BBQ on the River-Paducah KY
« on: July 21, 2015, 07:29:59 am »
It's that time again! 9/24-9/26. Paducah KY. 40 teams cooking for 3 days, pulled pork, ribs, chickens and briskets. Another 50 or so vendors hawking every other kind of food you can think of. Last year over 80,000 pounds of pork and chicken was cooked up.  The neat part is it is all for charity.  No one makes a dime.  On Saturday the 26th, is the competition. Jan and I will be judging whole hogs again this year along with some members of our party.

At last head count there are approximately 20 folks, including spouses, from this Forum and other Forums planning to attend.  Come stay all 3 days or just a day trip. Great food, making news friends and meeting up with some old friends again.

If you need additional info you can PM me and I will be happy to assist in any manner.

If you haven't been before it's an absolute blast with good food and good friends. Judy and I are still planning on going, as long as I can get the office staff trained up in time. They start training on August 1st, that's why I can't get away for 10.5's Midwest Smokeout this year which is another great trip.

If you get lucky you might even get to judge something, hope I get a good gig this year. :)

I forgot one very important attendee.  His name is SSGT Brad Alexander.  Brad is my good friend who lost his left leg to a young lady who chose to blow herself up in Iraq.  We have been friends for years and one day I ran into him and he said "I brought a brand new smoker home from my Dad's.  Do you know anything about this particular brand?  It's a Bradley." :)

He dropped by last year and got to know some of the attendees.  He has no idea but Saber4's wife Judy has a very special surprise for him this year.  Chrystal Burden,NePaS's wife has a special surprise for him as well. 

He is a very humble guy and is always flabbergasted, almost embarrassed, when someone does something for him.  He is a true war hero.  I am proud to call him my friend.

Looking forward to meeting him.  A TRUE hero is hard to find these days

Wish I could be there. If you could maybe you can convince Nepas to come back and be  member. I liked his knowledge and postings on making sausage.

Extended weather forecast for 9/24-9/26 in Paducah is sunny, highs around 80, evenings will be cool down into the 50's. 

Still not too late to make plans to come help us eat 90,000 lbs of BBQ!
