I vote Rub Country Smokehouse. Jared has a great space and the Bewely pit is producing some tasty bbq.

Sounds a bit like an advertisement

Let's add Big Ed's to the list.

Real Urban works for me. Either one is 2 1/2 hours, although Vernon Hills seems like a better ride. I got my fancy electronic money waster for the farking tolls............so I can shoot right through.................... I'll be the guy in the BBQ medium BBQ Brethren shirt and a Packer hat.............

Big Ed is a great guy with great BBQ but not sure if he has room at the new location. I can check with him and see if he would be able to accommodate first

Thanks, Bill... Smokin' Deal is going to be in that area today so he is going to check. If he doesn't have time then I may take you up on your offer.

I'm in again this year! I love getting together when it's cold out and looking forward to all the cooking and judging conversations.

I would prefer Jan 18th but probably still make the 26th. I'm ok with the places mentioned.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Scott

Big Eds is the real deal! Cool dude, good food and he has a party room upstairs. Never went up there, so I have no idea how many it will hold. Worth a call.

I forgot all about him having a party room plus he has a bar too which im sure is a plus for some..he could easily accomodate a large group in the party room on the 2nd floor. Also does a lot of other food of those who may not want BBQ

I miss Ed myself. Used to go to his North Chicago location a lot for lunch ( where i consider the BBQ he was pulling off his aquarium smoker some of the best in the area or city). Unfortunately I've only been to his place in Waukegan 2-3 times. I do know he installed a Southern Pride there after the closed the North Chicago location
