaching a BBQ 101 class at the Marriott Thursday evening.
You can pre cook the ribs for the buck-a-bone, I chose to pre cook, leaves more chilling time on Saturday. I think the vehicles aren't permitted in between 5:30 and 11:00 while the festival is open.

Good Luck to all the teams going to Lake Placid. Unfortunately due to end of quarter inventory we will not be there. Next Year we hope. Some NJ friends of ours will be up to judge. Once again, GOOD LUCK to all the Brethren.

I actually knew but forgot about the pre cooking thing, I dont have any time to do it beforehand anyway.

I did not know about your class though, too bad I would have liked to check it out

was thinking more along the lines of 8-10 myself..........whats everyone else besides Mr. "FiftyJustFitsInThePitNice" :lol: doing?

I was thinking in the 8 to 10 range also. Dimitri mentioned that they are anticipating 1000 people on Friday and similar or greater numbers on Saturday. Of course, since I don't have a clue as to what percentage of the crowd will be sampling, that's pretty much just a meaningless BFN.

Hey Jim,
If I were you I would e-mail Dmitry. His e-mail addy is on the ILBBQ website. I don't know about staying onsite but there are a few campgrounds around.
Great to meet you in NH, and I hope you make it to LP.


BTW... we are demo-ing tri-tip and/or chicken wings.

We will cook as many ribs as we can comfortably bring with us. I am hoping to do a case. Gary may not feel the same way though. heheh.

I am definitely gonna be at Lake Placid. I did a google search and found a few campgrounds nearby -- thanks for the suggestion about emailing Dmitry, he may know which ones are nice. Will be nice to see you again.

I agree with 2 outta 3 of those, this was our first of the year and was a whole lot of fun seeing people again.

Being our 2nd contest ever, was even better meeting a bunch of new people with the exception of a few................actually met the first person I thought was kind of a dick, but met some more new people that were way cool by far.

While I love Lake Placid, I didnt think the site was laid out all that well......but then as bad as the judges thought we were, maybe we deserved to be sruck in the middle :icon_pissed

Thank you Ted for not posting everyone's results!
