Hi we are coming all the way down from Cleveland, Ohio for this contest.

I'm actually picking up a new BBQ pit from Jamie Geer that week and the contest was on the way home so I thought I'd christen the pit at Smoke On The Water.

Probably not the brightest idea to cook for the first time on a new cooker against such great competition but like I said its on the way and I do like cooking in Big Contests. Not too many bigger than this one.

I look forward to meeting everyone.

Greg,

I've never pulled a trailer thru there but it's the way I always travel between Ft. Smith and Hot Springs. Can't think of anything more trailer friendly that isn't a Bunch of extra miles.

I haven't received a judge's packet yet but from what I remember in the email, it said it wouldn't be mailed out until the 10th. That way people had until then to cancel.

I really look forward to this event though. We went to Smoke on the Water last Sept (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=31719) in Pine Bluff and let me tell you, the Cates family is a first class act and some of the nicest people you'll meet. We had a great time and we finally got to meet some of the brethren as well. It was a good time, that's for sure.

And while I don't want to turn this into a judging post, with all the recent postings about judges and certified vs noncertified and experienced vs inexperienced, I can tell you what I expect as far as the judging goes over there. Last year, I think there were actually 108 teams there (although I had heard 120). There were 134 judges available and only 10 of those were uncertified. We played musical chairs for at least 30 minutes getting all the tables equaled out as far as experience. All the uncertified judges were sent to different tables along with a master judge. All those with less than 5 comps (I can't remember how many exactly) also got dispersed equally to different tables. I had 5 at the time so I got to stay where I was. But I don't know how you could have made it any more fair. Not only that but I don't remember seeing any table captains doing double duty either as a judge. The only change I would expect is I would just about bet you that there will be all certified judges over there this year.

For those of you competing over there, just thought you might want to know that.

Check your e-mails. I just got this one.
Your cook team packages will be sent out Thursday. It will include your parking pass, schedule of events, map and other useful information.


Please note that registration fees must be received before the event. No fees will be collected on site and teams that have not paid will not be allowed to compete.


Ice is available on site and will be delivered twice daily.


The judges tent is centrally located within the cooks area, so no team will have more than 75 yards to travel for turn in. We have handicapped areas close to turn in for those who requested it.


The airport has made a decision to create 2 water stations instead of trying to run water hoses to all the competitors. If you have an RV or camper, please fill up your water tank for convenience.


There will be plenty of electricity but bring enough extension cord just in case you need it.


For teams arriving before check in on Friday, September 19, there are many places to camp or stay in Hot Springs National Park. Rates are very reasonable at all locations and there is a Walmart store at 1601 Albert Pike Road (501) 624-2498 which is less than a quarter mile from the airport for the RV travelers. Our host hotel is Best Western Stagecoach Inn at 2520 Central Avenue Hot Springs, AR 71901 phone # 501-624-2531. They have a large secured parking area ready to accommodate grills and trailers.


Look forward to seeing everybody and good luck to all! For directions or more information visit smokeonthewaterbbq.com (http://smokeonthewaterbbq.com/) or hotsprings.org (http://hotsprings.org/)

Not to hijack the thread but like Dallas says, you do need to get your butt up here and cook S'ville this weekend Dale. They need more teams to qualify so when I win it, I'll have a bung in the Jack draw next year. :razz:

"Fred, we'll be coming down US71 to Van Buren-Ft.Smith. Would our best route from there be to continue on 71 South to 270 East on in to Hot Springs? (towing our 26ft trailer)."

I use I-40 to Little Rock, I-430 to I-30 to Hot Springs. Continuing on 71 is shorter, but 270 is hilly. I opt for the straight and realitive level of the Interstate whether I'm pulling the trailer or not. If you are coming through at night, don't even think about 270. Even in the daytime, God help you if you get behind a log truck.

Fred,

Thanks, I was going to ask you and I worried about my truck/trailer on those hills, figure a little extra time on the Interstate.

I've asked if we can get next to you, and since we're staying in HS for the week, Sat should be a fun time (as long as we don't have the storms like we did from Pine Bluff).

Then we're doing Bikers, Blues and BBQ the next week in Fayetteville.

I cant make it. In fact Owensboro will most likely be my last until I get some comfort. I cant do it with a trailer anymore. I need showers, heat and air, and locks on the door to keep drunks out.
I have something in the works that will make my comp days more comfortable.
Good luck guys!

Staying the week after. Susan told us about Paul's class after I'd already sent in the entry for Fayetteville or we'd be going there.

