Agreed on the having fun thing, although I have not cooked this contest before.

I will also be more than willing to help you out if I can with anything, but only if you come to our site with a bottle of 2005
Bordeaux. :twisted::wink:

A question I have is do people ever stay over on Sat night? Then take off on Sunday morning at comps. Whe group im comming with is my wife and 3 of her cousins and their husbands. We camp together 3-4 times every summer and they allowed me to pick the first place we went this year. Little did they know what I had up my sleeve but we are all looking forward to it now.

I think we may try to stay overnight. A four hour drive is a little far when you are that tired after a competition.

It will be great to meet everyone, it looks like many our our paths will cross several times this summer.

For anyone that is doing the peoples choice, do you know if we have to provide our own chaffing dish or will a foil pan work????

05-11-2009, 08:46 AM
I didn't either and I noticed my check wasn't cashed so I sent him an email....he got it and did say that he hasn't cashed any checks yet...

I also asked about the peoples choice...if you are particiapting you will need to provide your own chafing dish heated with 2 cans of sterno.

See you all on Friday, I will be pulling in mid-morning. Looking forward to the 18 mile drive (beats the hell out of the 400 miles for that last one!)

It's kind of a crap shoot. Some is on pavement and some is on grass. I'd say most will be on grass.

Well either way I'm bringing my rubber boots and rain gear just in case. I saw a thread a couple of months ago of comps that looked like a monsoon went through them. It freaked me out!

Smokin' Joe
05-14-2009, 10:05 PM
The weather looks like its going to be a challenge....25 mph winds, rain, and 55 degrees is some trifecta from hell:twisted:

Bring your warm clothes, see everyone tomorrow


good luck!!

Smokin' Joe
05-17-2009, 10:06 AM
Well that was an adventure...the weather was as bad as promised and it was the least cooks friendly/organized event I've been to. I thnk they were trying, just not prepared for the number of teams they had (71 teams).

Congrats to Buster Dog on first place pork, Wine & Swine on their first call in their first comp with 6th place pork, and the rest of the brethren that got calls.

Hey Smokin Joe - your right the amount of teams and the fact that Perry took over this contest on short notice cought us off guard. We (MN BBQ Society) jumped in to help but it got behind. We will be better prepared next year and will talk to the weather man about that crap we all had to cook in, misarable at best. Why couldn't we have todays weather Yesterday! Thanks for coming hopefully see you next year.

The Turk
05-17-2009, 03:57 PM
There was a problem with the KCBS computer so results are somewhat delayed. Check in at KCBS.us for the final results. Top 5 overall - Iowa's Smokey D's - Grand, A Boy and his BBQ - reserve, THe Heat is on 3rd, Four Mile Fred 4th, Bavarian BBQ Boys 5th, pending.

Smokin' Joe
05-17-2009, 04:21 PM
I kinda wondered about that, it was still a good comp and we will be back next year. I know Perry was working his butt off,, just missing a few of the little things, maybe were just spoiled:lol:

Amen on the weather, I'm sure it could have been worse...I'm just not sure how:icon_smil

Are more of the results we got yesterday incorrect?

Asking for money back?:shock:. Wow, thats mighty bold of them.

Maybe our brisket moved up.:mrgreen:. That thing was spot on and deserved a better score than it got.

Great meeting you Dan. Good wine you have there with some killer lables.
You have a website a person could order your wine from?

See ya down the road.
