Elks will sell dinner on Friday night and serve a free breakfast on Sat. Also has real bathrooms inside the lodge by the bar. They sell tickets for different drawings. Last year, the drawings were for cash and one for a shotgun. So brings some cash if you want to participate.

Wait until certain un-named out of town brothers offer to let eldery waitresses stay overnight at their site.

Or the girls going site to site trying to sell jello shots at 8am Saurday.

I don't think I've laughed so much as I did Fri night with our KC brothers.

Yep them boys put out some good food. Not a bad finish for going out and buying ribs at 9:30 Saturday morning.:cool:

I turned in damn good brisket. But with this many teams and quite a few really good IBCA cooks it was a tough field.

Not bad for me to not even start cooking until 7:30 AM Saturday.

The empty bottles of Crown, Beam, various beer cans and bottles were a sign of a good time though. It was great to see Wayne and Jeff again and meet Andy in person. Hopefully I learned something set up next to them. I got to make it North this year to hang with these boys.

Might want to ask Jeff, Wayne and Andy since they kicked our butts.

It's alot more laid back and simple. Chicken half or 2 if there are alot of teams. Spares only and brisket. Turn-in times this comp were 1:00, 2:30 & 4:00, so plenty of time.

Fun cook-off with a heck of a lot of teams. 73 is what I heard.

It's a small area and they were putting them every where even across the street. I got there at 8:00 am Friday and it was already getting crowded. Got a good spot and had power for the RV.

Got to meet Bryan and his gang. They are great bunch of guys. Congrats on your 10th place ribs.. Thats outstanding.

I made final table in Brisket(12th) and Chicke(16th). Not bad with the number of teams.

Had fun will cook there again next year.

Had a lot to do with Italy being cancelled. Larry is glad they cancelled Italy. Lol. I was sure proud to see him walk. He cooks damn good at every event.
