The countdown

Well Folks, it's just one more day until the cooking begins at the Harpoon Championships of New England Barbecue!

My team has been fully organized, my trucking arranged and the pack list organized. As we speak, Farmer Girl is baking for her end of the event, the vending. Old Bull and the Mamer are coming down from up north to join us and The Brewer will be arriving on Saturday morning to pitch in. Regrettably, The Chef had to bail on this year's event because his wife had a heart attack last friday. Fortunately, she survived and is out of the hospital. Clearly it's time for two of my favorite people to knock off the smoking! Our best to them as she heals up and gets back into action!

The truck is getting packed tonight, the last minute sauces and rubs are being pulled together and the meat gets picked up tomorrow morning. Then we're off to Windsor to get a booth, load in and set up!

I'll have pictures and comments for ya'll on Monday, which I sensibly took off from work this year. Wish us luck!



Bon Chance Mon Ami
we'll pop in Sat and say hello and we're hoping you'll be vending some of those tasty rubs -

get well soon Mz Chef

So? How'd you do? How was the contest? Inquiring minds want to know.
