We're in! Parsley Lady has to work on Thursday night until 10, so we'll hit the road early on Friday morning and should arrive between 11 and noon (assuming no trailer issues this time).

We'll have a big pot of Roastin' Ronnie's Coffee going by 6:30 on Saturday morning so stop on by. I'll have styrofoam cups but you'll need to provide your own cream or sugar. I'll also have bags of whole bean Roastin' Ronnie's Coffee available for $10/bag. This week I'll have our Fox Valley Blend which is 2/3 Papua New Guinea and 1/3 Rwandan.

This turned out to be a very nice competition. The local Lions club did everything they could to make us welcome. They had dinner for us on Friday evening (burgers, fresh sweet corn and free beer!) and breakfast on Saturday morning (biscuits and gravy, hash browns and a sausage & egg casserole). They also has plenty of volunteers on hand bringing around ice and picking up trash.

There were some electrical issues but they were worse at one end of the field. Hot Rocks had an issue with their FEC, but it didn't stop them from taking 4th overall! :-D I'm sure that the organizers will get those issues worked out for next year. If they want to grow next year they also need to plan the space better. This year folks parked almost anywhere they wanted and it was difficult for the public to find teams when it came time for the People's Choice competition. It was nice, however, because everyone had plenty of space.

We had a chance to see some old friends like Kate and Alex from Dr. Porkenstein, who haven't cooked in the area since last fall. We also met a bunch of new brethren teams like Big JT's, Jay-Are-BQ, Rub Won Out, Hoosier Crawdaddy (who I met earlier this year at the Cancer Sucks Chicago class). For some reason we never had a chance to meet Blue Chip or Lambros. Sorry guys!

We also met some great local folks. David and his son Seth from Hoosier Smokehouse were next to us and we had a lot of fun with them, and we met some local folks who were cooking the Backyard competition who were very nice. one of the ladies even came by during the People's Choice (which Rub Won Out won) and brought her son from California and either his girlfriend or wife. The guys were struggling with their ribs for the backyard comp so she was out visiting :-D. We gave her son a bag of pulled pork and some ribs for later. They didn't have a team name, and I can't remember her name, but I mentioned the Brethren to them and to David from Hoosier Smokehouse. If any of you read this it was great to meet you!

Here are the results... (I highlighted the Brethren teams, but I have a feeling that I missed someone. Let me know and I'll fix it).

Congrats to everyone who heard their name!

I added the top 10 for the Sauce category at the end! Smoky River took first in Sauce! Congrats, gang!

This was a great contest, and I will make sure it is on the schedule for next year.
Ron, it was great to meet you, and I apologize for not getting back there in time to buy a bag of your fantastic coffee.
I did notice one small mistake, however...it was I, Smoky River BBQ, that took first place in sauce. Not that it is a big deal, but I don't get very many firsts..I want this one..haha

Yes Ken (JayAre), it will definitely go down as one of the most unique contests! Learned plenty of new tricks.

Thanks to everyone for the congrats!:becky: We were definitely humbled and surprised by the calls and overall finish!! Capt. Ron's coffee was a huge hit. Bronze Star and JayAre crew were absolutely hilarious. Whole body is sore from laughing.:crazy: Don't know if some of these folks are on here, but Big JT's, Smokin' Joe's (aka Pie Eaters), Hoosier Crawdaddy and Pirates of the Grill are some of the nicest people I've ever come across.:thumb:

Gearing up for French Lick in two weeks. Can't wait to see some of our new buddies again. Well, as long JayAre cleans the dead squirrel out of his air conditioning unit.:sick:
