Wow that would be a new twist to a comp. Your team of 2 has to finish the 12 pack before starting you're cook.

This looks like a good cause and a fun day. Not too many opportunities to "Q" left.

Hey Coach, will that 12 pack offer extend to the judges, too?

Is it expected that all 5 racks should be cooked? That seems like a lot of racks.

Darn... this is my kind of Cook off! Unfortunately I'm cooking for a wedding that weekend! Bummer!

Have a great time everyone!

By the way "Is it expected that all 5 racks should be cooked? That seems like a lot of racks." do the math...

Beer + College kids + BBQ + Baseball = lots of ribs!

eek. 9 Racks now.

It seemed like a great opportunity for me to participate in a BBQ competition for fun, but all I've got is a single WSM. There's no way I could cook that many racks.

I once cooked 18 racks in a single 18" WSM with the extra Pro-Q insert. The only problem I ran into was not lighting enough coals initially to get the cooker up to temp so I had to add about 20 extra lit coals. After that it cooked like a charm!
