Q for the Kids, Fairbanks, Indiana, June 6-7. This is a nice little 2nd year contest, very cook friendly. 20x40 space standard. Free Ice, T shirt, no charge for water and electricity. Pot luck dinner on Friday night. Right now they need two more teams to be a qualifier. They are already a state championship, KCBS sanctioned contest.
We'll be there. Hope to see some of our friends from the forum from Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, and Michigan. For those that have never competed this would be a great chance to dive in. Plenty of friendly teams willing to help out a new team.

Thanks Double D for the posting, we are really looking forward to our 2nd annual comp here in Fairbanks. We are located 20 miles south of Terre Haute in case anyone was wondering..... little bitty town with a community center that has TONS of room for a huge BBQ Competition. Reps said we could hold 100. Come early and stay late if you will be going on to Mt Vernon the following week you are welcome to leave your rig parked here and it will be safe as if it were parked at home. If you have any questions please contact us at blenges@earthlink.net
Hope to see you there!

So if I could make it, does this mean I would not be eligible???? :biggrin:

Sounds like a good cause and lots of fun... good luck to everyone.

Bill, does this mean your thinking about it? Would love to see you again after cooking next to you in Norfolk last year. I just thought that with the price of fuel, it might be a stretch to see you guys there but let me officially extend the invitation out to all 50 states, Washington D.C, all U.S. territories and all countries not on the evil doers list. Did I leave anyone out now?:-D

So which team is going to be #25 and make this event a qualifier with a chance at the Jack at the American Royal? You'll be treated like royalty for sure!

Again, very nice contest for a good cause, hope to see everyone there!

Sorry for the confusion... your quote of the states should have been better put... I think I removed to much....

Sure would be nice to be there, but I do have to work that weekend, and yes, with the price of fuel etc... that would be a pricey one..... would be good to see you and some of the others again.... maybe one day.

Any chance you might make it Kevin? One more team takes it down to just one needed! Kevin can you edit your list and add Rolling Ribs. They are a recent addition and that will bring the total to 23.

Thanks, Dallas

how are they splitting the prize money? My work calendar looks good and I got the OK if I promise to win enough to pay for the trip with winnings. Here I am thinking about doing back to back again. What an idiot.

Are you going to be there? That would be AWESOME! If so I will go ahead and list you on our website

It sounded like a committment to me. I hate to talk the guy into it. He's a great cook and competitor and will probably win the contest.

Ford, in my best Bobby Flay imitation, I challenge you to a throwdown!:-D

And as we all know on that show the guy throwing down the challenge almost always loses.

Should be interesting. FEC's vs. FEC's. Johnny Trigg and Rod Gray alum's trading jabs in friendly but spirited competition.

Is anyone else up to the challenge or are you just plain chicken (Marty McFly imitation)?:-D

Hope to see a few more Brethren there!

Not sure. It depends on getting the OK from work. Just cause my calendar is clean doesn't meant they want me to take time off. Need 3 approvals. I'll call you when I know for sure. Keep looking for a chicken cook for #25 as I'll be reall P.O.'d if it's not a qualifier. I'm already doing one of those the following weekend.

I dont think chicken cooks cut it anymore. I think to be a qualifier for the Jack and Royal each contestant has to cook all four categories.
Here is the information from the Jack Daniels Site:
Criteria Effective May 1, 2007:

* To be a qualifying contest for The 19th Annual Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue, the categories of pork, chicken, and beef brisket must be cooked.
Established contests that have a “state championship” proclamation must have a minimum of 25 competing teams.

Ford
06-01-2008, 05:48 PM
that's good news Randy. I always thought contests that did the chicken cook shouldn't count. Now if somebody plans to turn in 4 but has a problem with one then it should still count.

Hey Randy, your entry fee has already been paid from last year, did ya forget? Would love to see you and Marla there.

Sorry Double D, I have to go to San Francisco for an event so I will be out of town. Good luck to all Brethren heading out there.

Ford

Anybody out there want to be my runner on Saturday? I could sure use the help.

And come on somebody else - get in your application. I made it 24 so if you show up we're a qualifier.

Q For The Kids
06-02-2008, 09:15 PM
Thanks Ford for making it 24, I go on television at 6 in the morning so I will challenge some of the locals to come show us their skills, are Randy and Marla coming? He has a freebie from reserve grand last year.
See you soon

Did Mark Peebles/Bucky McOinkum's BBQ get signed up? He's planning on being there.

I can't be... my niece is graduating this weekend.

It went OK, I was nervous as all get out but did alright and I did remember to mention the challenge. We are also on the community calendar for both stations here in town and I have updated those to mention the challange. Who knows maybe someone will want to jump in and get their feet wet.
Hey Randy, are you afraid you will get your butt smoked? You did well last year, what's to say you won't go home with the Grand Championship this year. Are you in??

I'm sorry I won't be there... I really liked last year's comp. You all put on a really nice competition for your first year, and I like why you're doing this in the first place. We really felt like you went out of your way to care for the cooks.

The thing I'm not sorry about is missing the 90 degree heat! :) It looks like a hot weekend.

Hey, we have air conditioning now so you could always step into the building for some relief. You would be impressed with the many improvements we have been able to make to the old building with the $500,000.00 Grant we were working on when you were here last year. Rember the plywood floor in the gym, it's now beautiful white maple. We work hard up there and really enjoy seeing the end results in the programs and services we provide to the community.
See you next year!

I love it... Smack talking on the Smack Talk champ... If there are more than 18 teams, I don't think the Reverend would be afraid of just about anything... No reason for him to be afraid...

I'd keep an eye on the stickburners with all that white maple.

well that makes it a little tougher. Do you guys have a pool close to the site? :twisted::biggrin: If so, leave the gate open even though a certain Mt Vernon team is not showing up. Never know who might want to go for a dip at midnight.:-D:-D:-D:-D
