Well Ford, it looks like it's just you and me...

I'm working on the cabinets and trailer this weekend so it'll be nice and smooth setting up.

BTW, I talked with Tiny and he has a special spot just for you back in the "hind 40". I figure your walk shouldn't take more than 45 minutes... LOL

Fellas I am a farkin idiot.I got my dates screwed up and promised to cook a graduation party that saturday.I am hoping to get down there for a visit after I leave the stuff off at the party.Most likely turn ins would be about done when I would get there.I did have a blast last year and was looking forward to this year.You wouldnt believe how much you can get tired of cooking pulled pork.A contest would be a vacation for sure.
Dive that package we discussed isnt gone out yet but it will be.

Hey Coz, don't worry about it... We are still trying to get our dates worked out... We'll also take care of Ford... I plan on going to the Retirement Home where my Mom is to get him a runner....

As for the package, don't sweat it... he has his cooker and his Mom is already figuring out what SHE wants him to cook... LOL

Well Ford, it looks like it's just you and me...

I guess this was more prophetic than I thought...

Stitch, any word on the number of teams coming???

I know that feeling... The reason we're doing this one is because:

A) Stitch and the guys cut the price
B) it's only a little over 100 miles from the house.

Wish you were going to be there bro!

I'll just use my new golf cart. :icon_devil:icon_devil:icon_devil

Well at least it looks like only 2 Brethren members coming. I'm hoping there are more teams, otherwise we can just ship the golf cart to Michigan and save me a long drive. :biggrin: Actually I'd be there even if it was just me and they kept the cart. Great bunch of guys and I enjoyed cooking for them.

All I have to say is, you have to win it before you can use it...

Sounds like it's tank top weather. Perfect for the festivities on Friday. Jeff tells me the entertainment starts Friday this year.

And if really is clear I don't need to setup the EZUP and that saves so much time for both setup and packing. My new philosophy - if I don't need it don't set it up or get it out.

I spoke with TNTdancergirl last night and it was brought to my attention that Ty won't be available to help out...

As I answered Coz's question in the Elk Grove comp thread....
Jeff is Ty part of your team?????

He is always more than welcome, but I also understand that 17 year olds often have other, how do I say it, distractions...

I hear this weeks 'distraction' is the girls soccer games... I understand that there is one girl in particular... LOL

I talked to Divemaster last night on his way home from this competition and he basically owned it! he walked in all four categories including 1st place in ribs, pork and brisket and GC! Congrats, Jeff! Let's see pictures of that gold cart!

Ford
06-14-2009, 10:35 AM
Divemaster had a great day cooking. I did manage to beat him in chicken and got 2 - 2nds and a 3rd but he smoked us all. And that by the way is his first GC. Nice to get a gold cart and tow behing smoker to show off.

Great contest again. They say next year they plan on having a governor's proclamation so with 15 teams it will be a qualifier.

It's an extremely well run contest and they do really treat the cooks great. People coming by to each team every few hours asking if all is OK and if they need anything. Even had visits during the night when it was raining.

Special thanks to Joe for all his help setting up and breaking down and being my runner. Not to mention liking my food. And Stitch - great job and I hope we have it again. And I'll always be watching you guys with those tazers. Billy was still complaining Saturday afternoon but like he said he didn't go down. What happens at the Wolf stays at the Wolf.

J/K. Congrats, Dive. You've earned it.
You bringing the cart to the FatAsh Bash for the Brethren Olympics?

Divemaster
06-14-2009, 05:20 PM
Thank you!!!

It was a great competition. I still can’t believe that we came home with the GC.

The team really came together this weekend under some less than ideal circumstances. We tried some new recipes and techniques and then came the rain. It started raining around midnight and didn’t stop until 7:00 in the morning and yet Angelo and Nundo managed to keep ‘The Mistress’ within seven degrees of ideal and ten degrees end to end!!! Dang it’s great having guys that you can depend on! :icon_cool

Ford, it was great being parked next to you again and as far as the team and I are concerned, your chair is always welcome in our site. You did a great job cooking and I really thought you were going to come home with it after tasting your food. Congratulations on the RGC and all of your walks! Also, thank you again for the great pork loin dinner you cooked up on Friday night. It really hit the spot! (BTW, Bigdog & Arlin, we had the Maytag Blue Cheese you gave me with dinner, talk about a hit!!!)

Mike and Animal, it was great seeing both of you again and congratulations on your walks. Thanks for the Crawdads and Gumbo, it all tasted great! Also, Animal, thank you for NOT showing me your thong this year… I’m finally getting last year’s memory out of my brain!

Stitch, what can I say, once again you and the guys put on one heck of an event! While I haven’t been to all that many competitions, I really believe that this is truly the most ‘Cook Friendly’ event that I’ve ever been to. Tiny did a great job making sure that every one had what ever they needed by stopping by every couple of hours through out the night and even in the rain. We knew that Ford was going to need a runner and you guys couldn’t have done better than lending him ‘Get It Done’ Joe. He was right there helping Ford setup, pack-up, and also a runner. The only problem was that he didn’t believe us when we told him that he needed to really shake Ford’s box hard for good luck on the way to turn-in (or maybe he did :eek::mrgreen::eek::mrgreen::eek:)…

The team and I agreed that we’ll be back again next year and with the Governor’s Proclamation, you should be filled up. I still think that it is one of the nicest venues for a competition. You guys did a great job of clearing more space and still leaving enough trees for shade and wind break. I think one of the more impressive memories was when each of us was pulling out and all of the people that came up to the trucks to thank us for coming. We really felt appreciated.

OK, now here is the pron!
