Aye, just hooked my new trailer with the new smoker to the motorhome for tomorrow's first cook of the year.

You too will be doing this soon. It's a sickness. You have been warned.

Couldn't agree more and best of luck this weekend. Make sure to let the Brethren know how well you did when all the smoke clears.

It's fun for me to anticipate it.. Get there, get set up and hang out with freinds. But come Friday during meat prep, it is what I call not fun. It's all business from then on until the cleaning is done around 2:30 saturday. Fun isn't the right word for me during that time.. Maybe enjoyable, doing something I love, and competiting with some of the best out there. If I want to do something fun for the entire weekend, I'd save my $800 and do something else.

You didn't leave much room for improvement with that top ten in Slidell. Hope you get your name called this time bro!

Good luck y'all.

Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
