    Stop by and say hi if you are in the area.

    I usually have the standing offer of free beer, but this contest they aren't allowing you to bring beer.......if you want it you have to buy it from the organizer.......supposedly at "grocery store prices"......so who knows [​IMG]

    I guess I can make the offer of hiding in the back of my truck and sneaking a sip from a flask. [​IMG]

    Hmmm, if I can talk a friend of mine who doesn't drink but likes BBQ to make the 2½ hour drive, I might help put a dent in your beer supply. [​IMG]

    In the FBA, do you supply the meat or the contest?
     
  13. fatback joe

    fatback joe Master of the Pit OTBS Member

    Bring your own.

    Some contest supply meat for a "people's choice" catagory, but for anything going to the judges you bring it and can't rub, inject, etc. until you get inspected, after the inspection you are free to get cracking.
