I'm entered in a competition near my hometown next weekend. The organizers must have given my name to the local paper (the Courier-Journal) who called me today. They said they heard that I was a first-time competitor, and wondered how I got into it.[p]I gave a lot of credit to the folks on this forum, and how you guys have helped me to cook all kinds of things that I'd never done before I got my Egg.[p]If they run the article, I'll be sure to post it here somewhere. The reporter specifically asked for the website, so hopefully we'll get some more press for this great forum!

    Eggtuary,

    Squeeze,
    It's the South Oldham Lions Club Barbecue & Bluegrass Festival, held in Crestwood, KY (near Louisville). I went last year to meet Old Dave, who posted here that he was going to be in attendance (though he didn't cook). My wife and I had a blast, and decided we could totally see ourselves doing this.[p]Our own Dr. BBQ says on his website that he'll be there, too. I'm looking forward to seeing him again (my family had the pleasure of meeting him at last year's Eggtoberfest.)[p]Thanks for the offer to help. I'll probably have more questions as we get closer to next Friday!

    mad max beyond eggdome,
    Actually, I did mention you, though not by name. I told them how you ran the Turkey Hotline during the holidays, which I took advantage of on Thanksgiving Day (thanks again, by the way!) The reporter seemed pretty impressed by that (I could hear her typing away...)

    Dublin Dawg,
    Well, to do that I'd have to beat one of our own. And I'm guessing Ray (Dr. BBQ) Lampe isn't going down without a fight!

  • Eggtuary,
    You must be competing in Crestwood, KY?? I'm in Madison and the Courier-Journal is either the Madison Paper or the Louisville Paper....I was going to compete in Crestwood but I thought it was in Sept. ... I heard it got moved to June 3.... gonna miss that one.[p]Good luck in the competition and the article.[p]Doug

    Eggtuary,You better start asking now because time will run out. Go have a good time, don't get stressed out, have a plan and follow it, folks will be glad to give you help at the contest, just let them know it's your first, and get ready for a great time because you are opening a new cooking area for alot fun and alot of work.[p]To a Great First Contest,
    Poppasam

    Eggtuary,He wont go down without fight is correct, but he will let you know he is proud of your win if you beat him. If you have any free time hang out with the MAN because he can and will be a great help. [p]Poppasam
