Nashville, IN - Blues, Brews & BBQ

We're off tomorrow to compete in Nashville, IN at the Blues, Brews, and BBQ contest. Looks like a nice contest with some of the same teams that cooked at Madison. About 30 teams including Moonswiners and Shigs In Pit. Should be a good time. If anyone from the forum shows up make sure you stop by!

This will be the first of four contests in four weekends in four different states. Next weekend its Cincinnati, then we go down to Texas to pick up the pit, and cook in Arkansas on the way back, then Oinktoberfest the following weekend. If you catch be sleeping at the contests you'll know why!

Thanks for all the comments everyone! We had a lot of fun at this contest. It was a first year contest but the Blues Festival has been around for many years and draws huge crowds. The weather was a little shaky on Friday but cleared up by Friday evening and was perfect on Saturday. The event is sponsored by Bushmans Harmonica's and all the teams received a special commemorative Harmonica and a smaller key chain one (that you could actually play) in their goody bags.

They paid out to 7 places in each category. We got seventh in ribs, sixth in pork, and 3rd in Brisket. We thought our Chicken was very good again but it slipped to 12th from the first place we had in Madison. All the judges were 100% CBJ's but for many this was there first time judging a contest. They had a CBJ class to train the judges. I was impressed with the consisitency in scoring this time. We didn't see any 9's and 5's mixed in. Lots of 9's and 8's and a few scattering of 7's. We missed out on 5th place pork by .0002 of a point. I'm not really sure how that happens. I know it has something to do with the weighting of the scores but I was having flashbacks of Madison where we lost the Grand by .0006 of a point.

Alll in all a very nice contest and I'd definitely do it again.

So it's one down and three more to go. We'll be packing up Thursday night and heading down to Cincinnati for the Jim Dandy's Contest. From there its off to Texas to pick up the pit. We will have the pit seasoned at Jamies on Wednesday (9/17) and head for Hot Springs on Thursday. We'll be bringing our laptop with us so we'll be able to post pictures along the way. Smoke On The Water will be by far the biggest contest I've ever cooked in with over $50,000 in prize money paid out to twenty places in each category and to the top 10 teams overall. I really like the contests that spread the cash around to as many teams as possible.

So far I've recovered nicely from this past weekend and I'm ready to go. Hope to keep the BBQ Central Karma going!
