  1. Anyone doing Roc City Ribfest Memorial Day weekend? On the shores of lake Ontario:

    We'll be sending in our application this week. For us it's the furthest we have traveled thus far for an event. It will also be our first for 2009.

    I was thinking of going as a spectator. It might be a good excuse for a northeast get together. Anybody interested?

    I will be camping right down the road from there! Hmmmmmm.
  7. We will be there - Looking forward to it.
    Takeit easy on us though, it will be our first KCBS comp.
  8. Chilepeppa,

    It's Roc City's first KCBS as well. Camp out by us and we'll show you the ropes. Plus I want to see one of those new SS smokers in action. Next year we're getting either one of those or a Stumps. Are you running a Guru or Stoker on it?

    Also, here's another awesome event in your area:

  9. Thanks for the invite Rob, we will definately look you up! - We are rather anxious - in a positive way...
    I currently am not using any type of fan on it. I am considering a guru, but so far I havent had any trouble maintaining temps. The last cook it got up to temp in 35 minutes and it was @15 degrees outside.
  10. It's maintaining that temp for 12 to 14 hours is where the power draft units come in. You'll see - I'll have you convinced. Fuel the unit up, dial your temp and get some rest. A mop here and there and it's done. No fire control worries.

    If you haven't already - check out this video of a guy testing out a Stoker on a 40 lb K burn. We'll be running the same software using a wireless laptop onsite:

    Just sent in the application. We participated last year when it was just the ribs and are looking forward to our first official KCBS competition. See you there - I'll be ready to soak in the Jim Beam and BBQ knowledge from seasoned pros.
  12. Another team first. We're going to try and get next to Julie [Swamp Pit]. Get close to us or the other "BBQ Brethren" teams and we'll help you out. I can remember our first. I just happened to be lucky enough to be adjacent to who showed us the works. There's alot to it.

    We actually competed last year when it was just ribs to get our feet wet and learned incredible amounts, can't wait to pick up some tips this year.

    Update: The Gov's proclamation is in! And we have 21 teams signed up so we will be a State Champ. [​IMG]

    Also we will have access to a bath house on site for Saturday and Sunday for showers and such.

  15. That is good news all around! Showers are a good thing and rarely are they provided.

    Competition has to be exciting.
    Gonna take me a few years before I feel I have any chance of even attempting, but I have a few flavor tricks already...
    Why do you need showers? The smoke will keep your bodies preserved and bacteria/germ free.

    Man is time flying... We are having a great turnout so far, thanks to all who have signed up![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Let me know if anyone needs anything.
  19. Looks like we have a full field with some heavy competition. It's sure to be a good time!

  20. For a first year KCBS sanctioned contest this is incredible! Let's do it !!!!
