In my attempt to have 100% certified judges for this contest, I am around 11 judges short of a full field. At present I have 29. If there are any of you that are certified, or know of any certified judges that are free that weekend, I could use your help as judges for this contest.
You or they can contact me via e-mail @ jkjohnson@centurytel.net

Also, who is planning on attending?

I was hoping that it was either you or Bossman that was coming. Aimee called me awhile back and said there was a team from NE wanting to get in the contest, I told her "hell yea, let's see what they got!" :mrgreen:

As far as a mini bash...around these parts most all the contests are like a mini bash...lots of MO. IL, and KS brothers that compete and we cross each others paths usually at least once a year. At the Sedalia contest this year, I don't think there was less than 10 Brethren teams there.....
you should try to add that one to your calendar next year as well!

Hey guys!

Just a thought if we bought some wings would one or two of the teams want to fix those up for the volunteers...i.e. me too...I will buy them if you could prepare them. I am almost positive nobody wants me fixin' anything.

We were going to have a people's choice wings contest (not happening) I think I made the health dept. mad by expressing my opinion. I don't really think they are going to be on our side this year...(just a guess)! If you don't have time to fix the wings no worries...I was just thinkin' Let me know! Thanks!

I don't understand any of the health depts. Here in Cole County every weekend almost there are charitable organizations that sell BBQ at a grocery store parking lot here in Jefferson City. First off I know that according to Cole County Health Dept rules you must have a screened in area for your BBQ pit and none of these have one. I know this because I went about half way through the BS with them myself until I decided it was better for me not to deal with them.

So anyway, these non-profs can sell their BBQ and not have to follow the health codes so why do you have to in Boone County for a wing fling for the public. If you ask me, someone at the health dept. has their oxygen cut off to their brain cause their head is up their a$$.
I know that the health code rules differ county to county, but do food borne bacteria discriminated on which county they go to?

AMEN BROTHER! I hear ya! Like I said I am pretty sure after my conversation(s) with them the last week and a 1/2 they are in no position to cut us a break! Oh well I was the one that spoke my mind (I did it to myself) I have no reason to complain other than they are the hardest group of people to get along with. PLUS to add to it....the health inspector that is assigned to our competition just started with the health department...yep brand spakin' new....green around the collar.....she will be looking at every little detail to assure she doesn't miss a beat. AND we didn't exactly get off on the right foot with each other either. Should be interesting to say the least.

If it is on private property and no one is selling food, they have no reason to be there and can not carry out any kind of inspections. Boone Co. Health Dept. is a Pain in the Arse!! Don't let them push you around. Just ask them to leave.

Yeah we are serving food there....should have just kept my damn mouth shut.....it will be okay...really the vendors have to deal with them. Unless the health dept. feels they have to get too pushy...then I will ask them if they want to try some of the wings (Spice) is cooking for us. :wink: Okay I better stop there...don't want this to get to out of control...:icon_sleepy

The problem with the "Private Property" issue is that because you have it open to the public, it becomes the business of Boone County and can be regulated by them. I've spent some time this morning reading their health code and they also have a page dedicated to BBQ contests, Hmmmm..., they seem to be pretty aggressive.
Click here to read (http://www.gocolumbiamo.com/Health/Food_Safety/Temp_Food_Operations/comp_bbq.php)

If an event is 'invitation only' then it looks like they have no jurisdiction. From what I read into this the BCHD could make it interesting for the individual teams if they choose. As far as definitions go, each team is considered to be a food establishment since they are preparing, cooking, and serving food to the public(judges). But sounds like there is a fine line when it comes to judges. The 'Public' who will be judging are invitation only so it seems to me that BCHD doesn't have any jurisdiction on the contestants. I bet if they wanted to push it though they could have their way. I'm just ranting. After owning and operating three restaurants throughout the years has left me a little bitter when it comes to the health dept. thing.

According to what Aimee told me, she said the CHD had no jurisdiction on teams because the judges are invited. She had a clever idea to be able to "invite" the public to take part in a people's choice. No idea if she's going to give it a try though! :lol:

spicewine
09-20-2007, 08:07 PM
I have had plenty of dealings with the CHD!! I Worked in Columbia Restaurants for 13 years. They came up to our team at a Boone Co. Fair event about 3 years ago and I challenged them to enforce the City health Code on us at a " give away food contest " They promptly left and I never saw them again. I would have told them that if they were going to bust my balls than I want them to inspect every wedding and church picnic, Graduation, Boy Scout Jamboree--Etc. Needless to say they would back off!!

