I don't. Are you talking city-area or upstate? The storm in buffalo would of been interesting contest conditions.

If by NY you mean the NYC Metro area, the weather could be fine.

Buffalo and 2 feet of snow would put a damper on things though.

If you pack enough snow around your cooking chamber, it actually acts as an insulator :-)

That's funny! I was just watching the news last night and they were covering the Buffalo blizzard and I thought it would have been a feat in survival to have had to cook a contest THERE this weekend!

You know one thing I have learned about BBQers. That it is never "to late" to have a contest..... Andy(HoDeDo) and Wayne(MoKanMeatheads) did a contest in the middle of Febuary in Kansas. The high was 4 degrees!!!! It was called the Polar Swine.

I my opinion they were nuts!!!! You will never see me outdoors cooking when it is that cold.

If it's 4 degrees out and I need BBQ, I call Willie B's and tell him to send over one of the girls with some food.

I guess October might be a little chilly at night but hey, thats what we got the cookers for.

Oct in NY? Too late nah its never too late. Hell I do some of my best cooking in the parking lot of Giants Stadium in January.
I would rather have a chill in the air as I stand next to a fire than have it 80 and humid.
What you do have to watch out for is those damn dry leaves, witches and ghosts in October.

I was actually thinking about that just before we left for Oinktoberfest (Clarence, NY is SO close to Buffalo) the first wknd of October. They had said that there had been sleet there before, so we were prepared for it, but, thankfully, it waited until now.

I don't believe it is ever too late too BBQ. We do it all year long too, just shovel a path to the Backwoods... or whatever. The Snowshoe in MA had a high of about 37 degress this past March. We just had to remind our judges that the food doesn't HAVE to be hot...

I had food that was hotter there in the middle of March then at contests in the middle of July. Go figure.

What's the date of the Snowshoe this year Michelle?
