Default 2008 Winter Burn Off Des Plains Illinois..2/10

Was wondering if anyone is planning on this one or competed in last's years.......whatcha think Bubba and Crewe?? Make it a early start???

Found this on the Illionois BBQ Society Site :


2008 Winter Burn-Off...Mark Your Calendars
The date is finally set. The 2008 Winter Burn-Off, in Des Plaines, is going to happen on Sunday, February 10th at the River Rand Bowling Alley. They had 18 teams last year, already have their Illinois Proclamation from the Governor, and will be shooting to make this fun contest a Jack Daniels Invitational Qualifier.
According to contest organizer Keith Engstrom (KRE Smokers), they are looking for certified judges and will again be using this cook friendly contest as a fundraiser for Albinism.
"So bowling, beer and cooking what more could anyone want?" - Keith Engstrom
To sign up for this contest (cooks and/or judges) contact Keith at
rekengstr@ameritech.net .

We may have the entire A-Team there, as we had some plans for an annual meeting for that Saturday. The good news, we would all be tired. But we all work good under pressure...

Default It'll be a good one...

I cooked it last year...had a great time, met a lot of good people, and didn't freeze too badly. :)

Just to make sure you know...It is NOT a KCBS event. It IS a State Championship, they're working to make it a Jack Qualifier, and will have a lot of heavy hitters both cooking and judging.

Although I probably won't be able to make the contest this year (my bride and I will be celebrating our anniversary on that date), I would HIGHLY recommend doing it. If you're considering...sign-up early...space in the parking lot will be limited.

Carpe 'Que,
Jim Rhino

I think the windchill last year was around -19, but was a beautiful, sunny day! I had on several layers, but didn't have to wear the coveralls I took...turned out to be a very nice day.

Carpe 'Que,
Jim

I'm still thinking about cooking this one solo. That day is my birthday and if I can get everyone to agree to let me win as a birthday present then I'll definitely cook

Seriously, I would love to cook this one. I've tried to make it the last two years but ran into obstacles both times. This year it depends on what the family has in store for me
