Honcho

wittdog and I have been talking about the 2010 Frozen Few. The economy has sucked and we have lost our major prize sponsor. A law firm in Anchorage will continue to donate the trophy but that's about it as far as prizes goes. We have been kicking around making the entry fee a $20 donation to a food bank. How does that sound to the cold weather smokers out there?

Who's food bank. Put me in the game. So what you don't get a prize . Its just the right thing to do. Maybe we could have a draw with just names and who ever won, the money could go direct to them. Just a thought.

Re: Frozen Few ? ? ?

Sorry, I don't believe I can qualify this year. You see global warming has converged with a El Nino. (That is hot air blow'in in from the desert) This year "they" (The Man) predicts the average temps for January in So Cal will be in the 80's.

I will crack a cold one for you guys. Does that count?

Whatever is decided is ok with me - just as long as something is decided! I look forward to FF each year - as it's my one and only practice/test cook for the comp season!

Re: Frozen Few ? ? ?

As Griff said the FF will continue this year but under a new format. With the economy being what it is I was reluctant to contact the sponsors that have been so good to us in the past…other than that prestigious Alaskan Law firm ( we all know that the government, banks and lawyers always get paid ). Seriously the Alaskan Law firm will be once again sponsoring the Frozen Few trophy.
The original reason for the contest was to have a fun winter “virtual contest”…we kind of have gone away from the fun aspect of things with the amount of prizes that were generous donated by our sponsors. Since the economy has been so bad we decided that instead of the $20 entry fee going towards T-shirts and shipping that we were going to use this contest for the forces of good. We are going to donate the entry fees to http://feedingamerica.org/default.aspx?show_shov=1/ (formally Second Harvest) which is the nations food bank. Please take a moment to check out the Feeding America site. I worked at the Food Bank of WNY for a short period after college and am familiar with the great work they do.
While discussing this we also liked the idea that the donation would be sent to them in February after the Holiday. Its nice to give during the holidays but unfortunately people go hungry all year long.
There will be more details to follow but if you are interested in the Frozen Few contact me via PM and I’ll let you know where to send the check for your entry fee.

Re: Frozen Few ? ? ?

As a judge, I can say I can certainly do without the t shirt and gift certificates
provided in years past...although they were greatly appreciated...I sport my
FF shirt all over Myrtle Beach, and I have become a regular customer of
Smokinliscious wood chunks.

It's a ton of fun, and a trophy is all I ever compete for anyway, and
to make it for a good cause is even better. We all know that the bbq
community is full of people who go above and beyond to help others
and do the the right thing......in fact, if times are too tough for someone
who wants to enter, I'll pay for one person's entry fee, just pm me and
we'll keep it quiet.

Re: Frozen Few ? ? ?

Yea, I feel bad, I burned a hole in my FF shirt from last year. But it was a good cigar, and good Bourbon. Good thing I was in the lawn chair by the camp fire. We do the food bank down at the Rez every year. The smoke shops are greedy! Won't help at all. Money, money, money.
