There will probably be over 60 teams there. I plan on getting there Thursday night in my normal spot.

Captain Ron's Brew-n-Que.

Shannon is a fun competition. Lots of top notch teams come to Shannon including the 10 teams in the Butt-to-Butt competition. Mike and Theresa Lake do a great job and make everyone feel welcome.

Please stop by and introduce yourself of we don't find you first!

We won't be making this one this year, but a word to those who are doing it for the first time. Be sure you have everything you need! There isn't a lot of nearby shopping! Shannon is an awesome contest! Lots of great teams from all over the country!

Although, last year it seemed a few people found places to buy new EZ-Ups the morning of turn in

Good luck to all!

Hey Guys. I haven't gotten permission yet from the boss, but I would love to come out and just witness a bbq competition. I've never been to one before and have really only fired up the smoker about 10 times total. I think it would be a blast and would help out anybody however I could. What are the rules on attending and would anyone mind having a newbie hang around?

Thanks,

Mike

We'll miss you! Good point on shopping. There is a Casey's in town for ice, beer and soda, but for anything else you have to go to Freeport (about 30 minutes). There is a Walmart and large grocery stores there.

We'd love to meet you if you can make it, Mike. There really aren't any rules for attending. The public is welcome. Friday night is best for hanging out since the teams aren't as busy (but we still do some prep work and cooking, so if someone isn't available to talk please respect that). Saturday can be very busy, especially after 11:00AM so a lot of teams won't have much time to hang out, but we can usually work in a few minutes depending on each team's cooking schedule.

I'll be rolling in solo Thursday afternoon. My most anticipated contest of the year. If I wasn't the first person signed up... I was close.
