Robert, do you have anything to do with this event? I have sent an Email to the Placerville org. for time line clarification.

Mark just try to give Lisa a call about your questions.

I'm sure she can find out for you.

Just to let you know I meet with Lisa today and trying to help her out with the timing of all this. One of the problems is that there is only a window of time that she is able to close main street down. I know that this will be a bit of a challange for all of us but I am sure that the next event that Downtown Placerville trys to have like this will encounter a lot less hertals to over come. Please support her and Downtown Placerville in this as its also a chance to try and keep some of the town history alive ( The Wagon Train). Thanks to all of you and look forward to every body making it up for a day of supporting history and keeping small town America alive.

If you can't start setting up until 11:00, that pretty much means park, fire up cooker, and hope your ribs are ready for turn-in with only a 4 1/2 hour window. If that is what I am reading, given the time it actually takes to set up, fire up the cooker and bring it up to temp, I just can't see how that constricted time frame is going to work.

Bummer that this fun and historical event is on the same day as the Winchester Business Association Barbecue Cook-off STATE CHAMPIONSHIP, a KCBS sanctioned event in San Jose. :(

Got an Email from Lisa yesterday. She says details will be forthcoming. I am familiar with Placerville, having had a place in Pollock Pines for several years. If the teams could set up off the street before street closure I think the timing could work. There is that little side st by the bell tower and adjacent to the parking garage? The comp turn in is 3:30 I believe but the vending should start when the folks are hungry around noon. Of course we could all do a 500 degree burn.

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for your interest in this event that is new to our organization and Main Street in Placerville!

I have met with Kyle from High Sierra BBQ and he is helping us work through the time issues. But I will have to get the okay from our merchants about closing the street earlier and we may not have that answer until the next general meeting on April 7th.

I will revise the info for now, add the application to OUR website (hopefully by Monday or Tuesday next week) and then hold all applications and checks until AFTER that decision. We will return applications/checks if we cannot fix the timing, but I think we should be able to get you in earlier. Thanks for your patience and understanding. We are only taking 20 teams (10ft x 20 ft spaces).

At least at this comp everyone would be in the same boat. Underdone ribs or burnt crisp :dribble:.

Ok, I have been working with Lisa a little, and it looks like we will have several changes to mostly everything so I will do my best to fill you in.

1. Teams can now arrive around 5:00 a.m. to set up. They will shut down one side of the street for us then and will shut down the other side at 11 a.m.
2. Turn in times for ribs is 12 p.m.
3. Prize money will be based on the amount of teams
4. Sample vending will return 75% to the teams
5. Ribs of course for sampling but you can cook chicken to vend also. Only ribs will be judged.
6. They have local people to judge (non CBJ's) but we need a CBJ as head judge so there is some sort of reasonable tasting going on. Lisa says she will offer up two Brewfest tickets (Placerville event that sells out every year $60 value) to the first CBJ to contact her (PM me and I will give you her number).

That's about it for now. If I left anything out, I am sure I will hear about it. Lisa plans on having the applications updated within the next day or so to reflect the changes. She will update the Wiki page also.

Congrats to Doug McCaffrey and Pigs Can Fly BBQ for winning the 1st annual Wagon Train Rib cook-Off, with 2nd going to Big Shot BBQ and a 3rd place finish for West Coast BBQ What a great venue for a contest with the historic Wagon train rolling through old town placerville, gun fighters shooting it out in the street and lots and lots and lots of people, the teams had no problem vending their product to the large crowd, this is a event you really want to check out next year.I would like to also thank lisa Crummett and the Placerville downtown assoc for putting on this great BBQ event,and allowing the Northern Ca BBQ teams to show off their BBQ Skills and am i am already looking forward to next year.

Complete results and scores are posted on the wiki page.
