    Here is a link to Mid-Atlantic BBQ Association. They have started updating their 2008 schedule with up coming Q's. Maybe we should talk about possibly meeting up at one of them! Seems like quite a few in MD...
    I know last May they had BBQ "show" in Lancaster, PA where it was a food show for equipment, ideas, rubs, sauces, etc...I plan on not missing this years...

    They're a little North of me, but a weekend trip away! Thanks! I've been looking for a KCBS judging class...Heck, even if I don't pass it would be fun! I'm not sure what the classes actually entail, just seems like that would a great thing to have under me if I decide to ever compete!

    Shelly, Yardley & Holland is looking good for me. I've never been to a competicion(?) before. Just watched them on tv, but I'm really going to try to go to them. Just to walk around and EAT a lot. Thanks for the link.
     
  8. I understand the expo will be april 11/12 and the Salisbury contest is the next weekend.I understand they are still looking for kcbs judges for salisbury.
    WE will be at the competition in salisbury under the banner of Mason Dixon Competition BBQ Team, please feel free to stop and check things out.
    Meadow Creek Welding has a judges class in March in new holland on a friday during their open house.
    Check out the kcbs web site for judges classes,the only test is signing your name and paying your money, then you get to eat bbq and listen to the lecture,the whole class is about 5 or 6 hours.

    Another one that wasn't listed is the NJ State BBQ Champ & Blues Fest.
    Held in North Wildwood, this year July 11 -13. They have your typical "big guys" selling to the public, but I wouldn't consider this competion food, more mass produced que, not bad, but not what you're going to pull off of your smoker. But you do get to walk through the comp area and see what every one is using, how they plate, it's pretty cool. Anyway it's an excuse to head down the shore for a weekend. Probably Sunday would be the best so you could see who it crowned Grand Champ...plus it's in North Wildwood, if you go in the afternoon all of the Irish pubs will be opening for an adult beverage!

  15. Thanks for the link Shell, I think I have spent the last 2 hours clicking on each comp and checking out their pics and q view from last year. There is a KCBS judging class in Dover, DE on April 5th. I am clearing my schedule and plan on attending.

    I've never been to a comp but I will this year.

    I spoke with Jim of Jim Dandy's BBQ here in Cinci and he said they have a backyard catagory so I will be practicing for September. I think it will be fun!

    Thanks for the post!
