Okay, so I talked the wife into making the trip. We have some friends in Hays, so we're going to enjoy this one even if the 25 team hurdle isn't reached. I'm mailing my entry in today.

Put us down, we'll be there...

Yard Time BBQ will be there. We are now in Topeka, but originally from the area so we should have a pretty good turn out for a party Friday night. Everyone is invited to our cooksite for a couple cold ones.

Half Smoked it looking forward to the Hays comp. I'm from Hays/Ellis and we had a good 3rd place showing last year behind a couple big dogs so we're super happy with that. We're going to be down one team member, but we have alot of friends coming out. Now if we can only get them to help with the comp instead of drinking all our frosty beverages...

Hey Kev,

Do you want to be in the "party" section or the quieter side?

Capn Kev

Preferably the quiet section. :thumb:

Also, can you post a complete list of teams? I'm just curious to see who all is coming.

We're talking about Hays America....right? There's a quieter side? :confused:

21 team!!! We are so close, c'mon 4 more teams! With it being in the park it should be a very nice competition with lots of tree cover. Let's just hope I don't revert back to my old days of Oktoberfest because I am not sure how much cooking I could have done after all that partying:-D

I lived in Hays for a couple o' years. As long as that bar called "The Home" is not still going, and we're not close by, then ...it should be quiet :becky:

The Home is still open and it could be within walking distance if one wanted to. I was always more a fan of The Q.

Hey Daryl...
Do you have a complete list of the teams (to date) you could post?

Half Smoked
07-13-2010, 11:49 AM
It's the HPC (Home Party Club)! Ha, ha... I'll second whoever said there is no "quiet part" of Hays. I know that last year teams were still going strong at 4am during the comp. I'm getting pumped up! We're not going to partake in the appetizer comp cause we'll be entertaining sponsors and friends, but feel free to come by our camper and say HEY. Always cool talking to BBQ folks.

Yep, looks like we're neighbors. Due to last minute changes, I'm flying solo this week, so at least my camp will be one of the "quiet" ones ;)

See ya then.

Hey Legend11, how big are the lots that are laid out in that pdf? You gotta figure that people will have campers with their smokers on the side of it and not parked side by side kind of how you have it laid out now. I would think that your lots would need to be laid end to end instead of side by side like that. Just saying.

I talked to a team from Salina that did our Ellsworth comp that was thinking of coming, but they told me the other day they can't make it. I'll ask some of the other teams.

Daryl,

Thanks for a great competition. You, Pam, Sabrina all did an excellent job pulling 25 teams together...and some pretty darn good ones too. Smokers Wild, Jay Willies, Up in Smoke... I had a great time. Now, if only we could do away with that heat next year. I had to double check my info, it said 113 on the readout as I was leaving Hays, yet the radio guy said "high of 104". I think it was probably close to 110.

It was great meeting the fellow Brethren from Half Smoked and Bubba's Que Crew. I look forward to hanging with you guys more when I actually have "teammates", and not I'm running around like a beheaded chicken :-P.

See ya'll on the road again soon.

-Kev

Congrats Kev on the two 2nd places and the 5th overall. I felt bad for ya cooking by yourself and suffering in the heat. We pretty much stunk it up, but it's firing us up for the next comp. I'm sure we'll see ya down the road.

It was great meeting both Kevin and the Half Smoked crew.
Kevin, congrats on the two 2nd place calls! Going at it alone in that heat...you gotta be some sort of Iron Man!
Hope to see you guys down the road sometime!
