Default Dothan, AL FBA Comp (merged)

June 23-24, 2006 Smokin In The Wiregrass Tri-State Barbecue Festival & Concert Dothan, AL (FBA)

Well, I am cookin' this one!!!! YAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I judged Quincy, FL a while back--my wife was there, met some more BBQ folks, and saw how much I enjoyed it.
We got home and she said--out of the blue--"you need to cook badly, just go do Dothan. I will pay the bills"! Gotta love that woman
We have not competed since Feb, so I never looked back from that blank check.

The Dothan event is 31.239721 miles from my house!
Dave is committed to a Washington DC family trip.
But, he is on my "speed dial" Figure to use it a lot!

So--me, the StudeDera, and the WSM are gonna make the trip alone
Wish I had Ferris (Dave's KingFisher), but "back to basics" here. Would take 1200 miles of driving to pick Ferris up and return her

Thought about using a new team name, but figure I am not gonna embarrass the Southern Brethren too bad. "Southern Brother" was considered for a bit
I will have some family volunteer help for cleanup and that is the biggie!

I have no aspirations of greatness--Kevin (HomeBBQ) will be there and that blocks off 5 of the 22 "walks" available. If Jimmy, Rub, Mark, and Mike show up--gonna be a "just for fun" event for me

With "low expectations", I feel a bit free to experiment some. Have a radical idea for chickie white meat cooking and presentation and some other variations I may try under "combat BBQ" conditions.
Couple of test cooks scheduled next week!

Gonna be fun if nothing else.

And, I just gotta cook and compete !!!!!!!!
Going crazy!!!!

Good Luck Kapn.... I'm sure you'll do great and serve the Southern Brethren team name well as usual.... That will be the same two days as the bash in NY so be sure to keep a cell phone handy and provide an update or two as the contest unfolds...

If you went with a new name for the show, call it your planned style "Combat BBQ" !!!

Sorry if I missed it Kap'n, but what's your team name? I'll come by and speak Friday. I'll be there early. I live about 3 hrs. away, but I plan on staying at my folks house in Chipley the night before. On another note, they have had a greater response than anticipated (42 pro teams and 20 or so BY) and they need judges for this FBA event. They are offering a judging school starting at 6:30 Fri. evening to help with this if anyone's interested.

Tim,Forrest and Greg, looking forward to having you in Dothan. The reason we need more Judges is because the # of Teams has exceded our expectations for a first year contest and now we are playing catch up to get enough Judges at the last minute. We will have a Judging class on Friday night the 23rd of June and the contest is Saturday the 24th. There has got to be some of you within driving distance that could make the trip and Judge and get to eat some Great BBQ.

Hoochie--"Southern Brethren" is the team name.
No banners or anything--lurk mode this time

This is a big inaugural event and shows the need (I hope) for more events in the local area.

Walt...Will the "prospective" judges that attend the judges school on Friday be eligible to judge on Saturday?

Yes! That's always the case - especially when FBA is scrambling for judges. It's a good deal since there are a lot of FBA contests around and they are trying to get more up in the panhandle.

The FBA and KCBS rules are very very similar (garnish is the one major difference) and so if you should get a chance to take a KCBS class you'd feel quite comfortable.

Ditto to what Dave said. Its not that the FBA does not have enough Judges that are certified. Its a combination of that most of them are a long distance from us and the fact that the Dothan contest has far exceded the number of teams that anybody expected and a good portion of the teams signed up after June 1st which puts us in a crunch getting more Judges at the last minute.

Yeah, I know what your'e saying....The reason I asked is cause I have a couple of people that I was going to encourage to take the class. I didn't know if they'd be eligible to judge the next day or not or have to wait for another contest. These folks are local so if they'll do it it'd be good for the Dothan contest and also the one in Pnanma City in March. With you doing such a good job in putting this thing together and getting it going there's liable to be more FBA events spring up in the panhandle, that'd be good I think.

You said that there's been more entries come in after June 1st...I'm sure that they want as many entries as possible and all but wasn't June 1 the deadline for entry?

As a general rule, if they aren't maxed out almost all contests allow entry right up until it starts. Some teams are notoriously slow at registering...a four week cutoff wouldn't be realistic. Some do charge higher fees the closer the date is and earlier registration will sometimes allow for better site placement.

I understand...I have seen late entry fees or a higher fee after the deadline for some contests. I assumed that if there wasn't a late entry fee advertised the deadline meant no more entries. I tend to get messed up or in trouble with my assumptions sometimes.

Forrest June first was the deadline for the cheaper entry fee after that it went up so we were surprised that so many came in after that. Yes if they take the coarse Friday they can Judge Saturday

Thanks Walt...I'll pass that on.

I'm figuring on being up there Thursday evening if you need me for anything and Friday morning to set up and help out. I'll probably be talking to you some between now and then.
