Default Blues, Views, Westport CT, Sept. 26 & 27th, 2009

Blues, Views BBQ Sept. 26 & 27th, Just wondering what teams are thinking about, We have two contests in CT in a 3 week period. Norwalk BBQ comp is Sept 11-13th. Norwalk will be its first year, whereas it will be Blues/Views Westports 2nd year, will prize $$ be a factor? will you do both? If only one, why that one?

Westport because the entry fee is reasonable for my rig.

To part or not to part: that is the question. Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to part and suffer the slings and arrows of ostentatious brothers or to not part when faced with a sea of dissent, and by compromise end it? To part: to succeed. Forever more: and by succeed to say we win.

Yeah it looks good...but how does it smell?

We have decided to cook Westport and not Norwalk. Norwalk is part of a huge festival and for us, we would prefer the more low key event. I know Norwalk has $22K in prize money, but your BBQ needs to consistently score well for that to be a consideration

We cooked Westport last year, and it was a great event. Looking forward to it, as it is our next contest.

I am doing both, but I am concerned about the size of Norwalk, I also prefer the low key atmosphere. I really enjoyed Westport last year and I am looking forward to the "Pizza" category on Sunday - New this year

I really enjoyed Westport, though as of last night it looks like I can't do it this year due to three scheduling conflicts that weekend.

May look at adding that Seaside Heights contest or Norwalk.

yeah, if I can make it work I will. Its getting tougher to be a one man make-shift team with my brother now in florida full time and relying on side help from random family and friends. If I could find a guy to drive my trailer and setup life would be much easier!

Nah, it's not you. In the words of Motoeric, "it sucks to be [me]". I'm just frustrated. Sled is as hard a worker as a single person team as I am. We worked very hard and had some luck on our side to win the contests we did. I hope I can find a way to come to connecticut.
