The Royal everyone should do it more than once!

Back home after a kick arse weekend.
I had a blast! I met so many brethren I was getting faces, names, log in names all mixed up. I meet so many cool people. I have A.D.D. and it’s compounded with Ezra Brooks so I’m drawing blanks trying to match up names and faces now.

Team Q is awesome Jay (Spice), Steve, Brian (Bags) & John (Fred bird) Thanks for the awesome hospitality. Let me keep you all straight on these guys (They are the best you can get) Thanks brothers.

It was cool to meet Dust Away because the Sasquatch comments are right on. (Dust your new call sign is “Squatch”) it was cool to meet you bro.

I don’t know where to go find the pics but I think an album should be started for 2008 Royal Pics. It would be great to see the pic in front of Phil’s trailer and someone smarter than me put names and log-in names with the faces.

I need to find the brother that hooked me up with the best pig candy I’ve ever had. It was so hot it burned my face off but I kept eating it because it was soooooo good.

Brethren Brothers Thanks for the good time….

That was BigDog's "Slow Burn" pig candy. I think we ate about a 1/2 lb of it when it was fresh off the cooker.:grin::biggrin:

It was in the cooker when I showed up on his doorstep. A standard recipe is 1/8 tsp cayenne:1/2 cup Brown sugar.... I think his is more like 4 TBSP:1/2 Cup, based on his description of how he put it together.:twisted: It rocks!!

I like Big Dog's meat over Neil's nuts. But BD's meat does burn, but in a good way......

What is the deal behind the 9:22 shot?

What is the deal behind the 9:22 shot?

We started it here in the Midwest. It is done with a Clonesicle, orginally we did them at 8:30 and 11:00 on Saturdays of a contest. It was turning into a conflict with the 11:00 shot, so it was consolidated into a 9:22 shot. Usually, you will see Reverend Twyford officiating at these services. At larger one's you will have over 50 people in attendance.

Phew, Scottie, Rev, sounds like you guys need to start sharing the secret handshakes with those who do not/have not gotten to partake in the events....

Clonsicle....a beautifully hand crafted, carefully handcrafted ice bath surrounding either a bottle of Jack, or, eck:icon_sick Jim, served EXTRA iced cold....hellova moring wake up call....

A Clonesicle is a bottle of Gentleman Jack, frozen in a block of ice. It turns it into a syruppy consistency... Real good and will give yourself a brain freeze if you drink too many... :roll:

Here is a picture of Darren "Clone" Warth doing the first one. I made it for him as a thank you for some things he did for me... Never thinkiing it would become the rage in the Midwest. I've tried to spread good will amongst BBQr's through the US bringing my Clonesicle to the masses...

Darren and the Reverend don't mess around. I dropped a bottle off and Darren had it in the freezer in less than 30 seconds after it touched the Revs hands.:mrgreen:

You notice that Clone grabbed it away from the Reverend? Randy might of started a sermon right then and there....

Yeah, those boys have extra large freezers... (All I have is a little, iddy biddy RV freezer... It will fit a Clonesicle though...) :shock: Last year at the Royal, I think Clone must of had 10 bottles in his freezer. I should of taken a picture...

I can't speak for Phil and his knowledge of the clonesicle, or if he partakes, but I do know that Phil sure mixes up a nice Cabo shot with lime. He fixed a round for T and myself and a few others on Thursday evening....we toasted KCQuer.......
I'd have to say I like both, the clonesicle and the Cabo shot!

The Royal Invitational was a contest that has been on my "to do" list since I began competing. I finally earned my way there and made the 21 hour drive out this year. I've got to say, it was a great experience! I met so many people and had a fantastic time. I remember thinking at one point that it was too bad the contests had to get in the way of the socializing 8-) If it was closer to home, I'd for sure go back.

Everybody I met was really cool and I wish there was more time to sit and shoot the sheet. Jay, the license plate is too cool and will be mounted tomorrow on my trailer. Which by the way, blew a set of bearings on the way home while in KY. That sucked, but I lucked out and was able to be on the road again 3 hours and $200 later. :icon_pissed

Anyway, thanks everyone for the great time, I really enjoyed myself.

Scottie or Reverend Randy,
As our resident clonesicle experts, I need an official ruling ... Are clonesicles solely for competitions are is it acceptable to share with fellow BBQ'rs at Brethren Bashes?

I don't want to be called for illegal proceedure if I take a few to the Midwest Bash.

Thanks in advance,
Brother Bobby

Not just for BBQ comps.... As I have been known to have a swill on Thursday nights too... Which is officially before a contest begins... :roll:

It's all about bringing people together and share a toast. So of course it is legal. Share the love.
