Anyone have a Web site address for the Great Bend Contest and Chest to Chest? I'm looking for more info and an entry form.

Jeff,

I am on the BBQ committee helping to work the contest. We had a meeting last night and Kent said the website is currently not working, but should be fixed soon. The website is

http://www.centralkansasbbq.com/

It is supposed to have the entry forms for Chest to Chest and the regular contest but is not linking right. Email or call the organizer, Kent Romine---- kromine@opiwireless.com or 620-793-2985.

Right now it sounds like there will be 20 or so Chest to Chest teams and 20+ more for the regular contest. Everyone come on in, we would love to have you! The cooks meeting for Chest to Chest will be a prime rib dinner at the current Jack Daniels champion's restaurant, 4 Legs Up BBQ Thursday evening.

Looking forward to getting out west Thursday! Even got a sponsor that will pay for all the meat and then some! Forecast looks brutal though :shock: Can't recall ever being at a comp where it was well over 100 degrees, although Boone County Fair was a HOT farker!!

That's brutal! What are the odds of my getting you to pick up a couple of cases of Shiner for me? I'll pay you for mine, AND whatever you've picked up for yourself.

I'm spending Wed. afternoon getting the Hodedo rig turned around after the Griswald family vacation.

Better yet, stop off in Wichita on your way up with some Lone Star long necks and I'll trade you for Shiners. :icon_cool

I'm flying into KC, otherwise I'd bring my own:lol: I had a Lonestar again recently, and either my taste has really changed or it just isn't the same beer anymore.

Is it too late to get my money back?

I think we'll travel lite this weekend and leave the cooker at home. I figure some foil and a big magnifying glass should get everthing cooked in Tulsa.

Paul, I thought you were going to be poolside in Yates City.

I opted for the free T-shirts and prime rib dinner in Great Bend instead. Actually it was the bull penis for first place that swayed me.

If I was smart I would have opted for the swimming pool @ Yates but I'm rarely accused of being smart. Plus, since it' so far away the rest of my team cannot make it...they were holding me back anyway.:wink:

I don't know for sure but I don't think a fat man works well in 104F on asphalt next to cookers. I better bring an extra case of ice cold beer so as to avoid any health issues.:-D

Jorge, are you in KC already? I can grab you Shiner and bring it along. No problem. The "Griswald family vacation" LOL!!!!! Seems Clark was pretty successful at BBQ while out there on the road! :wink: HEY!! New nickname for Andy! Clark!!

The Griswolds are back in KS as of this evening! What a trip... but there will be a 5 page post on that later!! Time to get ready for the latest trip. from 60's/70's in NY to 104 in western KS!!! Game on!

Also, I have all of your beer you left in Iowa. Light weight!

Leaving Dallas at 10:45, arrive in KC at 12:10 and wait for my checked baggage to show up.

Somehow I think my better half would stage an intervention, if I flew home with beer in my bag. If you won't drink it, and it's the Dos Equis and Corona I can take it to the Friday potluck in Great Bend.

Jorge - You still may be kidnapped and taken to Northern Illinois for the weekend.

I can think of worse places to be, than the BBQ Field of Dreams. You have to negotiate with the Hodedo clan.

As it turned out, Todd, I guess you didn't need him up there in Shannon :) I'm sure you can carry that Boar's tooth on your own :)

Andy, it was great to see how excited you got when Kent announced the Plowboys as winner, and you and Kent trying to high five---I don't think you guys made contact in two or three tries. And I won't tell anyone about Steph and what she was rubbing on----although there are pics so it must have happened! :shock:

I'm proud to say Steph was the first to rub my B.P.

She is a veteran after all... her and Kyle have THREE~~

Here is the list:

Team Name Total Score

Pork Pullin Plowboys 539.2570
Twin Oak Smokin Crew 539.1431
4 Legs Up BBQ 537.9426
Buffalo's BBQ 536.8571
Yellow Jacket BBQ 535.2000
Early Bird BBQ 534.9713
TheSlabs.com 534.6854
Sweet Peppers 529.2571
Daddy Jack's 528.5712
2nd Line Smokin Crew 527.8855
Nothin Fancy 525.6573
Munchin Hogs @ Hilton 525.1993
Big Creek BBQ 521.1428
The Pickled Pig 520.5141
Smokin Bones 510.3997
Pellet Envy 506.7425
Wild Blue 501.9995

There were 17 teams so we used 17 judges-all sampled all turn ins, only one 9 in appearance was awarded per judge, other appearance scores could be decimal (8.5). Low judges score dropped, a perfect score would have been 576. Look how close the difference between 1st and 2nd scores.

And remember Andy, although a Chest to Chest rookie, you knocked off the best! And are now permanantly qualified for Chest to Chest.

Thanks for everything that you, Kent, and Kelly did this weekend. It was a great event, and one I'd like to get back to again..... as soon as I stop radiating the heat I brought back to Texas with me!:eek:

Give some special thanks to the Kansas NG guys that were standing out there on that tarmac in their berets for me! Maybe next year somebody can have a word with their CO and get them into their PCs if it's that hot again. A wool hat in humid, 104* weather, on concrete is not a good idea most of the time:eek:

I will pass your comments on Jorge, and you are right the NG guys are AWSOME! They help out and let us run around their building without complaint.

You know many people pay good money to go to a spa with a sauna or steam bath---we had an open air steam bath Saturday. You'll have to come for Winter Que in February, no 104 temps guaranteed!
