Great Lakes BBQ & Feed Co will be there. And I have a surprise :eek::eek::eek:

And I have some good cigars in the humidor box today including my birthday cigar for next week. Amazing how much you can pay for a cigar.

Got ribs and chicken ready, briskets aging but small ones this time and we'll pick up the butts just before. There's no Harley for GC so I'll be bringing the golf cart for visiting. Oh and maybe I'll be doing my traditional BBQ breakfast for those in attendance. I have the Strata already in the freezer so when Carol buys the butts she can also see if there any .......

Anybody got plans for dinner Friday night? I'm thinking I can cruise over to Shigs and steal something.

I wonder if I can get the Lake's to let me out of Shannon and go to this one?

Nah, I'll go to Shannon where the competition is for the weekend...

last I heard was it was "on the Governors desk" for signature. Whatever that means. So maybe they will and maybe they won't and they could get it on the morning of the 11th even.

Well Walt here's the thing, if you come to Goshen you get cigars and tendderloin. If you go to Shannon you get the field of dreams. Wish they were on different weekends but a couple of hundred miles each way makes a difference.

As of this morning there are 12 paid and they are still waiting to hear from the Gov. Guess he doesn't understand the importance this is to some key voters.:biggrin:

Ford, have a great 39th Birthday!!!

Thanks Walt. Party starts for me Thursday when I get home and should go all weekend. I have a get ready for competition to do list a mile long and the most important thing on it is take the Harley to the Dealer for a checkup and price check. Hopefully that's the only time when I won't have a cold one in my hand. Who knows what crazy things I might do.

If you guys are around this weekend and have some free time give us a call and maybe you can come over. Monte Cristo White labels available.

I see this has been updated to a state championship with the Gov's proclamation.

Ford

So Randy and Podge. Are we going to see you in Goshen? Or maybe I should say Marla and Podge.:biggrin:

I did a google maps on the main and madison intersection where Nick says the contest is being held. Does anybody know where we'll actually setup? Looks like a couple of big parking lots there or is this a street fair kind of thing. I'm thinking of bringing the mobility scooter rather than the golf cart. May be easier to get around.

Looks like it will be a warm one and for here we have T storms so expect we could get a cooling shower. Last time I went to IN for a contest we had a cooling shower lasted all night and made some new lakes. If it happens again I'm giving up on that State.:roll:

Ford, nice to meet you. Had a great time, except for the weather. Have to work on my chicken still(7th), and I didn't trust the "force" on the brisket, and the scores showed it. Real happy with the pork(2nd) and the ribs(3rd). Overall a 7th, not bad for the second time out. Meet a lot of good people, parked on Michigan's "Murderers Row" All Day Smoke, Pork of The North, and Great Lakes BBQ& Feed. See ya in MT. Morris.:-P

pics and audio here. Don't believe anything the Shigs say. They were being recorded at midnight Friday and we all know what that means.
