Hey all, this event is now, FINALLY LOCKED in.  Our 2nd Annual Pit Crews & BBQ is scheduled for this October 11th - 12th, 2013

It will once again be out at Bob's School over in Glendale.  Arizona Automotive Institute - http://www.aai.edu/

You can read up on last year's event by visiting http://www.azbarbeque.com/forums/pit-crews-bbq/

We are expecting over 300 Bikers as well as lots of Muscle Cars.  There will be Entertainment & lots of great, fun booths setup out there.

Max's Sports bar is one of the Sponsors along with Budweiser and they will have a Beer Garden & Beer Truck out at the event.  Max's is also a block away and they are hoping to get a bunch of us over there on Friday night as well as a bunch of people over there all day on Saturday.

Mike King with Pool Kings is once again Sponsoring this event, Mike has been a great supporter of AZBarbeque, The Barbeque Championship Series (BCS) and all of our events.  If you need a great Pool company, please contact Mike, he will certainly take care of you.

Our other sponsor of course is Bob's School, AAI and we thank them for hosting & sponsoring this once again this year.

We will have more info on the People's Choice within the next 2 weeks.

Right now, we are limited to just 20 teams, so first come, first locked in.  Space sizes are only 20 X 20, so some of you will have to work to fit into that space.

It is a Dry event meaning you have to bring your own Electric & water.  We will have water available on site to fill up jugs & such, but NOT RV's.

Get your Registration in ASAP.

I posted this last night at 6 pm, here we are at 6 am, just 12 hours later & the form has already been downloaded 12 times, I have 16 Teams I've e-mailed it to and I've already received in three Entries.  Not too bad.

That leaves 17 on the board.  Get those registrations in ASAP.  Don't miss out on a great, Local event.

Great News... Sort of..

OK, so our meeting with the city went great today.  They said that as long as we can fit 25 teams into the space already alloted to us, we could have them, thus making this event a qualifier.

So, we are currently at 14 teams.  That leaves us space for 11 more.  BUT...  Everyone needs to come as small & compact as you can so we can make this happen.

We are excited about this and really happy they agreed.

I wish I could. But since the city condemned the property,  it's a no go. Next year I plan on having a bigged area for us. Damn those non-schmoozable folks.  Cry

OK, here is the info for this event.  I did NOT do up a big e-mail blast like I have done in the past as it's been proven that none of you read it anyway.

              Glendale, AZ 85301
Take Glendale Ave to 46th Ave, then head South one block.  Event lot will be the vacant lot on the West side of the street.  Look for Bob or myself to set you.

Contact Info:

Michael Reimann - AZBarbeque - (602) 363-5196
Nancy Murney - Barbeque Championship Series Director - (602) 373-6137

Space Sizes: This is going to be a VERY Tight event, so please come as small as you can.  Spaces sizes are 20 X 20 unless previously approved.

Cooks Meeting:  6 pm on Friday evening.  This will be held in the room where the judging will be held, we will direct you to that location when you arrive.

Electricity:  None provided, you are all self sufficient, please plan accordingly.

Water:  There is water available on site

Trash:  They have a big dumpster that will be on site for our use

ASH:  Our Club Ambassadors have purchased some metal cans and they will be available on site for use

Grey Water:  Bob will have several grey garbage cans placed around for you to use for Grey Water disposal

MEATS:  Teams are required to supply their own Meats for the competition.  Meats may NOT be prepared ahead of time.  They may be trimmed, but NOT Seasoned, Brined, Injected, rubbed, etc.  Please refer to the BCS Rules for more info on this  http://www.barbequechampionshipseries.org/rules.php

Health Department & Fire Department Regulations:  Teams are required to have an approved and updated Fire Extinguisher as well as a Hand Wash Station & 3 Compartment sink.

Sanctioning Bodies & Rules: This is a BCS & AZBarbeque Sanctioned Contest.
If you have never competed before in a BCS event, please take some time and read through the BCS Rules located at http://www.barbequechampionshipseries.org/rules.php

Our BCS Reps for this great event are Nancy Murney & Jim Strickler our BCS Sanctioning Directors.  We are VERY Excited and Happy to have them out here for this event.  They both have great reputations throughout the BBQ Community and both have been Certified BBQ Judges for many years.

Current Prize Fund is at $2700.  We will announce the breakdown at the cooks meeting

Turn in Times on Saturday:
                                     Chicken - Noon
                                     Pork Ribs - 12:45 pm
                                     Pork - 1:30 pm
                                     Brisket - 2:15 pm


Awards: Awards are scheduled for around 5 pm on Saturday.  The Event goes until 7 pm, so there will not be any access to loading out until after that time, please plan accordingly.

Appetizer Party:  Friday night at 8 pm.  We are expecting a very large crowd for this, so please plan to bring some great ones to share.  BBQ Island is once again sponsoring this portion of the event.  The top 3 Appetizers will win prizes.  You do NOT have to be competing in the main competition to enter this.  We encourage all of our AZBarbeque members, Judges & BBQ Friends to bring a dish & come enjoy this event.

