Sorry but suggesting a BBQ contest for Valentines day would be on par with suggesting a WWE event followed by poker night with the guys.

Somebody must need a trophy real bad to go to that, at that time, under those conditions. I wouldn't suppose there would be many competitors going to that and V day seems to put a nail in it as well.

I take my Wife to all the comps, we are a team. So V Day is so no big deal. However, I live in the desert, so anything under 50 degrees feels like freezing to death.

I saw pictures of last years, more power to you guys.

LOL Since you put it that way you yanks are madmen, although I question my own sanity being at the Taylor once when it was 105 degrees and I was in front of a 300 degree pit. Hmm cold or heat?

I could have used that picture then. Look at that snow! Jesus.

p.s. El Presidente didn't make the mtg... laid up with a bad back I think.
And... I love the idea of a chocolate 5th category! How fun would that be?

I can not cook it, my circulation is for chit. Fingers and toes are freezing in this weather, I can not imagine Feb. Last March was a killer and I had 3 propane heaters.
So you can Freeze Off all your own Butts, I will be in the Judges Area.

I hear you Ray. I have Raynauds...I will make my decision to participate after I ring the bell for the Salvation Army at 3 PM on December 6th. Last year it took an hour to get the circulation back in my fingers so I could drive home. Having the "Twins" makes it tempting however. Looks like a good time....

Hi Michelle, Last year was not a KCBS Contest, it was only NEBS, so this is a first year contest. so 15 teams is the requirement. it will be a NEBS TOY once i give Leslie $ 50.00. Iron Chef Details will follow, but it will be real simple, one componet must be chocolate and it must fit in the box, very simple and stress free.... Happy New Year !!

Eric,

How close did you get to the number of teams you needed? (I suspect our check showed up after it was already called off.)
