All Around Comp
I was just thinking. :shock: I thought that it would be fun to have a party/comp where we all got together and everyone cooked a meal starting with Appitizers, Dinners, sides and Desserts. All having to be cooked in your smokers on site. Then we could all sit around and sample each others fair. We could make it into a comp or just have fun. The food could be anything not just the comp meats.
I would be willing to have it at my home. I have 1 1/2 acres of trees and grass. It even has a orchard with some fruit trees.(No stealing wood) I was thinking early spring. What do you think?

Re: All Around Comp
Sounds like a lot of fun if you don't mind a newbie giving it a try.

Re: All Around Comp
Vic,

I really like that idea -- a spring opening, laid-back meat & greet. It would also be a great opportunity to watch and learn as well. I bought a second WSM a few months ago and I would love to learn how to cook something besides meat. Big Grin

Count me in!!

Incidently, you shouldn't have mentioned the stealing wood part though, (borrowing on a no return basis), I just bought a new chainsaw and it's really quiet. :twisted:

I've done pizzas b/4, taste good, they do. I've put the old blakpots in my Traeger and cooked stuff that way too. Hey, heats' heat regardless of the source. (Long as it ain't a gasser) :wink: Gassers' are ok, for seasoning your dutch ovens. IMHO. Don't stink up the house like it would if you put them in mommas oven.

Re: All Around Comp
Hey, Vic...

Hoochie will make every effort to be there... Just set the date... And I promise you won't even notice that missing fruit tree afterwards... :wink:

IMHO, developing a yearly "program" of well thought out and well organized "local" events/get-togethers ("local" being defined as "within 1-3 hours driving time" for most of us) is pretty critical to the success of any attempt at "organized BBQ" here or anywhere else... They need to get on a calendar as early as possible for everyone to see and know about - be given full support/promotion on the website - and, of course, be well attended by as many "members" as possible...

They also need to be diverse... The UBBQA saw a nice increase in "comps" this year compared to it's inaugural year... But not everyone is into "competing", and we need to do a little better job of remembering that... I am certain there are quite a few folks who would just like to get together... Put a face with a name... And do a little cooking and/or just have an opportunity to "watch and learn"... Laugh a little, learn a little, grow a little...

Thanks, Vic, for stepping up to host something like this...

(BTW - did you get my email recently regarding the John Deere? Sent it to your email address at work... Just wanted to make certain you knew after over a year I finally sent it to you!! LOL!!)
