It was a VERY busy weekend, cooking on the new rig and camping on Friday with the family straight after work then driving almost two hours to the comp then returning to the camp site to family and friends.
I need a larger van and to remember my sleeping bag!!

It was great to bring home the win but the best cook of the weekend was my 14 year old son. He man-handled the 250 (unnamed cooker) keeping everyone fed with lunch and dinner back at the campsite. Big man did burgers, sausages and chicken.

Thanks brothers :cool:
Funny thing if you look at the first picture you can see the mat in the back of the van where I was sleeping, the little orange/red heater on the table kept my feet warm.lol I woke up hugging a bag of lump wood. HAHAHAHAH!

Next stop-


BBBQS Northern Championship
This exciting event will be taking place at Rother Valley Country Park, Mansfield Road, Wales Bar, Sheffield, S26 5PQ on the 25th & 26th July 2009.
This weekend Rother Valley not only hosts the British BBQ Society Northern Championship but also their “Party in the Park” weekend with an estimated footfall of 40,000.
To add to the excitement we are adding an additional category to the competition;-
Peoples choice category
With produce supplied by a sponsor, cooks prepare & sell the result to the general public. With each sale a voting form is given to the customer which allows the general public to vote on the winner. Sales will be split 50 /50 between the competitors and BBBQS to subsidise teams and BBBQS Costs.
The Ultimate Prize!
The rumours are true! The Jack Daniel’s Distillery will be hosting one of the world’s most prestigious events, the Jack Daniels Invitational, Lynchburg, Tennessee in October, and they have guaranteed a place for the British BBQ Society National Grand Champion, The British BBQ Society is aware of the huge expense to the team granted this honour and is currently searching for sponsors to aid the British BBQ Society's Grand Champion in challenging the Americans in their own back yard..

BBQ started in Ireland not America.


It's not well know at all here as far as getting it right but I'm on the chain gang to get it to the top of the list. It can only be good for the sport. :cool:

actually I believe the origins of BBQ are rather unclear but the word seems to come from many sources.

the most plausible theory states that the word "barbecue" is a derivative of the West Indian term "barbacoa," which denotes a method of slow-cooking meat over hot coals. Bon Appetit magazine blithely informs its readers that the word comes from an extinct tribe in Guyana who enjoyed "cheerfully spitroasting captured enemies." The Oxford English Dictionary traces the word back to Haiti, and others claim (somewhat implausibly) that "barbecue" actually comes from the French phrase "barbe a queue", meaning "from head to tail." Proponents of this theory point to the whole-hog cooking method espoused by some barbecue chefs. Tar Heel magazine posits that the word "barbecue" comes from a nineteenth century advertisement for a combination whiskey bar, beer hall, pool establishment and purveyor of roast pig, known as the BAR-BEER-CUE-PIG (Bass 313) (http://xroads.virginia.edu/%7ECLASS/MA95/dove/bbqbib.html). The most convincing explanation is that the method of roasting meat over powdery coals was picked up from indigenous peoples in the colonial period, and that "barbacoa" became "barbecue" in the lexicon of early settlers.

We have a Celtic Fest every year where I live and last year I spent about an hour with a guy that was allowing people to sample "the world's first true BBQ" He went on and on about peat. It was interesting to watch burn and seemed to last a long time. The flavor profile it generated was very interesting.

I think some home testing is called for here.

That is awesome! Donegal is a marvelously beautiful place. Spent three days there on my backpacking tour of Ireland and the UK.

Saw this while browsing my favourite topic 'Peat.' By way of a Peat update and introduction for general information, Jim Gallagher was the owner of Irish Smoke, an American and my ex partner, who created Sneaky Peat in 1998 in Donegal, Ireland, where he retired to live.

I bought in on my return from Africa, and we then launched Sneaky Peat (USA) in 1999, which I still own and run. Jim died in 2010, and as a result Irish Smoke no longer exists, although I own the trade marks along with Irish BBQ and Sneaky Peat.

We are dead serious about Peat, have associates in Ireland, UK and Africa and are always happy to forge grand relationships promoting mutual endeavours.

Happy Irish BBQ'ing - T'is the only way - when ye know how!!

An English team won the Jack a few years ago. The World BBQ Association has been around for 15 plus years. There are a lot of comps in Europe.
