Who is attending this event? This is White Dog's first contest of the year (waiting has been killing me!) and we're looking forward to the event. Hope to see some Brethren there.

We will be there and look forward to seeing some Brethren as well. Also, if there is any talk of a group shot, or something.

I'm not cooking but plan to stop by and say hello.
Last year Clint (S.I.D.E.) let me hang around his place.

I'm looking forward to meeting you guys.

I don't think so

Is this event full?

When I last asked about 2 months ago there were three spots left. Send Helen an email and see what's up but they don't have much wiggle room due to the giant fair. hpfiore@monmouthcoutyparks.com (http://us.mc1112.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=hpfiore@monmouthcoutyparks.com)

As an FYI to new teams, pay attention to the rules regarding fire extinguishers. Few teams had ones big enough to conform to NJ regulations last year so the organizers brought some in and let it slide but I think it may be an issue this year.

Guido, I'll send you a note shortly. Looking forward to hanging out.

The event is full, and the packets should be to all in a day or so. The thread kinda died quickly w/o much interest. Is this it for Brethren competitors?

I tried to get in too late. I dragged my feet because helens assistant told me that they are opening extra rows and they had plenty of room. I wish I could get in. I may just come adn cook with FAT ANGEL if a spot doesn't open up. Good LUck everyone.

Sadly one of our team mates took offense to the pedofile proclaimation requirement. lol

Can't wait. I have the house to myself all next week then head out early friday.

Make sure you get drunk ahead of time since the cops take the whole no liquor in the park thing seriously.

Let Robby know that this (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=65250) doesn't make you a pedophile.

Looking forward to seeing everyone. Clint is right about the fire extinguishers and alcohol, other than that it was a great contest with a huge crowd at the fair.

Good luck to all. It is my teams first full on practice cook weekend so I can't make it down there. Missed Wildwood too. Yikes.

I don't know how to do the Sledcast so I won't even try. Current forecast is a high of 81 on Friday and 84 on Saturday, with scattered thunderstorms both days. Hopefully the rain holds out!

07-22-2009, 09:34 AM
Forecast is looking a little better this morning so fingers crossed. Hoping to be there by 11 or so Friday.

Maybe I will judge??? Anyone want to pay me off???

07-23-2009, 07:18 AM
I read the word "isolated" T-storms for Friday this morning, with the chance at 30%. We should be good.
What's the skinny on the no alcohol? Does it mean "no alcohol" or does it mean use cups?

Congrats again to Tom and Michelle! What a year! I had a great time and love this contest despite my worst showing in a few years. Just a bad day with the judges I guess! Great getting to spend so much time with Fire Ants, Smokopolis, Red Lion, Fat Angel and the rest.

07-26-2009, 02:44 PM
We got our arses handed to us, but had a great time and look forward to doing it next year. Good to see the Brethren members and congrats to Lo-N-Slo, Flying Porkers, White Dog, and Fat Angel. (Apologies to any I missed)
Once I get the sheets unpacked I want to post the scores and boxes for some cold hard critiques.

Congrats to all that walked. This was, once again, a 1st class event. The staff is highly responsive, the restrooms are cleaned a few times a day, the site is easy to get in and out of, and the crowds are very into the event. Oh, and it was 100% certified judges, so that is always a huge plus!!

It was nice to see a few teams competing for the very first time at this contest. Can't wait until next year to do this one again. See some of you guys in New Holland in a few weeks.
