    Thanks again to all! What he doesn't seem to know is I've already done my Q at the Eagles and people are requesting I do it again! The other thing he doesn't under stand is I'm doing this to help my club out!!!! Well with free beers and yup mix drinks!!

    He better hope it doesn't rain it's pretty easy for me to take pans of PP in a warmer up to the ball room not sure they're going to want that kettle deep frier up there!!! LOL!!!

    Seboke I'd of loved to have another rep from the SMF there!! You'd be getting all the beer you could drink!! Thats why the wifey is driving me home at night!!!

    You mean to tell me that everyone is going to smell that tbs all day and he thinks people are going to want some greasy chicken??? I'm sure he's going to get a few takers, but to call it a contest??? It's over before it even began!

    Thanks BBQ_Addict! I'm going to have the smokers going right outside the tent where the band is going to play! Now this is a band that draws heavy drinkers...I'm thinkin these guys will be wanting the big ole PP sammichs!!!

    Ya know I would of never even thought of trying any of this if it wasn't for the SMF and it's great members!!! This is where I learned how to make real Q and all my friends know that!!!! I was really looking forward to doing this cook now he just fired up my competitive side!!!!

    Let me guess, he probably was going to go down to the local wholesale food store and grab some shredded prok. Throw some BBQ sauce which he also purchased at the store and then maybe throw in some of his own spices and then call it Q.

    Jeez, when will they learn that Qing isnt for the faint at heart. [​IMG]

    Jakesmith he was going to throw the whole shoulder in a roaster...No rub...then have some store bought stuff to put on it!! All the people that have had mine keep asking what the BBQ sauce is and I tell them none...It's my rub mixed with the juices!! That and the spritz I use on it....they don't believe me until I show them...He didn't even know what the lovely bark was that slathering it in mustard first did!!! HA!!!

    He definitely doesn't know that Q'ing isn't for the faint of way he could hang with me and my 30 pack of Strohs on an all night cook!!!!

    Hope you guys don't mind me venting...When I know someone knows about Q then I listen...he just popped off and had no idea what real Q is...If he's my competition then he forgot to load his gun!! LOL!!!

    BTW can't ya roast in an oven...LMAO...sorry had to throw that in!!!

    Shorts, do one thing if ya can.. get an accomplice to stroll over to his chicken booth and get a leg... cut the leg between the drum and thigh.. if it'd been frozen before, it'll be dark red or black on the bones.. and if it's not cooked to 180 deg (and he sounds like he doesn't have a clue..) it'll be bloody... have him wave it around and holler, "Hey, you feedin' me half raw bloody chicken? Why these bones so black? Is this stuff rotten or what??"
    Toss on 10 more butts, you'll need 'em... chicken's goin' in the dirt..!

    POPS6927 LMAO! I'll have all kinds of buddies around that would love to do it! Still not sure where he came from! Never even seen him in the club before!!

    If it wasn't for the SMF I'd be nervous but I've already done this and the love it!!! My wife has even talked to people and told them about the party and what I was cooking and they are coming down to check it out!!!! I'll definitely get some q-view for you all!!!

    Smoke some chicks just to mess with him! Seriously though you mention changing this or that...don't change what is already working for you too much before a big cook.

    The adjustments I'm doing aren't going to be permanent I'm just trying to get a more even temp from front to back by putting a cooking sheet with holes in it in the bottom...if it doesn't work I'll just take it back out!

    Actually I might throw a few ABT's in just for the crew helping me server!

    The cook is the weekend of Sept 19th and 20th!

    I'd throw some birds on, too. Make sure you brine them first. It really puts them over the top. If you really want to get his goat, I have a smoking cookbook out that has a recipe for smoked fried chicken. Basically, smoke it half through, coat it and fry it. I haven't tried it but it sounds interesting. I can post the recipe if you're inclined.