The shame is that Columbia could have so many festivals that generate thousands of dollars but are chased away by the Health Dept.

Funny!! They looked the other way at the Roots and Blues BBQ that drew 60,000 people!!

Money Talks and B. S Walks

Aimee
09-20-2007, 08:50 PM
Yeah, I agree. Couple of things I thought about, in order for it to be private you have to invite people to come. I thought about when posting our ad in the Tribune, put a little box that says personal invitation in order to attend you must cut this out and bring it with you. There is the invitation the health department is asking for in order for it to be private. The only PROBLEM...the health dpt informed me that they limit that to 100 invitations. How can they do that? I should be able to invite as many or as few people that I want.

The other thing we are going to have a problem with...is I opened my BIG mouth and pi$$ed them off last week. I asked the lady (who is brand new by the way) if they were so against a wings event...if we could have all the teams prepare a baked dish of some kind prior to coming to the event and we sell it there, i.e. a bake sale. (I am not kidding about this. Word for Word this is what she told me)..."well then I would have to inspect everyone's/each teams home and their kitchen where they prepared the food prior to bringing it to sell to the public." LOL!!!! I started to laugh and I said, "well then you will be inspecting homes in Florida and Nebraska, if you have that kind of time on your hands, you go right ahead!" Then the health inspector told me that was uncalled for. I said well what do you do with the teams that don't live here, she said that they could not participate in the baked goods event. I said well....now you are discriminating. CHD is discriminating against teams that don't live in our State. I don't think you can do that can you? Again she got pi$$ed and I thought it would probably be a good idea to end the conversation before it got worse.

That is where we have left it, and this wonderful lady who is brand new to the profession will be out at our contest bright and early Friday morning to make my life a living h_ _ _. As a matter of fact she is not going to issue our permit until she inspects everything first. It should be a lot of fun!!! I will need a few beers after I deal with her.....

Hey Aimee, I want a hug too! We'll cook wings for a hug...
The health dept was at BassPro last year giving me sh*t about not having a seperate handwashing sink. Duh!! We were outside cooking a contest. I dont have an exaust hood over my smoker either, snag me for that, I dare you! They cant make you follow heath codes if you're not selling your food to public.

Jeff_in_KC
09-20-2007, 09:16 PM
I bet the way around that for people's choice wings would be make the public buy tickets. They can't regulate tickets... unless they need to be sanitary tickets. :roll: Then the public stuffs tickets into jars with numbers on them that represent the wings that liked best that you GAVE to them. Not sure if that's a way to skate around or not...

River City Smokehouse
09-20-2007, 09:58 PM
I'm sorry but someone is being a prick! Sounds like they may have an interesting time ahead of themselves. And I haven't read anywhere in their rules that say there is a guest limit of 100 invites.
This is copied from BCHD website:
A permit from the Health Department is not required for:


An establishment that offers only prepackaged non-potentially hazardous foods.
A produce stand that offers only whole, uncut fruits and vegetables.
A kitchen in a private home if only food that is non-potentially hazardous is prepared for sale or service as part of a not-for profit event. Examples include a religious or non-profit organization having a bake sale.
A closed event with only invited guests. The public must not be able to attend without invitation. Examples of closed events include religious gatherings involving members of a church, wedding parties, family reunions, or company picnics.

It's a BBQ Brethren reunion. We also have some recruiting to do.

Aimee
09-21-2007, 08:55 AM
You guys are the best...I know you all have my back when I am dealing with this lady...by the way we are serving food to the public, we will have two vendors there, Florida Skin & Bones will be vending and Golden Nugget Popcorn. Golden Nugget is serving BREAKFAST in the morning on Saturday too! 25% of their proceeds go to BIA. So public will get BBQ, hotdogs, popcorn, and Breakfast...can't beat that.

These vendors have had to apply for a permit, get a business license and have insurance in place at the time of the event, a minimum of a 1,000,000.00 policy. I have told anyone that wants to vend go for it and by the way here is the phone number to call the health dpt. I am not dealing with them any further...

So since we will be serving food to the public they will have a watchful eye over all of us. That is why they will not issue our permit for the event until they inspect everything. Which includes, source of water, hoses, electric, extension cords and hoses running across the pavement (hazards if anyone trips) etc...I will be pulling my hair out by the time it is all said and done. I will be jumping through hoops on Friday trying to get our permit.

