Default New to this Sam's thing.....

We are headed to Dallas to cook next weekend, and I'm a Sam's contest virgin. I'm not planning to do anything different than my usual cooking-wise. Any helpful hints otherwise? Looks like Shake & Bake and I will be rolling in about noon Friday.

If it's at all like last year plan on walking a fair distance for water. You may want to fill your fresh water tank before you get there. Also, power was 20A, so AC is problematic. If it's going to be hot you may want a generator to run the AC.

Default My Advice

I have cooked a Sam's contest both last year and this last week in Ocala Fl. Here is what I would tell you. Bring your own water, all that you feel will be needed for the whole weekend. Bring a generator that is checked and working, I used mine for hours last year in Marrietta Ga and this year it was handy to have before they got their unit working.
The one great thing is if you forget something at least the walk is not far !!

Shake and Bake has a toyhauler that we are "sharing". I'm taking an EZ-UP, tables, etc and cooking "next door". We will fill with water when we get close. Thanks!

BTW - It's been years since I've cooked under an EZ up.

What Jeff said (great to meet you by the way, Jeff, you're more than welcome to park my trailer in St Louis)

A generator wouldn't be a bad idea if you are electric dependent. There were hiccups this weekend.

Weather forecast for Friday/Saturday is high 70's day and low 60's at night, probably won't need the AC. Scattered thunderstorms in the area Friday and Saturday with a 20% chance. Depending on where they develope, we may not get any rain. Will update as we get nearer.

Because of traffic patterns in the DFW area, it might make sense to go South on 35W to 30 and then west to get there. I know coming from Plano, I will be using the South Route.

See Ya'll there and should be there sometime Friday AM.

Power does not come on until noon so if you want power early, bring a generator. Get there at 7:30 and grab a coffee so you are ready at8 when Troy starts setting folks up. Break down as soon as cooking is done. You can leave the trailer in the parking lot but you will have to move it to an outside corner. You can also park the trailer Thursday night.
