Thanks... I've never seen an organized shot session before turn in time or even read about it before.

Looks like everyone enjoys it !!

Or east...

Vinny, I'm not sure where it started but a toast with a shot of Jack (or your preferred poison) has been a tradition at comps around here since I started attending comps three years ago.

If I am close enough to the action (usually meaning Ulcer Acres, Cancer Sucks or Smokin' Clones), I am in.

Today's 11:00 a.m shot is similar to the Reece's peanut butter cup. (peanut butter and chocolate).

Like many great things two irresistible forces were at play on a parallel course, which for unknown cause crossed at the perfect time.

In the corn fields of Iowa there was a secret lab working on perfecting a device which became know as a clonecycle. ( a block of ice with a bottle of gentleman jack frozen inside.)

At the same time in the official drinking pens in the mountains of the Rockies, the RMBBQA began gathering together at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate low and slow cooking and the art of bbq cuisine with a shot.

Soon the two converged and the official 11:00 a.m. shot was born. It is has become the essence of the KCBS pre turn in ceremony to celebrate this sport. At every official ceremony a toast is made to all the competitors and to the competition, and may my team be the last called to the stage.

So next Saturday at 11:00 a.m. I will be in the Rockies and I will drink the "official shot" which must have a toast to great competition to all of you.

I enjoy carrying on the tradition, and yes, it has to be frozen cold!

Traditionally there were shots a 7 (for Old # 7) and 11 (for 11 years old). Of course the Jack Daniels is for luck in getting to the Jack. So not just any whiskey will do.

Son of a ..... no wonder we never win. From now on I will do my part to keep this tradition alive. Hell I might tell everyone to face the north and drink to Scotty D.

I love the Smell of BBQ in the morning.
I knew I'd seen that hat somwhere before. It would have been funny if I could get Robert Duvalls picture here :icon_blush: (Appocolypse Now Mod)

As someone that has been involved with the Saturday morning shots I may say they are worth the time. As a man of the cloth I have been doing the morning blessing for two years or better. At the Jack last year we had a big crowd and at Taylorville,IL we had almost every team there. There is even one team that is a true believer to the point he brings a bottle of GJ to each contest we are at just to make sure I give a good blessing. Matter of fact Mark and Becky were involved at Mountain Grove, MO and I believe have seen the light.

Randy and Marla were my neighbors at the Royal last year. I felt it would of been downright rude to refuse their gracious offer of an 11am shot. I'm in,

Having been a follower of Reverend Twyford. I have been a believer from the beginning. Just the sacred Clonesicle in itself should be enough to make believers. Good job Randy, er I mean Reverend. One believer at a time. How come my bottles never get blessed and just consumed though?

While the Clonesicle will not be in attendance in Lake Placid, the morning shot of Gentleman will be. Chris you will be missed. But I believe I was able to give you your first taste of a Clonesicle last year at LP. No Philly Pigs either. Good thing I have Charlie and Richard...

there has been more of a trend starting this year of the 9:22 a.m. shot. It seems for most people, 7:30 or the 11:00 shot, had too much stuff going on. Seems to a lot of people's schedules of cooking, things fell on the :30 minute mark, or sometimes the :15 mark can be busy. So, the 9:22 shot was born. It fits in the middle of the original times, and the :22 after the hour should help with people being clear to do a shot.

More of a competitor freindly shot time.

I am in - I might even host one for our next contest at Glascow. All competitors are welcome. As Clone use to say, "You can not win unless you are in!"

The HoDeSparkleheads are taking a year hiatus.
The 'heads portion had a prior committment to cook Burlington which fell on this weekend due to leapyear...
The HoDe portion was not going to bear the cost to come up alone...
The Sparkle Plenty portion has to work...

So this Ho, is going to Plowboy it up that weekend. It's been a few weeks since I have donned my Plowboy shirt and hat, so I have been having withdrawals. Hopefully I bring him some luck :rolleyes: BTW - We will be in Burlington, KS doing battle.

This is a tradition out here in Utah also, only it happens at about midnite... you know when the bishop isn't looking! (a bishop is to a Mormon what a pastor is to a Baptist, just for the record)
