Yeah, I got a confirmation on it but haven't heard anything else regarding number of teams, etc. It is a Friday/Saturday contest which is nice and a short drive from Long Island.

I must have skimmed over it. Thanks! I added the location and dates to the title.

I'd love to come out and help but we have a wedding to go to on that weekend. We were thinking about cooking at the Taste of Grand Rapids in Michigan but can't do that, either.

Smoke, what kind of confirmation did you get? I got a letter which was more of a receipt a few weeks ago but nothing after that.

I was going but I have surgery scheduled for the 25th. I got some nasty mole things on me that came back from the lab not so good. I may try to make the rounds on Sat.

Sorry to hear about the surgery. I could use a hand with turn-ins if all goes well and you want to come by Saturday. We can be SmokeNdaEyes.:biggrin:

They are allowing teams to vend, though not sure how many actually will. I'm flying solo so opted not to. Looking forward to meeting some new folks Friday! Should be there by 1pm or so.

Great Job Clint doing it by yourself, I had a whole squad and still couldn't beat you. Conrats to Tom and Michelle on there RGC. Congrats to all that got calls. I think this contest has some great potential to be a top one in the northeast, as they did a great job for a first year contest.

What the hell did I do? Lo & Slo came within inches of GC, Fat Angel won brisket, RibsWithin did whatever they do, and so on... I was just pleased to finally do another KCBS contest and not embarass myself.

As long as it's not the same weekend as Harpoon next year, I would suggest everyone come down to Monmouth County and support a contest with real potential (just hide your beer well and don't ask cops for directions!)...

You don't have to hide your beer at Harpoon, if you do they will throw you out and ban you for life

RUB IT - SMOKE IT - PULL IT!
While entertaining a visit from the county Mounties, one asked what I do for a living.

I replied: “I’m a butthole streacher.”

He was curious as to what that was.

I explained: First you stick one finger in the butthole, then you stick one from the other hand and pull apart until you can fit the second finger in. Then you keep stretching until you can get both hands in. Then you keep stretching to 12 inches, and stretching to 3 feet, and stretching until you have a 6 foot opening.

Officer: “Then what in the world do you do with a 6 foot butthole.”

Me: “You bring it to a cooking competition to give out fines to the cooks for drinking beer!”

Did any team member actually get a ticket? Could you drink openly if it was in a cup?
