Smoke On The Water - Hot Springs AR

We're off for Smoke On The Water in Hot Springs sometime early this afternoon. 101 teams have signed up for the contest. I spent much of the day yesterday getting the meats and wood for the compeititon. We seasoned the new pit and cooked some pretty good chicken and ribs. The pit is incredibly easy to use. It's kind of like zeroing in a rifle. The firebox door has a small plate running accross the bottom that is spring loaded. Once you get it tuned in there is no need to fiddle with it. All adjustments from that point forward are made with the smoke stack and it is incredibly sensitive, very small adjustments will get you 25 degree temperature swings. The pit is very fuel efficient. I don't think we used more than 5 sticks of wood yesterday and we had the pit fired up for seven hours. I had my logo transferred to a sign on the back of the pit and the artist Brenden Stubblefield did an incredible job with it. It really looks great and the photos don't do it justice. I look forward to showing it to a lot of the BBQ Central members next week at Oinktoberfest. Here are a few pics that I took yesterday.

You should stop in and visit both Gator and Bates while your there and start laying the groundwork for the pits you will eventually buy from them!!

Thanks for all the comments everyone. We arrived safely in Hot Springs about an hour ago. We'll be there when the gates open at 9 am tomorrow morning so we'll have plenty of time to set up and prep. I'm looking forward to meeting Cliff. We got some nice seasoned Texas pecan and hickory for tomorrow's contest. I'll try to get a good night's sleep but I might just sleep in the truck. I'm just a little worried about leaving the pit unattended overnight.

We didn't get down to Houston so I couldn't check out Gator or Bates, Woody. They had warning signs in the Dallas area telling everyone not to travel to Houston because they were very short on fuel and you might get stranded. It was tought to leave Texas. Everyone is so friendly down there and totally in to BBQ.

We'll definitely put our best effort forward tomorrow and after that it's our fate is in the hands of the judges. We'll be leaving immediately after the awards ceremony tomorrow. I have to put in over 200 miles after the contest to have a chance to get home by Sunday night. Hopefully Cliff can post our results or if Uncle Bubba is in I can give him a call and he can post the results. If anyone in the Arkansas area wants to stop by and hang out, your more than welcome!

See you guys at Oinktoberfest next Friday!

Talked to Dallas last night. He fininshed in the mid 50's and just missed a call in pork at 24(I think). That comp is like the Jack with the level of competition there. I'm picking Rod to win the Jack this year. The Wade's finished RGC.
