Well it’s that time of year again! The 6th annual Fowlerville Fattie Championship is next weekend!

We are trying to tone it down a bit this year as last year it was a bit bigger than we realized it was going to be. Costs are really flying up.

If you’ve been to it before your welcome to come by. Let me know through pm if you plan on attending, entering or if you need directions.

If you’ve never been before and would like to enter pm me. We have limited space on the smoker and once it’s full it’s full.

This contest was started years ago by people who met on this page. It’s grown from 4 fatties the first year to 32 last year. It’s family friendly (at least until dark) and a good time to meet fellow Michigan bbq enthusiasts.

I’m behind on some of the planning this year but as of now I have two prime full packer briskets to smoke and I’m planning on doing 4 butts.

If your coming and would like to cook something we have plenty of grill space. Or if you’d like to bring a side dish it’d be appreciated. Like I said this event is growing and there’s a lot of hungry people to feed.

Hope to see y’all in a few days!

Hmmm, wonder if I can make it day trip!!!!
The contest was amazing...im.guessing there were around 100 fattys total with about 40 entries...alot of us brought two or more...
The food was amazing...salads galore, burnt ends, loads of ABTs, pulled pork, and ribs. We even had venison and elk burgers and Scott aka hillbillyrkstr (our gracious host and one of the founders of the contest) had a home brewer brew up some amaving beer using smoked hops...He also served one of the best briskets I've ever had...
Right on par with Franklin's and Lockharts.
It was all around a great time.

Glad I'm getting to come from WI. And no, I am not bringing cheese curds. <I figure at some point this will be expected of me right?>

Also Scott; do you need another pork butt? I can try to get to the store and grab one before we leave since we'll try to be there before it's dark out Friday.

Thanks Tom. I think we will have all the pork butts on before you get here but I appreciate it.
 
Day trip Jeff!!! I like it! Not that far of a drive!
 
Appreciate the compliment Walt! I have 2 prime packers thawing in the basement fledge right now! Gonna try to hit another HR with them! Figured I’d double it this year!

You coming out Friday night again Walt?

I'm hoping your brisket will make my father realize how good brisket can be...course finding good ones will still be a challenge!
 
Gonna try tom! I’ve smoked more than I care to count and for whatever reason last years topped them all. It just kept smoking and smoking. Wasn’t don’t until 90% of the crowd left. Probably 95%. The few who were still standing were treated to a fine piece of meat.

I might try to buy a few pounds of brisket off ya then..My briskets <the whole two I've done> are nothing special. Though I'm wondering if I just can't find a good cut to begin with!
 
I’m gonna take an educated guess that the brisket will be all gone pretty early. But we can talk about how to get you running down the right path to smoking it at your place and getting results your happy with.

I'm hoping to learn some about that! Briskets aren't common here, so it's hard to find hands on knowledge even in resturaunts to see what the meat should look like!
 
Well guys.. unfortunately it sounds like I’ll be working and not able to attend. Sucks to plan on something all year and not control weather I’m working or not. With my new catering business starting up I’ve gotta tread lightly on the days I say I can’t work. I’ll know for sure tomorrow and will keep in touch with hillbillyrkstr hillbillyrkstr I’ll be needed directions if I head that way... my memory is foggy from last year.
 
That’s rough angler. Hopefully it works out. Gonna be a good one this year. But there’s no doubt it’ll be back again next year for the 7th time!
