Everyone sleeps indoors Doug, they have a pole barn where you can set up inside. You put your trailer and cookers outside, and hang inside where it's warm...my kind o' contest. :-D

We'll see you there!

I didnt know that, how much room do you get inside?
We normally entertain customers friday night. Can anyone get inside?
We've got a toy hauler so cook wise we're OK but that does sound fun.

The teams that set up inside usually have a table or 2 to do their prep work and boxes, etc. They usually have a few chairs around and some set up cots to sleep. How much room you have will depend on how many teams use the indoor setup. Last year with 56 teams there was still plenty of room to roam. Anyone can come inside, we are planning to do a chili supper Friday evening, we would like everyone to bring a quart of chili which we will blend together and serve. Last year there was a keg or two of beer available also. We have an appetizer contest Friday evening, that a lot of the teams make extra and set out for grazing. Friday evening is also the Calcutta auction, so bring cash.

The website is now updated, www.centralkansasbbq.com (http://www.centralkansasbbq.com) . Kent will be cooking breakfast Saturday morning, bacon and eggs, anyone who wants to bring a potluck breakfast item would be appreciated. I hope to see lots of Brethren there!

We had a BBQ committee meeting last night. Kent has 49 teams so far that have indicated they are coming. Of course the weather could change that so we are keeping our fingers crossed. There is plenty of room and with 3 weeks left we hope to have another 10 to 20 teams get signed up.

We are having a judging class on Thursday, Feb. 10 starting at 6pm. If anyone is interested let me know. Kent's plan for the new judges is instead of sending them in to judge, he is pairing them up with cook teams to observe what goes on outside, so they have a better idea of what it takes to prepare and present the meats.

Well, we guess by now you know that we'll be there and looking forward to a very interesting event. So glad Kent asked us to be involved. Looking forward to the CBJ class as well. But actually, we're looking forward to tasting some of Kelly's food!!! Heard he's feeding a few.:thumb:

We're all crossing our fingers that the weather will be like the last few days---high 20's overnight, mid 50's during the day.

Knowing that we are talking about Great Bend. The wind chill could make it a lot, lot worse. That summer contest was 30-40 mph winds. :pray:

Sure will be nice that we have "inside" coverage should the weather turn bad. I guess I just won't be filling my trailer water tank if it's going to be below freezing. :-D

I'm bringing a tent and the FEC-500. Leaving the trailer snowed in where it is at. I may sleep inside, but I'm pitching a tent outside next to the cooker.

Thanks Doug,

I am sure I will forget something--This will be the first time I've/We've competed in nearly a year. Luckily Andy will be there with his horse whip to make sure we stay on task. I always enjoy having the other "Cooks" around, and talking BBQ--it's what's right with the world.

Not sure what it's like out in Ks, but we are getting snow here in Springfield. Had to use the 4 wheel drive to get the Kooker out of the back yard yesterday when it wasn't snowing so the extra isn't helping.

Gusting to 37 out in Great Bend should make it interesting, maybe I will brink a Kite --

The contest is still a go as scheduled!

We had quite a bit of snow and wind, but the highways are mostly clear except where a windbreak caused some drifting. The cooking area is concrete, Kent is working right now on getting the snow cleared. The weather forcast for the next few days is:

Tomorrow: Partly cloudy. Cold. High around 30F. Winds W at 5 to 10 mph.
Tomorrow night: Clear skies. Low 12F. Winds WSW at 5 to 10 mph.
Friday: Plenty of sun. Highs in the low 40s and lows in the low 20s.
Saturday: A few clouds. Highs in the upper 40s and lows in the upper 20s.

I hope everyone that entered will still come, but be safe.
