2008 Competition Schedule

I just finalized the 2008 Compettiton schedule. The price of diesel has forced us to try and stay closer to home this year. No Virginia competition and we chose not to enter New Holland either which I really enjoyed last year. Here's the schedule so far. October is still up in the air depending on whether Nelsonville survives. If not we may consider Dover Downs which would bring our total comps for the year up to eight.

2008 Competition Schedule

June 6 - Fairbanks, IN Q for the Kids
July 11 - Franklin, PA Smoke On The Allegheny
July 18 - Kettering, OH Ohio Veterans BBQ Cookoff
August 16 - Madison, IN Ribberfest
September 6 - Nashville, IN Bean Blossom Blues, Brews, & BBQ
September 13 Cincinnati, OH Jim Dandy's
September 27 Oinktoberfest
October 18 - Nelsonville or Dover

If anyone from the forum lives near any of these contests, please drop by and have a beer, soda, and some BBQ or better yet be part of the team for the contest. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road. It's been one long winter!

Hey Mike,

I look forward to seeing you hopefully at Fairbanks or Kettering. Looks like we're doing a lot of the same comps.

Did you ever get a replacement for the trophy that they broke at Nelsonville?

Hey Thom,

Great to see you! I see that you have mod status now. I must have either missed the announcement or Greg is negligent in his duties!

Congratulations on that!

I just picked up another smoker, a Backwoods Fatboy! Actually it's on order, haven't told the wife yet. I was looking to downsize a little this year on the size of the smokers.

I also intented to cut back on the number of comps but instead I cut down on distance travelled and added two.

Keep us informed on any more cooking classes that the CBBQA puts on this year!

Hey Mike, I just got a letter from Nashville. Included was three $50 tickets to the Blues festival being held at the contest. This should be a good one!

Sorry to hear about the Nelsonville trophy. I think we all need to start looking at another contest in October. See you in Dover!

Nope, no spicewine yet. You know its only a matter of time. I'd have to have one of those mounted on a trailer. Too heavy to load myself.

Stagecoach looks like one nice event. If it wasn't so soon, I might make inquiries of a certain Spicewine dealer if I could take one for a test drive at the competition. At the price of diesel today, a plane ticket to Palm Springs would be cheaper than my gas costs for most compeititions. Maybe next year though.

Looks like you got some Big time entertainment. Try to keep Wynona away from the BBQ. Last time I saw her she was quite large!

Here is a thought though, maybe someone from California might want to put together an all star team from the forum for this event for next year. I think that would be a lot of fun. I believe the largest group of BBQ Central members assembled has been at Oinktoberfest. It would be great to get together a West Coast event. I'd fly out for that.

What do you think?

Might even sell a few Spicewines that weekend?

Hey Stogie,

We'd be glad to have you! The Kettering and Franklin contests are both in their second year. Franklin is limiting the field to 25, I would expect Kettering to have close to twice that. Nashville will have a big turnout as well with the Blues Festival. Madison is limiting the field this year to 60 teams. It's a great contest.

Hope to see you at one or more of these contests!

How many teams does Franklin, Kettering and Nashville draw?

May have to check them out this summer.

If any of you guys need a good dishwasher, let me know!

Oh, yes, I will bring the stogies!
Come hang with us at Franklin

Hey Thom,

I was checking out the Stagecoach Festival site. That's got to be the most impressive entertainment lineup I've ever seen at a BBQ Contest and Festival (outside of the Houston Rodeo).

Lets see according to the website you've got:

The Eagles, John Forgerty, Trisha Yearwood, Glenn Campbell, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Rascal Flatts, The Judds, Dierks Bentley, Dwight Yokum, Taylor Swift, Earl Scruggs, Bucky Covington, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, Big & Rich, Gretchen Wilson, Trace Adkins, and George Jones, just to name a few.

Incredible, I'd love to attend. Definitely have to plan a vacation around it for next year!

Franklin imposing a 25 team limit? They have a huge area. I wonder why a limit.

Yes, the website even has Bubba's picture on the front page. That ought to limit the number of entrants for sure!
