I knew I could count on someone! Cooking buy myself, probably not the best time to make bets! Ja,Ja,Ja

I am very interested in this contest. Are there any other categories besides ground hog? Are the ground hogs provided or do you have to bring your own? I can bring extras if you need them as I have several living under the sheds in my back yard. I hope this isn't a KCBS contest because I usually parboil them for a while before I throw them on the smoker. Let me know.

Lager,

Juggy

NotleyQue
01-15-2009, 11:03 PM
Salami, Cheddar cheese and crackers....all inspired by the Battle of Hoth in Empire Strikes Back.

There is my potluck entry.

Notley Ques app went in just last week. We will be there.

Bentley
01-16-2009, 02:54 PM
The contest is 3 weeks form today. Teams entered:
Booth #1...Road Kill BBQ Team
Booth #2...Kyle Emery
Booth #3...Thom Emery
Booth #4...Smokin Yankees BBQ
Booth #5...Here's the Rub
Booth #6...Burnt by the Best
Booth #7...Tex A Que
Booth #8...When Pigs Fly BBQ
Booth #9...FunTime BBQ
Booth #10..Four-Q BBQ
Booth #11..Rusty Barrell BBQ
Booth #12..Rib Tickler BBQ
Booth #13..The BBQ Train
Booth #14..John Bracamonte
Booth #15..Notley Que BBQ
Booth #16..Slap Yo' Daddy BBQ

Brethren in Red are game for sidebet. I do not think any of the other teams besides Thom are Brethren & I guess he is doing side beth with Kyle. The contest says they only have room for 20 BBQ teams, so 4 more is max anyway.

Should the 3 of us wait till 1-30-09 and see if any other brethren teams sign up? I dont think there are any others...:eusa_clap We can think about what the bet should be...The two losers spilt the cost? What say ye?

Bigmista
01-16-2009, 03:36 PM
1 Meat
Brisket
Highest place wins
Two losers split the cost of dinner (anything but bbq) for the winner before the ride home.

How's that sound?

1 meat is for Panseys. Total score...the rest of the team my be coming now and they do not hang after contests. Will know in a week, have some alternet plans or I can bow out.

total score works for me as well.

Bentley
01-16-2009, 11:15 PM
K, I posted that in a rush and it seems very Thomesque as I re-read it!

The rest of my team may now be cooking with me. We all travel together, so if they do come they will not want to stick around after the contest. If I am by myself, dinner is fine. I believe Pansey is spelled Wuss...I would rather it be over all, as I believe my overall talents will rise like cream, but that is negotiable. How soon you both forget your utter humiliation at Wishland? If my team mates end up showing up and you and Gary want to do the dinner thing, I can as always graciously bow out and spank you both at Wishland in May! :twisted:

Bent, Neil:

Im not planning on hanging around after awards for any length of time, so I dont know how the dinner thing will work.

Lets make it a 20spot like wishland last year. Total score winner takes all.

Actually that might make a great prize. I guess not for Bentley though.

Cash is such a well, impersonal bet. Brian has given me a good idea, how about something we like or make? I like to think I make pretty good sausage, or I could probably get someone to make a pie. How about I put up 5 lbs of homemade sausage, I can pipe it or make it bulk for the winner.

I liked the coffee you brought to Wishland last year, just a suggestion for you. I am sure Neil can come up with something. How does that sound? We all bring our stuff and the winner takes home the other two's loot? Or we can see who wins and then pay up at the next contest? Wishland.

Just some suggestions...

Bigmista
01-19-2009, 12:47 PM
I won't be at Wishland. I'd be happy make something for the winner. Perhaps a banana pudding? A container of Gumbo?

Bentley

Nice fella but I cant find his phone #. One of you guys look him up and if you dont mind ask him to get in touch with me. He is a member here but hasnt been on for a while.
