With our win in Harvard it secures our spot for the American Royal next year and gives us a 50/50 shot of competing in the Jack Daniels Invitational ,2011,also.That being said and from what i have read there is a lot of planning involved.I'm trying to figure out whether to rent a mobile home up here or down there also what to do in the area of both places Rod gray of pellet Envy had a post about competitng for the first time but i would love to find out more.If any one has any suggestions of where to look online or email me it would be much appreciated.
Needless to say we are excited even though it is 1 year away.Alan and myself are also glad that we were able to accomplish our goals this year which was to win a GC for grilling and bbq.What a perfect end to the email( )(charlie)
Our friend Bill from Smokin Hoggz is going to compete in North Carolina this november so all our best to him .
Good luck also to our friends from ISS!!,Lakeside smokers,Ique and feeding friendz all competing in "the Jack"this year ....make New England proud again!
Also I have had a few people ask me what box number we were for peoples choice....i wish i could remember we had so many numbers with all the peoples choice plus grilling and bbq all being different numbers i wish i had kept track i will next year for sure.

Harvard fall festival was great for us as most of you know so we are very happy with that being said i would like to also congratulate all the other teams who received calls.Ique was reserve grand champion and Lakeside Smokers was third i also have to say they(Chris Hart and Mike Boisvert) are among the nicest and most complimentary people NEBS has.Thanks again to Bill,Al and Shaune from Smokin Hoggz and Jim,Moe,Dj and Anthony from Devine Swine for there constant ribbing and making the events fun and also being there when we forget stuff which seems to happen no matter how much planning we do.Now from what I've read its almost time to start planning for the Jack or the royal or both which take lots of planning.If any of the teams have any advice on what i need to plan for please email me and let me know or who have competed and what should I expect.

I can't believe it we won GRAND CHAMPION with 3 first place calls 1 in chicken,ribs and pork.
We also felt very good about our brisket which has been up and down we seemed to fix this in Maine and it carried over to Harvard with 12th place ,which we were very happy about.We also were 3 rd overall in grilling with a second in sausage and for the second year in a row "People's choice pulled pork" winner.This has been an unbelievable end for a great year for us.Thanks to everyone for for the congratulations .It was also a great weekend for our friends from Smokin Hoggz 4th overall for grilling and 16th overall for bbq .We couldn't have asked for better weather it was just great now hoping we make the draw for the jack next year and if we don't make that off to the Royal we go.there will be photo's to follow.

It's less than 2 weeks until the harvard fall festival which is one of my favorite contest.This year they are adding a grilling contest which we are excited for since our GC in merrimack we hope we have a repeat performance again and hopefully our luck carries to sunday also.I also hope the weather cooperates like last year even with the 33 degree temps at night.This year we are bringing 2 new people who want to check out what comp.bbq is all about this should be fun we will have 2 more converts soon.It's also our last comp for this year we are trying to make it 5 for next year including Delaware for Alan because he is such a huge race fan.Harvard not only to the grilling there is a people's choice event BOTH days this year which we are doing also its going to be a busy weekend but will be fun none the less.
