Other than the Pork judges 4, 5, and 6 it was a very nice contest:doh::-D Only kidding on the judging (that was a special message to Rookie48:-P).

In all seriousness, they did a great job of putting on this contest their first year. The weather was terrible on Friday and many of the smart folks (read not me) spent the afternoon in a storm shelter. They had to cancel all of the public events Friday and I'm sure they took a financial beating for that, however, they brushed it off and were dedicated to making it a good event for the cooks.

They had lots of volunteers, were on the spot with ice, the MnBBQ Society had a nice supper, they had a nice breakfast, picked up garbage, had security (I guess it was run my a police orgnaization so they had a leg up here), and overall I would say they really want to do it right and grow the event for the future.

I heard a couple of complaints about power (lots of 15 amp power) and we didn't have access to water where we were. The awards ceremony was too long...I am amazed at how hard it must be to get this right, at half the comps they read the names so fast you can't hear them all and at the other half they read a name every 5 minutes.:crazy:

We will go back and had a great time...congrats to my fellow Iowan's Bubba Q's and Big Tz...more proof that Iowa BBQ rules the world:becky:

Ray, You Rock. They are just lucky we were'nt there. Wish I could have been there. I Live 1.5 miles from the Comp Site. We were building a Electical Sub-Station for a Wind farm out by Worthington MN.


Great Job again guys!!!!!!!!!!!

Big thanks should go out to Randy Appelgren with the Minnesota BBQ Society. Did a great job taking over the duty of organizing and contacting all the judges and table captains. Well run for a first year contest.

I thought this was a great first year contest as well! It made me realize I have a lot of work to do in the next three weeks to get ready for my first year contest!

Randy Applegren is the man!

Other than the tornado and losing three of my four racks of ribs between the cooker and turn-in prep table, it was an awesome weekend! lol.
