That's the same weekend as Haines City FL and it's a slightly shorter drive for me. I'll be thinking of all of you and all that snow and cold.

Nope. All of our stuff is in the trailer which is in storage for the winter. If I am in town I'll stop by to see if I can help or just to hassle folks :)

What is the limit on boots????? Or is it different for guns and bows????

Maybe a pair of waders would work. I have a set that both of you could fit in together. LOL

You guys are killing me!!!

Seriously. Hard to find boots for a woman with size 4 feet, at least good warm ones! Jeff and Ron, are you guys planning on judging or just hanging out?

FYI: For those interested in the chili comp part. they asked for 20$ per entry, 4 qts. per entry, and you need to bring a ladle or spoon. They will be setting up chafing dishes and providing small cups/bowls and spoons for those who pay to judge the chili

Divemaster
01-19-2011, 02:58 PM
If they need judges, I'll (and maybe Ramona too) would judge... Other wise, we'll just hang out and laugh....

Check in starts at 6AM. All in one day, turn in KCBS style, probably 15-20 teams. Categories are chicken, sausage (link, fatties, whatever) ribs, and pork loin/tenderloin. The said either a year or two ago and settled on tenderloin I think. One year, they did chicken ribs, tenderloin, and brisket...but I think too many folks complained.

People only complained because it was -30... Not sure what the problem was. I was sweating in my RV...

Yeah, Scottie's right. It was so cold I saw one team with a bottle of Jack that they just bought that day turn into a slushie:shock:

We ventured out a couple of times to say hi to a couple teams, but opted to judge that year. I think that's the first time we met Tonto and Bud.

The next year we cooked it. It's a lot of fun, and for a good cause, so why not?

Scottie
01-26-2011, 03:32 PM
Only other time I have had slushy Jack is when I got a big block of Dry Ice and made a Clonesicle. It was delicious. But I don't need to be in conditions that are just as cold as a chunk of dry ice and that was about the temps that year...

Stoke&Smoke
01-26-2011, 04:18 PM
Yup! That was the year smoke hunters had the flat on their smoker trailer and got there late and did a 3 hour briskie, and Dr Chuckie drove in all the way from MI and couldn't get into his own trunk! The wind that day just made it worse!

This is a fun competition for a good cause. I judged two years ago and cooked last year. Unfortunately, it's not looking good for me to cook this year.

Temps were in the mid thirties to (maybe?) low 40's all day. Although we did enjoy a few periods of little to no rain, the bulk of the day saw rain alternating between steady drizzle and downright downpour.

To thier credit (or credit their insanity) 2 teams did the whole thing without any shelter:crazy:

I'm not sure how much money ulitimately went to NOAH, but it looked like a huge success!

There were some perinnial attenders noticeably missing, but it was my understanding that they attended another competitors wedding the day before.

Only two teams were no shows. Actually, 1 and 1/2 as the second team apparently showed up last Saturday, instead of yesterday:icon_shy

The nice folks at Miller Brewing donated 1 keg each of MGD, Lite, and High Life, from which all proceeds went directly to the charity.

Go pro! I think the amateur comp at Westmont is ribs only. You've already gotten experience handling multiple meats. Go for it!
