Just wondering if any of ya'll know anything about the 'Q festival this weekend in Nashville. :clap2:

I know there's a contest, and the public is invited to sample from and meet the competitors after the contest. Also, Lee Roy Parnell is opening for Delbert McClinton, so there's gonna be some of that good ole homemade stew of countryfied soulful blues.:thumb:

Me and the Mrs. is gonna be taking a little time on the town, staying in a condo over there somewhere, and I've got a gig Friday night, but after that we're open, so we'll definately check out the festival. If you're anywhere to being within a decent drive, I'd come on down. Folks say it's a hoot and the weather's gonna be great! I've never been able to go, so this year'll be my first.:-D

Lived here for about 15 yrs now, and both my wife and I grew up on the Mississippi gulf coast.

We just had the Wilson County fair, the state's most awarding winning fair, and I'd give it an award if they'd move it to October like the ones in MS.:confused: It was HOT last week! Thankfully, the weather is supposed to be fantastic this weekend for the BBQ festival.

Are the pros cooking Saturday too, and do you know what time they're done? We're gonna only be up there Sat afternoon, and maybe for the concert that night with LeeRoy and Delbert.

Oh yeah, there's still some whittlin' goin' on, but the place has grown at an ungodly rate. You wouldn't believe the traffic, and Mt. Juliet is even worse. I believe they were listed as the fastest growing city in the country, maybe a yr or two ago. Nashville is steadily encroaching east.

Anyone compete in this contest before? I'm starting to sign up for some contests down South for late summer and it seems like a good one.

Talk about an old thread. I competed in this one two years ago as you can tell by my posts:) I haven't returned since and have no plans to ever attend this one again. Let's say I did not have a good experience.

EDIT: If you're looking for something in this part of the country in that time frame, I would recommend The Cookeville Cooke Off. It was Tony Stone's competition and is run very, very well. We'll be back.

EDIT #2: For Clint, last year BBQ TV was in Cookeville last year. That might sway your vote:)

You're moving to Shelby County? (Happy?) When are you moving? The big one is in early June. I know, because I was looking recently, that before Cookeville there's one in Cape and another one in Ashland, MS. Both of those should be pretty close.

Right after Winchester, I was about to post my reasons, and I was asked to refrain from doing so for now. I do intend to post them, but I am respecting the request of others. Sorry to be so cryptic:(

Guerry is right. I'm moving to Germantown specifically. I'll be down for Memphis In May then driving the competition trailer and the family down for good June 22nd. Looking forward to a change of scenery!