So Sat night, we party!!! (since one of us will win, right) :icon_cool

Ok, this thread needs to remain on Page 1. This is one of the biggest comps of the year. Looks like close to 100 teams will compete. I just got into Dallas today. We'll be heading over to Jamie Geer's house tomorrow to season the new pit. We'll be heading to Hot Springs on Thursday. This will be my first time at this contest and I'm betting that I'm the only team from Ohio here. Is anyone doing a potluck type of dinner with other teams. I'd be interesting in participating if there is one!

Looking forward to meeting everyone on Friday!

Congratulations again Rod on the GC, awesome job! Also congrats to all our other friends called to the stage!
It was, as expected, a premier event drawing 91 teams from many states. And with the huge payout, many of the best teams in the land were there.

With the free admission to the public and the great job of advertising the event by organizer Ronnie Cates of not only the contest, but the hot air balloons, the car show, the huge stage and concerts both nights, and the great weather; the public attendance was huge!

Good friends, good times, and a great contest!

All I can say is Wow, What a Contest! It was an honor to cook amidst all those great cookers. Thanks to all the Brethren that stopped by to chat and see the new pit. She cooked very well. I've got a little bit of a learning curve yet with the pit but I think I've got it figured out for the most part.

Congratulations to all the Brethren that got their names called on Saturday. These guys are truly the best of the best!

This weekend was a blast. Well, other than that pork entry that was turned in but we won't talk about that here. It was great to see a lot of my Brethren (and Sistern) this weekend and congrats to all of those that got calls.

Dallas, it was good to meet you and Donna. Sorry we showed up while you were prepping but it was so nice of you to take the time to show us the pit and talk for a bit. I am still in awe over that pit and love the logo.

Kim and Andy....thanks for helping me to see the light and adding "toy hauler" to my list of Father's Day gifts :mrgreen:. Seriously, it was great to finally meet ya'll and thank you for the hospitality Friday and Saturday afternoon. Kim, thanks so much for the garnish tip and Andy, I'm so glad you found your azz when ya'll got that pork call.

Wayne, it was nice to finally put a face with a name. Sorry we interrupted your nap, brother. But be honest, telling tales over a couple of brews beats the heck out of sleep, now doesn't it? Between you, Andy, Jeff and Justin, ya'll had me in tears with your jokes and stories.

Rodger....I'll never forget walking up to your site in my brethren shirt and you recognizing it right off the bat and making us feel at home. It was good to meet you and your brother and thanks for the Shiners too!

And finally, Jeff and Stacy.....we sure didn't expect you to be there but were so glad to see you again. It was like Pine Bluff all over. Ya'll are always a blast to hang with. I have the chicken tips burned in my memory now and will put them to use soon.

Looking forward to seeing all of ya'll next year in either Little Rock in the spring or Hot Springs in the fall.

I'm just wondering, can a competition count as a mini-bash??

A huge congrats to all of the brothers that got to take that walk at this Allstars of BBQ contest.


Wayne, it was nice to finally put a face with a name. Sorry we interrupted your nap, brother. But be honest, telling tales over a couple of brews beats the heck out of sleep, now doesn't it? Between you, Andy, Jeff and Justin, ya'll had me in tears with your jokes and stories.



Richie it was an honor to meet you brother - besides who needs a nap at a BBQ contest

Rodger - is was great to meet you as well, you were a great neighbor - thanks for the beer, stories and especially for the coffee on Sunday morning before we left.

Double D - nice meeting you and your new cooker...very nice.

There were several other brothers (1moreford was one) that I met that I can't remember right now - it was good to see everyone.

Dustaway - good seeing you again and don't forget you knives when you come up to the royal...see you in a couple of weeks.

This weekend was a blast. Well, other than that pork entry that was turned in but we won't talk about that here. It was great to see a lot of my Brethren (and Sistern) this weekend and congrats to all of those that got calls.

One note -- Wayne ended up delaying that nap until about 10:00p on Sat. night. Considering we left at 1am to get there.... He was up for over 40 hrs straight!!! Now that is serious BBQ Comp skills there, bro. I always have a blast cooking with Wayne, and this time was no different. I'm sure glad he and the Mokan Boys came together to cook several years back. It's made for some great stories over the years.

Congrats to all the Brethren who competed here and especially to those of you who received a call. It was an excellent contest.

Thank you to Dallas of Double D's for the invite to hang out with you and Cliff. I learned a lot from y'all.

It was a great pleasure to meet everyone and associate faces with the names I've seen on the forum these years. There were a few folks I didn't manage to look up. Hope to find you another time somewhere else.

Glad to see everyone checking in and posting safe and sound from the trip.
