Spot 367 next to Plowboys and across from Ulcer Acres, could get interesting.

Thanks for the heads up, Clay.

366 - Right across from Early Bird BBQ (344) - AHA TORO!!!

I'll be there Thursday night so I can get both trailers in. We are bringing the camper and Pig Rig.

Wish we could have had 326 next to Hodedo's, Mokan, and Big Creek. Damnit, Andy.

Well, if any of you Open only teams need a bartender Friday night (that's code for - Dude can I hang out and crash in your area?), let me know. I think the lake is going to be a wee bit chilly Memorial Day weekend.

This isn't going to be another one of those, "I'll come help you.", and then you pull out at the last minute, kind of deals... is it? :cool:

Been there. Done that. :wink:

:oops: Possibly ... that's why I tried to carefully word it as Hey, can I come out and drink beer on Friday night with anyone else out there for the primary reason of having fun on Friday.

Trust me, I still feel like a tool for the short notice bail last year.:redface:

No...I am suppose to be in BBQ Alley. We are teaming up with Fritz's Smoked Meats as a vendor. I will have plenty of charcoal with me though for anyone wanting to buy some.

I called the GAB today and they said that it was their mistake.

Good deal Wizards! Maybe you'll teach me the way to cook a brisket midwest style because I totally expect to get slammed in that category....and probably others. We have some decent success in this area but are untested in KS......it will be interesting. I'll have a little NC beverage from the mountains with me too......

Mmmmm Mountain Dew!!!

If it is anything like Bayou Style had at Sugar Creek... I'm gonna stay away. That chit has the potential to sneak up and knock you down for the count.

Paydabill, we're a few spots down from ya in 848, and I had the exact same thoughts.....wow, it's going to be a 15 minute round trip for each turn in! Gonna have to take a cooler of adult beverages with me so I can sit and take a break!

paydabill
05-15-2008, 10:27 AM
I was just htinking of renting one of those segway things to do the turn in. We will have to have a pack, if one of us goes down from a heart attack the other has to go tell their team mate. OF coarse that is after we take the wallet.

We're just doing the Open, so when we get there will be based on the weather. If it's nice, we'll be there Friday afternoon, if there are storms in the forecast, we'll wait till Saturday morning. Feel free to stop by Saturday. We're having friends and family over in the evening for food and beverages.

So who all will be out there Thursday evening besides me, Andy and Todd? I should be there around 6pm at the latest. Dinner? Cards? Beer?

I have to get 15 slabs of spares and a couple of briskets on by 11pm or so Thursday for a catering gig I have to have delivered on Friday morning (also a couple pans of beans, slaw, buns, sauce, etc.)

SP
05-19-2008, 07:18 PM
I'll have the motorhome out there thursday sometime. Im in on whatever.

I have to edit that when Todd and Andy are involved whatever might be to loose of a word.

05-19-2008, 07:41 PM
I am new to the board, but I wanted to let you guys know that I will be out there with the team I am on - Dunn Up BBQ. I am also an IT guy who is on call and will have my laptop and air card, so if anybody needs internet access come on by 379 and ask for Matt/Bigdog. I haven't been BBQing long, so I can't contribute anything a long those lines, but I am good for a beer and some internet access.

Good luck to all!!

Cards and drinks sound good.

Not really on the way into town, but I like Snead's burnt ends. They call them brownies. They're at 171st and Holmes Rd. Google their name, you'll find them.
