What an awesome place for a contest, where is it exactly? Too far from NE, but we love Pikes Market.

It is right along side the market on the cobblestone street! :-P It's a bit of a nightmare to cook though...we can't load in until 6 pm on Saturday and the wind coming off the sound in April is pretty chilly. It's kind of a tradition with the PNWBA to kick off the season here as it is a qualifier. :cool:

On the good side...we won't want for coffee, food, or fresh produce...:biggrin:

Cooked this cookoff up until 2007. Several things learned over the years are
1. DO NOT FEED the homeless unless you want a riot
2. DO NOT feed the rats which run around at night, this includes sleeping on the ground.
3. Kiss the pig, did so in 2007 and took RGC to Dales GC
4. Don't set up on the open end of the street as pits do wonderful things in the wind coming off the sound, to include flying. Also, place your name on your canopy so that when it's found, it can be returned
5. Try the donut holes just down from the flying fish market (to the left of the pig. Best in the world
6. Try the blueberry tea at Anthony's
7. Good beer in the market pub
8. If still there, World Class Chili, is great but Joe, God Rest his soul, passed last year and it may not be open now. He always asked, when you ordered your chili, Mild, Hot, or do you want to meet Jesus
9. Make friends with security as they have the keys to the restrooms (the clean ones, not the public ones on the lower level.

RE: #8. World Class Chili is long gone now.
#9. The city of Seattle sold the Million dollar self cleaning, drug and prostitution activity public restrooms in Crackhead Park-across from where the trailer pits setup! Too bad! I have a few tokens I was gonna give Doc!

So true!

That's down toward the open end where it's a bit nippy this time of year...but if I think about it I'll send you a pic...I'm sure we'll be visiting it a time or two...:cool:
