It's a great time and I higly recommend it. Supposedly you can call ahead locally and they'll try to hook you up with a team from your area.
Everything there is a private party. I was able to talk my way into an invitation from Terry Black of Super Smokers BBQ. Super nice guy. I introduced myself to him there and complimented him on the DVD that he put out along with Jeff Stehney and Mike Davis (the Arkansas Mike Davis not the Oklahoma one) and how much it had helped and he invited me in to the party. I was there when the judges came through. Since Memphis In May uses on site judging as a compenent of the overall score, the BS there runs deeper than the mud. Terry greated the judges with a sorbet and asked them to use it to cleanse their palate and get the nasty taste of the last BBQ they had judged out of their mouth.

Hit all the BBQ joints you can while you're there too. We did Rendevous and Nealy's Interstate BBQ. Also saw Graceland and the Lorain Hotel where Martin Luther King was killed as well. Don't forget the Peabody Hotel and the parade of Ducks either.
Did you get to see "the bathroom" where he shit himself to death?

Nope, the upstairs which includes the master bedroom and bathroom is off limits to the public.

I do find it somewhat appropriate though that the King died while on the Throne!

Isn't shitting yourself to death ruled a suicide??

Too bad we don't have a section just for that.
