Any team within driving distance should seriously check this one out. It's the first leg of the Triple Crown leg of GA. You qualify and you are 1 of 30 teams max cooking for $20,000 in prize money, PLUS smokers, BBQ Gurus, etc. This is probably one of the best bbq competition series out there, bar none. Questions? Ask me or go to the FBA web site. And the Thomaston venue itself is one of the best in GA. Great live music, food, location, and fun. Contact them ASAP to secure your spot.

Hey Brothers!
I stopped by the Smoke On the Water site this weekend and the guys were getting ready for the contest...mowing grass, puttin out pine straw around the shrubs, laying out the cook team sites.
These guys have been busting their tails getting ready for the event.
I hope all can make it to Thomaston next weekend.

Hey guys,
FYI...We had a chit load of rain last night. The bbq area is a grassy field and very soft right now. Just don't get stuck in the mud.
I'll be there friday morning for sure. Might drop by Thursday night for a cocktail and drop off some equipment.
Drive safely.

What a great weekend! Despite the MUD!
The SOTW crew did one hell of a job making the best of a not so great situation. I hope everyone had as much fun as I did.
Congrats to all that walked!
