Absolutely Ray. My season has sorta been turned upside down, as we had a RIF last week. I'd like to take a few days, but that may change with work.

Competition BBQ Comes to Maine
http://origin.ih.constantcontact.com/fs062/1102463560633/img/3.jpg?a=1102541073479 The Raitt Homestead Farm Museum will host the "Mainely Grillin' & Chillin' Country BBQ State Competition" in conjunction with the 2009 Celebrate MAINE Festival August 8-9 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

The contest will attract competition-level BBQ teams from throughout the region and across the country. It has been sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102541073479&s=259&e=001NFOKHbzwka6NbS-I5PvitpRj2R2oFgnaDb-DmwAjHKbIj5Osh19PDzKfY8Z7jO27PA0HTXucfwaLBjPvbzKWO sKnB7_eJw14s0E-ItT_OCQ=), the New England Barbecue Society (http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102541073479&s=259&e=001NFOKHbzwka4JJMutSNBXz9nbQmwpq9Kht9cbHtPTNj81x WLNZ7FHVJNI4o4ZqnNhz4gJ0vYK4_taDrVB_kw4uqx__ZcsWA4 K4MdtblnQOhQ=) and has been proclaimed the "Official State of Maine BBQ Competition" by Gov. John Baldacci. The Grand Champion will qualify for the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational in Lynchburg, Tennessee, and the American Royal Invitational in Kansas City, Missouri.

"This really is a sport for anyone," said Carolyn Wells, executive director of the Kansas City Barbeque Society. "It reinforces the positive aspects of practice and perseverance - and it produces the ultimate comfort food. We're thrilled to add Maine to our Sanctioned Contest Network and I know Mainers can hold their BBQ up against anybody's!"

Professional barbeque competitions, often featured on the Food Network, have gained widespread popularity. Phil Rizzardi, founder of the BBQ Brethren, hosts an online forum, www.bbqbrethren.com (http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102541073479&s=259&e=001NFOKHbzwka6bpjsT5bBiUkpxMiIUJA9SJFew-NtKeONjUjG1Nf1fFEtbRayXhwBfJTr4k6TdAxBgyKbHImDyGE_ 6TEHv3vXh8p10ao6APKV1xzgKt4Ddjw==), with over 7,300 members from 102 countries. "The competition BBQ circuit in New England has just about quadrupled in the past five years," he said.

A major reason for the popularity of this sport is the camaraderie of BBQ aficionados. "As long as you have passion, love and a bit cooking expertise, you will find BBQ enthusiasts who are interested in mentoring you. We're all invested in promoting BBQ at the grassroots," said Alex Caisse, NEBS Maine representative and owner of Buck's Naked BBQ (http://rs6.net/tn.jsp?et=1102541073479&s=259&e=001NFOKHbzwka4CTR1mJsdiRwmyiZ56lmFmjx66hCvru5Pl3 GaS0SpI1cEWzYN6J1wu_OgWUAV_Ay4ZrMSRmHdgWcHNY9cU6Nd isdHovmwPtCNRpe_EJNXo7Q==) in Freeport.
