Let the smack talk start. Last sanctioned contest in Iowa. For those in the Iowa BBQ Society the point total for each category is incredibly close.

All I can say is for this contest I sure hope they get good judges with so much on the line.

Also unlike last year, I am told we don't be on a hill this year. Supoosed to be in the campground or the lower flat area. More details to come.

Apps are on the IBS site. iabbq.org.

See ya there.

We'll be there defending our 24th out of 27th placement overall from last year. ;-) Looking forward to it.

Heard they might have some problems getting 25 teams...

Heard they might have some problems getting 25 teams...

With the other fall cancellations in IA, one would think this would be to Nevada's advantage. We'll be there, sent in our app today.

I hope this is in an RV park - if so, I suggest we get a bunch of teams to stick around Saturday night and have a little year end celebration (year end for KCBS sanctioned comps in IA).

My math has Boondoggle .00005 behind Tippy Canoe and .0001 behind A Boy and His BBQ in pork. Hoping for a good score so we can dump the 164.0000 from LPC. Our ribs can finish no lower then a 169.0000 average. A 170+ brisket score could give us a chance to jump into the top 5 there too. But alas, even a 180 chicken would not put us in the top 5 - shocking, I know :roll:.

What a great idea! I don't think it is in an rv park, but I remember they didn't have problem with electricity last year. Either way, we'll stick around, and if people want to take turns driving to my place to shower up or anything, that would be fine as well.:-D

Hey Bob, this campground is very small. I don' think they could get everybody in it but maybe there is more to it than I remember.. And the power has always been ify.
I ran off a generator last year.

I just got a call from FC, Here's a run down of what I asked and his feedback:

Location - on some old tennis courts. Now I'm not sure how many tennis courts, but I don't know what to expect to get in 25-40 teams on that. He said something about teams requesting level space

Space Size - at least 20x20, request something larger if you need it. I mentioned to him that most of the regulars around IA have trailers larger then 20' long

Elect - he mentioned that elect has not been a problem in the past, we'll all have access to run an extension cord. I asked if he means regular household power (20 amp) and he said yes. I asked if we could run two lines and he didn't think that would be a problem

Saturday night - he didn't think it would be a problem if teams wanted to stick around Saturday, but he wasn't the final word

Anyone know anything about these tennis courts/location he's talking about?

musicmanryann
07-27-2009, 03:52 PM
Yeah they are right to the west of where everything was last year. I don't think there will be enough space for everyone on them, but perhaps some will be on them and some on grass. I think the unlevel spaces were the worst part of the event last year--otherwise a good competition. FC is a great guy. The problem with finding the location is that they want the comp to be close to where all the people are, but the carnivale rides and vending takes up a lot of the useable space in the area. At the same time, for electricity they need to locate us close to the lodge which houses it. The lodge is located at the top of a small hill the slopes towards the creek, hence the unlevel spaces.

Buster Dog BBQ
07-27-2009, 03:57 PM
I thought we were going to tip over last year due to how unlevel it was.

I remember seeing a lot of cords plugged into that house with the power.

KC_Bobby
07-27-2009, 04:00 PM
Ryan, I'm trying to google map the location. Roughly what intersection are we looking at? The only tennis courts I see are at 4th and I Avenue near the west side of town. Is that the location?

KC_Bobby
07-27-2009, 04:01 PM
OK, who's got enough power that we can share some generator power? I can offer parsley.

My father-in-law has a huge honda generator. Not sure how much power it puts out, nor if he is cool about the idea of us using it. When he gets back from Alaska later this week, I will check.

musicmanryann
07-27-2009, 04:06 PM
The location is between the huge cemetary on the west side of town and the county fairgrounds. I'll get a link in a moment.

Yes this is the location. Just to the east and alond I Ave is the building where turn-ins and awards is.

Carnival rides? Where do they go? Fitting 30 teams around those 3 tennis courts is gonna be tight.

musicmanryann
07-27-2009, 04:19 PM
The carnival rides go to the south closer to the creek. I would imagine if teams don't care about an unlevel spot, they could still go around the shelter.

The way they did it last year was first come, first serve as far as spots go.

Buster Dog BBQ
07-27-2009, 04:54 PM
I thought that was the strangest thing last year. It was so quiet then on the other side of the buildings was this who county fair thing.

BBQ_Mayor
07-27-2009, 06:43 PM
Yea, it's going to be tight.
You remember the scene in Christmas Vacation where Ellen hit the light switch with all the outlets on it? Picture that while plugging in.

Shotgun
07-27-2009, 07:57 PM
I could probably line up a honda as well, the nearest power will be at the shelter building. If they dont have the buckskins in the flat lands this year, there will be plenty of room, just a long way to run cords. Saturday night there is a street dance at the end of the midway, if you like country music.

pat
07-27-2009, 08:01 PM
I can probably get a Honda as well. Should have room for someone to hook up if I can get it.

