For all those who compete...

here's an idea I am throwing out there:

If you are going to be at a BBQ event and would like to be an "Official BBQ Central Correspondent" do this:

Call my computer: 216-220-0966

Leave a voice mail in a reporter style: "This is So and So and I am at such and such...give a run down of what is happening at that point and then close with "This is so and so for BBQ Central"

I can then upload the voice mail to my server and start a thread with the audio stream in it.

It might be a little more interactive and real time then how we are doing it. Or, if you would like me to call you I can do that as well...but you will have to talk at some point. Its not a poscast...just a 2 minute update thingy.

If you are interested just let me know and we can go from there...here's an example:
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="300" height="30" id="pcpp" align="middle">
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.podcastpickle.com/media/podPlayer/pcpp.swf?URI=http://www.bbq-4-u.com/pods/testreport.mp3&instantLoad=0&instantPlay=0">
<param name="quality" value="high">
<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000">
<embed src="http://www.podcastpickle.com/media/podPlayer/pcpp.swf?URI=http://www.bbq-4-u.com/pods/testreport.mp3&instantLoad=0" quality="high" bgcolor="#000000" width="300" height="30" name="pcpp" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">
</object>

Even if your not cooking, but you would like to add you two cents, I'd be happy to post it.

I like almost having another brainstorm here:

If I knew the day before who was going to compete or go to a comp and was interested in reporting, I could set up a conference call and we could do a "spanning the globe" type deal where we just successively go to one person after the next. Have it set for a call once on Friday night, once on Saturday morning and then again for the results later in the evening or something...just an idea.

But either way would be cool to try...just to see what the reaction is.

I've got a contest this weekend (Saturday & Sunday), The Jim Dandy in Sharonville. There will be a few board members there (Jim Ferguson and Erik Hoover).

KCBS Sanctioned and a designated Ohio State Championship.

Call me if you'd like, but not during turn in hours.

I think this is a great idea Greg, but I have gotten to a few contests and not had cell service. This past weekend neither Lil'qer or myself had service.

Word has it that Witt is finally getting hot and cold running water and should have the flush toilets in by the fall.

I just sent you the number. I can do either the reporter type analysis or you can call me and we can do spanning the globe if there are more than one contests to cover that weekend. Let me know what your preference is.
This is one of those new format type contest though. It doesn't start until Saturday afternoon and the award ceremony isn't until Sunday afternoon.

I'm sure Jim Ferguson (Rolling Smoke) wouldn't mind chiming in or Big Mike who might be able to due the commentary since he is coming as a spectator. You could also get Erik's (Cockeye BBQ) perspective as a judge at the contest as well. It should be a fun event.

Maybe I can talk Bruce into coming down as well to get his mind of of football. It's a shot straight down I-75 Bruce!

We are getting a new cooker in the next week. We will be doing a real time practice with it on Sept. 21st and 22nd. We could do a practice call during the practice time. Wife and I are judging in Maggie Valley, NC on Sept. 28th and we are competing in Morganton, NC on Oct. 5th and 6th. We could report from either or both of these. Just let me know what you think Greg and, we can set something up.[/quote:2sr1snl0]

Did you sell the old one?
