I'm going to be riding shotgun with Rich Parker from Michigan to Georgia to pick up his new fancy BBQ trailer. Then we are making the trip over to Gadsden for the contest there on April 13-14. Any Brethren members participating in that one?

This one is getting closer. Anyone else going to be there? This will be my brother's third contest to cook. Okey Dokey Smokey is his team name.

Rich - You can hit Top O'The River. They have some decent seafood.

There is also a Fish Market there. I've been to a couple of these. Sometimes they are hit and miss.
I heard The Fisherman is pretty good, but have never been there.

Have you guys received any info from the organizer? I sent an email a while back about if any of the hotels were offering teams a discount and didn't hear back. But I was expecting some type of communication about where to go and what times you can load in.

When i look up the address to the comp on Google Maps it shows a tiny residential street.

1500 Noccalula Road
Gadsden, Alabama 35904

The park has a nice campground. http://nfcampgrounds.homestead.com/ I have a campsite reserved for Friday night. I don't remember any hotels with discounts. Best thing would be to call Janet Tarrance 256-549-4663. They do better with phone calls than email. Hope to meet you there.

Gadsden's not exactly close to the coast...I'd look for catfish joints.
