How many of you....

I was curious how many of you out there compete in BBQ contests? How many contests do you compete in each year?

Looking at the schedule it looks like anywhere between 6 - 10 this year. Split between cooking with Larry & Rev Jr, and Jack W.
I've got a few invites to cook out there also and will have to see if any of them workout with the schedule.

What is it starting? Geez I was trying to joke around. Maybe the next time a wheelchair joke is made I'll throw a BF too. Sorry Bill.

2007 will be my 5th year cooking on my own. The last three seasons I've been averaging 9 contests a year and I'm burnt out.

Fat Angle BBQ (my niece and her squeezes new team) is spinning off my team and they are getting my place in a couple contest's. This season it looks like I'll cook 6 contests and go to Wildwood to teach a BBQ class.

If you ever see me at a contest (Lost Nation Smoke Company) stop by and have a Fat Angle Ale from Magic Hat Brewery official beer LNSC.

I've competed for a couple of years, only about 4 contests though. I refuse to have someone in a wheelchair on my team, so that limits me in some regards.

You've hated Larry for years.

This is our 10th year on the circuits. It seems like we do as many as I can afford. We are currently sponsorless. I've got 7 on the calendar to do before the summer break in July. I'm hoping to be able to sustain a budget.

Good Q!

Jack
