Default Memphis In May Report

My wife surprised me with 3 nights in Memphis for a valentines day present. We left Ankeny about 9:30m and got here about 9pm. Stopped for lunch in Hannibal, MO. Checked in, freshened up and took off for the contest site. We tried to make the rounds of the brethern. First was the Bastey Boys, no Sully he was off somewhere else. Next was Pellet Envy, no one home either. Stopped to visit the Resivour Hogs only to find out it was a different team with the same name. Once we started talking and they knew we weren't there to freeload off them, they were real cool and offered us food and drink. I was carrying around a bottle of rye whiskey so we had a couple shots. Our next stop was the Danish national team. A friend of a friend type deal. We hung out with them for a good 2 hours, they were really friendly. We talked a lot of barbeque and they fed us brisket sandwiches, that were very good. They are sponsered by Weber, so they had all kinds of cool toys. A guy from the next spot comes over and sat with us, by this time the whiskey, beers and wine were flowing. He really liked the whiskey. We were talked pits and my buddy on the Danish team wants to show me the one next door (team Norway). Man, it was nice. Sinks, storage, insulated, dish receiver and flat screen mounted to it. I walked around the back of it and see it's a Klose pit. I tell him its damn nice and Klose makes good pits. He says you know the owner, don't you. i reply nope never met him. He grins and says you've been drinking with him for the last hour. Wow, its a small world, I didn't recognize him, no cowboy hat. I got my pic with him and we taked some more. All in all a great evening. We plan to go back tomorrow.

Not going to be able to make it to MIM this year (been there about 10 of the last 15 years).

If you get down there early enough on Friday, you can see the hog teams preparing their hogs.
