Yes Nelsonville is in the play for 2009. I know that is almost unheard of that Nelsonville posts information this early, but remember we are under new management.

We are still pulling our forms and applications together, and waiting for our final KCBS Sanctioning but we wanted to get some basic information out to The BBQ Brethren.

The 2009 competition will be held on October 16 and 17 in beautiful downtown Nelsonville. Information is available at the competition website: http://www.nelsonvillefd.org/ohiobbq.htm (http://www.nelsonvillefd.org/ohiobbq.htm)

Everyone’s participation last was greatly appreciated and we hope to continue the rebuilding this year. If you are planning on coming to Nelsonville and we will mark you down and get you the paperwork as soon as it is available.

Looking forward to another great year in 2009.

Great to hear from you Rob. I think this years cook's meeting will be in the Mine Tavern so Roger should be around.

Now Now now is there a tavern in town... I resemble that remark. What had happen was a elderly gentleman ask if I could hold his seat for him and I did. I will say one thing that sure was a long drive home that night.
Rob I am hoping to be able to make it. And yes STICK BURNERS RULE

As you can tell Dan is also a stick burner along with Rob

I love the competition, but I am partial to this one since I live in Nelsonville. We had some organizer and sponsor problems over the past few years, but the chamber of commerce stepped up in 2008 and saved the competition.

The competition was moved to the downtown area in 2008 and it worked well. The teams had room and utilities were available. It is a great competition to close out your year with.

Hows the weather that time of year? Is this a state championship?

is a state championship, well, has been in the past, weather has a little chill in the air....the community came out and supported, and it was a very friendly contest.....I had even set up a barter system with the pizza place, got some pizza in exchange for BBQ, and got to use their sinks inside to wash up supplies.....heck, close out season?....laughing, I still had Shelby, NC after I left Nelsonville.....
Roger, ouch, grabbed the bestest spot that there was....well, unless you are set up right in front of the bar.....but, was great eye candy there....

The area around it is the Hocking Hills area ...Hocking valley. The most beautiful spot in Ohio. Go to www.hockinghills.com (http://www.hockinghills.com) to see all there is out there. Nelsonville is like 20 min. away. The fall the leaves are changing good time to be a STICKBURNER and have your own bar stool.

I was set up a comfortable distance away from the bar and still managed to get hammered and let my smoker get to Chernobyl temps (over 400 by the time Jim and I got back to the site)...needless to say, THE BAR IS EVIL!!! (Cant wait to get back)

It is a good comp, we had alot of fun there and the teams were all great

I don't think we will b e able to keep Roger out of the tavern. I believe that "The Mine Tavern" is the official BBQ Team meeting place for 2009. Rocky is really commited to making the competition work.

Just found out a friend of mine who lives in Hocking has a girlfriend thats works at the bar there so I already have a bar stool reserved. 9:22 shots at bar???? Jim said he would buy.

its longer than an hour and half, I don't exactly remember how long it took us last year, but seems like it was around two or two and half hours.

Nelsonville has 11 teams as 9/1/09 so there is plenty of room for more people. There were some problems with a $25 late entry fee but that has been done away with. We still have plenty of space and lots of things to keep you and your team and family busy!!!

Pigman,

Count me in, I'll be there. I'll take Bear's too since he don't drink.

We will make sure we put you by the beauty salon, last year they were complaining about some "dirty old man" who kept staring and asking them to raise their hands if they liked BBQ. I figure they will be safe with you there, right?:lol:

See you in a few weeks.

Website has 15 teams listed as of the last update on Sept. 6th. We are still hoping for a lot more teams to come fill up the Public Square with lots of great smoke.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks. And for those who were there last year, Bear and I will have the camp fire going again, so feel free to stop by and get warm.

Entry form sent out....come on folks.....a prize amount like this does not happen in Ohio.....and they have worked their tails off to get it back on the map.......glad to see some teams that have not been in the past few years.......looking forward to it....I would say that it looks like it will end up being a qualifier at the least....

I would love to cook at it. I am impressed with the prize money too because frankly I dont buy that bullchit "its not about the money". In fact for next year we have already decided that we are going to consider the payouts more before we enter any comp. So my hat is off to Nelsonville. Our problem is time.

Sent my entry in Thursday along with the late fee I didn't know was waived. Maybe I can get a credit at the bar. Look forward to seeing everyone and I want to reserve a space under the palm trees in balmy Nelsonville.

The teams keep signing up for Nelsonville. Just finished a planning meeting and we should have a good line-up of stuff to do along with the competition. What we need now is more judges, preferable certified. If you know a good judge or a judge just send them to our website, www.ohiobbq.com (http://www.ohiobbq.com/) go to the judges section. Looking forward to seeing everyone in October.
