The organizers of this new contest asked me to put the word out to find some more teams, so here it is.

This is a non-sanctioned event, but it does pay $2,000 in prize money for only a $100 entry. Categories are "Beer Can" Chicken, ribs, pork shoulder and brisket. The venue is a grassy park that is level, well shaded with good power and water.

We're splitting up the JMS crew into three separate teams to cook this one just for fun. I think it will be a nice change from the more intense sanctioned shows - just a chance to kick back and relax with a little cooking for fun. We'd love to see as many of our friends out there as possible! Details, application and rules can be found here: http://euharlee.com/events_bbq.aspx

Hope to see you this weekend!

Too bad there was not more notice.

I put on a non-sanctioned just for fun event a year ago. Didn't get much response, but the ones that showed loved it...

Just like you said, a non pressured fun event. We did go by the basic "rules" and turn in times as they wanted to use it for a "practice" run before the season really hit last year.

Next year, try to get more notice out, and you just might pick up several more teams. This would have been a good weekend for us, as we are in a slump right now between comps.

Good luck, and don't forget the pics, or it never happened.... :rolleyes:

You're right Bill - the folks that are putting on this show did a fine job for their first time out and definitely learned a lot. They promise to start promoting the event several months in advance instead of weeks next year.

Weather was a good as it gets in Georgia summer (hot but no rain, with a nice occasional breeze) and everyone seemed to have fun. Here's the partial results - the rest will be posted on Euharlee.com within a week:

First Place Beer Can Chicken: Larry's Flaming Pits
First Place Ribs: Snouts Honor
First Place Pork: Civil War BBQ
First Place Brisket: Johnny Mitchell's Smokehouse
