Hey everyone!

Sorry this took me so long. Just wanted to give you all a little break down on Saturday. If you plan on attending our clinic, please comment at the bottom of this post and tell me whether you are spectating or competing.  I know there has been some concern about this being some "serious comp" to clarify, this is not a serious comp, its a mock comp.  That's why we are calling it a clinic.  We want those with interest in competition BBQ to be able to see everything from items needed and setup, to meat prep, cooking and turn ins!  For those of you that are looking to get into competition BBQ this is a HUGE opportunity for you to learn from some of the best in the business, including Little Miss BBQ who won their first Grand Championship this last weekend in Surprise.  We also have mentors from other very talented AZ teams such as Ranch 13 BBQ, and Bam Bam's BBQ.  With the talent here to teach you newcomers, you could easily pay $500 to $1000 dollars for this type of hands on training.  Your price tag this weekend?? ZERO!!! So take advantage!!  All are welcome, whether you cook and compete or not, come in and learn some things!  So below you will find a schedule for the weekend.  If you plan on cooking this weekend, you need a rack or two of ribs, and some chicken thighs.  Also bring your cookers and all items needed to cook.  If you would like to cook and do not have a smoker or do not have the means to transport your smoker, we have a couple of WSM's and a Big Green Egg that a few people can reserve.  Reserve a smoker.  First come first serve of course.  Obviously we have everything here that you can purchase if you forget something or don't want to haul so much, including ribs.  I need a list of all people that are planning on cooking!  Don't be shy! If you don't know how to smoke ribs, that's what we are here for! 


7:00 am  Arrive and setup (coffee and donuts provided)
7:45 am  Meet and greet
8:00 am  Start cooking
1:00 pm  Chicken Turn in
1:30 pm  Rib turn in
2:00 pm  Results

We are going to have a blast, and the more the merrier!  Who's in??

Can you show me that rib recipe you promised? Cameron, If I can help in any way let me know as I am trying to schedule to be there. BBQ Island is doing something special for the BBQ World and is appreciated.

Shaping up to be a fun event. Justin, Mark, and Brandon we would LOVE to have you all there!! For all of you new cooks, you are going to be surrounded by some very experienced people. Cant wait!!
Mike DeZeeuw Date 3/6/2012 10:39:36 AM
I am with Chris!

This sounds awesome! Unfortunately I will not be able to attend. I'll be in Vegas for my brother's bachelor party. Looking at the schedule though is 5.5 hours enough cooking time for ribs? I prefer at least 6, 8 is ideal. Five hours doesn't seem like it's long enough to get an awesome rib especially if it includes prep time and time used to prep the presentation.

Spectating/judging and alot of learning.
