All Right! The time is fast approaching for Chest to Chest and the Central Kansas BBQ Cookoff 1 & 2. Who is headed this way?

Thursday evening, Sept 2, the Chest to Chest cooks meeting will be catered by 4 Legs Up BBQ Restaurant, with Kelly & Roni Wertz sponsoring a Prime Rib dinner for the Chest to Chest contestants.

Friday Sept. 3 will have the Chest to Chest judging that early evening, 6 to 7 pm. Prize money is $3,000.00 winner take all, and of course the much desired trophy, the Bull Peni$ Walking Stick.

Saturday Sept. 4 will be the KCBS 4 meats contest, and ancillaries Anything Beef and Dessert.

Sunday Sept. 4 will be another KCBS contest with the standard 4 meat categories.

Entry fee will be as follows:
Both Saturday and Sunday contests entry is $375, this is for all categories including ancillary. If you only want to cook for one day of the contest the entry fee will be $275.

Prize Money:
$2000 for Grand Champion
$1000 for Reserve Champion
$200 for 1st place each category (including ancillary)
$150 for 2nd place
$100 for 3rd and 4th place
$50 for 5th thru 10th place

Ribbons for 1st thru 5th places.

The awards are for each contest so if you are Grand Champion both days you get $4000.

The Fair Board is planning on having a hamburger feed for all the teams Saturday evening, with the cooks potlucking a salad, vegetable, or dessert. Plus if we can get a sponsor, free beer.

Those with RV's can come early and stay late with no extra charge, we do ask that you let us know what type (how big) an RV so we can park you for the best fit.

We have set up a new e-mail address just for contest questions, centralkansasbbq@gmail.com . You can also call Kent at 620 793-2985. He may be on the tractor or moving irrigation pipe so he will try to return any calls when he can. The website is www.centralkansasbbq.com . The entry form is available on the website and a complete payout breakdown.

I will be one of the guys doing the meat inspections, so I hope to get to meet everyone. This will be a great contest and there is plenty of room so get signed up and we will see you soon!

You qualified by winning the Royal (and maybe GAB).

My application went in last week.

Is the Chest to Chest going to change? I had heard rumors this summer about doing it differently.

That's what I figured... he left the Pleasant Hill contest off that list. If that's the current accurate list, it's not right! Scott Stanley of Wild Blue qualified for the brisket win at Pleasant Hill last year. I was told twice by Kent that our 2009 and 2010 winners will qualify in 2010 and 2011 respectively. Why am I not surprised?

If I read the qualifying spreadsheets right, we qualified this year with the 09 AR GC. We qualified for the 2011 C2C with the GAB Invite Brisket 1st place.

I have been hounding Kent to send me the spreadsheet so I can update it, and get it posted here. The website for the 2010 qualifiers is not corrected, I'm also working on getting that from him. He is currently picking corn, so hopefully it should only be a few more days.

It will depend on the number of teams competing in Chest to Chest. If we have 20 or less it will "MOST LIKELY" be the same as 2009. More teams would "PROBABLY" require a different judging process. Kent will let the teams decide at the Chest to Chest cooks meeting on Thursday Sept 2.

I don't see that it is on the list, if you know the organizer have him contact Kent Romine to discuss getting added. Kent sent me the spreadsheet with the qualifiers, I want to review it then I will post the 2010 list and also the 2011 list so far.

This is just a thought. What's the ruling on this? We have already commited to cook locally that weekend and will have to miss the C2C. Can we have Bob's buddy, who has cooked with us a few times, cook the C2C under the Boondoggle name? We don't want to infringe on the "can't compete in 2 places under the same name, at the same time rule". he would not cook the 2 KCBS under our name.

Andy cooked as Pork Pullin Plowboys last year at the C2C since I was at the Butt to Butt. As long as you feel like the guy can really be considered a "Boondoggle Boy", I'd say go for it. In our case, Andy and I cooked several contests together before C2C.

He cooked with us one year at the Royal, the World Pork Expo and teamed with Bobby to win GC at Racing for the BBQ, so I think he fits that description.

I will contact Kent to get an official ruling. I think if you consider him as a member of your team, it would be ok. Then he could cook for the KCBS contests under his own name, or as Boondoggle's Buddy. :grin:

C2C is a invitational so you should be fine, but I'm not certain

For DMDon and Boondoggle, if you have a teammate come cook the Chest to Chest and they win, Boondoggle BBQ will have the automatic entry for the future. You will have to decide who gets the bull peni$ walking stick, but be careful, everyone will want to touch it! :shock:

I was told by KCBS that if I wanted to have someone cook Excelsior Springs as Big Creek BBQ, I'd have to cook the Sam's Club Invitational under "Big Creek BBQ Missouri" or something of the sort. Trouble is, we qualified for the invitational as Big Creek BBQ so we really could not change. However, the Invitationals are sanctioned events. C2C is in no way, shape or form a KCBS event so I wouldn't think there would be a problem with that situation.

RobKC
08-19-2010, 02:37 PM
Yeah, I don't see how they could allow a team to cook the Sam's Club Invitational and a points contest the same weekend. Team A would have to cook the invitational they were invited to cook and then Team A-Missouri could cook the points contest. I wouldn't think Team A-Missouri would be allowed in the invitational.

Plus, C2C is on a different day than the other contests so the rule would not apply.

Probably just me, but I wont make it in until 9 or 10. I'm sure Kelly's Prime Rib won't make it that long. LOL

If anyone will be cooking the Central Kansas BBQ contest by themselves and would like to have a box runner, my 14 year old daughter has volunteered to help. She is going to ask a few of her friends to help also, so let me know if you would like a runner and I will see what I can line up.

Also, I have heard a few teams say the entry fee is too high for our contest. Just remember the $375 is for TWO complete KCBS contests with 2 ancillary categories with the same prize money. That is only $187.50 each contest with free electric, free ice, and 2 t-shirts. And it won't cost you any gas money for the 2nd contest. :grin:

Kent also has storage space available if anyone will be cooking at McPherson or Garden City the weekend before and would like to drop off their trailer or smoker so they don't have to haul it back and forth.

I had a really good time with Smoke on Wheels last year. Great event. The dinner Kelly Wertz does for the C2C cooks isn't something that you want to miss if you've qualified. Being able to do two additional contests but having to set up once, and pack up once is another bonus.

Someone (me maybe?) will make sure to be there. Kent was talking about sleeping at the contest but I'm not sure what nights. I will make sure to accomodate you, I am glad you're able to make it! I think earlier Kosmo was planning to arrive later on Thursday and wanted some Prime Rib saved for him, how about you?

I just got home from helping Audrey with a catering job and a Cub Scout meeting. We haven't unpacked yet and I have nothing ready for the contest. Looks like I won't arrive until Friday morning. I may or may not cook Chest to Chest. I'll decide once I get there if that's okay.

Chest to Chest turn-in time is 7:00 pm. Hopefully that will give you time for a hot & fast if nothing else. There is supposed to be help available for setting up if you need it. Are you coming alone? I have 2 young ladies available for Saturday to run boxes if you would like, only 1 can be there Sunday. They will be assigned to whoever asks first.

When we had our committee meeting last Sunday the numbers were not as high as we had hoped. Hopefully a lot of teams were waiting till the last minute. We are planning on 12 to 15 teams for the Chest to Chest, and I hope at least another 20+ for contests 1 & 2. Rumor has it that Cool Smoke is driving in from Virginia to compete. He qualified for Chest to Chest, so I hope he makes it.
