    As a new member, I just wanted to see if anyone might be attending this event. It is a non sactioned event (practice for next year), but it will be conducted under KCBS rules. My wife and I will be competing, and selling dinner on Saturday evening before the concert. It would be nice to meet fellow smokers!

    The contest is August 11th and 12th. Well have plenty of food, beer, and bourbon if you want to give a hand. Probably boil some mudbugs friday night. PM me if you decide to come on up. Never miss a chance to party with a fellow [email protected]$$.

    On that weekend, Wife and best friend wish to eat at Craig's BBQ http://www.johntedge.com/writing/sou...lly_exerpt.php
    in DeValls Bluff, Ark and continue on to Memphis for some sort of scullduggery :roll: and as it is their birthday trip, I guess I'll let them pick the agenda 8)

    I really need to get to Atlanta though, I want some Shrimp and Chicken Hunan from The North China Restaurant at the corner of Jimmy Carter Blvd and Rockbridge Rd. It is the best S-it in the world.

    Yeah, we'll be cooking. You can help if you want, or just sit around and drink beer... If I had known you and the wife were coming, I'd have had a couple of extra t-shirs made. But stop by, and watch the fun as this will be my first real contest. No telling what might happen...

    Hey Noah,

    Not sure if I'll be that way or not. Thought that weekend was the wife's birthday trip, but that is this weekend (8/04-8/06). :D

    If I can get a Buddy to share the driving, I may wind up in Atlanta next weekend. (8/11-8/13) 8) .

    I wouldn't just sit around and drink beer, I'd earn my keep. [​IMG]

    We will need all the help we can get! I can't say that things are very well organized at this point... We will do a practice run this weekend with chicken thighs and a whole brisket, as these are the two catagories that I need the most practice. I usually smoke whole chickens, and I like to do the brisket flats. Anyway, the main goal is to have fun, and avoid a DQ!

    Hey guys,
    Its been a long weekend, and for our first contest it was a great learning experience. First, we scored third place in pulled pork, but don't know where we stand as far as the rest of the catagories (a little confusion at the end). It rained at turn-in time, and our lack of experience really showed preparing our chicken and rib boxes. Our pork box looked pretty good, and our brisket would have been great if it had been pulled out of the cooler a little earlier. (I was expecting it to get stuck as some point:( ) Anyway, we had a great time, and I will post some pics this week. Also, this is the last time I try to do one of these things by myself!;)
