1. Our community (Sturgis, MI) has an event in the summer called "Ribs on the Runway". It has just been different people cooking ribs and selling them. I belong to the Chamber of Commerce and have approaced them about doing a Smoking/BBQ contest. We are located centrally to four states. I am thinking more of an amatuer contest. I know of no other contest any where near here. If there is any interest or info. you could could give me it would be appreciated. It is just an idea right now. I don't even know if it is a good idea. If I see some good possibilities, I will continue to pursue it.

    this contest looks pretty cool but is limited to 25 Teams

    also if you use Royal Oak charcoal, you dont have to bring your own, they will supply what you need, you just have to tell them in advance how much you want

    That's about as far from Sturgis you can get....there's also comp's in Grand Rapid's and Mear's Mi, which is close to you...
    Was also thinking, if your serious, send me a P.M. with your E-mail and i will get you hooked up with the Great Lakes BBQ Assoc.
    That's the kind of thing's were trying to do is to promote BBQ in the Great Lakes area!! [​IMG]

  16. To everyone who has responded: I am still trying to get the Chamber of Commerce on board. My son and I purchased Welch's Steak @ ribs in Sturgis, so we are super busy. We are increasing the smoking menu and have a growing reputation for our apple smoked herb crusted prime rib. We are phasing in barbeque plates annd ha ve a large Southern Pride smoker on the way. I will keep everyone posted if anything develops with the contest.
