Default Snowshoe Grilling Challenge, Abington MA. March 29, 2008- NOW a charity event

Hey everyone,
As you may or may not know, Gary and I run the Snowshoe Grilling Challenge in Abington MA. March 29th will be the 15th Annual Snowshoe. I believe it is the longest running NEBS event that is still in existence.

This year we have evolved the Snowshoe into a charity event, benefitting the Abington St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank. We are hoping to do something similiar to the Brethren baskets that everyone so generously donated to Kooker's Kare raffle for the KCBS banquet. If you have a product that you would like to donate for our raffle baskets, please PM me. I am in the process of gathering additional items from local businesses for these raffles too.

Also, I took a suggestion about ice cream and am now working to get a sundae bar together as well. For a donation of a few items for the Food Bank, you will be able to make your own sundae!
How good is that!
This is our way of trying to get the public more involved, and assisting a great organization in feeding hungry families.

I GREATLY appreciate any help with this...
....this organizing stuff is hard work!
Well worth it though, well worth it.

Thanks !!!


p.s. anyone coming from 'far out' SHOULD take advantage of the KCBS hotel discount... there is a Comfort Inn right down the street!


*moderator - I thought this should go in competition... feel free to move it if needed.

Michelle,

Great job again! Your charity work through NEBS makes me so proud to be a member.
You can count on some stuff from Lakeside. Do you want people to mail stuff to you before hand or bring it down on the day of the Snowshoe?

Mike

Thanks to everyone who is helping with this!
And, anyone who wants to donate rubs or sauces, just PM or e-mail me..

The categories are fish (filet or steak), sausage fatty, beef of any kind, and vegetable.
The sausage fatty/fatties and beef must be in six or more identifiable portions.
The fish and vegetable may be entered whole, please provide enough for the 6 judges. Garnish is as follows.

Turn in times:
Fish (filet or steak) - 12:00 KCBS rules & garnish
This means no shellfish or crustaceans, fish only.

Sausage Fatty* - 12:30 KCBS rules & garnish
STUFFING IS ALLOWED – any kind you want.

Beef (of any kind) - 1:00 KCBS rules & garnish

Vegetable** -1:30 OPEN GARNISH**
ONLY VEGETABLES - no meat, poultry, fish or crustaceans in the box.
**Even though the vegetable category is open garnish, we will not be allowing meat,
poultry, crustaceans, or fish of any kind in the box.
No meat…none. This is a “VEGETABLE” category.

*A “fatty” is basically a sausage roll without a casing (think Jimmy Dean). It is made of ground meat
and may be either stuffed with other ingredients, or have ingredients mixed throughout. It can be
pre-seasoned. It may not be pre-cooked or contain pre-cooked ingredients.
No skewers or toothpicks !

What a great time. The folks from New England are just fantastic hosts. Except for one dq'd entry, the day couldn't have been better. It was an awesome contest for my first time. Congrats to Dirty Dick, Dr. Frank and Tammy and everyone else who got called. Our tuna came in something like 6th, and the stuffed mushroom slider was 8th. Our fattie came in 14th. Beef....well......

It was so nice to meet some folks for the first time like Mike from Lakeside Smokers, who were awesome neighbors, and it had been too long since I'd seen the Lunchmeat crew, the Purple Turtles, Ted from Q-Haven, Steve (YankeeBBQ) and Ray from the Anchormen who I didn't get to talk to. Gary, from Pigtrip took a whole bunch of pictures, too. I hope they aren't too incriminating.

I think I might have got the bug, now.....
