Looks like a strong 27 teams. Hoping to make this one just not sure yet. Anyone need a dishwasher/pit biotch?

Pat you're welcome in our tent anytime. But no biotch's in our site ... just drunks. :-)

Joe, I hosed the BWS right there by the horse barn. Mopped the trailer floor before loading and the only thing to come out of the trailer were dishes and coolers.

Well, I was on the fence on this one, but now that I know Doug is going to be there I'm sure not to get any DALs - so I'll see you guys on Friday :). I think my wife might come along too. She thinks I'm really good at BBQ - I haven't had the heart to tell her I suck. So please keep that to yourselves...

All right Monty ... GAME ON!
Is the bet for over all or a category?
I think the loser should have to eat some of his own BBQ!

P.S. I'd rather have my wife like my food, than contest judges.

I cook chicken and brisket - so let's limit things to those categories. You won't be much more than a light snack for me in chicken, so for your sake I'd suggest brisket :heh: :boxing: :cool:

Bottle of whiskey for the winner?

Balls Casten
08-29-2010, 09:14 PM
As much as I dont like betting against someone who has God on there side. It is a double blind turn in right?

Bottle of "10 High"?

Ryan, can we stay saturday night? Or do we have to get off the street.

Although I'm not one to hand out contest tips ...
In my chicken bet with Nate, I was figuring he had been on a roll and was due for a down day. I was right he had a down day and finished in the lower half. BUT! We also recieved our worst score in 2 years, a 149!
Nate jinked us ... or called in God or something. My tip to you ... dont bet with Nate.

Ryann, great job with the contest. Parking, trash, water, morning coffee, etc., etc everything was great, thx

Congrats to Tippy Canoe on GC

I won't be cooking at the Royal - work schedule is too tight. Jeff will be there, though, and I may come for a day.

I'll start saving and we should do Cask 16 next time!

Sorry i didn't say "goodbye til next year" to the 72 crew. It looked like you had a bunch of family and I didn't want to intrude - so....Goodbye til next year!

I think you are right about the contest. I can't think of a single thing I would change (except get some farking judges who know good chicken when they taste it!):heh:

If it's on the schedule I'll be sending my check in next year for sure.:thumb:
