Default Westmont Red White and BBQ 2012

I will be sending out my application tomorrow for the professional and hope to be a judge for the amateurs to pick up some tips.

I do have a few questions regarding the peoples choice contests. How much of each do you have to make for the different categories since I would like to participate in all of them? Can you use a crockpot for the chili when handing it out?

I noticed last year that some of the teams were selling sauce at the booths. Do you need some type of permit to do this if it is professionally bottled?

Is it better to get there on Friday or Saturday?

Thanks,

Rich "Porky Joes" Clifford

When to arrive depends on the size of your setup. I dropped our trailer off on Friday last year because it's easier to get parked.

For chili, two years ago the weather was nice and we went through 5 gallons. Last year the weather was lousy and I probably only went through 2 gallons. I did hear that they are thinking about changing the format for the chili, but nothing has been announced yet.

I also heard from the organizer that they are rearranging the layout to eliminate as much grass as possible. So maybe no mudslides. :)

I'm not 100% sure, Rich. Chris mentioned the lower lot where they had the awards ceremony, but I don't think things are finalized yet.

The lower lot is expanded for the fest area. The only expansion teamsvwill go on street andvthe carnival gets moved farther down the street. There will be less teams on the grass this year. Everything else has not been finalized, like chili, et al. The next committee meeting is in 2 weeks. That's probably as much as I can say.

Let me know if there is anything I can do if you do come in Steph. I have an extra WSM, sorry the Jambo is already being loaned out to this bad ass Texan. But we could probably get whatever you need.
