sorry Lynn won't be able to make it this year a little event in NLR is a calling.

We will be there. The West event is one of our favorites. The folks down there are great. Two years ago, I asked if there was a place we could get some firewood and they said they would bring it to us, well they did, a half cord and we burned it all. This is probably our favorite event. They have a kids cookoff too. Both of my girls have entered..... but only one has won!

Don't forget to stop at the Czech Stop and get some damn fine kolaches.

The tomatillo sauce in the cooler isn't bad either. It's unique, but the bomb on some good sausage in a roll.

There is a place down one of the side streets in town that I like real well. I don't remember the name of it though.

03-09-2010, 06:44 PM
That Bar where Big Wheel drinks?

03-09-2010, 07:00 PM
Ya know, I might just remember that place Friday evening.

Always a good time at West

Any results?

Craig w/ Texas Pepper Jelly was GC, he had a 1st, 2nd and 4th.

Waldo w/ Lost Gonzo was RGC with a 1st and 2nd.

I (grillas in the pits) was close, finished third with a 10th, 6th and 10th.

Most folks got just one call only two finished with calls in all categories, lucky....

There were about 100 teams total but the weather was so bad that a few teams opted not to cook because they couldn't get their pits up to temp. There were about 20 (72 turn-ins) teams that didn't turn in chicken. I think there were 94 briskets turned in. The storms rolled in just after 5AM.

Many EZ ups were were mangled, The wind continued to blow and luckily dried up things a bit for our departure this morning. We didn't set up at our usual spot because we didn't pre-register, That turned out to be a blessing in disguise, we ended up on the high ground near the entrance. I think I'll take that again next year.

Had a blast regardless of the weather, gotta love the stumps insulated pits.

Your right, Tony, that was the worst weather I ever cooked in. I had a 8th chicken call and made my entry fee back. Craig's scores were 2nd chicken, 1st ribs, and 5th brisket. I was wiped out after that one.

03-21-2010, 11:48 PM
Aint nobody teasnin Craig about his Chicken Cookin anymore

03-21-2010, 11:52 PM
Ain't that the truth! I have twenty other things lined up though.

Congrats Darwin! I know it had to be tough.

03-22-2010, 09:46 AM
Darwin you should be very proud of the fact that you have hit every time you have cooked. congratulations to you my friend

03-22-2010, 09:48 AM
yea Tom you don't hear much about Craig's lack of chicken skills these days :-P

Congratulations to all the brethren teams that got a call:-D

Congrats to all!

On Friday I looked at the weather, and wished I was in Little Rock this year instead of last. I was also thankful that I wasn't down in West when the snow started to fall. Anybody that turned something in under those conditions gets some respect from me. Folks that walked truly earned it this weekend.
