Default Covered Bridge 'Que, June 15-16, Euharlee GA

Come enjoy a small town contest at its best!

Deep overall payouts, permanent utilities, shade, carefully selected tables of CBJs in the Terrell Jones tradition. State Champ and GBC points event.

GBC events are selling out well in advance in 2012, so please apply online and avoid the pain of missing out. More at http://www.euharlee.com/events_bbq.aspx or jump directly to the Cooks Info doc for all the scoop.

If you're on the fence, ask anyone who was here last year. This year's event will be even better!

Gary...are you coming up again this year? I know you were passing through last year and it may have been more convenient. Kudzu Q will definitely be there again and I hope we'll see you!

The only two comments I received after last year were that the trophies were lame and the Tshirts mundane. Both are being upgraded this time, and the prize money increased from 5K to $7500. Plus we have Budweiser as a sponsor, so beer will be served!

Come on and give us a try y'all. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

We have space laid out for 36, and can fit in maybe 5-6 more depending on how many big rigs we get. I expect we will fill up with no problem.

Last year we had 34, and the trend seems to be that GBC events are maxing out this season.

My goal is not to make Covered Bridge 'Que the biggest show in Georgia, but to make it the best small town contest experience possible for cooks and judges. The City of Euharlee has been very supportive of that mission, so I think everyone who participates will enjoy themselves.

I think the location is really cool. Sort of secluded in the woods feel.

Get 'em in now folks before we sell out!

If you are on the fence, I would go ahead and sign up. It really is a neat contest. Kind of like a bbq contest broke out at a camp ground. Of course you are going to have to beat some of the best BBQ cooks in the country to get your name called.

I'm picking up another batch of payment confirmations from the City tomorrow. We're currently at 26 teams registered total. Looks to be a diverse field with teams from AL, NC, TN and LA as well as GA.

Trophies promise to be extra cool - custom one of a kind artwork by a local artist.

Y'all come!

No, these will be completely unique clay and wood sculptures by Keith Lewis of Rydal, GA. Truly cool, one of a kind trophies!
