Taking the week off prior to head down there, relax and help Bill with the last minute stuff. Big party Saturday Night!!!!!!!

It'll also be round 2 of the 3-Eyz/Big Ugly Challenge. Dan won round one, so I have my work cut out for me. The wives have some strange award for the winner, that kinda scares me..........:twitch:

Heck, I had a camera team following me around also. There were 4 crews following the two of us, Chix, Swine & Bovine, and Acme Bros. This year will be better, thinking slip-n-slide, and swimming pool next to the Tiki Bar.

I just called and booked my spot for Thursday night. My current plan is to roll in early Thursday morning, set up and relax a while with a cold one in hand. Been working too hard lately and have not gotten to do as many comp's as I would have liked to this year. See ya'll in 3 weeks.

Sadly we have to miss out on this one this year I got booked to do a 3 day BBQ event at the resort where the G8 was held. For anyone considering it. I have to tell you this was one of our all time favorite contests. It is so much fun. the facilities are top notch Bill Small his family and the volunteers are incredible and if you are lucky you might just get to be beside a great team called Big Ugly's . Our kids are still in mourning that we won't be going back this year.

Since it's a dual sanction event I'll be there as the MABA Rep. We're coming in Thursday and leaving Sunday.

I'll have the knife sharpener with me if anyone needs it done.

River Lizard
07-07-2010, 01:05 PM
Wife and I will be checking out this event. Hope to sample as many Brethren members BBQ as possible and check out their setups. Being new to all of this, I'm hoping to learn a few things at the event that will help me when I start smokin'.

Good luck to the Brethren teams at this event.

Rick Hamilton
07-07-2010, 02:18 PM
Will be getting in hopefully by early Weds evening. The wife ended up with some last minute meetings in California so will not be joining me until about the middle of turn ins Saturday (in time for clean up!).

Looking forward to this one. One of my favorites for sure.

See yall there.

We will be there...Princess and the Pig. We are arriving on Thurs...hopefully not too late but as it usually goes we won't be ready to leave on time. Staying till Sunday. Going to be cooking on our new Fatboy so it will be fun trying to get used to it. Eric finally is able to maintain temps on it....Did a cook last weekend ole boy ran all night on 1 load. Now we just have to figure out how not to mess up the rest of the process.

Will the teams be offering/selling samples of their BBQ at the event?

HBMTN
07-13-2010, 04:56 PM
Usually some teams are set up to sell BBQ, plus I believe the fire dept. usually sells bbq. Teams usually don't give samples though but there is plenty of bbq for sell. Also there is a great car show and live music all day. This is a great way to spend the day and not far from Richmond. you can check it out @ www.queandcruz.com (http://www.queandcruz.com) stop by our site after 1:30pm and say hi, that is when we make our last turn in and most teams are glad to talk after that.

River Lizard
07-13-2010, 05:06 PM
Thanks Ruben. I looked at the vendor list and it didn't seem like there was any BBQ vendors listed, so I just wanted to have it confirmed that some teams will be selling some at the event.

We'll definitely be coming to the event.

Looks like we'll be getting there Thursday in the afternoon now. Sam's district championship game keeps getting postponed because of rain, now it's tomorrow night. If his teams wins then we have to leave early Sun. morning to get up to the Md. state tournament in Hagerstown. We have a spot at a K.O.A. there for Sun. night and Mon. night. After that, who knows? Then we have Holy Smoke in Easton a few days after that...

I think the main/only vendor is the fire dept. I'm not aware of any teams selling Q.

Mark you might be right about no teams selling, I always thought Checkered Pig was selling up on top the hill, but then again I never walked up there to see, but there will be plenty of BBQ for sell I'm sure.

Dan,(3EYZ) holler down the hill a bit to us in #19 when you get in. I'll walk up and help you unload and setup. An alternative to I-95 traffic may be dropping down Rt 301, to Rt 206 or Rt 3 at Dahlgren-King George. Take rt 3 to Fredbg (22 mi) then head out rt 208 towards Mineral and Louisa. just a thought.

Great time to be had by all. Thanks to everyone for stopping by for visit. The Big Ugly Tiki Bar, ver. 2, was a HUGE success, not to mention the pool was fully used throughout the weekend. Back-to-back wins for best booth, now if I could only learn to cook!

If anyone has pics, post 'em up or please send me a copy on email.

