    hey partner,
    Better count again, 24 1/2 days and I will be there all set up and cooking. [​IMG]

    And yes, the sight is gaining color and advertising. They still don't have my name spelled right.... I tried emailing but it keeps coming back as their isp is banned because of "spam"..... go figure. I called again, but still not done.

    I just got off the phone with the promoter to find out where our information packets are.

    She said that the grand champion prize money is now at $7000, up from $5000.

    And there are 40 teams signed up.....

    I'm going to smoke some butt......and brisket.....and ribs..... and chicken..... and some sauce.....and some kind of turkey. They are providing the bird, or breast. I still don't know which.

    It's going to be some kinda fun....

    If any body is in the area, come on by.

    thanks everyone for the encouraging words.

    I have a feeling it will be a tough, but fun time. I am still pumped after finding out 40 teams are signed up.

    KCBS's team of the year is going to be there as well. But, on any given day, it can be mine......

    I have a good feeling.

    I will be all packed up and ready to roll in 14 days.

    Big Green Egg is giving away a large egg with all the accessories to 50 grand champions this year. Slamminbbq is one of the comps. More details at

    Yes, I plan on a few pics. I am going to try and remember to take a couple of the disposable flash cameras for my helpers to use and take pics for me. I am also going to bring my 35mm to take pics.

    I got my packet in the mail today. All I can say is:


    What an event.....

    Saturday is going to be a VERY busy long day. The award ceremony isn't until 6:15pm [​IMG] .....

    That is because the last turn-in is at 2:30pm. The first one is at noon. Six categories in all.

    They have even scheduled a welcome buffet dinner for Friday night, and a continental breakfast for Saturday morning.

    So, I guess my dawgwhat is going to be a very busy dude...... see ya there buddy.

    Hey Dawgwhat, see if ya can wrestle that secret chicken rub recipe outa Grumpy for me.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I know I didn't see this, so good luck...... here is the easy step to great chicken

    1) buy whole chickens
    2) split into halves removing the back bone
    3) wash, clean, trim any loose skin, fat, etc.
    4) marinate overnight in Italian dressing.
    5) the next day, get smoker going
    6) remove chicken from the refrigerator
    7) place chicken in pan and let excess marinate drip off
    8) when smoker is ready, take chicken outside
    9) sprinkle lots of mrgrumpy's secret rub on it
    10) place on smoker
    11) cook at approx 235 degrees F
    12) when chicken reaches approx 155 in the thigh, put first coating of mrgrumpy's secret sauce on it, brush all over
    13) when chicken reaches approx 160 in the thigh, put second coating of mrgrumpy's secret sauce on it, and brush all over
    14) when chicken reaches approx 167, pull and put in hot box to rest
    15) enjoy.

    Yes, I do halves......

    So how much easier can it get......
