Smile Practice Run this weekend...SE Wisconsin Anyone want to play practice judge?

About a month away from my first competition....

I am having my first full on practice smoke this Sunday (5/15/2011). I have invited friends and family and if the weather co-operates I there will be 20 ~ 30 people!

None of whom will be able to give me a competition perspective.

I have a camp site and picnic spot reserved in Racine very close to the Kenosha border. I have told people that I will be serving at 12:30pm.

If you are in this area, have the time and are willing, stop by and introduce yourself. I would be happy to have you play judge and help me eat some of the 40 pounds of meat I will be smoking.

SeeYa

I think you meant SE Wisconsin, didn't you?

Sorry, won't be able to come assist, but I have a feeling you'll be in Montello in a month. I'll be there. Look us up!

Sounds like a fun opportunity! We're heading to Southern Illinois for a competition so we won't make it. Good luck!

I am not a comp guy, but should you be serving 20-30 people if you are really trying to get your timing/accuracy down for turn-ins?

I had no idea you cooked that much during a comp, but I guess it makes sense to have an abundance to cherry pick from.

I am going to have 2 whole packers, 2 pork shoulders, 24 chicken thighs and 6 slabs of ribs. The amount of ribs and thighs has to do with how many are in the pack.

How does that compare to what the rest of you bring to a competition?

I live in Racine! My house is just a couple blocks north of the top of that map, so you'll be under 10 minutes away from me. That said, I've never done the comp thing, so I wouldn't be much help in giving any sort of judge-ly opinion!

I'd definitely love to stop by and say hi. I'll have to check the schedule since my wife is in a musical here in town and I think I'm supposed to go to the matinee that afternoon with her parents. I'll let you know though. Thanks for the offer.

That's pretty close to what we cook at a comp.
