I just wanted to clarify the number of teams we have registered for the Ohio Smoked Meat & BBQ Festival.

We are currently at 21 teams (not 25, yet). In Bear's posting a few of the teams names were long and took up 2 lines. So, here is the re-formatted list of teams.

So you need 4 more teams. I see one team that's not on that list that said they were going. From experiece, there was a flurry of registrations the last few weeks leading up to the contest, and even one who pulling in Friday night, scratched out the application, and paid cash.

Mr Bobo's Traveling BBQ Allstars is considering it. We were thinking of coming down Thursday before Nelsonville, doing the comp, then spending a good part of the week with family before heading to Lynchburg. The only problem is that we have AC/DC concert tickets after Nelsonville on Sunday Night....

We have crossed that magic line and still rolling on. Dallas I'll get you put on the list your word is good enough for me. Check and see if little D can bring his girls from Kettering. LOL

Are we still considering the "Mine Tavern" on the public square the official brethren watering hole? I know the owner Tim Loved it last year.

My wife, who is from Deleware, and I are considering a road trip to visit her family in and about Columbus. Question:

Since we only compete in the TX & OK area I am unsure of the what the taste buds in the upper midwest are after. Any insight would be of use if anyone would care to share.

We won't know for another week if we can get the logistics together for the trip.

Even if you can't figure out the logistics come on down to Nelsonville and check us out. BBQ Brethren are always welcome. In regards to taste, what are you doing inthe Southwest?

Smoke'n Ice
09-23-2009, 04:56 PM
To me, it is up about 1,000 miles. The tastes in OK are candy sweet ribs, Head Country BBQ sauce on the pork and chicken and a crap shoot on the brisket with a thin bbq sauce sometimes working along with burnt ends.

Matt,

Come on over we still have space. You can get all the information you need at www.ohiobbq.com (http://www.ohiobbq.com). I hope you cane make it. To the best of our knowledge the most teams Nelsonville has had in 13 years is 33. We would not mind at all if we beat that.

U2CANQUE
09-29-2009, 04:24 PM
Matt, plenty of folks there to help you along the way, come on out, it is going to be a pretty decent one I do believe........

Also, a big thank you to everyone down that way putting in such hard work......hope they are prepared for the swine, bovine, and cluckin stampede of bbq teams down there this year.......grins, remind the Giant Eagle, Parsley, Parsley, and Parsley....wait, one of the sponsors is GFS.....any idea on their ability to provide parsley?

beardjp
09-29-2009, 05:13 PM
Rob,

I'll alert the Krogers of our coming. I have a good working relationship with them. I can check on GFS. Last year that offered to let teams pre order and it would delivered to Rocky's Boot Grill for pick up. I'll have to check this year. I know that they are supplying the butts for the people’s choice competition. I'll let you know.

We are working to be ready for all the teams. I just ordered in two commercial size generators for the competition area, and welcomed a new sponsor, Buckeye Power Supplys. Just like Santa we are making our list and checking it twice.

Ford
09-30-2009, 11:32 AM
Great Lakes BBQ & Feed Co will be there. I'll be sending in my check tomorrow. Not sure if it will be just me or Carol and the dogs as well. If Carol comes we'll have the motorhome. I'll be there Thursday evening after 6:00 although I may get there a little earlier and park somewhere until I can setup.

Looking forward to seeing people and taking some Ohio cash back to Michigan.

oh, love the smack talk, and hang with the best there as well.......know Ford, and enjoy cooking against him....plenty of experience cooking....and respect him much......
As the contest gets closer, much more smack to be spoken.....just grateful that another Ohio contest has 1, not only a large payday, but, 2, is getting up to the Kettering numers....gives me hope for next years contest in Cleveland.....
really looking forward to seeing downtown filled in Nelsonville...and getting a chance to keep those damn shigs from repeating....

Ford
09-30-2009, 02:25 PM

Thankfully no. Otherwise MI could take top 3 easy. :biggrin: Time we kicked some IN butt as they've thought of this contest as their private playground the last few years with Ribs and Bibs and Shigs. :icon_devil:icon_devil:icon_devil

I'm pretty sure Troy will be getting ready for his trip to The Jack. But he does have a bunch of travel money with 3 GC's in 6 weeks.

And it's been strange year for me. Based on the books I keep I'm real close to break even this year so a good showing at Nelsonville could put me in the black. Kind of exciting turning point in competition.

Now I know Nelsonville is back and alive when the teams are talking smack. With everyones help Nelsonville is at 36 teams with Ford's entry. To the best of our knowledge that is a new record. The old one being 33. We are actually discussing a cut off number, ONLY DISCUSSING. There is still room at the inn.

