are you talking brethren or overall? I'm out in Clive. I know Dave (Rookie 48) is in Des Moines, Pat is in Des Moines, Watertower I think is Ankeny, Spanky's Meat Mafia is from Norwalk I think. Then you got BBQ Mayor and Shotgun outside of the city. I know I am probably missing some more.

I'm up in Ankeny. DM Don is also here in Ankeny. Iamuzzyhunter is up in Harlan. I know there is another guy in Estherville, but I can't remember his username.

Although I don't know everyone on the list, but everyone that I've met is really good people and I'm sure the one's that I haven't met are good people also. Always good to have another Iowan on board.

Check out the Iowa BBQ society's website. http://iabbq.org/index.php The annual meeting and dinner is next month in Ames. It is a good opportunity to meet other members in Iowa. I'll bet there is 20-25 competative teams within 45mins of Des Moines. Including the Reserve Grand Champ for last years Jack.

Don, I have no idea how I forgot to add you to this list, considering I was in Sam's Club today and didn't see you.

I was there on Wed night. Picked up a really nice brisket and I don't even have any plans to cook in the near future. I just couldn't pass it up.

Last BBQ Society meeting i was at was November in Nevada and there were probably 30-40 people there.
If you get a chance, head out to Hawgeyes in Ankeny. They are in TNT Landscaping, not too far from DMACC. They carry a great supply of rubs, woods and sauces (many from this forum like Plowboys are sold there).

There are some good contest within an hour of Des Moines
