hey i just noticed i am the 2500th guest to arrive. the website is getting lots of hits lately.
we have the fan for lift off i don't see why we can't have a mothership on the volcano. we do need to try to figure out how to vent the cookers through the piping though.
i actually think that it is the smoke in the air that attracts the aliens.
we'll have to ask keith about this he's the one that was abducted maybe he can shed some light on this.
see ya

Well, I'll just have to get a hold of George Clinton and the P-Funk Conection to see if they have an open date during BBQ Fest. Cause they are the holders of The Mothership Connection !!

had a great time at the southaven event. thanks to all who came down and helped make this a fun time.  
as i have always said this is by all means not a one man show. i had tremendous help from all the cooks as well as the presentation staff. even a special thanks to our worthless photographer (he drank up all our patron) lol  
see ya

I found your site and joined it. After 10 years of trying to get there this is the year we will make it The wife and I will be heading down to Memphis from Rochester New York. It will be our first time there. We should arrive on Wednesday night. What can we expect? Are there people we can help out. We plan on taking the tours during the day on Thursday and Friday.
I figured you all are busy getting ready but hopefully you can give us some help in what to do. We will look your team up when we get there. Good luck.

blaine  
we will be happy to have you come by, and you said you were taking the tours on thursday and friday hopefully you'll get to tour us as well. we are on the caravan of tours and some of the volunteers last year brought their groups for an extra tour of ours when they felt the group did not get a full tour somewhere else.
we actually have a team member coming in from new jersey and have had team members from buffalo as well.
if when you get here you wish to join the team as a member come by and talk to me about that as well.
see ya soon

Thanks for the fine gesture. Is there any type of water you need or prefer? Since we live on the beautiful shores of lake Ontario I have access to all kinds of hydration. Hop selection is fine along with a great selection of grapes.
 
Finger lake wines and a store called beers of the world

blaine: worthless is correct about the patron but on another note if you and the wife think you would be interested in joining as team members email me direct at sscabine@bellsouth.net and i will give you the low down. it would actually give you more days at the contest than those listed as we start loading in on sunday and will start cookng on tuesday nite. and then have a wind down party at my house on the 21st after the contest.

Come early and be a part of the production !! It takes a lot to pull all of this off. We have to get everything set up and in place before we can start building the volcano. Yea, thats right. I said a volcano !!! LOOK OUT FOR THAT LAVA FLOW !!!!
 
Like I said, Our party starts Sunday. We dont have to wait till Thursday !! So the sooner you get here, the sooner your party will start too.

Ok, so I am wondering what in the world is patron. (We are beer and wine drinkers I love a stout) So I google patron low and behold up shows a patron site, it is at nascar so there site says. We are nascar fans ( after this memphis in may) we head to Charlotte for the coca cola 600. So as part of  our quest. The ultimate vacation brownie points with the head cook what flavor do you desire of this sprit you call patron.  
 
I have a friend who has a winery up here. Are you people dry or sweet, red or white wine fans?
 
Love to come early but I Have training on sat and a meeting that night and we have a meeting on Monday night that we cannot miss so we cannot leave until Tuesday. Should be there on Wednesday night.  
 
Hey do you guys like hard cider?

oh yeah we drink wines and beer. do we ever. but i really like top shelf tequilla shots. patron is a top shelf brand and we have other people  that like to bring in other types of tequilla and we do tequilla tasteing much like wine tasteing.  i also use tequilla to marinate with. it starts breaking the fat down before the meat ever hits the grill.
we did a test on the volcano sunday and had no catastrophes but you never know the turnout gear might be a good idea.
see ya

I was looking at the rules. No glass allowed at your site. Is that correct. Makes the beer and wine tougher to do.
 
I have never heard of using tequila to marinate with. Is the taste cooked off.

we are allowed to take glass in on the trucks, they just do not allow it to be taken in by foot. kinda strange but the teams are allowed to have glass in our booths but not out in the park.  
yes the alcohol completely cooks out of the meat and leaves no after taste, a really cool cooking technique that our team i known for. we also use a mustard plaster with this as well.

i do have ways of getting glass into the park after they have shut off our load in times as well, costs a couple of smurf beers but what the heck they come by and get it anyway so they might as well earn it. lol

teams can have glass its the regular masses of people who aren't allowed to have it. as long as we keep it in our booth we are okay.
i will leave it to you to be in control of the volcano....
could really be a thirsty job.

Yea .... that'd be kinda coolto have a real fireman dressed in full regalia standing in front of the booth. We could even get you an old fire extingisher and fill it with smurff beer.

Since the wife and I are newbies at M.I.M. If we get into Memphis early enough on Wednesday will we be able to get into the park to check things out?
 
You guys are killing me with the smurf stuff. Can not wait to find out the story behind this.

Also I was wondering if there is convenient parking around the south entrance. We are staying at the Hampton Inn by medical center. Or would it be better to take a cab over. Or is there bus service from hotel to south entrance to park.

If you get there early... call Bill on his cell. I believe he has your wristbands and T-shirts at the booth. E-mail him if you dont have his cell already. Also , there is less parking on the south end this year. They're builing too many chitty condos. A darn waste of good parking spaces if you ask me ....
Whats MIM gonna do ??
 
Wlorthless, esc.
 
P.S. Bill ... you forgot to bring a spare smurf today. Let's do the test tomorrow.
