I'm assuming he is coming in as a customer and not a competition team. The teams are in a side parking lot on the outside of the event. I'll be there with team "My Cousin Piggy". It's not my regular team. Just something a few of us threw together.

There are two sessions: Friday and Saturday. You can buy tickets to either day or one for both. Crazy thing is all of the beer and bourbon (vodka, tequila, scotch, whiskey, jager etc.) you want are included in your ticket price but you have to pay for food.

In my opinion, the Friday night session (6pm-10pm) is the better of the two. Same setup drink wise on both days but there are fewer people and you get a plate of food on Friday night. The evening brings some relief from the hot temps and the smaller crowd is great.

Saturday has two tickets. One is a VIP ticket that is for 12-6 and the regular session ticket is for 2-6. Food is not included on Saturday but they do have vendors. A ton more people. He will notice the difference if he has a VIP ticket. You don't need a watch to know when 2pm comes around. You'll just see all the lines get longer. As far as the heat goes, it can get miserable. Think about doing shots at 1-3pm with the sun beating down on you. Bad combination if you aren't careful. I've seen a few people get crazy and do face plants! Very important to stay hydrated!

By the way tell him to make sure the swivel for his neck is in good working condition because there is some talent walking around this event.

Final piece of advice - tell him to have a DD or get a cab. The place is crawling with cops ready to pull people over.

It is NCBS. Only 3 meats: pork, ribs and chicken. From what I understand, they will have 20 teams competing.

Last year was my first year competing in this event. It was very disorganized from the NCBS side. I've decided to give it another shot mainly because it is about 15 miles from my house. I'm hoping it is better this year so I continue competing in it. In fact, it was so disorganized last year that my regular teammates did not want to do it this year. That is why I'm entering under a different team name with new teammates.

I'll be there also. Looking forward to it I just hope they have the bugs from last year worked out. My first concern already is that we can't even arrive to set up til 6pm. Gonna be rushed just trying to set up, get meat inspected, prep, etc.

You got it Tom.

Like I mentioned above, I'll be with "My Cousin Piggy" not my normal team "Dancing Moose BBQ".

It will be good seeing you again.

George

Oh really? Wow, I haven't received any emails or anything from them since maybe March when I signed up. Is there anything else? I sent her an email to see if she can get me some updates. Thanks!

Send me a PM with your email and I'll forward the email I received. It has a copy of the rules and a picture of the team spaces. Spaces are assigned on a first come first serve basis.

Brisket isn't my problem, now if I could find a comp without chicken life would be good.