Don't know how to top that for next year, maybe the slip n' slide, or a frosty beverage machine. Got home last night, and fell into bed. Need a vacation to recover from my vacation.

Congrats to Black Cat and Lo n' Slo for their wins, and to everyone who got a call.

Brother Bill (and the family), love ya man, anytime you need somethin', give me a call!

What a weekend! It was hot HOT HOT but that didn't defray any of the festivities. Huge kudos to the Small family for the organization and execution of this event. Special thanks to all the volunteers who labored in the heat to bring the event off.

Congratulations to Black Cat and Low-N-Slo for Grand and Reserve.

A special thanks goes out from me to all those that made my wife Hillary feel so welcome at her first start to finish event.

The beer/margarita fairy will return next year.

Dagonne Boshizzle! wish you had made it back! thanks for the picture, and sure would have had time to say hi. Big Ugly and the tiki bar and pool are catsass! The Small family, tops all around. Without all the "volunteer campers" delivering ice, I think a lot of us would have boiled. my therometer had 102.8 friday about 6pm in the shade.

My 19 year old brother in-law got mouthy with his 35 year old brother and it escaladed into the 19 year old saying to his brother to "bring in on B!tch" well to make a long story short that is exactly what he did:boxing: I've had to lay down the law to them all if they can't have fun then stay the fark at home.

Sorry we missed you, Boshizzle. Wish you would've come back and said hi.

I just noticed I had on the paper towel bandanna while cooking the chicken. But Rick has one on when we built the boxes. :-D

This pic was taken right after last turn-in. We were waiting for our runners to get back for a celebratory beverage.

Dude, yall rock! You had it goin on. Thanks for the hospitality. I'm still kicking myself in the arse for missing the MABA shot. :crazy: That would have totally helped my whole mindset and helped us build boxes.

I only live 35 minutes away from Small Country and I died when I got home. The heat really got to me this wknd. I can only imagine what you went thru.

Well I screwed up and didn't write down a list of member's Q names before attending the event, so I didn't know which booths to stop by to say hello. I saw CatsAss but I wasn't sure it was the same CatsButt on here and didn't want to make an butt out of myself by walking up and saying hello to someone who isn't a member here. :confused: Kept looking for any signs that had "Brethren" on it, to help me ID someone from here, but I never saw any.

I guess I pictured that things would be setup differently (not sure why) but my wife and I were rather lost when it came to figuring out who was who and we were disappointed that teams didn't offer samples for sale to the public. I really wanted to sample what the guys here make rather than what was offered at the Fire Dept. booth. No offense but I didn't care for the ribs they had for sale at all.

It was definitely hot.

Next year I'll make sure I write names down so I can stop by and say hello.

beerguy
07-20-2010, 10:51 AM
Catsass was right, its Brauma and beerguy. Wish you had stopped in. Youre welcome anytime. The sample thing has to do with supporting the fire dept caterers, as it is a fundraiser for them. Unless a competitor is also vending, we are NOT licensed by the health dept and therefore cannot pass out samples to the public. Hope this helps to clear that up.

Dan - 3eyzbbq
07-20-2010, 11:35 AM
Hey Lizard-

Mention that your Brethren and I bet you'll get samples. Just ask!

River Lizard
07-20-2010, 02:38 PM
Thanks guys. First time to such an event and I'm still learning the ins and outs of it all. I understand the fundraiser part, I was just looking forward to getting to sample some Q and talk with fellow members from here. I really wouldn't care if I got a half of a table spoon to sample from each team, just wanted to learn what types of spices etc... and the flavors from different woods. Many of you here have been doing this for years, I've just started working on building a smoker, got years of learning to do.

I saw the team that had the blowup swimming pool (my wife thought that was funny (in a good way) ).
Looks like ya'll have a great time for several days with your camp setups.

Guess the reason all the camps were at the back of each lot was to get away from the gravel road dust? (which makes sense). I saw that they were watering down the road to help keep the dust down.

Any events coming up in the next month within about 60-75 miles of Richmond ??

Unless a competitor is also vending, we are NOT licensed by the health dept and therefore cannot pass out samples to the public.

It is however okay to give samples to family and friends. Being part of the wonderful thing called the BBQ Brethren Forums could be considered both. Even though I have not met 99.3% of the members, any Brethren member is always welcome at my site for a sample, a beer, or just semi-good conversation.