People's Choice:  We do have a Blanket Health Permit for us to do People's Choice out at this event.  The catch is that it is ONLY for Pork related items.  Pork & Beans, Pulled Pork, Ribs, Pig Candy, Fatties, Pork Loin, etc.  All items MUST be cooked on site.  You must also have a hand wash station & a 3 bin clean station set up.  The Health Department will be onsite checking temps & checking for these items, so please have them.  VERY IMPORTANT:  WE DO ASK THAT ALL OF YOU DO PEOPLE's CHOICE.  AAI is purchasing 1000 tickets as is another one of our Sponsors, so that's 2000 People's Choice tickets sold before the event even begins.  This is how the Charity is making it's money and the reason behind this event.  WE NEED TO SUPPORT THIS!!  If we don't, we will lose our sponsors and our charity.  Please help out & cook up some extra pork items and have some fun with this.  It's for a great cause and it will make it fun for everyone.  People's choice will work as it normally does at our events. The public will have the opportunity to purchase taste tickets at $2/taste. They will purchase tickets from the Charity.  We recommend you hand out 2 oz samples of your meat or 1 rib bone for that price.  You are Responsible for supplying your own People's choice cups/containers.  It's also a good idea to have napkins and plastic forks.

Judge's Info:  Judges need to be onsite and checked into the Judging room by 11 am on Saturday.
Please REMEMBER... You can not talk with the cooks and teams on Saturday until AFTER the judging, so if you want to socialize, we Highly recommend coming by on Friday for the Appetizer party/Social.
Judges meeting will begin at 11 am and first turn in is at Noon, so come prepared.
If you want to bring home the food you eat/judge, please bring a small cooler so you can keep it at proper temps.

Any other questions, post them up and Bob, myself, Robert or Cheryl will do our best to answer them.

Thanks everyone for your support.

A few more tid bits of info..

GREAT NEWS  - Several of our Sponsors were concerned that we were only able to do Pork for People's Choice, so they stepped up and had me go back to the Health Department & Get another Permit for Brisket.  So we did.  We can now do Pork, Brisket, Tri Tip, Pork & Beans, Pork Ribs & Beef Ribs.  THANKS Burns Pest Elimination & AAI, we do appreciate you both stepping up on this.

This should really make it great for our People's Choice fans.

Next, it is HIGHLY Recommended that everyone handling food in your booth obtain a Food Handler's Card.  They are easy to get, you can take the test online & then go get your card printed.  It's fast, easy & cheap, so please try to get this done.

You need to have a recently certified Fire Extinguisher in your booth.  You can get these at Lowes, Home Depot or ACE Hardware.

I can't stress enough the Friday night Appetizer Party & the People's Choice on Saturday.  We already have 2000 Tickets sold for Saturday.  If you break that down to 20 teams doing PC, that's 100 servings each without the public buying another ticket.  Needless to say, you will be busy.  We are expecting big crowds.

Please invite all of your Friends, Family, Co-Workers, BBQ Enthusiasts, etc. to this event.  We want it to be fantastic.

It begins when the gates open at 11, but if you are not ready until 2, then that's fine, just put up a sign saying available after 2.

Teams,  We are getting close to this weekend's events.

We are very excited for it, it is going to be much bigger than last year's event.  We have over 300 Bikers planning on attending from the Rally, over 40 Muscle Cars for the Car Show, a Meet & Greet with one of Arizona's Top Motocross racers, a Beer Garden, a DJ and lots more.
A few of our Sponsors have stepped up and are purchasing large blocks of People's Choice tickets to give away to the public as they show up.  We have 2000 Tickets already pre sold.

What this means is we need food for all these tickets as this will be the ONLY food at the event.  There are no Food Vendors at this year's event, just samples.

We do ask that you all cook up a few extra Pork Butts, Ribs or Brisket to hand out.  We did have one of our Sponsors step up & pay for the extra Health Permit so we can now do Beef.  So, here is what you can serve out there this weekend.  Pulled Pork, Pork Ribs, Pork & Beans, Brisket & Tri Tip.

Attached are some documents from the Health Department for informational purposes.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you all out at the event.  If you are on Facebook, please visit the event page at https://www.facebook.com/events/355382797924322/ and share it with all of your contacts if you can.  The more people we get out there, the better it is for all of us.

Remember, teams get $1 back for each sample.  Thus, if you do 300 Samples to the public, you get $300 back.

It's a great way to offset some of your expenses.

People's Choice

I have had several new teams ask me how the People's Choice works at events, so here goes.

The Charity, B.A.C.A. (Bikers against Child Abuse) will be selling tickets for both Beer & People's Choice.  All tickets are $2/ticket.  The Beer will take 2 or 3 tickets ($4 or $6) and the BBQ Samples will take 1 ticket ($2).

You hand out a 2 oz sample of BBQ Pulled Pork or BBQ Brisket or 1 Rib Bone for that ticket.

At the end of the event, you bring the tickets back to the Charity & they change them out for $1/Ticket.  So it's a 50/50 and the Charity gets supported & the BBQers get to cover some of their costs with the other $1.

The main benefit of the People's choice is to support the charity, but it also allows the public to taste all the different kinds of BBQ from all of you and it gives you a great chance to interact with the public.  At some of our past events, we had teams dressing up, coming up with cute sayings and doing some pretty cool & creative things to make the public come by their booth.

We hope that most of the teams will do the People's Choice as it does help the event, the Charity & the Sponsors and helps us to continue the event for future years.
