Frozen Few 2009

Who wants to be in the first comp of the year? This is a fun virtual bbq winter competition. It is primarily for those of us that cook in the dead of winter, real northern winter. To qualify for Grand Champion you have to cook below 32*F or prove that there's snow on the ground. We had a great turn out last year. We had 23 teams in 2008. We'll do again on Superbowl weeked, Jan 30 thru Feb 1. Last year the entry fee was $25 and that covered the cool T-shirt and shipping. We'll try to tighten up the rules some and get more info out shortly.

Who is interested?

We had some inconsistencies in the rules last year that need a little tweaking. This is one of those areas. We'll get a complete set of the rules posted shortly after Thanksgiving. There will be three catagories, Arctic Survivor (long cooks below freezing), Northern Vacation (ribs and other mid-range cooks below freezing) and southern Comfort (anything cooked above 32*). Snow on the ground is an automatic qualifer. The rules aren't real tough since, let's face it, it's a comp based on pictures of food.

How could I pass up an opportunity to cook a comp without leaving home - I'll have to hope for a cold weekend in this area.

I sent my entry in but after looking at last years winners, I know I'm just buying a t-shirt and competing for the fun-of-it, plus it'll probably be 60*.
