I had the chance to go by the comp for a bit this morning. There are 75 teams competing this year. They would more than cover a city block if they were all on one site. It has been cool and dry so far today, so it is helping with team morale. I took a bunch of pics of smokers and (what I find interesting) signs of many of the teams. I'll try to post them this afternoon or evening.
Most are expressing they are having a great time. Just like any competition, you see everything. There are more pellet stoves than ever before. I saw three "JAMBO" cookers, a couple of BGE's, and more home made rigs than you can shake a stick at.
Even if you're like me and have no interest in entering, you meet some really nice people and see some interesting contraptions. I even saw a couple of flying pigs!
