I'm curious about this post. Why do you think burgers are "pointless" for Kids Que? I thought the motive behind Kids Que was to encourage youngsters to cook something on a grill that wasn't too intimidating, and burgers seem like they would be accessible to even the youngest kids.

I'm not busting on you here, just wondering why you think this way as an organizer considering adding Kids Que to an event next year.

i agree, we thought burgers were good for the kids to get familiar with the cooking process.

Friends of georgia mountain vol. fire/rescue page, or you can find it from my facebook page. (brandon brown) .

as far as locals running the event. well that would be me. i already have about 10 judges, looking for several more. we will have score sheets and make formal winner announcements on the stage before the free concert. right now we are accepting teams, but my question is, are we starting too early for an october event?
The Alabama BBQ Association website is www.alabamabbqassociation.com. I definitely think it would be worth your time to try and get Smoke on the River on the Trail. It will also probably bring in more backyard teams too since only the competitions on the trail contribute to teams' overall state standings.

Yep, we will be there. Just moved to Guntersville this past Jan. and we will spend the rest of our lives there. What a great place and great people!

I'm flying back from Vermont tomorrow just to get ready.

I was going to enter my Classic Ferrari in the car show that goes along with the comp, but it doesn't look like it will be ready in time.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
