Rumor has it the some of the heavy hitters from the mid west will be there. Cancer Sucks, Dr Porkenstein, Quau, Ulcer Acres and the Burnt Food Dudes (whoever they are) are rumored to be cooking. .
Those are some big names. I was there when Cancer Sucks won the Jack in 06. Those dudes can cook.

That's a great contest Dan... I was lucky enough to be part of Jack Waiboer's "Pigs on the Wing" winning team in 2006. Feels great to be on stage when you've just won the whole thing.

It will be interesting to see how it goes this year with it being two contests in one. I might be there...

The date is Feb 10th. Pull in time is 6am and first turn in is at 1:30pm. We have to cook chicken, ribs, pork loin, and a beef brisket. I definitely will be a challenge to set up and cook in 7 1/2 hours till first turn in.[/quote:11c4f8r4]

That's some fast cooking! Invest in some aluminum pans and go to "Kickass BBQ" site to learn about higher temp butt and brisket cooks. I'd do at least one or two practice cooks of each. More if you have the time and the money.

7 1/2 hours from opening the gates, to turning in a brisket ???..

Might want to practice doing 3-4 pound flats prior to that comp.. way too much can go wrong from 6AM to 1:30 turn in...

Someone gotta talk to the organizers of that one .. the scenarios for doom and gloom are endless with that short a period of time.. just getting your smoker up to temp, never mind unloaded from your vehicle, never mind finding yourcooking site... oughta be like a demolition derby with all of those teams scurrying around to get to their spots!!! bring the old car !!!!

whoadoggy the stress level will be high

and forget about relaxing with a midmorning " it's 5PM somewhere" beer

Good Luck to ya !!!
