View Full Version : Roll Call. Inside 30 days. FBA Triple Crown Championship-Perry, FL--December 12-13, 2008

11-20-2008, 07:33 PM
Somehow, Brent and I "snuck" into this Invitational. :redface:


We "kinda did good" at Dothan, AL and then at Elba, AL and somehow made the cut.
Go figure!!!

"Flirtin' With Disaster" is gonna cook our hearts out and see what happens!
I even bought a small banner so the REPs and organizers would quit asking "Who are you" ? :lol:

We are looking forward to seeing all our friends there.
Lots of great Brethren teams coming.

UH--Rub---Not wishing you bad luck or anything, but I hear the FLU will be rampart that weekend for anyone living south of Lake City, FL. :lol:
Or, maybe your trailer tires will all be flat and your truck will not start! :lol:
Just kidding BRO--we would just be proud to walk just "one spot" before you at awards!
You Da Man!

Best of luck to you guys Tim, as well as everyone else!

11-20-2008, 10:54 PM
Me and my Pops will be there for our 1st comp... we can't wait!:-D

11-20-2008, 11:05 PM
Lol, thanks Tim. Truth be told, I got my first ever flu shot this year, so I'm covered 8-) I'm installing run-flat tires, so I will be there! :biggrin:

I think this one will be tons-o-fun, so come prepared. This is the one everyone's been looking forward to all year and I can't wait for it to happen. Also, seriously consider entering the sauce contest. It costs $20, but you could win a sweet, signed by Willie Nelson, guitar. I think this is the first time I've paid to enter a sauce category, but this one seems pretty cool.

Can't wait to see everyone...

11-20-2008, 11:59 PM
I'll see you all there.

I'll be there working for the FBA, Not Cooking:( too many bad arse teams making me skeerd:)

This is gonna be a good one boys.

11-21-2008, 12:50 PM

Pork Avenue BBQ will be there and my 19 year old daughters team Red Baron BBQ made the cut also with a good showing in Dothan (her first contest) and in Elba with a second place Ribs.
Can ya'll tell that Dad is proud? It cost me double since I had to pay for all of Her expenses.

We will make it there Friday around noon.

12-10-2008, 05:22 PM
Good luck Tim and to all y'all as well.
I am sure fun will be had.

12-10-2008, 05:55 PM
Big Papa's and Swamp Boys hosting a low country boil Friday night, come on by.

Big Papa's and Swamp Boys hosting a low country boil Friday night, come on by.

That is gonna fit in perfectly with the FARKIN cold weather.
We are bringing a couple of loaves of crusty bread to soak up the juices.

Gonna be the "frostiest" event ever for us.
But, FUN-FUN-FUN, we are sure.

Congrats Kevin n Clara on the win. And to cracker on the sauce. Man those are some awesome awards!

It took five of us to get the Grand out of the truck...
The prize pool was awsome.

This has been a very cool addition to the FBA season, and it culminated with a contest that GREAT!

A big congratulations to Kevin and Clara, as well as Sam and Diane. Lot's of teams walked the stage, and had plenty of opportunities to walk. The FBA paid down 10 places in each category, and 10 places overall. 50 chances to hear your name! A BIG congrats to warfrat on taking GC in the back yard, in his first ever bbq contest. Great job Damon!

And last but not least, thanks to Cracker for being the "organizer" for the FBA. You did a great job Jimmy, everyone seemed very pleased.

12-16-2008, 06:27 PM
A great event, to say the least!

Jimmy did a super organizing job--thanks big guy!

Congrats to all who walked in that field.
Kevin and Clara were at the top of their game!!!

It was not our day, but there is always next year :oops:


12-16-2008, 09:55 PM
Thanks Rub! I had a great time...not only cooking, but getting to meet everyone as well. I surely couldn't have finished where I did though without that awesome Stump's GF-223 I bought through you!:wink: I guess I'm hooked now so I'll probably cook several contests next year so I can donate to ya'll "pros"! :lol: Gotta start somewhere though... I'll see you Jan.3, till then congrats to everyone who walked @ the TC! I hope ya'll have a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year!

12-17-2008, 10:25 AM
Props to Rub, Bobby, Bubba, Myron & Dobie, Sam & Diane and all our other friends who made the stage in Perry! One of these days we're going to have to try one of those FBA shows if a close one would only fit into our schedule...

Congratulations from Gowan, Johnny & Warren.