As far as paying for tickets...doesn't matter, we are still serving the public so the wings thing is out. I don't have enough time in the day as it is with the competition right under our noses, let alone deal with CHD on that issue.

The bottom line, the public will get to try BBQ and if that is not what they are there for (which I can't possibly imagine) we will still have many people out there to reach....and have support BIA.

I think I have everything worked out...at least in my mind whether or not the CHD will go for it is a different story.

Okay for everyone who is worried about the "new, new, new map" and the "old, new map" and the "not so old, not so new map" I will be emailing the final version Thursday morning at the latest. As you are aware we have added a few more teams, (good thing) (I think????) and we are making a couple of accommodations for those who had prize winning arguments as to their location. Sooooo we are changing the map for the final time, and I will get it to you as soon as I can. We are marking spots early this week (meaning tomorrow or Wednesday morning) and I will have your locations at that time.

The spaces will be 30x35 (give or take a few inches) those who paid extra will get 35x35 (give or take a few inches) and the smaller spaces will be 30 x 17 1/2 (give or take......) I think this is really what everyone wanted to know anyway. See you Friday. If you have questions call or email me. I'll be around.

Thanks for the advise, I can use all the advise I can get! I think I just might have to tie a few on, before and after...it won't hurt anything! By the time I have to deal with CHD I will be happy and won't give a rats _ _ _ what they say. That should be fun!

Good luck everyone! I would venture to guess that not many contests have ever had both the Royal Grand Champs competing in it the next week! Couple of tough contests this weekend to pretty much wrap up the season... Columbia and DeSoto. We've got the Open Reserve Champ and a couple of teams in Pellet Envy and Four Men and a Pig with a boatload of 2007 GC's between them.

WOW!! What A weekend. Almost brought back memories of the contest in Jefferson City last April (Flash back mod.). Skip's(Chick n Pig) awning got toasted in the wind.
I have been waiting to enter a contest since July and it was a lot of fun to finally get back. I have to extend my thanks:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap to Brewmaster (Nathan) for cooking with me. He puts out some AWESOME BBQ! If it weren't for his strong pork and chicken we would have never seen a top ten spot let alone a #4. I ate some of both of his turn-ins and they definitely deserved a higher scoring than what they got but that's the way the ball bounces in BBQ contests.
I have got to say Thanks to everyone who came by and said HI. It really is nice to be a part of the BBQ Brethren. I am looking forward to the next BIA contest and have a lot of practicing to do between now and then.
I have to give Jeff (JBrink01) and Fast Eddy a big thanks for their advice on cooking a brisket in my new cooker. I may be calling again soon so I can get these rib scores up.
Anybody get to see York out there cuttin a rug on the dance floor? What a sight!:razz::razz: He was dancin back wards and coming toward me and fell smack dab into my lapp. It was like being tackled at a NFL game!:biggrin:

Despite the weather, we had a great weekend....we did the sponsor dinner thing on Friday night, except I go missing....I'm next door at Chick'N'Pig's site eating some of the best prime rib I've ever had. Got the pleasure of making some new friends that I hope to see out at a competition again sometime...and missed making a few more because I just didn't get around to introduce myself (Critter Cookers, I owe you a handshake, a Howdy, and a beer)

Fitz.....we were all winners just by being able to see you out cooking again, you had a good weekend, and we'll all hate it when you really learn all the ins and outs of the pellet cooker.

To my wife Teresa.....we wouldn't be what we are without you...the sauce you make up is wonderful....and we turn our final product over to you (and John) to put in the box and give it that "pizazz"....you're an artist, and I thank you!:grin:

Congrats to all that walked this weekend....I was happy where we finished....and we'll continue to work to get that grand champion!

I wanted to tell Trail Boss, Team Q, and Jamey thanks so much I owe all of you one! All of these teams are amazing people, and I will never be able to thank you all enough for your support. Everyone kept a smile on my face, even when I was tired and soaking wet....I don't know how you all do it, but you are the absolute best of the best! I had a lot of fun, and enjoyed each one of you this weekend! I am proud to be a part of such a fine group of people. Again thank you so much for making this event what it is today! Great Grills O' Fire thank you for cooking up an unbelievable amount of meat for another organization that I am a part of. The kids at Coyote Hill will be doing back flips to get a chance to eat the best BBQ in the world. You guys are the best! I apprecitiate everyone tremendously. You all are top notch individuals! Again I am working on getting these pictures posted so that all can see the trophies and walks. Thanks again to everyone! I could never do any of this without you! All of you are some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of working with!
