Who is in? I'm trying to talk the wife into cooking this one. It would just be the two of us. A little much through crunch time.
Do you know, can you stay over on the grounds and leave on Sunday?

H*QUE will be there - I enjoy Tom's contest - it was ran well last year. As far as staying over - I don't know - but he's got an email address at http://pacificmobbq.com/ - drop him a line - he's usually pretty good responding.

Looking forward to seeing y'all there!

True Family BBQ will be there. Being our freshmen year, this is another new comp for us. I am looking forward to the shorter drive after Mexico and Glasgow. It will be good to get out an meet more Brethren.

Mr. Kick,
I compete with just my 10 year old son and, no doubt, it is a challenge through crunch time but the worst part for me is after turn-ins. It is good to take a break, but knowing that all of the cleanup ahead that seems to take two or three hours for us while other teams get cleaned up and can pull out right after awards. I am definitely looking to change this for next season.

Looks like it's going to be another hot one.

At least there is no rain in the forecast this year. It was ugly two years ago.

I just put a canopy on the trailer to help stay cool. I'm sure it will be put it to good use.

Unfortunately we will not be attendance, but might come up to check things out. Good luck to all!

Nate - I love that the canopy comes straight out rather than at an angle, so nice.

Nate, you must be seeing a different forecast than us.....the one we saw said 98* with 107* heat index....anyways.....Teresa says it's going to be too hot for just the two of us to do this one, so with a heavy heart, We're going to pass this year.

yeah - I gauge all other comps' heat by Pacific from last year - that was without a doubt the hottest contest I've ever competed at - *WHEW* With Columbia (Boone's Lick) running a close 2nd. This has been a VERY hot summer - I'll be glad to get it over with and get into some fall comps.

Nice job Nate on the awning - those make a LOT of difference - after leveling the trailer - it's one of the first things I get setup. Gotta keep the drinks outta the sun and frosty ya know ;)

NOAA.gov is calling for the following weather - both days sound nice and hot ;(

Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 96.

Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 74.

Saturday: A chance of thunderstorms. Partly cloudy, with a high near 93.

Saturday Night: A chance of thunderstorms. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 70.

I remember Pacific being brutal last year too, but wasn't North Little Rock pretty bad too, or am I confusing comps? Good luck to all the Brethren tomorow. Wish I was there!

This weekend is exactly why we bought the 2007 Hobbi 260. Going to shoot for 70-72 degrees all weekend if I can help it. We are cooking people's choice too.

Please stop by and introduce yourself and I will be out and about saying hi in between too.

Hi "J",
That is called "shigging", and is frowned upon. The right way to learn contest cooking is to either invest labor with a seasoned team by being their pit b*tch, or dive in head first and cook it. I pass this along hoping to save you a possible @ss chewing by a hot, frustrated cook who doesn't care to give up any "free" advice.

Plus, DO NOT look for pointers on Saturday as you may asked to leave in a less than pleasant fashion. Go meet them tonight and enjoy yourself! New cooks are always welcomed, but remember, these guys have close to $1,000 invested in their weekend.

Y'all are better Quers than me... I do not think I could compete in weather like this. Maybe if I had one of those little inflatable kiddie pools under the canopy, and someone to fan me and hand me ice-cold adult beverages I could swing it... Hmmm... I might have to try that next year... :becky:

Did it storm Friday night? We sure wanted to be there, but our A/C at home and my own bed really felt good last night.

Good luck everyone!

stopped by today and looked to be about 35-40 competitors. They said it was a light turn out. Guess it had to do with the heat.

Congratulations to all who walked and a pat on the back to all who competed. It was a hot contest to even judge, much less cook in. Hats off to you all.

Congrats to all who walked. It was a TOUGH contest - lots of great teams and the weather made it that much tougher.

Worst cook of the year for us - lots of things went south - but Tom ran the contest well and we made the best of it. Was fun seeing everyone. We'll see y'all soon!

Wowsa, this was a very hot and humid weekend ... so I am thankful for the grass spaces, the tree line directly to the east, the cool winds on Saturday and all of the teams around me that made it an enjoyable experience.

A special thanks for Jeff Rippelmeyer of Rippel-que for taking charge of the cluster f**k that was the electrical plant and rewired the box correctly so everyone got 20amp rather than 10amp. After that, it was smooth (and cool) cooking.
