I'd like to go if I could find a FE to borrow. Could probably pay back with some La Fin...

BTW, I think there's only a couple more days to get your application in before the cost goes up. So those thinking of going may want to get their apps in now.

i think it had rained all week and then it didnt let up til sometime sunday afternoon so it was pretty muddy.
the organizers said that if it rained all crazy-like again, they would put us up on this hill... picture 2 is the road up to it from where we were last year.
it is a great competition, auto to the 2010 Jack, very relaxed and we have an awesome potluck. The Festival consists of craft vendors, People's Choice, good bands, and great people!

This is a Saturday/Sunday contest, right? I'm still trying to figure this all out... I mean, I haven't cooked in Massachusetts yet... :roll: Will it still be lobster and steamer season? I might go light and just load up my minivan and cruise out... It's a nice scenic drive...

Lakeside Smoker

Yep, it's a Saturday-Sunday comp. I'm sure we can find some lobsters. But I can guarantee plenty of La Fin Du Monde....

Scottie

Had a bottle of it last night Mike. I swear I was plastered on one bottle... also picked up a couple of Terrible and another one that I can't pronounce... (I'm not good at French)... They also had 12 oz bottles... I was going to try them tonight. :roll:

Thanks for turning me on to this stuff!!!

Can't you just let me show you how to cook on the new toy and let Julie cook on the old Transformer equipment. You know, like at Maine? :icon_shy

Oh BTW... Nice tag on my RV... You could of at least put it on straight... :wink:

Hope to see you guys out there Brendan.

Yeah, you were two feet away cooking in your rig when i got you back. I wasn't really in a position to make sure it was on straight.

And trust me, you're not shocking anyone around here when you say my wife does all the cooking.

You can always come be a Transformer for a weekend...

I think we'll need to find a pellet pooper in order to get Scottie back out here

Scottie

I emailed the organizer and cc'd Ken asking about getting in last week and haven't heard back... I'd be willing to go Old School and drive out in my van with my FE... Just because of the lack of FE's out in NEBS land...

Bastey Boy
08-24-2009, 10:20 AM
Scottie, they do have openings still. Also, I might be able to find you a Traeger or 2. There's a place in Brookline NH that rents them.

We'll be there Friday night. Looks like they're adding a People's Choice on Saturday...prolly wings. Sunday's People's Choice is shoulder, or butt/picnic.

Saturday night we do a huge pot-luck. It was awesome the first year with 21 teams or so, then last year with 36 teams...holy canole! You couldn't even sample everything.

But yeah, I'd guess at least a third of the teams came Friday night last year.

Hey, pot luck sounds awsome, we're in. We prob won't be doing the peoples choice this year though, it being our first comp, but who knows. We will definetly be there Friday at noon.

The web page is now updated with all of the current teams (as far as I know).

they are up to 31... :shock:

This is going to be my first comp, and it looks like all the big dogs are coming out to play that weekend, so I have a couple questions I was hoping that I could get help on so I may stand a chance.

1) Should I put 6 20 dollar bills in the turn in boxes so each judge has an equal portion or would equal portions of 5's or 10's work?

2) Can everyone tell me how to beat them in comps?

Thanks for the help guys i know you'll come thru!
I cant wait for the 18th its going to be a blast!:cool:
