Anyone going?  Details are below, it is usually a real good time.  I only live 30 minutes or so from here so it is fun for us.

Fuels Smokin’ Competition October 22-23 in Lynchburg
[h4]Top teams from around the globe to compete for the industry’s top title[/h4]
WHAT: More than 70 championship barbecue teams from across the United States and from around the world will compete for the Grand Champion title at the 22nd Annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue on Friday‚ October 22 and Saturday‚ October 23.

“The Jack‚” considered the most prestigious barbecue competition in the world‚ will bring together the best of the best to compete for the top prize - to be named Jack Daniels’ Grand Champion.  Winners will not only be awarded ultimate bragging rights‚ but awarded with more than $30‚000 in cash and prizes.

WHEN: October 22 - 23‚  2010
9:00 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.

WHERE: Lynchburg (pop. 361)‚  Tenn.
Every drop of the world’s best-selling whiskey is made in Lynchburg‚ ironically a dry county. However‚ for one weekend out of the year the city’s familiar sour mash scent is replaced with the smell of pit smoke‚ as 30‚ 000 visitors unite for the ultimate barbecue competition.

WHO: More than seventy U.S. and international championship teams and more than 25‚000 barbecue fans.
Domestic teams who have won a state championship with at least 25 teams or a competition of 50 or more teams earlier in the barbecue season earned a chance to compete in seven categories: Pork Ribs‚  Pork Shoulder/Butts‚  Beef Brisket‚  Chicken‚  Dessert‚  Cook’s Choice and Jack Daniel’s Sauce. The 2009 Jack Daniel’s world grand champion and the current season’s Memphis in May‚  American Royal Open and Houston World’s Championship Bar-B-Que received automatic invitations.

We will be there for sure and we will definately look you up!  Black Cat BBQ   sounds familiar have I seen you there before?  It is a great time we love going there.

Good luck and see you there!

I'd love to make it but the wife just rolled her eyes at me when I said it was only a 9 hour drive.  lol  Tried convincing her going over the mountains this time of year would be pretty etc...I'll have to keep working on her. 

If I could get a #7 barrel while I was there I'd make the trip solo!
