I know it's close to the date, but Peoria, IL is holding it's annual Rib Fest, Oct 2nd. Anyone going?

I entered for the first time. My first BBQ comp alone- even though it's just ribs and non-sanctioned...I'm still wondering what in the world I got myself into.

I don't have a lot of experience with ribs, although several Brethren have given me some (what I hope is) great advice :-P

I will be taking my Big Steel Keg and WSM. I'm thinking of maybe using maple instead of apple or cherry. Anyone have thoughts on this? Or any other helpful hints.

Thanks.

Dan, I just looked it up. I think I am going to enter. Which division did you enter and do you know the difference in divisions?

Hey Ken,

NOOOOOO. I don't need more competition!!!! :hand::shocked::shock:

I entered the backyard division and if you looked up the website, you know at least as much about it as I do. I have sent several emails asking questions, such as will there be electricity on site, how early may we set up, etc. and have not heard back.

If you do enter, look for me (us?) - I'll have my Brethren banner and our logo displayed.

Blessings!

Yeah, Ken - please let me know, so I know whether or not to look for ya. Ummm...I guess you missed the joke - you're not allowed to use WOOD, as it's in a Peoria park - gas only... :wink:

Ken, lest anyone think I was trying to mislead you - I think you figured it out, but you don't really have to use a gasser...but you do have to boil your ribs first :) LOL

JD - I'm trying your secret recipe today, but I couldn't find cat urine, so I'm going with dog. You Northern folk sure like strange stuff...but...as long as it wins, I'm okay with it. :)
