Tim and I have been working over the last couple of weeks to organize a FL team

Plans are for an October 1-2 debut with a followup in November at a KCBS cookoff.

We're working on some ideas to promote our team and the connection with the Brethren.

I apologize for jumping the gun on the pictures and thus letting this thread get hijacked.

Thanks.

We're working on checklists, etc. at this time. I'm "practicing" with different cook times, seasonings, etc.

We're going in as low budget as we can -- no new cookers, etc. But with the Studabaker Bandera, my horizontal, ECB, and grill we should be able to get things done.

Already have a portable cookstove and such so outside of collecting some cleaning tubs and supplies between now and October we should be doing ok. We've already got blenders, food processors, etc. and we'll have at least one of our RVs there as support vehicle.

Anne and I are doing a judges class and new team seminar over the Labor Day weekend sponsored by the FL BBQ Association (FBA). We also get to judge the Fun Fest cookoff so we'll get certified that same weekend. Ought to come away with quite a bit of info from the seminar and judges training. Also, this is s Fun cookoff with no team of the year points at risk but all the "big" teams from FL will be there since it's also the annual association business meeting.

That should set us up for the October cookoff -- we'll see, won't we? :D
Matter of fact I've got a batch of chicken thighs on the NB horizontal right now -- cooking them for a staff meeting/lunch tomorrow.

I think we're going to have a pretty nice presence when we finally "go public" -- hope so!! I want this to work real bad!!

Well, Shucks. The cat is out of the bag!

I was hoping for the ability to "slink quietly into the night" if things went too far South at Mulberry :oops:
DF fixed that right up.
All I bring to the table on this venture is my obsession with temp control and quality smoke, produced by quality wood.

And, Brothers, I learned all of that right here! Thank You!!!!!!

DF be the master chef here--I just say "yes sir" and hit the temp he wants with "clear blue" from the OAK woodpile!
Oh yeah, I can wash dishes if my "Pit Bitch" duties allow me to be distracted for a few minutes. Just gotta be real careful with my focus here :lol:
I'm a simple kind of guy! But, that just may be the ticket- time will tell.

I just gotta figure out the "staying awake from Midnight to Turn-In part".
XM Radio and adreleline may do the trick.
Can always sleep another day!

Anyway, the pressure is really on now--don't want to embarrass the Brethren (or DF or me):D
Yeah, I am breathing slowly (sometimes). But, it sure is hard not to be pumped!

And to think that in Feb of this year, I was just "pondering" a smoker and trying to pick the right one.
The Bandera (now the StudeDera) and I have come light years in so little time :lol:

Thanks, Dudes and DudeEttes

TIM
ps--my thanks to TK for the expanation of "Pit Bitch" in his 1000th post. He is the ruling National Brethren "Pit Bitch". I just claim the Southern Regional Title unless I screw it up royally! Thanks, TK

pss--Anyone know how to slow down DF? Hell, he is calculating mileage to Memphis (501.1 from here-but who is counting). Gotta love the guy!!!!! Wild ride coming!

20-30 mph wind gusts and a smoker constantly jumping from 210*-280* took care of it for me. I don't wish you the bad weather, but it sure made the night go really quick! LOL LOL

I have a team name suggestion. "A Little Diesel". Everyone always wants to know what the secret ingredient is, when they ask you can just point to the sign and smile :D

Scott,
Actually, David and I have a correct and classy answer to the "secret sh*t" questions.
"If" we need to use it (please Lord, give us a reason), it will get passed on.
Thanks,
TIM