When I was standing in line there was a guy working the smoker next to the trailer and he was pulling pans and running them inside the trailer while I was there. He also had two rest boxes that were full of Q also.

Again, no offense to whoever made the ribs but when my wife takes 1 bite and passes the remaining 4 ribs to me, I know something isn't right, she loves BBQ.

I would never think of posting a response like this but I can't help it in this case.

River Lizard...Are you kidding me? Even after Bill informed you some of the teams donated their time and efforts to provide for this you again had to make another comment about how you didn't like the ribs you received. Unbelievable. I am assuming you are on this board because you either cook or enjoy bbq. I would assume that next bbq charity event you will be there to volunteer and provide the best damn ribs anyone has ever had. Afterwards I hope someone doesn't come around to post, multiple times, how they didn't like them.

This is one of the coolest things Bill does. He buys a bunch of meat and asks teams with extra space to cook for the fire dept. I think it's cool as chit and a hell of a great idea. We can doctor the meat right along with our other comp meats. Sorry you got a bad rib. It happens.

Um, that would be a Mr. Big Ugly. :thumb: I'm not going to say whether or not I graced the pool one night, but I did play a mean game of bean bag toss. Note: I refuse to call it corn hole because where I come from, that name has a whole different meaning. :shock:

Guess the reason all the camps were at the back of each lot was to get away from the gravel road dust? (which makes sense). I saw that they were watering down the road to help keep the dust down.

Yes & no. A lot of teams want to be back from the wandering crowd. Sometimes energetic, intoxicated fans will feel like they have every right to roll right into your camp and help themselves. I've never seen it at Que & Cruz but it has been an issue at other events. Most teams will setup the same way each time by habit.


Any events coming up in the next month within about 60-75 miles of Richmond ??

There is a rib shoot out this coming wknd up by Kings Dominion at the new State Fair. Sorry, I had a link but cant find it. I cant make it this wknd.

Sept 11 is the West VA championship. It's the same wknd as RIR and the 1st VT football game. Lots going on. But this event is called Pickin in the Panhandle (http://www.panhandlepickin.com/) and it's also the state bluegrass festival. We love it. Ricky Skaggs will headline this year. Cant wait.

The water on the road was more to keep the dust down for the car show.

I would never think of posting a response like this but I can't help it in this case.

River Lizard...Are you kidding me? Even after Bill informed you some of the teams donated their time and efforts to provide for this you again had to make another comment about how you didn't like the ribs you received. Unbelievable. I am assuming you are on this board because you either cook or enjoy bbq. I would assume that next bbq charity event you will be there to volunteer and provide the best damn ribs anyone has ever had. Afterwards I hope someone doesn't come around to post, multiple times, how they didn't like them.

Guess you missed the no offense part (by choice?) should I have BS'd and said they were good? Didn't say anything like: "Those ribs were krap, I could smoke better ones in my sleep" now did I? Again, I didn't mean anything towards WHOEVER did them, I was just stated an opinion of my wife and I on them. And that we were just disappointed that we didn't get to taste ones from teams here (directly) and that was probably mainly my fault for not writing down the team names before going to the event, but again, this was the first one I attended, it's not the first time I've ate ribs before! From Chicago to Omaha to Texas.....had them many places, some better than others.
Sounds like your nerves are too close to the surface, life's too short.


Moving on:

I saw the bean bag toss, thought that was a cool idea to have at a camp setup for the weekend.
Yep, I was looking for any type of Brethren sign whether it was small or large to ID members from here, but never saw one.

I can see your point on people just walking up to your setup if it was located right by the road/path people are walking on. That's one of the reasons I didn't want to walk back to each setup and ask if they were a member here or not, would have been ackward if I found out they weren't and stroll up to their setup like that. Especially when I saw turn-ins going on when we were there, probably not the best time to stop by anyway with the comp going on.

Thanks for the info on upcoming events, might check out Kings Dominion one if I don't have anything else going on this weekend. Going to be another hot one this weekend.

That makes sense on the cars and the dust, didn't even think about that.

True. Keep this time-line in mind: at any KCBS comp, keep your distance between 11:30 and 1:30. Any other time, feel free to walk up and talk BBQ with anyone.

Mark, thanks again for that sign/light! It has a temporary place above the BU Tiki Bar ver I, in my man-cave. We are taking it with us on the road, when we set the bar up. I'll post some pics later on.

You're quite welcome. I'm glad you can use it. Looking forward to seeing it in action!