Just a little extra Nelsonville is having a Backyard BBQ contest on the evening of 10/16. Categories - Pork Loin, Chicken Wings & Dessert. Each category is paying 1st $150, 2nd $100, and 3rd $75. More information at www.ohiobbq.com (http://www.ohiobbq.com).

Rob-I am open for suggestions on the "Best Of". You have been at a lot of comps. What works best? Give me some options and I can work with it.

Ain't nothing set in stone yet, except there is going to be some serious BBQing in Nelsonville in a few weeks, hot damm!!!

I do know some firemen that were happy on Sept 26th.. They had fatties for breakfast, ribs for lunch and pulled pork for supper. I did a big cook next door to the firehouse and thought I would treat them. They asked if they hit the lottery and how much they owed. The response was just a pic. But I did go over turn in time told them they would get them at noon. give or take 4/5 minutes bul****ting before pic was takin.

We are up to 45 teams in Nelsonville. We will not be ready for teams until Thursday evening at 6pm. We have to let the downtown businesses empty out before we start closing streets.

If anyone gets in earlier we can arrange for an area to drop trailers so you can explore the area easier if you want. We have another planning meeting 10/6 so we will get everything worked out for all the teams.

BBQ Competition Etiquette
Samples and meeting the teams



1. BBQ teams love to talk about their cooking and there cookers. Remember this is a professional competition. Between 11:00 am and 1:30 pm BBQ teams are preparing their entries for judging and may not be very talkative. Please take this into consideration, remember these teams have invested a lot of hours and money to compete.

2. Do not enter BBQ team cooking areas unless you are invited to do so. Teams are very busy and have routines that must be completed.

3. Food Samples – BBQ teams are not required to make food samples available to the public. Public food samples are entirely at the discretion of the BBQ team.

If a team does not have samples available please respect their wishes. Do not take anything from any teams cooking area; this may be their BBQ entry you just destroyed!!

I hate contests where people put out their leftovers after each turn-in. Draws the viltures in and causes problems. Is the local/county/state health dept on board with this? Here in MI it's basically not allowed as we are not inspected.

At least I'm self contained within the trailer and people can't get to me.

Now about about people coming down Friday. I'd encourage that as we have lots more time and usually cook comething for dinner and if it's left over well it's just cooking dinner for friends. And we have lots of time to talk.

For some teams that 11 - 1:30 might be a little tight. I know a lot that get pretty uptight after 10 am.

Maybe next year you could have a judges class on Thursday night. With the support we saw from the general public last year, I would think that there would be many people locally interested in becoming a certified judge. It would be a good thing for the cooks as well.

If the general public is going to be making up two thirds of the judging pool for this years contest all I can say is...................its time for fall off the bone ribs!

Well I have a helper for the contest. For some of the old timers at Nelsonville will remember Tom O'Connor who cooked with John Rumery of The Outdoor Cook. Tom is the guy who now owns my first Klose pit. While it's tempting to ask him to bring it we'll be cooking on a pair of FE's. So that means I not only have a runner but I also have somebody to help with meat trimming and the parsley boxes. That means more time for me to socialize. Now I just hope I can get the handicapped cart to keep a charge.

And does anybody have more details on the cook's breakfast? I was thinking if somebody like Old Dave could bring an Egg casserole I might be convinved to thaw a tenderloin out. Maybe somebody else has Fruit to bring and before we know it a few of the Brethren could have their own breakfast.

Smoke'n Ice would consider supplying "Maudee's" (our sponsor) own twist on a Cinnamon French Toast Casserole with Triple Berry Sauce and a dollop of sweetened cream cheese. That is, if Texans are allowed to participate!

I made an assumption that we were talking about Saturday morning!! Won't be in until noon on Friday.

Roger,
The folks at the Mine Tavern are all ready and waiting for their BBQ friends this weekend. I am trying to keep warm thoughts for the weekend so don't scrap your sleevless shirts yet Rob.

Ford, you have to remember this is Ohio, give it ten minutes and the weather will change. The only problem is we just don't know what it will change to. Keep thinking warm, there are enough of us this year we might make a difference, LOL

I'm thinking warm and packing one sleeveless to show the ink. However I also have long sleeves and jackets and ectra blankets for sleeping.

As there was only 1 response on breakfast I decided not to bring a tenderloin. I should be there around 6 tomorrow. Tell them I'd prefer a table rather than the bar at The Mine.