Were going north instead of south that weekend (Albert Lea, Mn). I also heard several "usual" Iowa KCBS contest teams are going to Emmetsburg for the non-sanctioned event that weekend...Albert Lea has 4 teams so far:eek:. Three comps 120 miles apart might be too many up here...

I know it's early, but I'll be bringing a case of parsley. (Calling ahead this time to see if I can get one reserved.) Who wants in? Previous buyers get first chance - Woodfellas, Buster Dog, Tippy Canoe.

One case - I can split with 3 more teams might have enough for another so if you're low Saturday morning and need some for boxes - find one of us.

Just got an email from Kenna (see portion below). We are getting precooked beef ribs and are supposed to reheat for the public sampling?? Never had that happen at a contest yet. Is it normal to get precooked meats for the public? Not sure I am into that.....


"The meat that will be provided for public tasting will be beef ribs (which have been cooked and will only need to be reheated), pork ribs and possibly pork loin."

KC_Bobby
08-21-2009, 11:06 AM
Yeah, I'm not hip on it either but I guess I do understand it gets the public involved with the teams. We did something very similar to it at the Qlossal (although we cooked it) and it wasn't that much of a pain. I assume it will go pretty fast - I just hope it doesn't get in the way of actual work like prepping.

I found it more disappointing that meat check ins don't start til 2:00.

pat
08-21-2009, 11:16 AM
Yeah saw the 2:00 thang. Not good. I don't have a problem with the samples, just sampling something that I didn't cook I guess.

This is provide by W&G Marketing, one of the contest sponsors. They did this last year and I thought those beef ribs were fantastic. I don't mind warming them up and saying go to W&G Marketing to buy them.

Buster Dog BBQ
08-22-2009, 05:31 PM
I talked to FC today. 40 teams is what they are expecting and can accommodate more. Said their is no issue for staying around Sat night. This is really shaping up to be a big contest for a couple reasons.

1. The IBS TOY points are tight. The brisket category is less than a 1 point difference from places 1-4.

2. Smokey D's needs one more win for an automatic Jack birth and this is his last contest to get it before the cutoff date.

watertowerbbq
08-22-2009, 08:52 PM

I'm hoping they are flexible on this and can get it done earlier. Actually, I am a little annoyed at this because of the cooking for the public. I don't have a problem with cooking for the public and I don't have a problem with a later meat check time, but when they combine these I think it gets tough to properly prep and cook the meat for the public and at the same time getting my contest meat ready. Enough ranting..........I'm really looking forward to getting up there and seeing everyone!:-D

I will be pulling over on Thursday and dropping. I dont know how FC has it set up as far as placing people. Its sounds like he has an idea, but nothing set. He is thinking around 40 teams as of yesterday.

I am dropping off Thursday night as well. Talked to FC over the weekend and it sounds like wherever you want to setup. The tennis courts were going to be the main emphais is sounded like, but people were going to be able to setup under the trees if they wanted shade.

Sounds like there will be power from the turn in building and a bigger generator by the tennis courts.

Maybe I'll catch some of you Thursday night. IF not, see you Fri.

I think we are going to try to be where we were last year. It was one of the most level spots then and in the shade, near restrooms, electricity and turn-ins. We were two spots to the east from the Grumpy's.

Last year it was first come first serve.

From Kenna today

There will be ice available on-site at no cost to you. F.C. will be distributing it from the Community Building.

Nick Lavieri from ISU will be conducting our meat inspections starting Friday morning from 8:00-10:00 a.m. and after 1:00 p.m. Sorry for the earlier confusion.

F.C. will be on-site Thursday evening after 5:00 p.m. to direct you to your site, as well as all day on Friday and Saturday. I will also be on-site Thursday evening after 6:00 p.m. and Friday morning from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and from 4:00 p.m. on and Saturday from 6:30 a.m. on. Either of us will also be available on our cell phones for any questions.

KC_Bobby
08-26-2009, 10:37 AM
Not really sure why no one can give meat inspections between 10-1 ... one would think that's when most teams will arrive. Isn't anyone other than Nick qualified to see if meat is good to go?

Of course since all of these teams getting parsley from Boondoggle will be dropping off campers on Thursday, I think it sure would be nice of ya all to get me a good spot beside you all since I'm coming all the way up from KC.

I'm dropping off the RV Thursday as well. See ya then! Any idea where most of you will park if it is first come first served...the tennis courts or the shade??
We have requested the south east side of the community building, I can ask FC if he could reserve the Boondoggle boys a site around that area as well.

Thanks to all the teams who made the Nevada contest a success! I couldn't have done it without you! And thanks for all your patience with me.
